"ROSALYNN" charming little hound dog

 
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services

here's my MCAS weblink
animal id # 564398

Hello, my name is Rosalynn. I arrived at the shelter as a insecure stray dog in need of some groceries! My shelter friends have started me on the road to recovery and are hoping that a patient gentle new family can pick up where they left off. Have you ever had a hound before? Then you must know that we like to smell, smell, smell! My new family should use reward based training methods to help build my confidence with strangers, take me for lots of walks to explore the world and give me lots of love. Are you prepared for that? Please come down and meet me. I am around 3 years old and weigh 37 pounds. I am spayed.

"MIRANDA" entertaining, cute Pitbull pup

 
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink  
id # 565552


Hello, my name is Miranda! I am a cute young and beautiful lady that is looking for a new family. I arrived at the shelter with a patchy hair coat that my shelter friends have already started me on the path to recovery. With a good quality diet and consistent flea control my hair should grow back nicely. Enthusiastic, entertaining, confident and social are a few words to describe my personality. My adopter should be prepared to use positive training techniques for continued socialization, and guidance to help me become a well behaved companion. I will also need to slow introductions to other dogs to help build my confidence and skills with other dogs. The shelter is asking that any new children in my home be over the age of 8 and that my adopters sign us up for training classes to start our new life together. My adoption fee will be reduced if you provide a receipt and registration to a training class before taking me home. Interested in me? Please come down to the shelter and say hello. I am around 4 months old and weigh 23 pounds

 
 

 
 

"MUFFY" a much loved elderly Rat Terrier



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 
id # 565356

I am looking for a retirement home. You know, the kind of place where things move at a slower pace and I can mosey through my day. I will appreciate and enjoy gentle daily outings or walks but will need a securely fenced yard or supervised outside times only. I have lived previously with other mature dogs and cats but would not like a home with a young rowdy dog or young children. I am a sweet older lady looking for a soft place to land. Please ask about me. I am about 14 years of age.

Hey there, I'm not Ringo Starr but I am a Ringo and could be a shining star in your home. I am a 10 year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix and I weigh about 70lbs. Don't let my age and breed mix scare you off. I am friendly, active and like playing with tennis balls, going for walks and will catch treats. I do need to be in an adult only home because I do not want to rough house with kids. If you are looking for a calm older dog with plenty of get up and go, please check me out.

I am affectionate and sweet, and would love to wile away the hours on your lap or by your feet.

Hi the names Tate, at least that’s what the shelter named me. I am a gentle gent looking to start my new life with you. At 10 years old and weighing in at 45 lbs I am the perfect mellow guy. Leisurely walks and big, cozy beds are what I'm looking for. The shelter does not know much about me but they did notice my keen interest in the smaller creatures. I might be a little too interested, if you know what I mean. Still interested? Please ask about me today

"JAMES" big hearted, medium sized young Cattle Dog/Pit mix

 
Available for adoption (in a foster home) with

here's my Mcas weblink 
id # 564117

James is a smart, big-hearted young dog, who aims to please. He’s a people-oriented dog and will make you a great companion. He is currently in foster care. If you are interested in him, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet him :) James is a healthy 1½-2 year old, with great big eyes and big ears to match. He will play with you and then curl up beside you when you’re ready for a snooze. He came into the shelter a frightened dog - the world around him was very scary for James. He has been in a foster setting since mid-December where he's been doing well and has been working with a trainer. He knows all his basic commands, is crate trained, house trained and loves playing with toys, especially fetch. He would like a home without children or other animals. He is working on leash training and can be reactive to other dogs, but is making progress every day. He is worried about new people, but once he knows you, he loves you. Ask about James today!

"RUSTY" cool Cattle Dog/ cute Underbite mix

my favorite model! wish Rusty could find a suitable devoted home!

Available for Adoption with Oregon Humane Society!
Daphne - here's my OHS weblink
my animal id # is  167371

Did you stop in your tracks as you saw Rusty? He is a handsome fella isn’t he? He is more than just good looks however; he is full of life and ready to take on the world. Rusty can be overexcited when it comes to meeting new people or when he is in new places so he will need someone who is willing to work on basic manners and continuing socialization. Sometimes excitement just gets the better of him and his zest for life cannot be contained. He will do best in a home with Heeler experience. We recommend an adult only home, or one with older respectful children. Rusty will need a cat free home and may be best as the only dog. Rusty can be worried about meeting new people and children. If you lead an active life and can keep this man busy then maybe he could be the companion for you. A training consult is included prior to adoption.

"CONRAD" unique green eyes!


Conrad has some cosmetic hair loss, and some of it may be due to his coloration... Conrad will definitely benefit  from a daily supplement of Omega 3 Fatty Acids  (Fish oil supplements) and a high quality, limited ingredient diet - which is good for any dog!

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 565129

Hello, my name is Conrad! As you can see my skin isn't quite as healthy as I want it to be! Do you have allergies too? Well then you know that sometimes its not easy to find out exactly what we are allergic to. My shelter friends have started me on the road to recovery and they are hoping someone will fall in love with my charming personality and join me on the journey to the picture of perfect health! I already know some tricks, and enjoy some scratches from someone I trust. Are you interested in a companion like me? Please come down and meet me! I am around 3 years old and weigh 60 pounds
 


 

"SIMON" a Shy, snaggle toothed, Turtle Terrier mix



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 
id # 565483

Hey there, my name is Simon. I'm some sort of terrier mix. I am about 2 years old and weigh 24lbs. I'm like a turtle and if I had a shell I'd be hiding it because I don't care for the noise and commotion at the shelter, but really I'm a pretty good guy. Because I'm not really showing my true personality, the shelter strongly recommends that if there are kids in my new home that they are 12 & up and will respect my need for some time to adjust.

" BEACH BOY" I want to have fun!


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 
id # 565175

Hey surfers, Beach Boy here. You are fer sure gonna want to meet me outside of my kennel! I am super stoked to report there is much beach chatter that I am a “volunteer favorite” around here. I’m a 5-year-old neutered (duuude) pittie mix. I can be anxious in new situations, so I am looking to hook up with calmer types who are  fans of some most excellent positive reinforcement training, as well as daily exercise. I realize we won’t be hangin’ ten on the daily, but regular long walks around the neighborhood would be totally rad. And if we made it to the coast occasionally, sweet! What do you say? Want to spend some quality time with this beach bum? Surfs up; life is short; let’s totally catch some waves together.

Here's my video link!
