Ben, pending home's Story...
To start the adoption process, please fill out our form on our web site at: and see the Adopt a Dog/Fee page with more details on how we adopt our dogs. Please read. There are a lot of questions answered on our site and personality details below about each dog listed again only if folks read.

If the dogs are listed here then yes they are still available for adoption, They will stay listed until we find them the right homes with our adoption paperwork all finished. Thanks. Those marked pending home by their names are on a test drive in their new homes so see if they work out. Once they past their test drive only then we do mark them as adopted.

Please indicate which dog you are interested in on our pre-adoption form on the site above. You can also read about our adoption process, our requirements needed to adopt a hunting dog breed from us and our paperwork needed to adopt from our rescue. This is a short adoption process but please read first. Thanks so much.

There is an adoption fee of $175 for this dog. No phone calls or emails please. Please see our web site for more details om how we adopt BEFORE emailing.

Ben came from a hoarding situation so we do not have a ton of details. We are guessing he is mostly Dachshund and perhaps a tiny bit Chihuahua thrown in. He is pretty scared so needs some more socializing in his new home as well as housebreaking, but he is very sweet and cuddly once you get down to his level. UPDATE: He is learning a lot and liking more people because we keep socializing him. He will make someone a nice boy in his new home.

We are guessing he is about 8 pounds so a mini, about age five, and neutered. This one just loves laps and a doll being a longhair.

He would need a home with another happy, small dog in the home to help teach him how to be a real dog and someone with time to continue his training by not hiding him at home. Ben needs to go out in the world and see fun stuff plus go shopping for new toys, etc. We also give a lifetime of free training advice if folks just ask because we always get them well socialized. We always have volunteers who come and help dog hug as well to get them less scared of people before they are adopted.

He would do better in a home with kids age 12 and up so folks have time to work with him and get him socialized and house trained although in a few short weeks he is coming along great there. Plus he is crate trained so soon he will be house broke as well.

If you do not have a fenced yard in town do not apply to adopt our dogs. We do not adopt to apartments, condos or town homes with shared walls. Thanks.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spokane 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 Spokane 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 Spokane paves the way for another one to be saved.
