Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Maybelle Mcas weblink    
animal # 547564
My name is Maybelle and I'm looking for a new home! I am a very gentle lady that loves meeting people. I also really enjoy playing with toys and have the cutest little pounce! The perfect home would be one that gives me lots of massages, belly rubs, and plenty of kisses. I am in need of a diet and exercise plan as you can see and will need to build up my stamina, as I can get tired quickly. If you think we could make a fantastic match, please come and meet me today! I am about 8 years old and weigh 69 pounds.
Asher Mcas weblink    
animal # 601244
Hey everybody! My name is Asher and I'm looking for a new home. Unfortunately my owners were no longer able to care for me and I have ended up here at the shelter. They had great things to say about me though. I am calm in the home and very loving and affectionate. I have lived with kids, other dogs, and cats. I'm also housetrained and know how to sit and down. If you think we could make a great match, come on down and meet me today! I am about 8 years old and weigh 66 pounds.
Fozzie Mcas weblink    
animal # 600821
My name is Fozzie and I'm looking for a new home. I am a social little guy that enjoys being around people. I came to the shelter as a stray, so not much is known about me. I can say that I have met a couple canine friends here and did very well. Although, I'm not a fan of other dogs jumping all over me, so I would need a calm, respectful friend to hang out with. As you can see, I am in need of some good TLC and weight loss plan. I do love going for walks, but tire easily. So my exercise will need to be slowly adjusted. If you think we could make great friends, please come and meet me today! I am about 7 years old and weigh 33 pounds.


Hank Mcas weblink    
animal # 599663
My name is Hank and I'm looking for new home. I am a very sweet boy that loves toys and am looking for a home where I can play to my hearts desire. If you have a tennis ball, we are sure to make fast friends. Unfortunately my owners were no longer able to care for me due to my anxiety around small children. I am asking for a home were kids in the home will need to be at least 12 years old. My perfect home would be out in the country where I can enjoy the serenity, chase some balls, and be busy! Apartment life would not suit me as I have been known to be a loud talker. I am very affectionate when I feel comfortable and just need the right fit. Is that you? I can be fearful with some dogs, so if you have another canine we will need to meet before I go home. Please come and meet me today! I am about 6v years old and weigh 40 pounds.
 
 

Frannie Mcas weblink    
animal # 597743
My name is Frannie. I am a little girl with a big personality! I love to cuddle and be given affection from my people. Once I get to know you, I am quite the character and prefer to be right by your side rather than picked up and held. I am looking for an adult-only home as I do not like to share my things and will need a home who can work on and manage my resource guarding in the home. If you think you may be a good match, please come and say hello to me at the shelter today! I am 6 years old and weigh 15 pounds.

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Clifford Mcas weblink    
animal # 599571

My name is Clifford 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 am very active and love to partake in all conversations. Because I am a talker, I may not be best suited for apartment life. If you think we could make fast friends, come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 11 pounds. I've had episodes of hind leg weakness/incoordination. The cause is unknown, and it seems to be improving, but it may continue to occur intermittently.

Gigi Mcas weblink    
animal # 600413
My name is Gigi and I’m the dog who is always prepared for a marathon – as long as it’s 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 can be very shy, but once I trust you, we will be great friends. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be 8 years or older. Those little ones can make me a tad nervous. Please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 10.5 pounds.

 
Teddy Mcas weblink    
animal # 600414
My name is Teddy and I'm in search of a new home. I’m really happiest being where my people are. I would love nothing more than the curl up on your lap or trot along with you on walks. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I’m the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. I can be a little shy until I get to know you, but once I trust you we will be fast friends. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years, as I'm just not too comfortable with the little ones. Please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 16 pounds.
Daisy Mcas weblink    
animal # 600414
My name is Daisy and I’m a friendly dog who is always happy and ready to spend time with my favorite people!

"BARNEY" darling spry med size Gent

Would you like to meet an easy medium size Senior guy who still has a very cute trot in his walk, does a cute "sit pretty" occasionally when he likes you and you have a treat,  and who responds well to happy talk? Barney would love to meet you!
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal id # 577105

Hi there! My name is Barney and I'm a sensitive boy that's looking for a quiet home. The shelter is overwhelming for me and I can't wait to find a loving family. I can be sensitive with handling, but once I feel comfortable I become very playful and bouncy! I love toys, but don't like to share, so I need a home where there are no kids under 12 years old. I should be the center of your attention as the only animal in the home. At 12 years old I am a very spry guy that loves going for walks and exploring, then maybe take a little snooze by the fireplace near you. If you think you could give me the home I'm looking for, please come and meet me today! I weigh 31 pounds.

