Adoptable Indiana Dog Looks Just like Zero from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'

When I was scrolling through Facebook the other day, I came across an adoptable little dachshund named Spanky. A profile shot of this cute little guy reminded me of a very famous movie dog - Jack Skellington's dog Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas!

Spanky has had his own journey and though once was close to death, is very much alive and healthy!

If you are a regular follower of our page then you already know Spanky.
He came to us when his owner was unable to care for him anymore and he was in terrible health. When we picked him up, the word “hospice” was used.
I get it, he had a skin infection, covered in fleas, severely underweight, both ears were infected, his mouth was so bad you could smell the infection from 6 feet away.
Well, just look at him now!
We estimate he’s about 10years young. Spanky is healthy, happy and living his best life!
Spanky, who goes by the name “Wein” in his foster home is super loving, great in the car, preferably sleeps with his people and ready to meet his new family!

Want to know more about Spanky? Check him out on Facebook!
