Are you the type of person who just Loves little Dachshunds, or are you the person who loves ALL Dachshunds (like we are at Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc.)? Have you been hoping to find one of those one of a kind, sweet doxies who loves everyone, doesn't bark much and enjoys being with you? If so, we'd like to tell you about Miss. Lucia. Miss Lucia is a LOVELY smooth black and tan female Dachshund and a very special senior girl. She was severely over fed and is now on a strict diet. She needs someone who can see how wonderful she is and how much active doxie there still is (under the chubby outer layer) and will follow her diet instructions to help her recover her optimal health. LUCIA needs many short walks and the possibility of some swimming, as this would be easier on her joints. As we mentioned, she is a beautiful black and tan lady, who gets along with everyone She does not bark except for when she wants a bite of food. She is crate trained and sleeps in a crate without issue. She also needs to eat in her crate especially if in a multi dog household.
LUCIA will do best in a Doxie loving 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. Also, Lucia should not be around large dogs as they could jump on her and hurt her. She COULD be placed in a home with a gentlemanly neutered male Dachshund as a companion,
Like all Dachshunds, LUCIA is high energy and enjoys playing and warming her little bones in the sunshine, so along with regular walks around her neighborhood, LUCIA 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.
WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN WITH YOUR LITTLE RESCUE:
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 $495, 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 LUCIA a happy, carefree life that she deserves? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at www.odr-inc.org and email it to: email@example.com. The adoption committee will attempt to be in touch with you within 48 -72 hours. Please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.
