Hellloooo! My name is Bronco, a 3 month old American Shelter Dog mix pupper! I came in to the shelter as a stray and am now looking for my forever home! I am a playful and energetic little guy, but I am also super eager to learn! If you bring out any sort of food, I will do the one command I know - sit! Look what such a good boy I am! Like any puppy, I will need proper socialization and training to teach me. I may have some potty accidents in the house, or jump up and use my mouth, but with the proper training I know I can be the best dog! Do you think you have room in the home for an adorable puppy like me!?

I'm Bluebell, a loving 9 month old female German Shepherd puppy searching for a new home. I love nothing more than to lean up against you and shower your face with kisses! I am curious about the world around me and love to explore. Together we can have many adventures if you are able to help me get around! You may have noticed that I have some mobility issues in my rear end. I had a surgery to fix one of my hips and I may have a higher risk of arthritis as I get older. For now though, I am all ready to go! I am struggling a bit with strangers when I am on leash and would love a new family that would be willing to work with a trainer who uses positive reinforcement to help me through these. I am currently in a foster home, if you are interested in meeting me, please contact my foster mom at roxannenygard@gmail.com to set up a time! Look forward to meeting you!

 Hi my name is Harper, I am a 1 year old Border Collie mix lady. I came in as a stray so the shelter doesn't much about my past. I am pretty fearful of new situations, but give me a little time to warm up and I love being pet, going on walks, belly rubs, and will shower you with kisses. I need to go to a home with kids 12 and older because of my fear, and I'd do best in a more quiet home. Ask to meet me today!

 Hey, my name is Taylor nice to meet you. I am a high energy 1 year old Husky lady! Like most young Husky pups, I need exercise (and a lot of it)! I am playful and goofy though, and I'd be a great partner if you like to hike, go camping, take beach trips, or jog! I am still learning my manners though, and sometimes I use my mouth to let you know I want to play. I already know "sit" as well, and would love to learn more, whether it be with a trainer or if you could train me! That would be a great bonding experience! I am not going to be a couch potato, and my ideal family will be active and ready to keep me mentally stimulated as well! Because I am so jumpy and mouthy, kids 5 and older would be best for me! Ask to meet me today!!

DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE! YOU'RE IT! Hi guys, my name is Goose, a 2 year old Pit Bull male looking for my forever home. I am such a fun guy, and I am high energy. I am looking for an active family to call my own. I love playing! I get the zoomies quite frequently, I also LOVE toys. Tug toys, squeaky toys, balls, you name it! I do need learn some manners though, sometimes I jump up (and I'm a big dude), or when I try and ask you to play with me I may mouth your hands. I am doing this without knowing it is bad though, and easily stop if there is food involved! Did I mention I love food? I know "sit" and "speak", and am currently working on my leash manners with a harness because I am strong! Any dogs in the home need to come meet me before I go home with you, and I politely ask that there be no kitties in the home as I do want to chase them! Any kids as well need to be 12 years because I am so mouthy and jumpy! I want to make sure they can handle me! Do you have room in your home for me? Please come meet me today!

My name is Buster and I am the dog who is always prepared for a marathon - as long as it is a movie marathon. There is nothing I love more than a cozy, warm bed and some good company. We can discuss our favorite foods while you give me pets and attention. I promise to provide you with lots of laid-back love and friendship if you save me a spot on the couch. I am looking for a quiet home, as I can be fearful in new situations. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years due to some fearful behaviors. Please come and meet me today!

Hi there, nice to meet you! My name is Licorice, a 4 year old little Chihuahua mixed lady that is looking for my new home! I am a bit nervous when I first meet you, but warm up quickly. I love being in your lap, playing with toys, and showering you with kisses. I do have a little bit of a weird eye (the shelter thinks my eyesight is a bit bad in one of them), but don't worry it doesn't slow me down. I would do best in a more quiet home with kids 12 and older. Ask to meet me today! I am in a quieter area of the shelter.

My name is Max 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 can be sensitive to some handling and am still working on my manners, so 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'm Sybil and my favorite hobby is exploring! 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 do not shy away from novel situations and if you can keep me mentally and physically stimulated, I will be your loving friend forever. If you have kids in the home, they should be over the age of 5 years due to some mild food guarding. Please come and meet me today!

Hi there, my name is Dawn. I am a 4 year old Catahoula Leopard dog. I am really happiest being where my people are.

If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. I am looking for a quiet home, and if there are kids in my new home they should be 8 years and up as I can be shy until I get acquainted.

"ARTU" AGILITY VIDEO American Shelter Dog (Border Collie plus ?) - Update

Artu is the smartest dog currently available in the Mcas shelter (imo) and has been available on adoption row for almost 5 months.
He's a good looking medium size dog with a lean muscular runner's build.
Volunteers love to take him out for walks and play as he is very 
smart and athletic

Isn't anyone looking for a young smart active dog?

Since Artu can get excited and sometimes mouthy in play, it's
important to provide training structure when playing with him.


PLEASE Please please give Artu the necessary time to wind down and adjust to a new home!


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

"Artu is an athletic and spry guy. He sure can fly through the air when chasing after a ball! He really enjoys his walks and play time. I could see Artu making a great hiking partner or running buddy."

My name is Artu, and I'm looking for a gentle, patient family to call my own.
I can be sensitive to handling and will need an adult-only home. I will also need to be the only animal in your home. I will thrive in a calm and predictably safe environment. If you are looking for a goofy homebody of a dog, ask to meet me today!
I'm currently learning "Leave It", "Take It", and "Drop It" because I can get a little too excited about toys. Please help by releasing toys before I grab them. I need to go to an adult only home with no other animals!  2 yrs 8 mths, 52lbs

"PIDGE NEWTON" pet pidgeon


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Bronco, male american shelter dog mix, mth,  lbs
 here's my Mcas weblink 
168737
Pidge Newton here. Pigeons do great indoors as family pets. They can also live outside in a predator & rodent-proof aviary but never make a single pigeon live outside alone. They are flock birds and to be outside alone is stressful and lonesome for a pigeon. A single pigeon living indoors adopts the people as flock members. Cages: The bigger the cage the better and length or width are more important than height (pigeons don't climb like parrots). We recommend a minimum cage size of 42 wide, 27 deep, 30 high for one or two (compatible) pigeons.If you are looking for a great bird to add to your flock, Pidge Newton is it! The adoption fee is $15 and does not include cage.



"DOZER" UPDATE - Now in Foster Home senior Pitbull

animal id #121602
My name is Dozer and I'm a friendly dog who is always happy and ready to spend time with my favorite people! I look on the bright side and would love to share some laughs and belly rubs with you. I do have some skin sensitivities that your adoption counselor can speak to you about. I have been started on medication for my skin and ear infections. (update - look so much better!) Getting older is challenging and I've also started to develop some arthritis, so my new family should connect with their Veterinarian to keep me comfortable. I am a great boy that loves to play, but sometimes I'm not sure where to place my mouth. If you have children in the home they will need to be 12 years or older. Please come and meet me today! I am about 13 years old and weigh 68 pounds. I am currently taking a break from shelter life in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact the foster coordinator at 503-988-6670 or email foster@multco.us to set up a time! 13 yrs 9 mths, 68 lbs
