BLOSSOM's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

BLOSSOM's Story...
IVY/BLOSSOM. This sweet little one came to us from Panda Paws. Panda Paws kept her puppies to sell but did not want to deal with Ivy, as she had been traumatized by birth and was in seriously bad physical and mental condition when we received her. When she arrived here, she was in pretty terrible shape -- ever so painfully thin, ear mites and parasites, mentally unstable, and not yet spayed. We have nursed her back to healthy weight, and she has been spayed and had full vet care. (ODR Inc. specializes in special needs dogs.)

Ivy is a doxie chi mix. 3 yrs old. Her sad eyes are now bright eyes and she plays now with the doxies here at ODR INC. but she still is frightened and will sometimes touch your hand with her nose. Needs to learn to trust again in a quiet doxie savvy home. We have cared for her for almost a year and she is greatly improved though still a fragile little girl. For 4 months we could not even touch her, but she has made so much progress! She is learning everyday and started eating on her own. Now she loves her breakfast lunch and dinner. Please someone give IVY/Blossom a chance. She is terribly frightened of a leash and will chew it off so a fenced secure home and yard is a must since she might run away. This world is still a scary place for her, but she is well on the mend. Do you a special place in your heart for this special girl? Could be placed with gentle neutered male dachshund.=====The adoption fee is $295.. The fees include spay/neuter, rabies, dhpp, bordetella, pyrantel, advantage treatment, grooming including nails, as well as complete exam at our doxie vet. Each dog comes with all new doxie halter, new toys and blankets. All in all, an investment greater than the adoption fee. Please go to We have very strict adoption guidelines because we require an escape proof fenced yard and someone who is home most of the day. Kids over 10 are ok, but no cats less they've been raised with them, or other small prey animals (these are hunters). If our requirements sound like a good fit, please complete the questionnaire and email it to ====== Please wait to call until we have your information. We're busy trying to find the best homes for all the wonderful dachshunds we have. The best way to get an answer is by email. We make every effort to respond within 24 hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BLOSSOM, 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.
