LEONARDO's Story...
LEONARDO. Special Guy. Leo is a great dog, but he does have some issues. NO CATS for sure! And he is a big active fellow, so needs large fenced yard, not an apartment. AND he really has an issue with BIG DOGS. He goes pretty nuts when he meets them on walks. And so adopter cannot have other dogs who are Large. Need savvy adopter.Fine with dogs his own size. Gentle with humans, and oh so playful -- loves to chase his toys. He is not food aggressive. He will give you kisses for thanks. He wants to be a lap dog. Need doxie savvy adopter as Leo can be a bit hard to handle since he is a small standard/large tweenie.

Personality Plus! Come meet this beautiful white and red long-haired tweenie dachshund. He's only a pup, 23 months old. Leo knows his basic commands and is a clever tyke -- able to open certain door knobs with his mouth and paws. Leo loves playing with his toys, and of course sleeping with you in the big bed. Kids 12 or older OK. =====The adoption fee is $295, no exceptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LEONARDO, a Portland Dachshund puppy 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 puppy 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.
