It got scarily close to Pete's euthanasia time in a dismal Texas shelter. It was definitely through no fault of his own..it's all a matter of space. He came in at a very crowded time (but then again..all times are very crowded) and was therefore given a very short window in which to be rescued. After a scramble by our very compassionate Texas rescuer (she has a soft spot for a super cute fuzzy guy with a handsome temperament!), Pete was pulled out of the shelter at the last 2nd possible.... (read more) His rescuer, shelter workers and Pete's foster haven't stopped raving about this adorable and engaging guy ever since. There was some indecision about Pete's breed mixture...the shelter initially said Dachshund/Terrier mixture, but upon further vetting, Pete was said to be a pure breed Doxy by 1 veterinarian and another veterinarian agreed that that was very possible. All we know is that Pete is truly adorable, very gorgeous and would be a good addition to any family.
