Finn   animal # 582926
Mcas weblink 
Hi my name is Finn, I am approx 2 years old and weigh about 76lbs. I am a big hyper guy that will need lots of exercise. I also want all your attention and time so I would not do well in a home with other animals. I should be the only pet in the household. I love my tennis ball and bone they make me so happy when I get to play with them. I promise I will be a big furry goof ball. I am also looking for a yard to exert my energy and apartment life has already been too much for me. Please come and meet me today!

Mcas weblink 

Hi there! My name is Danny Boy and I'm looking for a new home. I am a sensitive guy that is very sweet and loving once I get to know you. I enjoy going for walks and being with my people. Treats are the bees knees and I will offer you a nice sit to receive them. I can't wait to meet my new family! Please come and meet me today! I am about years old and weigh 18 pounds

Poppy  animal # 583277
Mcas weblink 

My name is Poppy and I'm a sensitive lady that's looking for a quiet, loving home. I love my people, but can be a little shy at first. Once I warm up, I enjoy sitting in your lap and getting a good cuddle session in. I prefer to be held, but my new family should be sure to make me walk on leash to keep me healthy. I love my food and that is the way to my heart. Please come down and meet me today! I can't wait to snuggle with you. I am years old and weigh 7 pounds.

Fancy animal # 583284 (smart and funny med size dog)
Mcas weblink 

Hi there! My name is Fancy and I'm looking for an active family that can give me plenty of exercise. I am a very athletic lady that could potentially be a great agility partner. I love running and jumping! I also know how to calm down nicely as well. Treats are my main motivation, but I also enjoy playing with toys and will bring them back to you. If you're looking for fun, sweet girl, please come and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 25 pounds.

 Edith animal # 583261 
Mcas weblink

Pleasure to meet you, I'm Edith! I'm a sweet little shih tzu mix looking for a new home. I'm very affectionate and love to get pets and attention from my people. Don't let my little size fool you though, I'll still hop around with you and play! I'm a regular lovebug and my goofy ears and sweet smile make me a real charmer. My new home should know that I will need consistent grooming throughout my life to keep my skin and coat healthy - not to mention keep me looking sharp! I'm about 5 years old and weigh 12 lbs.

Bertha  animal # 583183
Mcas weblink

Hello there! My name is Berta and I'm on the hunt for a new family! I am a very sweet, playful girl that loves to be with my people. The shelter has been a little stressful for me and I can't wait to curl up next to the fireplace with you. As you can see, I am in need of a diet and exercise plan to keep me healthy. I can't lie.. I really like my food. I have also developed a flea allergy and it will be important that my new family give me quality, monthly flea protection, so I don't have breakouts and get itchy. If you are looking for a great companion, please come and meet me today! I am about 5 years old and weigh 38 pounds.

Holly  animal # 583255  ( wiggly pup)
Mcas weblink

Holly here! I'm a sweet and goofy lady looking for my new home. I'm wiggly and affectionate but I have lots of energy. I'd love to go to an active home where I can get all the physical stimulation I need. I'm not super comfortable with too much handling though so I would do best in a home with older kids (12+) who will respect my boundaries. With positive, reward-based training I will hopefully overcome these issues and bond quickly with my new people! Come and say hi. I'm about 1 year old and weigh (about 20 pounds overweight!) 82 lbs.

"BETTY" funny mature Pug

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
animal # 583135
Mcas weblink 

Hi I'm Betty! I'm an older pug looking for a nice home to retire in. I'm not going to be running any marathons but I like to take walks and would enjoy cruising your neighborhood with you. I absolutely love getting attention and nothing feels better than a nice back rub or backside scratch! I've got some teeth issues so I would need soft food but I'd love to eat a nice meal and then cozy up with you while you watch tv or read a good book! Think that you could be a good fit for me to spend my golden years in? Come say hi! The shelter is recommending kids 8 & up because I'm not so much into playing and running around. I'm about 10 years old and weigh 12lbs

"VERONICA" excitable friendly pug

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
animal # 583134
Mcas weblink

Veronica here! I'm a playful pug looking for some new digs! I've got lots of personality and I'm so excited to get out there and see the world. I love walks and light play with toys for exercise but really I'd love to just get lots and lots of attention and pets from you. Think we could be a match? I'm about 2 years old and weigh 14 lbs.


