PINKY's Story...
PINKY IS READY FOR ADOPTION. Pinky is a double dapple, spayed female miniature dachshund. She is three years old and hearing impaired. Please see the letter below from her Foster parents.

Pinkie is a delight to be here at our house. She was apprehensive to be with other dogs at first but she did not show any physical aggression to her housemates. She does not mind her housemates sharing her bowl with her. She likes to play on her own and goes on her own beat. She occasionally would play with a squeaky toy but she does not know still how to share this.

Pinkie does love to run quick laps in the hall in the morning or late at night (sometimes both). She loves to go for a long walk on a leash. Pinkie is mostly housetrained for now; she will know where to go to relieve herself if opportunity arise. She has now learned to come to the door; if she is seen waiting and let out then all is good. If she is not given an opportunity then she can go on the disposable wee pad. She is crate-trained no question.

Pinkie loves to “talk”. She is not an aggressive barker. When she goes outside, she would bark for attention for a couple of minutes (maybe she was a town-cryer in prior life)? She does occasionally do a single bark-“just because.”

Pinkie shows no deficit that we could see on her vision. She is able to see far or near. She is able to see my hand pointing/sign and follow through. She has not mastered any understanding of sign language, per se, but she does follow hand direction. She is deaf. She is not aware of any sound when is asleep or under the cover. She does bark when she sees other dog barks.

We really think that Pinkie can be easily adopted by anyone who her can give the time, space and ears to what she has to offer.

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 sex in a home 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 all shots, wormer & flea protection, nails trimmed, the works. They'll come with a basket of goodies, food, toys and a custom made harness. The adoption fee is $350, 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.

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

PINKY, 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.
