Otto's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Otto's Story...
The Fearless Otto is a 4-year old male neutered dachshund. He is high-energy and very intelligent. Watch as he shoots out of his kennel like a rocket! He's very curious about his surroundings and will do best in a home where he can get plenty of exercise, mental stimulation and companionship. We think he would do well in agility and would need basic training classes.

Otto is a little slow to trust humans but once he does, he is very devoted. He is affectionate and loves to doze on your lap, burrowed under a blanket. He is crate-trained and sleeps peacefully through the night.

His front left foot is malformed, but as you can see from the pictures, it doesn't slow him down much. It occasionally pains him but overall he as adapted quite well to it. He has a habit of chasing cats that run from him, but ignores cats that don't run. We think it's more of a play/chase thing than any inherent cat aggression, but it will really depend on the cat.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otto, 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.
