"PHOEBE" nice middle aged Cattle Dog



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's  my Mcas weblink
Hi my name is Phoebe and I am around 6 years old and weigh in at 42 lbs.
I am not the most outgoing girl here but I sure am the most loyal!
Are you familiar with Australian Cattledogs or Blue Heelers? We are a special breed so doing a bit of research is a great idea. Due to our unique characteristics we don't always fit into the average urban home.
Thanks for asking about me.

"GRACIE" TALL!! (maybe a Malamute mix?) Lab mix

 
Available for Adoption at Multnomah Co Animal Services!

Here's my MCAS weblink

I am one of those once in a lifetime dogs. The kind that steps into your home and heart and never leaves. I am looking for a home that will keep me til the end of my time on earth. I am well behaved, friendly with all I have met, calm, and extremely loving to people. I am looking for a home as the only dog. I have great house skills. I am in the best years of my life and hoping to find a home who will support me with vet care, daily walks, and lots of good times. I am just under 10 years of age and I weigh a substantial 97 lbs.

 


 

"LIL' LADY" the best little Portland (designer dog) Mutt!!


Available at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink (10/29 Lil' Lady has a possible adopter - keep checking the website)

Hello, my name is Lil' Lady! I am sad to report that this isn't my first time being without a family. My story is that a family found me wondering the streets three years ago, took me to the shelter to see if someone was missing me then decided to adopt me. I have been living with them but when left outside unattended I escape and return to my original family. Neither of them are able to keep me now so I'm hoping that this is where my luck changes. I have lived with children but would prefer an adult family and other dogs that I have adored. Do you have room in your life for a girl like me? I am around 4 years old and weigh 18.3 pounds

 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 

"BRITTA" such a uniquely beautiful face! (brindle pitmix)



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Britta is my shelter name so pleased to meet you. I am an enthusiastic young lady around years old and weighing in at 55 lbs looking to find my forever home real quick. This place really tries but it just can't be the same as a safe warm and loving home that I deserve. I need some more experience with dog so a steady male would be the best to show me the ways of dog etiquette. So many rules that change with each dog, I have a lot to learn. Won't you help me become the queen I am destined to be? I am around 2 years old and weigh 54 pounds
 
 
 
 
 

"CHARLA" petite young Pitmix



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hi the shelter named me Charla, so pleased to meet you. I am a young lady looking for a smart family to help teach me the ways of a grown up dog. At only years old I don't have a lot of experience in life. New things can be scary and I definitely need more exposure to other dogs. The shelter highly recommends reward based classes to help with this goal. A steady family dog will also help me grow more confident. I weigh in at 40 lbs and am around a year old
 



"RUDY" little guy loves big gentle dog buddies


Available for adoption  Multnomah County Animal Services
in an MCAS foster home 

here's my MCAS weblink
 
My name is Rudy and I am currently in foster care. If you are interested in me, please contact our Foster Coordinator at alix.womack@multco.us to set up a time to meet me! I am house-trained and leash trained and crate trained and good with other dogs and cats. I'm not you're average little dog, I consider myself a dogs' dog. I'm a very quiet, polite and an easy keeper.
 
 
 I am uber confident with all types of animals. People still make me nervous and I am slow to warm up, but am getting better every day- gaining trust and bonding. I adore my pitbull foster sister and brother and I share my food and couch with the cats. I do well on leash and really love my walks. I even do hikes like a pro. I am potty trained and ride well in the car. I would do well in a home with gentle kids over the age of 6. Being adopted to a home with confident dogs will help me gain confidence and come out of my shell faster. Ask about me today!
 
thanks Molly, for my super cute foster home pics!

"CAROLINA - GORGEOUS Terrier/chi mix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my MCAS weblink

Hi there, my name is Carolina, but I am no southern belle! I am a spitfire of a little gal looking for a home with children over the age of 12, preferably another dog who can handle my energy. I LOVE other dogs and would prefer to go to a home with other dogs who will play with me. I like to chase cats, so should go to a home without cats. When I get excited and play, I can be a bit mouthy. I like to chase the cat, but my foster mom is working on training me to stop before I catch it! When I came to the shelter I had mange and a bad skin infection, and the MCAS and Foster Home and Medical care fixed me and I am 100% healed now! The shelter will help with follow up on skin care as part of my adoption. I need to go to a home with a fully fenced yard, otherwise I might wander off. If you are interested in me, please contact the Foster Coordinator at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet me.
 
