Hi I'm Gretel! A shy but very sweet Terrier mix that came into the shelter with my friend Hansel as strays, no one came to reclaim us so now we are looking for our new home!

 Hi! My name is Kenji, a sweet 9 year old Rottweiler mix fella! I am a BIG cuddle bug, but do need some TLC. I nuzzle into you for constant pets, and LOVE being with my people. I do need to lose some weight though, so my new family will support me with exercise and appropriate feedings to help me along in my weight loss journey! If you are looking for a calm and sweet older gent to add to your family that isn't too much energy, I'm the guy for you! I do need to go home as the only animal. I need all of the attention to myself. Ask to meet me today!

 ===========================
Here is Kenji prior to the weight gain. Please help him get into good shape again


Kenji now weighs over 50 lbs much more than he did in this photo

"GONZO" VIDEOS! Sharpei (lab? shepherd?) mix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location

It was nice to see Gonzo so relaxed today.
I wish this guy would find a good home!


 NEW April video - Best Jowls award
Watch 0:14 - 0:20 for "best Jowls"



Gonzo, sharpei (lab?) mix, 2 yrs, 65 lbs
here's my Mcas weblink  
177178
Gonzo is in a quieter area off the main adoption row, so please
ask to see him!
Have some dragons that need slaying? Gonzo, your Sharpei mix knight in shining armor - or fur, that is - is here to help! I'd love to channel all my energy into adventuring throughout my kingdom! I can be a bit rowdy at times and am still learning all the etiquette needed for the royal court. Think you can help me with my manners? If my new castle has any children they need to be 15 years or older and there should be no cats.
I am in a different part of the shelter taking a break because I am stressed, please ask a volunteer or staff member to meet me!
"Gonzo has tons of energy, is SUPER motivated by toys! We've been working on sit, lay down and shake. No treats needed - he's motivated by the tennis ball! 
After a good romp, he gives great snuggles. 
He is going to make a great companion for the right owner." Brandy T
===========
"Every moment I spend with this dog makes me love him even more! I would confidently recommend Gonzo for adoption! He is super smart and willing to please. He just wants kisses and pets. He gets better everyday, even in a shelter environment. 
I have fallen in love."
Mcas volunteer

"I have to follow this blog; hopefully in a few months I will be moving to a cat & dog- friendly apartment or house, and I hope to get a shelter dog. This particular dog, a lab/shar-pei mix, is gorgeous." C George


Gonzo is amazing at being able to do "sit and wait" until the ball is thrown. He can even ignore other distractions (like barking) when he is focused on play or training.


Watch Gonzo's new video!  Gonzo deserves a great compatible home - SOON. He's been waiting a long time

"LUNA" - VIDEOS lovable little white Pitmix

Luna has lingered for too long in the shelter. Dog lovers come visit her, she is a great dog!!!
Luna is a sweetie, loves belly rubs and being with people. 
She is a very pretty, medium sized dog with warm friendly eyes and a valentine "Heart" on her tail. She likes to play!
Luna's has leash reactivity towards other dogs -
but she is ok when walked from a distance from them.  In a devoted home Luna can learn better leash manners as she is very smart and willing! There are group dog walks and group classes in the local Portland area which help a leash reactive dog be a calmer walker and help the owner be a calm and confident leader. Come visit and you'll understand why we like her so much!

Luna, female Pitbull, 3 yrs 53 lbs
here's my Mcas weblink 
182033
I am Luna, 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! I will need a home without other animals, and if you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 12 years due to my jumpy/mouthy behaviors. I can also be reactive towards other dogs while on leash and would love to take some reactive rover classes. Please come and meet me today!

Luna and the shelter dogs need toys!

"TURBO" good hearted guy- big shelter dog mix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location
 
Turbo, male Shelter Dog mix, 3 yrs 76 lbs
 here's my Mcas weblink

WOW HI! My name is Turbo, a 3 year old Shelter dog mix. I have a lot of energy, IS THAT A TOY!? Sorry, like I was saying, I have a lot of energy. My ideal family is active, likes to play tug-o-war, and aren't couch potatoes! Because I can be a bit of a bull in a china shop, I need to go home with kids 12 and older. I have met dogs in the shelter, and would do best with a more calm, or smaller dog than me. Any canine pals in the home should come meet me first though! Ask to meet me today!




"WILLIE" gentle mature Boxer? mix


Update May 2019 - Willie still needs a new home

Willie was adopted by a wonderful MCAS Volunteer, and she loves him very much. It breaks her heart to give him up, but he is too much for her allergies. 

Please read on to learn more about this sweet boy!
Please contact yukonsue@msn.com to inquire about Willie.
Squeaky or bouncy – what do you look for in a toy? Hi I'm Willie, and I haven't met a toy I didn't like! I'm an active 10 year old beautiful brindle boy. Maybe a boxer mix? I'm a little uneasy around people and things I do not recognize, but I come around pretty quickly - especially if you have treats! I seem to be initially more fearful of men than women. I am looking for someone who will create positive experiences for me, and who will only ever use positive training methods with me. When I warm up to you, I am a very playful boy who loves to play tug-o-war and fetch. And don’t you worry…I definitely know how to cuddle! I absolutely LOVE going for walks and taking in all the scents and sights. Even though I love all three dogs in my current home, I can be selective while out and about. If a dog approaches me and is happy, I will normally respond the same way. It's only when the dog growls at me that gets me excited. I walk great on a leash, and I know sit. I'm house-trained up to 8 hours before needing to go out. I've been around respectful younger and older children, and I do well with them. But pretty please no cats. I cannot resist the urge to chase them. I would love to have another dog to play with in my new home. My current mom loves me to the moon and back, but I have really ramped up her existing allergies beyond what she can handle, so she knows she needs to find me a terrific new home.
I am neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date with my vaccines. If you think we would be a good match, please contact yukonsue@msn.com. You won’t regret choosing me as your best buddy.


"I love this dog so very much! I want to adopt him but the hubs says 3 is the limit. I would adopt him without a doubt in my mind that he is perfect! He is shy but don’t let that deter you. I would do anything to see him in a forever home"


"This is a perfect animal! I love him so much! He deserves the world! If I could I would adopt him, but I have a full house"

"WANDA" SPECIAL NEEDS Sweetheart young Chihuahua mix

ADOPTED!
May 2019

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location
 
Wanda, female Chihuahua mix, 1 yr 6 mth 9 lbs
 here's my Mcas weblink Adopted!
192163
Hi I'm Wanda. A sweet girl looking for my new home. I love people and snuggling with them is what I love to do the most! I am a bit shy at first but treat me sweetly and I blossom before your eyes! I am currently sharing an office space with the animal care supervisor and she says I am a terrific roommate. I am mellow and easy-going but still playful and eager for attention. You may have noticed I have a hard time walking, but it doesn't slow me down! I will probably have a hard time walking for the rest of my life, and am looking for a new home that will help me get around! I love to be carried like the princess I am and I don't weigh much. What do you think? Can we walk together into the new chapter of my life? An adoption counselor can speak to you more about my medical needs. Ask to meet me today!

 =======

Wanda has won a place in many hearts at the shelter. She's a very dear and affectionate little dog. I believe the MCAS shelter is checking into the feasibility of getting a special wheelchair for Wanda, but I don't know anything more.

Cool Dog! Make sure to give Archie time to settle into his new home, so he can feel secure and bond with you.Archie is a big goofy guy, with a personality more like a Lab (not like the Akbash breed type at all) Very playful, loves the ball!
