Love Dachshunds? Enjoy highlights From Wienerfest

Wienerfest Home County Festival is one of the largest breed specific fundraising events in Canada (almost 8,000 attendees). It operates under the umbrella of Tiny Paws Dog Rescue and  Helping Homeless Pets to help rescue dogs in need like Blue below. It is set in beautiful farmland in Ontario a few hours west of Toronto.

Watch Blue’s heartbreaking story of his rescue here:

We love Wieners AKA Dachshunds as they are a smart, fun, loyal, cute looking breed of dog. If you are thinking of bringing a Dachshund into your family, read about them in our breed library and talk to people who have them.

Thanks to Bullwrinkles, Royal Canin and all the other sponsors vendors and Wiener Lovers for supporting the event. Enjoy our re-cap and photos from the day.

Celebrity Spotting

We got to meet adorable Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund and Oakley. We follow Crusoe’s travels and viral videos so we were thrilled to see him in real life. We loved meeting his parents/managers and grandparents too.

Kilo the rescue Pug would have been too stressed with the 2-hour drive each way and all the crowds, but he wanted to support other rescues so he was there in spirit.
