Mother and child: Dani and her puppy Donald are adorable together and looking for a loving home

Dani is a sweet, sweet, tail-wagging, happy mommy dog. She is not much more than a puppy herself, maybe 1+ years old.

Dani looks like cross between and Dachshund and a Beagle. She was found in mid-November in Merced, probably hit by a car. She was in and out of vet offices for two weeks, and diagnosed with a broken pelvis (now healed). It was not known then that she was pregnant. Once discovered, she was within a week of giving birth. Dani was rushed north to a foster home with the Milo Foundation, and gave birth that night!

Dani had three puppies early on January 7th. Sadly, only Donald survived the birth. Because of this, and their closeness, and how adorable and funny they are together, we want them to be adopted as a pair. Donald is such a little doll. He is so advanced for his tiny size.

You can meet Dani and Donald at The Milo Foundation’s next East Bay adoption event which is on Saturday February 25th, 12-4, at the Rockridge Pet Food Express store, Broadway at 51st Street in Oakland. Dani and Donald can go to their new homes after March 12th.

Berkeleyside’s new weekly column, “Adopt a Pet”, hopes to help match pets with a home and loving owners in our community. We are partnering with the Milo Foundation to introduce, every Saturday, just one of the many pets that can be adopted. The Milo Foundation, a nonprofit, no-kill organization, provides an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and sanctuary until permanent homes can be found. Contact them directly to find out about many other animals that are available for adoption.
