A Rescued Dachshund Won't Return to His Family as Planned -- And That's Probably Good

The couple who abandoned Otto at a shelter asking for his euthanasia turn out to be neither elderly nor destitute as they'd claimed in a note.

God how awful. And my heart sunk with this story initially. Crappy heartless people.

The important thing here, is that this little guy, Otto..will be safe and sound, and remain in the care of Leave No Paws Behind Rescue. Kudos to Ms. Toby Wisneski for taking good care of this elderly dog and stepping up to help. The owners should not own another animal at all, after lying and abandoning this little fella. Thanks, Cher for this update.

Sick pathetic disgusting owners - I pray when they are elderly no one, and I mean no one cares for them and that they just get dumped in some rundown shelter so that they can think back to what they did to this poor little dog.

When I told my brother about this he said to me "I don't trust that they are telling the truth, if it was me I would never give the little dog back to them!" And now I see that my brother was right!

The Bible says that those who lie will not inherit God's kingdom!

Thank You to LEAVE NO PAWS LEFT BEHIND AND Otto's rescuers for all they have done for Otto. Tese people did a terrible thing leaving the dog in a basket with a note, and their claims were all false, and they claim to be religious??
Thanks Cher for sharing.
