Meet Tazo: a paralyzed Dachshund who was surrendered to Animal Haven when his humans could no longer afford to take care of his medical issues.


But even with all of these odds stacked against him, nothing gets this sweet pup down! He more than keeps up with all of his shelter pals and has a lot of love to give – even going so far as to babysit the kittens at Animal Haven.


We decided this spunky character of a pup absolutely deserved the ultimate Dog’s Best Day – including a surprise ending that all shelter pups dream of. 😉

A big thanks to our pup-loving pals at Water4Dogs for giving Tazo his first successful hydrotherapy session, Shake Shack for the dream doggy feast,The 3D Printing Store and TurboRoo Designs for the sweet new set of wheels, and Ace Hotel New York and Southwest Airlines for making sure TurboRoo could make the trip to bring them to Tazo. We couldn’t have spoiled our guest of pawnor with you!

And of course, congratulations to Tazo and his new family – for a rescue pup, adoption day is truly the best day.
