FLDR got an email that a female Dachshund was found abandoned and alone in an apartment in Jacksonville, when an eviction notice was served.  The apartment management did not know how long the dog had been there with no food or water!  They called Animal Control, but because it was a Friday, they would not be able to come get the dog until Monday or Tuesday.  The apartment management reached out to us to help.  The sweet, tiny, female Dachshund was very emaciated, you could see every rib, was covered in fleas, had hair missing due to flea dermatitis, was dehydrated and had scars on her back from possible abuse.  When they first found her, she was so scared she ran into a closet and yelped when they tried to pick her up.  Florida Dachshund Rescue agreed to take this female.  One of the apartment employees was finally able to make friends with the female she named Rosie.  She got her out of the apartment, took her home, bathed her and got all the fleas off her little body.  The next day one of our foster homes got Rosie and helped transport her to Lakeland, to another foster home.  At the vet that day, Rosie was so scared and just screamed when touched.  They had to sedate her to check her over, draw blood and clip her nails.  Luckily she is heartworm negative.  The vet thinks the scars on her back were due to some kind of abuse and she is very fearful of men.  Rosie is too unhealthy to get spayed, so she will need lots of good healthy food and TLC for a month or so.  Anything you can donate for Rosie's care is greatly appreciated.  We can't help these sweet babies without people like you!
