Dog of the Day: Onyx the Dachshund Mix

I got all sorts of information about this gal: her name is Onyx, and that the fur on her back is a little patchy and oddly patterned because she recently had back surgery to repair a herniated disc. What I didn’t get was her breed. We’re guessing dachshund mix, but if anyone wants to correct us, feel free to do so in the comments.

Second picture moved after the break.

She was a real sweetheart, and moving around pretty well, but still obviously not yet fully recovered from her ordeal.

Despite the injury, she was still hyperkinetic. These are the only two non-blurry pictures of the 14 I took.

    Hey Adam, I was wondering if you could help me with my dog because we got him at the Humane Society and I am not sure what all he has in him but omg he definitely looks like Oynx in the face. If it is okay, I can send you a picture of my dog.

    Hello, wondering if you ever found out what kind of breed she is. I have one that looks exactly the same.

      I’m afraid I never did. She’s a tough one. Do you have any pics of your pup online? A few more pics of a dog like this might make it easier to figure out…