 



"SHELDON" sensitive short and sweetie guy (maybe some Corgi?)

Sheldon is so worth visiting! He wasn't comfortable with the young child in his loving former home, and regretfully this sweetie was given up to the shelter when he bit at some point. He is a nice dog! He is now looking for a loving adult home. Give this shy little guy a chance, and with happy talk, space and treats you'll see his fabulous happy self emerge. I did in just one photo session with him and even though he wasn't very comfortable with the camera - he is  a bit nervous with things he doesn't understand -  Sheldon quickly decided that I am his best new friend - He is a very loyal boy!

animal # 599034
My name is Sheldon and I'm looking for a new home. I am a shy guy, but once I feel comfortable, I am fun loving, goofy, and playful. I enjoy dogs my size or smaller, but can get intimidated by larger dogs. My new family will need to be an adult only or home or kids in the home must be over 16 years old. I am uncomfortable around smaller kids and that is why my previous family could no longer keep me. I hope you can give me a quiet home where I can enjoy be my true self and shower you with love and kisses. Please come and meet me today! I am around 4 years old and weigh 31 pounds
 
 

 

"CINDY LOU" easy house guest

Many  people love dogs with dress up props (the success of  MCAS "Pitties in Pink" is a shelter is just one testament to that), whereas some people dislike it. I've always been a fan of the William Wegman goofy dog photos and don't see any harm in photographing dogs in clothing/props, as long as the dog isn't upset (and people don't treat it like it is a human baby or ornament or something...)
Cindy Lou, a nice easy house guest, has been looking for a good home for close to 9 months, and would LOVE to get your attention!  All Cindy Lou wants is someone who decides to come to the Multnomah County Animal Shelter to meet her, and happily adopt her, and give give her the  retirement home this old gal deserves!

Come visit her!

Hi there! My name is Cindy Lou and I'm looking for a nice retirement home! I am just the sweetest lady who enjoys giving kisses, going for walks, and spending time with my humans. As you can see, I am in need of some good TLC. Though I'm quite lumpy and bumpy, I still have a lot of pep in my step and can't wait to settle in somewhere for my golden years. My new home will need to be an adult only home without any other dogs. I am around 12 years old and weigh 68 pounds.

"ARTIE" and "HERA" dynamic duo Border Collie mix sisters!

These 2 sisters are a great pair. It was so much fun watching them check out a new environment -  quite synchronized :) They even took string cheese treats sitting together with no rivalry (not always a good idea to do when treating 2 dogs at a time)
Hera and Artie are only a year old, and are an easy medium size and would be really fun to adopt!!

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 

"Hera" animal # 599673   "Artie"  animal # 599674  (7/23 possible adopters)


Hera Mcas weblink    

Artie and Hera here! We are two sisters who really know how to have a good time. We love to play with each other, chasing and wrestling, and enjoy each other's company. We would love to be adopted together as a pair since we prefer our sisterly bond! Artie is a bit more confident and selective of her dog friends, while Hera tends to be more playful and outgoing with canine buddies. Please come down and see us today! We are about a year old and weigh around 30 pounds.

"PIPER" animated little Boxer/pit mix

I really like Piper, she's a fun dog. Piper has lots of fast, and funny crazy "Boxer moves" when playing and running around.

animal # 596307
My name is Piper and I'm looking for a new home. I can be fearful of new people and get easily started in new place. Once I trust you though, I am a silly girl that loves to run cookies all over the place. My new family will need to help me build my confidence around new things with lots of positive reinforcement. I really enjoy my treats and toys and am eager to learn. If you have kids in the home they will need to be over the age of 10 years old, as I don't always like to share my things and I will also need to be the only canine in your home. If you think we could be perfect for each other, please come and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 44 pounds.

