Meyer's Info...

Meyer's Story...
Meyer is a young male (18 months old) dachshund. Meyer was left in a shelter for 3 months, and he has some scratches on his nose. These are healing up nicely since he no longer lives in that environment. He is a lively dog, very sweet natured. He has gotten along with everyone he has met, even other dogs. He does like to eat dinner by himself, because he tries to eat everyone else's food and this generally does not go over well. He is well behaved on a leash too. He wants all the attention you can give him. (TIA)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meyer, 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.
