COOPER is an adorable 3.5 year old, 13.6 lb Chocolate and Tan Chiweenie (Dachshund Chihuahua mix) who has come to Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. in hopes of finding a new, loving forever family where he can be spoiled as the only pet and give you all his affections in return. Cooper is a little shy at first, but he is totally a lover and (believe it or not) a non-barker.

COOPER loves to swim and really loves to have his tummy rubbed. If you say 'tummy rub,' he will flop onto his back and wait. He is leash trained and knows basic commands of sit, stay, come (he responds best if he knows there is a treat involved). COOPER is also house and crate trained. He is trained to go potty in the back yard and can hold it for long periods. He can also ring a potty bell to go outside.

Cooper is fearful of other dogs, so we believe that he will do best as the only fur child in a family with a stay at home parent (work from home or retired) and only older children (over age 12), who are familiar with the special needs of Dachshunds. As your only pet, he will be loyal and 100% yours.

Like all Dachshunds, COOPER is high energy and enjoys playing and warming his little bones in the sunshine, so along with regular walks around his neighborhood, COOPER 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 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.


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 COOPER a happy, carefree life again? 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.