"MAGGIE" amazing fetching Blue/brown eyed heeler/pitmix

Available for Adoption with Oregon Humane Society!
animal # 189477
Ohs weblink

Maggie is a very worldly dog, as she has traveled all over the United States during her life, along with going to both Brazil and Israel. She has seen the sights and is now looking for somewhere to hang her hat permanently as she begins the next chapter of her life. Don’t let her age fool you – she is a playful dog that will thrive in an active home. She loves to fetch! She also loves to cuddle up and watch TV on the couch with her people. She likes to talk, so she might not be the best match for an apartment or condominium. Maggie is deaf, but you wouldn’t know it, so don’t let that worry you one bit. She is generally gentle and very social, but may do best in an adult-only home or one with older, dog-savvy children. Maggie is nervous with other dogs and prefers to avoid them altogether, so she should be the only dog in the home. Come meet Maggie and see if her becoming your best friend is the adventure you have been waiting for! A training consult is provided to help everyone get off on the right paw.

"CAMILLA" Happy little blind dog

It's amazing that this great dog is still looking for a new home! 

Available for Adoption with  Indigo Rescue!
Camilla is living in a foster home 

please see Camilla's  Indigo Rescue Link - for more information - and also for more info on how to apply if interested

Meet Camilla!Camilla is a sweet, sweet, happy girl who loves to follow you everywhere, and be by your side or in your lap. The only problem she has is that she is blind. This doesn't slow her down, though. She navigates almost exactly like a sighted dog, and might even see shadows out of one eye. All she really needs to do is figure out where everything is, and then she remembers and goes around it. Camilla is estimated by the vet at approximately 5.5 years old. Camilla is not sad about her impairment. She is just happy to be with you all the time! She will be happiest in a home with a securely fenced yard and no stairs (one or two steps is okay once she knows they are there). Walking on a leash is fine, but can be exhausting because she doesn't know where there might be a dip or a curb, or a branch sticking out, etc. Off-leash in a secure backyard is best because once she knows where things are, she can run and kick up her heels a bit. Camilla loves to run and play in the yard when it's a sunny day!
Camilla usually does fine with other dogs, but she is afraid when she meets them on the leash because she has no way of knowing what their intentions are. She can be defensive initially. Once she knows another dog and she is off-leash in the yard with them, she does great, but in the end, she really wants to be the only dog in her home. She would prefer not to share the attention of her person. She is completely fine with cats.
We aren't exactly sure what breed mix Camilla is. Her coat is silky and doesn't shed much, and she weighs 15lbs. Whatever she is, she's super cute!

"LINCOLN" handsome chubby golden retriever/chow mix

Lincoln is great! 
 Lincoln has been waiting a long time for a good home. Lincoln is available for adoption but is staying in a quieter  area, so if you think he might be a good fit, please ask to meet him!
Yes, he's a bit quirky and distrustful  of strangers sometimes...  but no more so (and much less so) than many dogs....AND he is lovable, engaging and quite a softie really. I think he'd be good as an only pet.  Lincoln has been bounced around in his life, and hasn't had the best life... he needs someone he can count on to love and understand him.

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 580375

Hi! My name is Lincoln. A big boy with a lot of love to give! I am in need of some help to get these extra pounds off, but with some very long walks and a proper diet, I am sure to get back into the best shape of my life! I enjoy the company of my owners, and would love to lay down next to you for some wonderful back rubs. I would do best in a home without small animals or cats, but may prefer to be the only animal in the house. Due to some of my handling sensitivities, it is best that I go to a home with kids over 10.   I am 6 years old and weigh 96 pounds.

