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.

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.
