Hi! My name is Eddie and I’m a nearly 7-year old Dachshund/hound mix weighing around 11 pounds. One of my favorite things to do is snuggle in next to you on your lap, especially if you also wrap me in a fuzzy blanket. I love, love, love balls! I love to chew on them, have you throw them for me, and I’m getting better at bringing them back. I also love to play tug-of-war with ropes, braided blankets and tugs. If you’re lonely, I’ll chat with you, especially around meal or treat time. I have a cute little chat and I’m certain you’ll understand every word.
I have great manners. I know sit, stay, and I’m learning lay down. I let my people through the door first, and I feel very comfortable on a leash.
I really don’t like to share your lap or your home with other dogs, cats or children under the age of 12. If I absolutely must share, I’d prefer to make friends with a confident cat who lets me go my way while they go their way.
People say I’m super smart! I learn new things quickly, especially when enticed with treats. I need someone who is willing to keep up on expanding my socialization skills with consistency and training as I get a little too excited seeing and meeting new people and pets. In fact, it would be best if I had a home that was on a quiet street so I can relax and not have to worry about people passing in front of windows all the time or lots of noise from the street.
I have some joint pain and anxiety, but with my meds I’m not as nervous, not in pain, and jump about 3 feet in the air off all four legs when I’m over-the-moon happy. I also have vasculitis which just means the edges of my ears can get crusty. I’m on an inexpensive, safe medication that has made my ears–one of my best features I might add–soft and supple.
I have so much love to give. I just need to find the right, forever, home. To inquire about me, please send an email to, or contact my foster mom, Micki, at 503-805-9305. Please leave a message if she doesn’t answer. If you’re interested in adopting me, please download and fill out a Pixie Project application and email it to I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $200. The adoption fee will be donated to training sessions with Denise at Behave to help ease Eddie’s transition. I also come with my medications and all veterinary records.
