A staff member writes: Meet Duchie the Dachshund! He was found dragging himself around the streets of Brooklyn. His finder brought Duchie to ACC to help him find a home. Our vet has determined that Duchie is paralyzed, but will still be a great pet. He could benefit from a set of wheels for mobility, but first, find him a home and help him get to a vet!
