CONNOR's Story...

Connor is an Irish name meaning, among other things, Lover of Wolves or Lover of Hounds. Not sure whether this little guy really loves wolves, but he is a hound and he does love people! For those who keep an eye on this site, you've seen Connor here for the past couple of years. He came to ODR, Inc. after being tortured and abused. Without going into detail, he experienced some torture that left him with nightmares and a fear of men. We are delighted to share that CONNOR is now much, much better!

He is smart, funny and loving and works very hard to be the perfect little doxie and his most fervent wish is to have a loving forever home. He is honest and gentle and also works hard to keep his energy under control. He loves going for walks and car rides. He loves to play outside, and gives gentle kisses. He adores his squeaker toys. He barks only when he needs something such as food, or wants to let you know he needs to go potty. CONNOR will do best in a home with no cats or other children. Are you ready to make CONNOR's wish come true?

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 10 or older (some exceptions IF the dog is a puppy or the child has been raised with a doxie). We prefer no 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 CONNOR a happy, carefree life again? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at and email it to: - the adoption committee will be in touch with you within 48 hours so please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CONNOR, 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.
