"FRANNIE Jean & SALLY Mae" bonded sisters


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Frannie Jean Mcas weblink   Sally Mae Mcas weblink
animal id # 581182, 3

Frannie Jean (and Sally Mae) are looking for their forever home! Though she may be a little shy at first, once she gets to know you- she is a sweet little girl! Frannie Jean will blossom in a calm and confident home. She would benefit from basic obedience classes to help build her confidence. Due to being shy, Frannie will do best in a home with older children or adults only. Frannie Jean would love to go home with Sally Mae- her best friend as the two of them are pretty bonded. (5 yrs old approx.)

"JET" fun young German Shephard mix


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal # 581051

The name is Jet! That's because I am faster than anyone else around! As you can see, I am a bit underweight at the moment, but otherwise healthy, so with a little time and care (and lots of treats!) I will be back in shape in no time. I can tell you that I LOVE to play fetch, and could play for hours with my new friends. I can be a little shy and skittish, especially to loud sounds and fast movements, so my new home should take it slow with me, and always keep me on leash or in secure containment until I get more confident. I have a lot of potential to be a fun dog and I hope I can reach that with you! I am 1 year old and weigh 53 pounds.


 

 
 
 

 

"SNOWBALL" lovely white boxer


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal # 581050

I'm in a different area of the shelter, so please ask to see me!

Hi! My name is Snowball! My friends describe me as a silly boxer cause I love people and love to play! I am deaf so I need a family that is experienced in working with deaf dogs and can teach me doggie sign language! I like being around people so I think I can be a good learner if you have the time and patience to teach me. Sometimes I get scared of things I cannot hear- so I would do best in a home with older children who can help to teach me. I am pretty goofy as well so a sense of humor is a must. Do you think you could be my forever home? I am in a different part of the shelter, please ask about me today.



 
 

"GRADY" smart active and goofy Pitmix

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink
animal id # 577720

Hi! My name is Grady. I am a goofy, long-legged young man who's eager to please and wants nothing more than someone fun to keep me happy and healthy! I love to romp around and play, and will need lots of physical and mental stimulation in my new home. I know sit and will even drop toys softly during playtime. I am still a young guy, and would love someone who is willing to continue training me to be a good canine citizen. I have shown pro-social behaviors with dogs, but I have a very rough playstyle that may not suit every other dog, so a meet and greet will be necessary before I go home with you. I would also enjoy a feline-free home and children 12 yrs and up. I am 1 year old and weigh 60 pounds.

animal # 580757

 Lucy is about 4 yrs old, and a chubby medium tall size (her weight n/a here, but about 50lb maybe?)

Lucy is a sweet and gentle girl who is looking for her forever home! Though it may take her a minute to warm up to you, once she does, she is very affectionate and snuggly. Lucy loves to play with toys and may do well with another dog in the home after appropriate introductions. She will be most successful in an adult only home. Does Lucy sound like the right match for your family? Come on in and meet her!

animal id # 580427

Hi my name is Zeus - I'm a German Shepherd and I'm looking for my new home! My friends say that I'm a smart guy and I'm definitely looking for some mental stimulation wherever I'm headed. This will help keep me calm and happy as I am a little stressed. I really love people though I am working on how to appropriately show it because I tend to jump up. Because of this, I would probably do best in a home with older children. I'm around 2 years old and weigh 60lbs.

"PETEY" adorable Pitmix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here my Mcas weblink
animal id # 581019

Hello, my name is Petey! I am a happy guy who enjoys a lot of attention from humans! The way I see it is the more pets the better! I am hoping to find an active family who can continue the training that my previous family has started. I will do best in a home with children over 12 yrs old. I know some tricks however I can sometimes get insecure when I see dogs from a distance and bark at them. The good news is that I have lived with a female dog and we got along pretty well. Are you considering me? Please stop by to say hello! I am around 2 1/2 years old and weigh 45 pounds
 
 
 

 
 

"MAGNOLIA" beautiful Basset hound mix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 581343

My name is Magnolia. A beautiful southern belle with all the great qualities of a Basset Hound! My new family should be calm and patient with me, as I can be a bit more reserved at first before opening up my wonderfully playful personality! I may do well with calm, respectful kids who will give me the time to warm up to them. I have some skin issues at the moment that should get better with regular baths, good food, and some quality flea control. Please come down to the shelter to meet me! I am 3 years old and weigh 46 pounds.
 
 
 
 
 

"WAYLON" Basset hound mix



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 580684

Howdy! My name is Waylon. As you can see, I have some of that ol' Basset Hound in me. As with an hound, I love to follow my nose and sniff out all that life has to offer. So my new family should give me secure containment or leash walk me for exercise. I love to romp around and enjoying playing chase with my human friends. I have shown pro-social behaviors when seeing dogs here in the shelter, but any intros with four-legged friends should be done slowly. My new family should know that I am currently on medication to help fix my itchy skin and eyes, but with regular check ups by the vet and consistent flea meds and baths, I should be good as new. I would do best in a home with kids over 10 as I have shown minor food guarding. Please come and see me at the shelter! I am 4 years old and weigh 46 pounds.




 

"LONGFELLOW" a happy adoption update!

Happy adoption update!
Sept 21, 2016
 
We adopted this good ol' Goofy Boy almost 5 years ago and he has been an awesome addition to our family. Baxter 'Longfellow' loves to eat...ANYTHING! He is particularly fond of apples and tomatoes and sits under our apple tree constantly waiting for apples to fall. When not doing that he is trying to snatch cherry tomatoes through the now fenced plants. He loves to cuddle with my wife and spends lots of evening time next to her on the couch (on his blanket).
Thank you Multnomah County Animal Control for bringing Baxter into our life. We estimate he is 9 or 10 years old now and we cherish every day with him.
 
ADOPTED!
Dec 2011 
Okay, so i have no idea where the name "Longfellow" comes from..... but the name certainly suits this spectacular dog!
He is substantially smart, cute to boot, and .... already has a great name!!!
 

Longfellow walks great on the leash, and seems just fine with other dogs.  He would love to live with a female canine companion and a home with children over 8 years old.
 
Are you "Longfellow's" answer to a second chance at life? Meet the polite and charming Longfellow at Multnomah County Animal Shelter today!!

here's my MCAS weblink 
animal # 573361

HI! My name is Monica Muggles and despite arriving at the shelter in rough shape, I am a happy and loving gal! I am about 13 years old and weigh about 11 pounds. When I'm not snoozing at my foster home, my tail is always wagging! Like a lot of dogs my age, I have a few medical issues but if you can see past them, I am incredibly adorable and so worth it! If you can provide regular veterinary care and are ready for MAJOR CUDDLE TIME, please contact my foster mom at parkrosepup@gmail.com or call the Foster Coordinator at 503-988-6247 so you can meet me!

"MR T." update - Boxer/pitbull mix with the silly underbite


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Update - Mr T is now in a MCAS Foster home

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 579387

Hi! My name is Mr. T. And I will definitely pity the fool who misses out on adopting me! I am a Boxer/Pit mix who is 10 years old and weighs 48 pounds. Even though I am a bit older, I still have tons of life and energy left, and could really benefit from lots of time to play fetch or go on long walks and hikes. I can be a bit shy with people at first, but once I get settled and feel safe, I am a really big goofball. Sometimes I even think I am a lap dog and will try to sit on your lap-so fair warning! Due to recent history we have required that Mr. T go to a home with kids over 10. I am currently in foster care and NOT at the shelter. If you are interested, please contact Jennifer at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us.