"LEONARDO" (somewhat Special needs) sweet Pitbull


 
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
mcas weblink  
animal # 592305

Hi there! My name is Leonardo and I'm looking for a new home. I am a sensitive guy that can get easily frightened by new things and people. It appears that I haven't had a whole lot of work on the leash and with general handling, so my new adopters will need to help show me that the world isn't so scary. I will need lots of positive interactions in my newly adopted life. Once I feel comfortable though, I am quite the clown. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 10 years old. I came to the shelter with a pretty severe skin condition that I have been recovering from. It was pretty uncomfortable, but I am on the road to recovery. I was also born with deformed front legs and although they are not causing me any pain now, I may develop arthritis as I age. Please speak with your adoption counselor about my medical needs. If you think we could make a great match, please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 50 pounds. I amm ok with some other dogs with the proper introduction and supervision but must go to a home with NO cats.
 Leonardo loved his  massage today - thank you ResQ Animal Massage!

thanks Quimby, love this pic :)

 Leonardo was born with severely deformed front legs.
 He would love to be adopted by someone who will provide him extra TLC as he ages
Maybe you know someone, and can "share" Leonardo?

"FIONA" sweetie Hound/ Lab/ pitmix(?)

It would be fun to do a DNA test on "Fiona." She has what is commonly called the "Smart Bump" on the crown of her head, like many Retrievers have (ditto the floppy ears.) I'd call her a Lab/pitbull? mix....I love her eyes. Fiona is a sweetie, hope she gets a great home!

Hi there, I'm Fiona! I'm an adorable pitbull mix lady looking for a new home. I'm a mellow girl who enjoys a nice calm walk with lots of good smells. I like to be near my favorite people and get extra attention! You may have noticed that I'm a bit overweight and have some bald patches, this is from a medical condition called hyperthyroidism. With medication and consistent vet check-ups, I should still have a normal life but my future family should know that my condition will require frequent bloodwork and vet visits. Think we could be a match? Come say hi! I'm about 8 years old and weigh 87 lbs.

"LITTLE BEAR" and "VIOLET" bonded Poodle mixes

 
Little Bear and Violet were on hold when they had Kennel Cough,
but are now available!

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 

Little Bear mcas weblink 
animal # 570331
   
Violet mcas weblink

Just like birds of a feather, we want to go home together. My name is Violet and I'm about 4 years old and weigh about lbs. Little Bear and I are very close so we need to be adopted as a pair. We lived in a quiet adult home with no kids and would do best going to another adult-only home. I love Little Bear, but not enough to let him eat my food, so we should be fed separately. My person said I am housetrained and like to play ball. We don't really care for all the noise and commotion here at the shelter, so please go slow with us because we need some time and space to show our true personalities. I weigh about 25 lbs.

"MIA" smart little Pitmix would love to learn tricks


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id #594550

My name is Mia and I'm ready to find a new family. My favorite hobby is exploring! I’m 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. As long as you can keep me mentally and physically stimulated, I’ll be your loving friend forever. I will need some work on basic manners, as I am high energy and can get scared of the leash. I will need to be the only canine in your home as I can get uncomfortable around new dogs and if you have children in the home, they will need to be over the age of 12 years. Please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 38 pounds.

"STEWIE" little Staffie Bull terrier/pitmix

 
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Mcas weblink  
animal # 584160

My name is Stewie and I'm looking for a special home. I can be a little shy when first meeting new people or being in new environments and will need a family that can help build my self confidence and teach me good manners. I haven't really had the best life and have never been taught the simple things. I am a very social guy, once I get to know you and love to give kisses and jump all over you. I also really enjoy playing with toys and other dogs. I should do very well in a home with another social dog. I have gotten into a little trouble in the past and have some special requirements for my adoption. I will need a secure enclosure, as I can jump and climb over fences. I should not be left unsupervised in the yard. I will also need to wear a muzzle while in public. I hope this doesn't deter you! I am a great boy that just needs some training and socialization. I am eager to learn and please my people. Please come and meet me today. I am about 2 years old and weigh 49 pounds.

Hi there, anyone up for a Cookie? If you are then you should ask to meet me. I 'm an active girl ready for fun adventures. The shelter says that by using reward based training methods I could be "one smart Cookie". I need to be the only pet in the home. Because I like to jump & can be a little rough, the shelter is recommending kids are at least 12 years old in my new home. Regardless, I'm as sweet as my name & have lots of love to give! I'm about 3 years young & weigh about 43 lbs.

