    Story

    I am Hans' breeder. He is a miniature smoothhaired Dachshund and was born on the 10th of July 2017. At two days old he became a little lethargic, he had a trip to the vets, they gave him subcutaneous fluids and he picked up, we thought maybe it was dehydration. A week later he became lethargic again. After three more trips to the vets who weren't particularly helpful he deteriorated further and yesterday (4/8/2017) after my insistence he was referred to a specialist in Derby. A liver shunt was suspected but no one really knew what was wrong, he was a third of the size of his siblings. He is currently undergoing tests and although he wasn't expected to survive the night is still fighting. The initial cost for the admittance and battery of tests is estimated at between £1500-£2500. If he does have a liver shunt he will be operated on at approx 6 months old at a cost of approximately £3500 which is expected to cure him.
    As his breeder I take full responsibility for his care and the cost of it, the money from the sale of his siblings will go towards his care and my parents or myself will be keeping him for ever, whatever the outcome.
    I thought long and hard about setting up this page for fear of abuse but quite a few people in the Facebook Dachshund community have said that they would like to help so I have swallowed my pride and here it is.
    Should any money be donated and not used for Hans' treatment I will be forwarding it on to a Dachshund Charity, of which I will decide when and if the time comes.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi all, sorry for the delay in providing you all with an update, it's been a bit of an awful week. Hans is doing well, he had a setback last week with diarrhoea but is back on the antibiotics again and seems great at the minute, I guess we will know more when he is taken off of the antibiotics again. Someone suggested it would be good for me to breakdown his treatment costs so you can see where your donations are going.....I will post on another update as running out of characters..... Nicki & Hans xx

      Wow!!!! I cannot believe that in less than 48 hours since starting the Just Giving account for Hans my amazing friends, family and daxi family have reached my target! I am humbled and overwhelmed and eternally grateful. I have had a couple of conversations today with the specialist looking after Hans and it's not looking great, despite the fact he has gained 150g and is hydrated and eating and not in pain his WBC continues to rise. I asked her what we should do and in her opinion we should fight for a little longer, so that's what we will do! X
