Born blind and deaf, Piglet needed a good home.  One where his “disadvantages” would not prove to be insurmountable. One where his mission would be to inspire and educate others about adopting a special needs pet.  As with any special needs animal, he required a home where those challenges would be met with love and kindness.  He got that wonderful loving home from his foster care humans.

Piglet is a deaf, blind double dapple Dachshund Chihuahua mix rescued by Colbert Veterinary Rescue Services from a hoarding situation in Georgia. On March 4, 2017 Piglet was brought to CT for foster care and was ultimately adopted by his foster family.

My home is filled with special needs animals that have been discarded because of age or other issues.  They are survivors not victims.

Piglet is a survivor on a mission to encourage spay and neuter of dogs and cats, educate the public about the severe consequences of double dapple/merle breeding, and to motivate others to adopt special needs animals.

I have learned much from each one of my special needs animals.  They always seem to work around any problems.  In many ways, they remind me of the Black Knight in Monty Python’s Holy Grail.  They don’t give up!  That said, once comfortable in their forever homes they all test limits.  Piglet is no different.


Yes, they get time outs.  He’s just one of the pack learning that there are rules.  Piglet just wants to be one of the gang.

Animals live in the moment.  They generate a positive outlook in life because each unique moment is to be relished and savored.  Sharing those moments it is quite easy to love them while they  take on the turns and twists of life’s path.
