Hi there! I'm a goofy Boxer mix lady searching for a new place to call my own. As you can see, I've got some weakness in my back end and I will need to be on medication to help manage my pain in the future. Because of this sensitivity, I would need a home with children 12 years and older. Now that I'm feeling better, I'm quite the sweetheart and enjoy butt scratches and wandering walks! I can be selective with my doggie friends, so I would need to meet any potential dogs I would be living with to make sure we are a good match. Come meet me today!  12 yrs, 56 lbs.

"AL" gentle lovable older pitmix

Gentle lovable older guy, looking for a great indoor home to spoil him!

Quimby L of ResQ Animal Massage spent some time in Al's kennel recently and mentioned:
"Al is a gentle, loving senior boy who is a bit overwhelmed at the shelter and would SO love a wonderful forever home. Pic 1 shows the perfect mug I got to gaze at. Pic 2 is how I left him, sleeping and snuggled in on this rainy day."

"KUMA" German Shepherd - a whole lotta Dog!

I am Kuma, an active and playful German Shepherd. You could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands, I learn with my mouth. To an exuberant dog like me everything is a game, sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up and grab the first thing that looks like a toy. 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 and will be patient and positive to lift me up to my potential! I have shown some reactivity towards other dogs here in the shelter and would need to meet any potential canine friends before going home. I will need an adult only home due to my mouthy behaviors. Please come and meet me today! I am about 1 year old and weigh 85 pounds. Please ask a staff member to see me, as I'm in a different area of the shelter.

animal # 124122 
My name is Maggie May 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 - or at least on the floor next to you! I'm a pretty independent lady that likes things on my terms and can be fearful in new environments. My perfect home would be a quiet, calm environment where I can live out my golden years. I do have some medical issues that your adoption counselor can talk to you about. I am about 13 years old and weigh 55 pounds.

"MR PIBBS - short little Pitmix - West side of town (Bonnie Hays, Washington Co Animal Shelter)

This guy is a real cutie!

Available for adoption at Bonnie L Hays 
(aka  Washington County Animal Shelter)  (the shelter is Closed on Sunday and Holidays)

here's my shelter Petfinder.com link 
Very cool little guy! Loves attention, well mannered. Looking for a great indoor home where he is loved. No cats please, as he has shown too much interest in them.
2 yrs old, 48 lbs, children 6 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.

"HARLEY" young Border Collie mix



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

My name is Harley and I'm looking for a special home. I am very active, love to play, and enjoy being around other dogs. I have met several dogs here at the shelter and have been told that I'm a playgroup rockstar! I still need some work on approaching other dogs on leash, but I am fabulous once in a group. My biggest issue is trusting new people and may take a few meetings to feel comfortable. My perfect home would be one where I have plenty of room to run with not a lot of foot traffic, so to say. It would be awesome to have some sort of job on a farm where I could exert all of my energy and use my smarts! I am very smart and have quite a few tricks up my sleeve too! My new home should be feline free with adults only. I am a fabulous boy once I get to know you, and would love to sleep in the bed with you! If you are interested in meeting me, please ask a staff member to meet me as I am in a different area of the shelter. I am about 1 year 3 months old and weigh 45 lbs

"INGRID" shy lovable Lhasa


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink  (10/18 potential adopter)
124100
My name is Ingrid and I am 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 am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. I can be shy and nervous at times, so if there are kids in the home, I am asking that they be over the age of 12 years. I also have some medical issues, so please speak with your adoption counselor about my needs. I am about 10 years old and weigh 13 pounds.
