Dachshund whose owner died desperately needs home, faces euthanasia in ten days

See also

Ollie the Dachshund was a beloved family member, but when his guardian passed away, no one in Ollie's family wanted to take him in. Instead, his guardian's family decided that euthanasia was the best option for this loving dog. Now this beautiful little guy is in a race against the clock - if he isn't rescued or adopted within the next TEN days, he'll be euthanized.

This wonderful boy will be ten years old in September and he still has many happy, healthy, loving years left. Ollie is an unaltered male and he weighs approximately ten pounds. He has lived isolated in an apartment for all of his life, so losing his guardian and then becoming homeless must be very traumatizing for him.

Because Ollie has lived alone with his guardian, he is untested around cats, other dogs, and children. Ollie is trained to pee on potty pads and he loves to cuddle and play with his stuffed animals. This gorgeous guy is healthy, up-to-date on his vaccinations, and as sweet as can be - he only needs his own special someone to reciprocate his love. Can you help him?

Ollie is currently located in Portland, Oregon. If you would like more information about Ollie, please call Tamara at (541) 915 0073 or email her at kalapuaponyranch @ gmail. com or call Patricia at (425) 221 1081 or email her at canuckluv4 @ gmail. com.

If you can't offer Ollie a home, please share his story. Time is running out for this wonderful dog!