 Lincoln loves his occasional  massage from ResQ Animal Massage
"This guy. Right here. Lovable fluffball, enjoys massage, LOVES to be loved! He's been waiting a long time for his forever home at Multnomah County Animal Services. Please share or better yet - come and meet him!"

here are some Lincoln photos that I took in Aug 2015 when he was at a different shelter (and then adopted) from there.
someday sweetie, you'll find your "forever home!"

"THEO" cool pitbull

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
animal # 536785
Mcas weblink

Hi there! My name is Theo and I'm looking for a new, loving family! I've had a pretty tough life so far, and am looking for someone to give me another chance. I am a very friendly guy that adores people and enjoys going for daily walks and runs. I also enjoy playing with toys and cuddling on the couch. I can get overexcited easily and will need work on impulse control with my mouth. I was never taught good bite inhibition and sometimes I can get carried away in all the excitement of getting attention. The shelter is highly recommending that we take reward based classes together to get us started on the right paw. Kids in the home need to be over the age of 12 years due to this. I can calm myself pretty nicely and really enjoy getting in a good cuddle session. I have developed a skin condition from fleas and it will be important that I stay on quality, monthly flea control for the rest of my life. If you are looking for a great second chance dog, please come and meet me today! I must also ask that my new home is feline and canine free, as I need all of the attention to myself. I am about 5 years old and weigh a thin 55 pounds.



"JACKSON" handsome tall lean Lab mix - WESTSIDE of town (Bonnie Hays, Wash Co Shelter)

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

here's my shelter link
I need a good indoor home where I am loved, appreciated and have a consistent structure so I feel secure in life and know that I'm home. I'm a sweetheart.
7 yrs old, 51 lbs, no restriction



 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.

"BEN" goofy senior Pitbull

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
animal # 580979
Mcas weblink

My name is Ben. I am 10 years old and I weigh 75 pounds. I have had quite the life, and now I am just looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy my retirement years. I can still be quite goofy and love to be around with my human friends, playing with toys or just a good old fashioned romp around the yard. I have been an outside dog most of my life, and so transitioning to a home will take some time, but I promise to be very appreciative! I have been tolerant of other dogs when meeting them, but do not seem to be much into playing. I am looking for an Adult-only home, as I have had issues with food-guarding and will need proper management with this. Due to this it is best that I be the only pet in the home as well. As you can see with my appearance, I have had some previous trauma but it has not affected me physically, and I can still move around without much issue at all. I hope you take the chance on me-I can be a really sweet and wonderful guy with the right home!!

"TANK" handsome Charcoal Tuxedo Pitbull

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
animal # 564325
Mcas weblink

Hi there! My name is Tank and I am a big doofy guy that is looking for a new home. I have been an outdoor dog for most of my life and am looking for a family that can transition me into the indoor life. I am sensitive to intimate handling, so my new home should have children over the age of 12 years old. I know how to sit and speak already and am eager to learn more. Treats and toys are the way to my heart! My new home must also have a secure yard, as I have had a history of getting out, so keeping me supervised outdoors is a must. I have lived with other dogs, but I am selective in who I become friends with, so a meet and greet is required if you have other canines in the home. Please come and take a chance on giving me a better life. I am about 5 years old and weigh 78 pounds.

"GINGER" UPDATE! Video - pretty little Pitbull mix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink   ( 12/3 adoption pending)
animal id # 579301

Hi there! My name is Ginger and I'm looking for an active, dog-savvy home that understands my sensitive nature. I am a very sweet girl, but can be easily startled of new people, environments, and novel objects. It can take me a bit to feel comfortable, but once I am, I will love you until the end of days. I am looking for an owner that can make me safe and show me that the world isn't such a scary place. Reward based classes would be highly beneficial for me to learn basic skills and self confidence. I can get a little mouthy when I'm overexcited so a home with kids over the age of 12 years is recommended. I have been selective about my canine friends, and would match best with a dog who is more calm and appropriate than rough and rowdy. If you think we could make a great match, come and meet me today. I am about 5 years old and weigh 43 pounds.
