BUDDY is a sweet, adorable,sometimes a little shy, smooth black and tan, male mini Dachshund. He is loving the Rescue and just starting to get used to all the new doggie friends and volunteers. He enjoys his new friends and loves to be cuddled. This sweet, loving little man is doing really well. Although he has a low grade heart murmur, the vet says BUDDY is very healthy and will live a long life. He doesn't take medication and is a real go getter...he runs and runs all day long. Buddy plays ball too...he LOVES it, He even loves to fetch it (if by fetch, YOU understand that to mean you throw the ball and he goes to get it for himself to carry around with him and take to bed with him). He will bring it back to you, you just can't be in a big hurry. BUDDY is truly a unique doxie and lives life on his own terms. He is loyal, smart and cute as can be. He loves his big crate filled with lots of blankets that he can snuggle into a ball. Speaking of his crate, Buddy loves to bring his ball and his bully sticks to bed too. He is SO darn cute...BUDDY is SO ready for his very own forever home. He will do best with a stay at home, doxie savvy mom (retired/work from home) to love, cherish and teach him and that BUDDY can love, cherish and learn from for the rest of his forever days. He could also be placed with a small, sweet female Doxie to have as a sisterly companion.

Like all Dachshunds, BUDDY is high energy and enjoys playing and warming his little bones in the sunshine, so along with regular walks around his neighborhood, BUDDY needs a secure fenced yard to run around and explore safely. While small in stature, doxies are big on personality and don't generally do well in apartments, with all of the noises and traffic that come with multiple dwellings in a confined space. To best set up our doxies and their new families for success, ODR, Inc., adopt to families who live in single family homes with secure fenced yards.

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 non 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 BUDDY a happy, carefree life? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at and email it to: The adoption committee will attempt to be in contact with you within 48-72 hours. Please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.

About Oregon Dachshund Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Oregon Dachshund Rescue Inc. is a 501 c3 non profit with 25 years experience of rescuing Dachshunds. My goal is to provide homes for unwanted, special needs and abandoned Dachshunds. I do not breed or sell Dachshunds for a profit. I receive into rescue 1 to 3 doxies PER DAY. Before adoption all of my rescues are spayed and neutered, made current on rabies, DHPP, bordetella, fecal and dental if needed. The rescues are also groomed, nails done and one month Advantage treatment. I take great pride in finding wonderful forever homes for my rescue Dachshunds. My criteria is very strict because I want to insure the safety and future of each one of these very special rescues. I do not give refunds of any kind for any reason but will offer an exchange for another Dachshund, if you choose. The dog's character, health and physical condition represented by this Rescue is in good faith. The new owner(s) must agree to release, hold harmless and forever discharge Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. from any and all claims arising from adoption of any of our rescue Dachshunds.