My name is Charlie. Ever heard of a big dog who thinks they are a lap dog? Well, that's me! I just can't get enough of my people. I love to hang out with them and get lots of attention. I would love a home who will keep me active and happy. I've made lots of friends here at the shelter and love nothing more than getting fawned over! I need to go to a home with no other dogs as I have not always gotten along with them, but I have been successful with cats in the past. Come on down to the shelter to get some love! I am 8 years old and weigh 80 pounds

"HALSTON" Amazing update - delightful Special Needs senior Poodle mix - Indigo Rescue


Amazing Update July 12th Halston suddenly started walking/running around!  Following, are my words only, not those of his vet or rescue home (see video for more info)  I met Halston months ago, and this change is incredible!  Halston  hasn't currently been on drugs/ restricted exercise (as there didn't seem to be any medical reason to prescribe either one) and he was doing the wheelchair outings 1 or 2 times a week, and the rest of the time was ok with dragging his back legs when he wasn't being carried.  There is no current medical explanation on why Halston has suddenly been able to use his back legs, wag his tail and actually run around but he now is doing just that!!!

Back story -  Halston was a shelter stray who when seen by vets/vet specialists was diagnosed with a severely broken spine, had no feeling in his back legs or tail and his prognosis - would never be able to use his back legs again. 
Who know how long this mobility will last, but there seems to be no reason to restrict him - and Halston is very happy!!!!
   see his new running/play video here


=======
This little guy is quite amazing!  Halston is a "special needs" senior - and may live the rest of his life as a Rescue foster dog...but I hope someone wonderful sees him and adopts him - NOT to feel sorry for him, but to enjoy his joyful spirit

 Halston's first time in a wheel chair

Available for Adoption with Indigo Rescue!!
Halston is living in a foster home
here is Halston's petfinder weblink
 what a smile!
 



Petfinder - Halston is a 5lb poodle mix (we aren't sure what with), that is estimated at 12+ years old. Halston came in to rescue with a broken back. We didn't know his back was broken at first, because he was walking on his back legs, they just didn't work very well and he would sometimes he drag the tops of his feet, or topple backward into a sitting position. We took him to two vets, one for x-rays, and one to see if physical therapy might help him, and finally we learned that not only was his back broken, but his spinal cord is either severed or severely damaged. There is no signal traveling from his brain to his rear legs, or his tail. So, it sounds like he should be completely paralyzed - why could he walk (a little)? Turns out, there is a thing called "spinal walking", and this is how Halston can get up on his back legs. It's really amazing. You should google it. Anyway, we aren't sure what happened to Halston, either he was hit by a car, or a dog shook him and broke his back.

Halston is NOT sad about his condition. He is super active, and wants to GO, desperately. We felt so sad watching him try so hard to run that we found him a wheelchair. This wasn't an easy task because his legs are long and the size of wheelchair that was light enough for him to pull was too short. The size that was tall enough was too heavy, and pulled him over backward. We finally found him the right size wheelchair, and the minute we put him on the ground in that wheelchair, he was on the move! He LOVES it! He can go, too. We were running most of the time just to keep up with him! See a Youtube video of Halston's first wheelchair walk using the link above.

We also had a dental done for Halston because his teeth were terrible and he had probably never had a dental before. Turns out he had two oral-nasal fistula's (holes that go from where a tooth used to be, up into the sinuses), and getting his teeth fixed up made him feel so much better! He started eating better and gained a pound in just over a week. Yay!

Halston is looking for a home where he doesn't have to be alone most of the time. He gets sad and frustrated with nothing to do. He loves to flop around and burrow in pillows and blankets (especially if they belong to a human), and of course, he absolutely needs to go for his special wheelchair walks. In a perfect world, the veterinary physical therapist says he would benefit from physical therapy, especially their swim therapy, but it is not a requirement for his adoption, just on our wish list :o) If you would love to have a special guy, who makes you smile and inspires you every day, Halston is YOUR GUY!! Inquire within...

Adoption Process: We are not first come first served. Indigo Rescue focuses on finding good matches between dogs and families to ensure life long adoptions. We deliver all dogs to their new homes. All of our dogs are in foster homes. We have a few of our dogs available for meets at the Tanasbourne Petco on Thursdays from 4-7pm and at PetSmart on 185th every other Sunday from noon until 3pm. Or, if you're interested in a particular dog, you can send us an e-mail with answers to the questions below. Just copy and paste the questions into your email to respond. If the dog seems compatible with your situation we'll set up a time for you to meet the dog.
