"MYSTIC" loyal somewhat insecure red/tan Lab mix

She's a goofy Lap mix looking for a home. Mystic is now in 
"a quieter area" as she is stressed out when on the floor.
Poor girl. Please come visit her and see if she might
be good fit for your home.

 I think Mystic can be somewhat nervous when first asked to interact with strangers, but instead of withdrawing, she just starts to act hyper. But she likes people. The shelter noise is really hard for her!! I don't think Mystic will be a super hyper dog once she gets settled into a stable home but she would like to have extra time to adjust to it. Give her a chance!

Mystic loves her walks and especially enjoys sniffing around.


"Massage schmassage. DIS MY SNAKE! Mystic dazzled me yesterday with her playfulness and affection - what a goofball! She loves balls and (apparently) toys and will charm the biscuits off you 💜 Come meet this lovely lady at Multnomah County Animal ServicesResQ Animal Massage

"Mystic also knows "shake" and loves attention... She's a very sweet girl!"   Kelly

My name is Mystic and I have never met an activity I did not like! If you love exercise and keeping active, then we will be fast friends. I will go for a run in the morning, a hike in the afternoon, play fetch in the evening, and unwind with some play at home before bed - and I would love nothing more than to have someone who can keep up with me. It is important that I have an outlet for my boundless energy, so let us get together and explore the outdoors! I will need to be the only animal in your home and if you have kids in the home they will need to be over the age of 12 years. Please come and meet me today! I am about 4 years old and weigh a chunky 84 pounds. (UPDATE, Mystic has slimmed
down quite a bit since this description was written)

Hello! My name is Dorito! I am a 1 and a half year old Chihuahua. Can you tell where I got my name from? My ears look like cool ranch Doritos! I am a little shy at first, but give me some love and attention and I would love nothing more than to curl up on your lap or go on walks! I went home for a weekend with a staff member, because I was a little stressed here in the shelter and I really showed my personality! I give LOTS of kisses, and I LOVE to play. I have some toys that are super fun that I love to carry around in my mouth. I also got along great with the dogs I've met. I even get along with cats (even though sometimes I like to chase them, I am learning not to though). I am also a giant cuddle bug. I love sleeping right next to my person curled up in bed. It would be nice for me to go to a home with another confident pup pal, because I do have some separation anxiety from my people. I am also crate trained, and house trained! My perfect home would be one that is going to be patient with me so I can blossom into the amazing dog I know I can be!. male, 1 yr 6 mths, 5.6 lbs

Hi! I'm Anton! An active and playful 3 year old Pit Bull, you could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands I learn with my mouth.

I am up for anything and ready to amaze my new family with my skills. I am looking for a family who does not take life too seriously that will be patient, positive and lift me to my potential of being a perfect pup! I do need a home with no kitty friends, they are just too fun to chase! I will also need a home with children 8 or older. Ask to meet me today!  3 yrs 67 lbs

I am a curious, smart dog and I love to learn new things about the world around me. I would love to have a job to do or learn some new tricks to give my mind something to work on.

I am Ticket, a fun loving and energetic Pitbull mix. Dogs like me love to get out and play but are not always sure what to do with our mouths. I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see, and the game is on! My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup. I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 5 years due to my jumpy behaviors.  2 yrs 42 lbs

"Loved her! She's very affectionate and smart, and thinks she's a lap dog!"
Bonnie L. Hays Shelter volunteer

Sasha has a great attitude towards life and enjoys every minute of her
time spent with you. Loves to go on walks and is quite spunky for her age of 10 yrs.
Quite a mystery mix, some German Shepherd and some of us see maybe some
Elkhound in her mix? She's really more of a medium stature, but
given her current quite chunky girth, she weighs in at 79 lbs and would love her
new home to help gently lose weight please.
Sasha can be selective about her doggie friends but that doesn't mean
she won't enjoy all other dogs, just some (which is pretty normal for many dogs)
children 12 and up






=========
If this dog is appropriate for a home with children, you must bring children aged 12 and under to the shelter with you for the adoption process. Not all dogs and children are a perfect match, so we want to make sure that the dog you select is a family-friendly dog.
If you have one or more existing dogs in your home, we require a "meet and greet" between your dogs and the adoptive dog at our shelter. Please plan to bring your dog(s) with you before the adoption can be finalized so we can be sure that the dogs and the humans all agree this dog will be the perfect match for your family!

Adoptions are on a first-come first-served basis among approved applicants. We cannot hold pets, so when you are ready to select a pet, please come prepared.

I am Charlie, a lab mix that's full of life. My greatest love is the outdoors. I would love to go on a long stroll with you or roll outside in the grass while you barbecue or garden. My foster parents have helped me heal over the last two months from a major leg surgery. We'll have to take it easy for awhile until I make a full recovery. In the meantime, I've also been working to get slim and trim. I am a very strong girl and want to jump and play with new people I like. I'm seven. but still very playful. Sometimes I resource guard but as long as you let me do my thing we'll be fine. At home I'm pretty easy going. I'm kennel trained, potty trained and I know all my basic commands. I am currently in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact the foster coordinator at 503-988-6670 or email at foster@multco.us to set up a time!  female 7 yrs 4 mths 75 lbs

 Willow here! I am a 6 year old pittie mix who is as sweet as pie. I love, love, love toys, zoomies in the backyard, doggie massages and little rump scratches. I love to snuggle and am an easy house guest. I am house trained and good on the leash. I am a nervous girl though and need a family who can help me feel more safe. I am nervous around loud sounds and need a little more time to warm up to most men. I would love to have a canine friend in my new home if you have one but would be ok either way. I would love a home with kids over the age of 8 years. I have a bit of stiffness in my hind end and would prefer a home with no stairs or maybe just a couple. I am taking a break from the busy shelter in a foster home. If you would like to meet me, please email the foster coordinator at foster@multco.us or call 503-988-6670 to set up a time.  female 6 yrs 72 lbs





"ORION" UPDATE - IN FOSTER

May 14 - UPDATE - Orion is now in a Foster Home! Yay!!
Updates coming soon

May 12 - Orion has been in the shelter for 4 months. He's a volunteer favorite and really enjoys his walks and people attention, but would like to find a good home of his own! He was adopted and loved the children, but was protective of them when visiting strangers came into the home...and because of this, the shelter is requesting that he go to an adult home.

"I wish you could “sponsor “ a pet like other shelters. I cannot take Orion but he seems wonderful! I hope he finds a happy, forever home soon!" J  

"He's such a good boy! I volunteer there and gave him a bath last week and he was so good!"

Hello! Orion here. I am an active Pitbull mix who loves to play with people. Visitors sometimes ask about which dogs have been here the longest. I'm definitely on the short list of long timers here. I wonder sometimes if it is my scars (I don't remember how I got them), or my allergies (feed me great food and they are manageable), or my ear treatment (they're looking great, don't you think). I maintain my happy-go-lucky disposition here at the shelter even though I would love nothing more than to go home with you. I'm looking for a home with adults where I can be the one and only animal. I am an exuberant guy, and I can jump up and be playfully mouthy, especially if I think you've got a toy, because...well, playtime! I am only about 3 years old, male and weigh 6o pounds. I am currently taking a break from the shelter and spending some time in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact the foster coordinator at 503-988-6670 or email at foster@multco.us to set up a time.
