After Woman's Death, 14-Year-Old Dachshund Finds New Home

A local death investigator recently had the opportunity to give new life to an old dog.

When a young woman died earlier this year, two of her three dogs were quickly adopted. But a 14-year-old dachshund was having no such luck.


So one of the people charged with investigating her death, Shane Sheets of the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office, adopted the dog.

Now named Dave, the dog has a home with Sheets and his family in Green Isle.

“The mother of the deceased was ecstatic because she knew we were taking good care of the dog and he was great with our kids, phenomenal with our animals and he just could not have been a better dog,” Sheets said.
