This determined Dachshund named Hope refuses to let being blind and deaf get in her way.
The double dapple dachshund was left at a rescue centre a few years after being born. Her disabilities were the result of bad breeding, but somehow Hope more than manages.
Lauren Ann Kramer-Theuerkauf, from Freeburg, Illinois, found Hope on a rescue website and instantly fell in love with her and reveals that Hope is anything but docile.
Whether she’s sniffing out the cats in the house to chase or stealing a nap in the linen closet, Hope is always happy, playful and downright inspiring.
