BENTLEE's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

BENTLEE's Story...

Like the luxury automobile that inspired his name, once you get to know this fun, handsome, loving three year old, 9.6 lb white and brown dachshund, you'll fall in love immediately and want to take him home. BENTLEE enjoys car rides, cuddling with his family, playing with other dachshunds and of course...chasing squirrels. If you are one who enjoys the finer things in life and can give undivided, unconditional love and understanding attention to BENTLEE (and maybe some of your awesome home cooking), perhaps you will be the forever home he longs for. He will certainly give all of that and much more to you.

Note from ODR, Inc: BENTLEE had a great life up until a few months ago when his family made a major move and couldn't take him with them. Things would have been OK but when thrown together with other male dogs and one mean cat in a house with lots of activity, things changed for our little doxie. As a result, he continues to be a little timid and needs reassurance that things are OK.

Our Criteria (aka the Fine Print):

Based on 30 years of experience with rescue doxies, we have pretty strict criteria. Do you work from home/stay at home/work part time? Have a securely fenced yard? We do not place same gender dogs in a home unless they were raised together, and children need to be 10 or older (some exceptions IF the dog is a puppy or the child has been raised with a doxie). We prefer no smokers and a home with no other small animals (ferrets, hamsters, etc) Cats are on a case by case basis depending on the dog. Remember these are rescues, many were surrendered because of these issues.


All our dogs are fully vetted, including spay/neuter, rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, Pyrantyl, nails trimmed, and dental when needed. They'll come with a basket of goodies, food, toys and a custom made harness. The adoption fee is $395, sorry no exceptions, as this covers the cost to rescue them, vet them and take care of them while in our rescue. It also helps towards the care of other doxies that come with huge vet or dental bills or need extensive behavioral training.

Can you give BENTLEE a happy, carefree life again? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at and email it to: - the adoption committee will be in touch with you within 48 hours so please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BENTLEE, a Portland Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Portland, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Portland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
