Idaho rescue suffers tragedy in house fire


A quick-spreading house fire claimed the lives of 14 Dachshunds under the care of Dachshund Idaho Rescue in Fruitland, Idaho on June 9.  According to rescue operators Karen and Robert McCombs, the fire spread so fast that they and their 16-year-old son were only able to save four of the 18 dogs in the home.  The rescue is currently accepting donations of money and household items through a Chip-In fund set up by Wiener Races For Rescue.  To learn more or to make a donation, go to
