BENSON's Story...
COURTESY LISTING for BENSON. This dog is NOT at Oregon Dachshund Rescue. For information please contact Nolan at (425) 220-5664 or


BENSON is a 5 year old, 13 lb, smooth Red, male Dachshund looking for love and a forever family in all the right places...While his current human family is no longer in a position to care for him (due to no fault of his own), they have asked Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. to help him find a new, loving forever family. BENSON is a sweet, fun-loving Doxie who has experienced a recent paralysis due to an IVDD injury, so he will do best as the only fur baby in a Doxie savvy a family with a stay at home parent (retired/work from home) who can love him and give him the special care he needs while he continues to heal.

His current human Dad had this to say about BENSON:
He loves to cuddle and lay with me on the couch or in bed. He loves his squeaker toy rabbits and others. He loves to play with his toys and with people and other animals. He loves to sniff around the yard, although will chase rabbits (not currently, although he would try). He loves attention and being scratched behind his ears and being held. Benson often seems intrigued watching me as well as others. He makes such funny noises and cocks his head and is just adorable.

Please note that this is a Courtesy Listing for a doxie that is NOT at Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. ODR-Inc cannot make any guarantees or claims about this doxie...we are just helping to network him and help them find his forever family. For information, please contact Nolan at (425) 220-5664 or

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 12 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BENSON, 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.
