"CHERRY" animated little Boston Terrier


Cherry's right eye has medicated ointment covering the surface, and it should look much better than it does in these photo once it heals, but she will need a good home that will help in recovery.  Cherry is very fortunate that MCAS has a veterinary/animal health staff to monitor the animals!

Hello, my name is Cherry! Are you looking for an upbeat new companion? I have been curious about my environment and very energetic! If you haven't noticed, my right eye is a little under the weather but luckily my shelter friends are starting me on the road to recovery. My perfect adopter would have no children under 10, be active, willing to provide me some time to build a trusting relationship and financially able to provide good vet care. Please come down and meet me. I am around 9 years old and weigh 13 pounds

"BARON" quite mellow for a German Shepherd boy


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink  (7/7 has an adopter)

Hello there! My name is Baron and I'm looking for a loving family to be their loyal companion. Did you know that German Shepherds are one of the most loyal breeds of dog? I am sure to make a wonderful companion and family dog. I am very mellow for a Shepherd, but of course will need plenty of exercise. Going for a walk or run would be fantastic! I already know how to sit, but am very eager to start learning more and I am very food motivated, so training should be easy. I am looking forward to being a family dog and am not one for being left outside. If you are an active person that has the time to put some training in me, please come down to the shelter today! I am about 2 years old and weigh a thin 60 pounds.

"MUGGLE" a friendly and lively Puggle


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

I'm Muggle the puggle. I'm about 3 - 4 years old and weight 24lbs. Don't be fooled by my short legs, I've got things to do and places to go, people to see. I'm a great little guy who is friendly, outgoing, loves use my nose. The shelter says I could stand to lose a little weigh so fun activities like nosework or tracking would be great! Even though I don't have the shorter nose of a pug, my owners should exercise caution during hot weather so I don't overheat, and walk me on a harness to protect me throat. To sum me up in one word - Yippee!

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Are you looking for a little Lady? That would be me! I'm a 2 1/2 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix and at 11lbs. I'll fit nicely in your lap. The person who couldn't keep me said a lot of nice things about me. I'm housetrained, lived with another dog and was around kids, although they didn't say anything about cats. Take me home and I'll show you my outgoing friendly side.





 
 

"BIG MACK" gentle yellow Lab

 
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
Big Mack is currently in aMCAS Foster Home

here's my Mcas weblink

Greetings, Portland. I am Big Mack, a strapping labrador retriever mix who is currently the star attraction in my foster home. I am a super laid-back guy who does great with other dogs and wants to be near people whenever they're around. I am demonstrating excellent indoor manners on a schedule, and I am getting acclimated to crate training, but truth be told I really, really want to share your bed at night. I am a champion cuddler who occasionally moans in contentment. Also, I love, love, love the water. I jump into the kiddie pool every opportunity I get, and I would love to go swimming together. I am best walked using a gentle leader. Walks are the best, and I get so excited to smell all the smells. I have had some surgery recently - the shelter removed some tumors. You will want to talk to your adoption counselor about what that all means for my future care. All I know is I feel great! I am truly a wonderful boy who will make the best soul mate ever. I am about 7 years old and I weigh about 75 lbs. If you are interested in learning more about me, contact my foster home at danni@dannipdx.com.

"EARL" the Mearle - Catahoula/pitmix



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink

Hi my shelter name is Earl which rhymes with Merle a name for my distinctive pattern to my coat. I am a handsome boy that needs a loving family to help get me in tip top shape. I may need a special diet for short term or furrever. At the very least I will need a high quality food. The shelter is recommending I get my heart checked out as I have a heart murmur. Please ask your adoption counselor more about this.
I will respond well to classes so the shelter is offering 1/2 price adoption if you sign up for reward based training classes prior to taking me home. Because I can get excited easily with play etc the shelter is asking that families with respectful children at least 10 years old ask about me. Won't you ask about me today?

 
Earl  loves the Pool!!! Funny, he kept digging around the sides of it, and yeah...he was just trying to swim!!!  Sorry Earl, the poor is NOT deep enough! Maybe your next home will take you swimming!

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hi there. My shelter name is Big Gus. I got into a scuffle with another dog at the pub and took the worst of it but I'm a nice guy who is very people friendly. As you can see, I love my food a little to much so I need a health conscious owner who will help me lose some weight through diet and by building up my tolerance for exercise. I'll be happier, healthier and live longer

oh gush I am such a HAM!

"NALLA" I love people, and love swimming and more

Hi there, Nalla here.  I've been "Kenneling it"  for some time.  Everyone wants the best for me, and anyone who spends time with me falls in love.......I promise I'll be a sweetheart companion...

I've been used as a breeder mom, have been in a few shelters - mcas and Lincoln city....and for whatever reason, I haven't yet found my true love -but I know that you are there!
I LOVE people, love the water - although I may need a life jacket, and promise to be a great dog!

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hi there, I'm Nalla. I'm a 5 year old female Pitbull mix. As you can see I've had a litter of puppies while I was out and about, but I'm done with that now and ready to settle in as someone's pet. I am 60 pounds of people lovin' Pitbull, active and full of kisses and nibbles. Because I'm so friendly, the shelter recommends kids 8 & up because my tail could be dangerous to kids at eye level. My best match with other dogs is a medium to large respectful male. Come meet me, I could be your new best friend
btw- I love to swim in the river - but I kinda sink and  maybe need a life jacket:)


here's me with Katia on our recent Rooster Rock field trip!
 
 

 
 
yup, me at the MCAS shelter

 
so, I just want to mention that some of the other dogs here  like big boy Rojo and my silly friend Boss Paws have  been too "chicken hearted" today to even try going into the kiddy pool on their own! Can you believe it?   but hey Not Me! Not your girl Nalla,
I am the courageous one ;)
