Derby's Story...
On your mark! Get set! Go! And they’re off! Welcome to the 2016 Family Dogs Love Derby! I am your host, Derby, and I will be bringing you play-by-play analysis of this momentous event! For those of you unfamiliar with the Derby, here is a quick recap: I am Derby and I have been looking for a forever home ever since I was picked up off the streets. Entering into a system of unfamiliarity and an ambiguous future, I decided to create my own destiny. After arriving here at Family Dogs, I founded the Love Derby to help me find love in no short order! It’s a race to my heart, and you’re in first place! Bold, I know, but I can’t wait around here forever! A couple of obstacles to look out for while you are out on the course are my overprotective nature, my aversion to cats, my need to find a home with respectful children 12+, and my bossy attitude with other dogs, regardless of their size. But once you cross the finish line and reach the winner’s circle of my heart, you’ll be rewarded with my excellent personality, exceptional crate training and housebreaking skills, prize-worthy loyalty, and blue-ribbon cuddle powers! So pick up the pace cuz if you win the Love Derby you’ll get to love Derby! 3½ years old-8lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam,1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Derby, a Portland Italian Greyhound/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Dachshund for sale in Portland, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/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 Italian Greyhound/Dachshund breeders who help with Italian Greyhound/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
