Tommy, dachshund

Tommy is a male dachshund dog currently housed at Oregon Dachshund Rescue Inc.

Tommy gets along well with other dogs. He is looking for cat-free family. Oregon Dachshund Rescue Inc., however, wants to place him in a home without small children. He's neutered, and he has had all his shots. He is already house-trained.

From Tommy's current caretaker:

Tommy is a 10 year old black-and-tan silver dapple dachshund. This sweet boy’s owner died several months ago and he was left to fend for himself for several months. A neighbor came over every other day to feed them and refresh their water. You would expect this poor dog to be traumatized and scared, but instead he’s loving and very low maintenance. Tommy is just the most obedient smart little guy we’ve met in a long time.

Baxter, golden retriever and chow chow mix

Baxter is a male golden retriever and chow chow mix currently residing at Woofin Palooza, LLC.

Baxter loves kids, cats or dogs. He has been vaccinated. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Baxter's current caretakers say:

Baxter is a one-of-a-kind guy. He is the product of horrible breeding. At one year old, he has hip dyplasia and bad joints in his front legs. Despite this he is a very, very happy dog. He is looking for a home that does not have small children, not because he is bad with kids (he is not), but because of his medical issues he cannot have children putting extra pressure on his back by leaning on him or trying to ride him, etc.
