Rochelle grew up with rescue dogs and had always planned on adopting a Dachshund. When she heard that Sean Casey Animal Rescue had five adoptable Dachshunds, she headed over to the rescue to adopt one.   Fortunately for Henry, just one look was all it took.  Rochelle saw him and knew she wasn’t going home with a Doxie.

Omg, SO cute – and love that he inspired this venture! Adopting a rescue dog has really inspired me in a lot of ways, too – such an amazing thing to get to do, for us as much as our pets.