 
 



"HANK" gentle shelter dog - a mature Rottweiler


 We love you Hank!!! Now in Foster -waiting for someone wonderful to adopt him!

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

Hey there folks, my name is Hank. I am currently in foster care. If you are interested in me, please contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet me! I am a handsome lug of a guy looking for a new home. I am sweet and affectionate, already know how to sit for a treat and enjoy having my ears rubbed. I would like a patient home that will allow me to settle in and get used to the new stuff that comes with a new home. He has hip dysplasia, so short frequent walks are better for him than one very long walk. The shelter is advising that I go to a home with children over the age of 8. Please ask to meet me today! I am about 7 years old and I weigh 80 lbs.


 

 
 
 

 

 

"SAKURA" (Maya) happy Lab mix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink  (10/28 Sakura has an adopter)

Hello, my name is Maya! I arrived at the shelter as a stray dog so my friends can't tell you what my past experience has been like but they can say I have been social with strangers, very energetic, sweet and already know a couple of tricks. Are you looking for a new companion to go hiking or camping with? Please come down and meet me. I am around 3 years old and weigh 60 pounds


"MARIAH" quiet teenager Chi mix

ADOPTED!

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hello my name is Mariah, I am the shy girl in this sister act. Once I feel comfortable around my family I am a love bug but frankly I lean on my sister Peanut so we would like to go home together but understand if that can't happen. The shelter wants you to know I lived with a cat but I did occasionally chase it. If you have cats the shelter suggests a very slow introduction to the household cat. I have not been exposed to the younger set in my life so the shelter is recommending only families with older, 10 years plus respectful children ask about us. I am around 9 months old and weigh in at 9.4 lbs. My sister got adopted and went home without me. Please come and take me home!



"PENNY" teenage Maltese - full of personality

here's my Mcas weblink (10/28 Penny has an adopter)

Hello, hello, HELLO! My name is Penny and I'm so glad to meet you. I am enthusiastic, full of personality and adorable! I'm looking for an active family who can appreciate my fun energetic personality! Don't forget that my coat will require regular grooming to help keep healthy and mat free. Please come down to introduce yourself. I am around 10 months old and weigh 9.4 pounds

"HAMMISH" handsome discriminating, and cool guy! a cattle dog/ lab/pitbull/ setter mix?


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's  my Mcas weblink

Well hello world, the shelter named me Hamish for my handsome and manly good looks.
I am going to be frank with you I am not so sure of strangers. I need time to really figure out if you can be trusted before I let down my guard. Because of this the shelter is asking for families with respectful children at least 10 years old to ask about me.
The shelter is also a bit mystified as to my breed mix… So they are using the catch name American Shelter Dog. Old school would be to call me Heinz 57 or a mutt. Isn't ASD more sophisticated?
I am around 2 years old and weigh in at 63 lbs.

"PEGGY" - sweet dog- looking for a Poodle loving friend

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's  my Mcas weblink

Peggy is a sweet and shy little gal looking for a loving home with the means to keep her coat well groomed and help her get her teeth cleaned! She can be a bit shy at first, but once she trusts you, well she is a doll! Please ask to meet her today! She is about 10 years old and she weighs 14lbs.


 
 

"GREYSON" like many dogs - calm/excited - sweet guy



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's  my Mcas weblink

Hello the shelter named me Greyson, so pleased to meet you. I am the not the most bubbly guy here, I really need to get to know you and feel that trust. Once I am in that safe space we can cuddle and bond some more.
I am an eager walker so a harness and maybe some refresher classes on leash walking would be a good idea. The shelter staff wants to make that easier on the pocket book by offering a half price adoption if you provide proof of pre paid classes before you pick me up. Oh I am so looking forward to settling into my new home, at around 4 years old and weighing in at 54 lbs I still have many years of love and gratitude to give.
Please ask about me today.

"BUHDA" youthful, affectionate Doxie


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
Here's my MCAS weblink!
 
Budha is currently in foster care. If you are interested in meeting him, please contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at 971-201-1513 or alix.womack@multco.us. Budha is a youthful, affectionate guy who gets along well with other dogs, big and small. He would like to be adopted out into a home with another dog to spend time with. He is just over 1 year of age and weighs 13lbs. He has been working on crate training in his foster home and is doing well. He gets nervous when new people or dogs enter his home, but with slow introductions he warms up quickly. We are recommending he goes to a home with kids 12 and older since he can be a mouthy player. Call to set up a time to meet Budha today!
