"GRETA" a delightful little star! Chihuahua mix



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal # 575293

Greta Garbo has nothing on me! My name is Greta too and the shelter thinks I am a delightful little star. I'm about 5 years old and weigh 10lbs. I'm shy when I am in the spotlight but once I get to know you, I am an active, curious little firecracker who would like to be the center of attention. My shelter friends recommend that any time spent outside, should be supervised as in my previous home I was digging holes to explore the rest of the world! Please ask about me!
 

 
 
 

"ZAK" smart Active (movie star?) med size- cattle type (terrier type?) mix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink
animal id # 577344

Hi there! My name is Zak. I am a fun and active dude who is looking for a new family to help me grow. I would need a new home which is able to give me ample time to get out my energy in a positive way. Is running your thing? Because I bet I would LOVE IT!!!! I have shown pro-social, rambunctious behaviors with same-sized dogs and would benefit from slow and steady introductions with any new buddies I may have in my life. I can be shy when meeting new people, but with patience and lots of treats I warm up quickly. Sometimes I can be a bit sensitive to handling, and with that it may be best to have kids 12 and older in my new home. I am full of potential, and can’t wait to fulfill that with my new crew! I am 2 years old and weigh 30 pounds.

"MALCOLM" I LOVE other dogs - gorgeous young Hound boy

I might really like a doggie companion in my new home? 
Available for Adoption with Indigo Rescue!

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

Meet Malcolm!

Malcolm is a handsome young adult Treeing Walker Coonhound, probably about 2 years old. He is a gentle, sweet boy who is easily spooked in new situations and shy with new people he meets, but he loves other dogs. Malcolm will chase cats if they run, but only because it's in his blood - we are not sure whether he means to harm them.

Malcolm was not trained in his prior home. He is learning in his foster home and doing very well. He knows sit, lay down, shake, and is learning fetch. He will still pull on a leash, but does fine on a front clipping harness or gentle leader. He will learn quickly with someone who is committed to training. True to his breed,

Malcolm does bay, and baying is LOUD, so he would not be a good dog to live in an apartment or home that is close to the neighbors. He is also able to climb fences so he needs to live in a home with a securely fenced, with 6' wooden fence, yard. Because he is timid, he should not go to a home with toddlers or small children.

Adoption Process: We are not first come first served. Indigo Rescue focuses on finding good matches between dogs and families to ensure life long adoptions. We deliver all dogs to their new homes. All of our dogs are in foster homes

"ARTHUR" a delightful med sz herding dog type!


Available for Adoption with  Indigo Rescue!
In an Indigo Rescue Foster home
What a great dog!

Arthur is very intelligent, athletic, friendly and loyal! He's a nice medium size Herding type? mix (with some pretty purple tongue Chow Chow somewhere in the blend!) yup American Mutt!  Like many really smart dogs, Arthur is a bit of a "Nervous Nelly"  but he excels in sports (be careful please) and  he likes to meet new people and other dogs  when he is slowly introduced (just needs someone ready to give him the space he needs if he barks and shows he isn't comfortable)  Mostly he just wants to be adopted  into a home that will appreciate him

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

Meet Arthur!Arthur is a sweet and adorable American Shelter Mutt - which is another way of saying we don't know exactly what breed mix he is! We think he is about four to five years old. He has a soft coat, something like an Australian Shepherd and he's a great smallish medium sized. Arthur loves adults, and kids over 12 years old. He does not like small children at all! He gets along fine with small dogs and he can get along with bigger dogs once he knows them, but when he meets them on leash he is pretty defensive. He does really well at the dog park, as long as dogs don't jump on him. Arthur is a great walking/hiking companion. He has some separation anxiety so would do best in a home where the people aren't gone all day to work. He really would do best with another, smaller dog in the home as company. He doesn't currently live with a cat but we think he might be fine with cats who don't run.






Arthur loves to high jump to catch the ball:)
 It's important to be careful and not do it too much,  so he doesn't get injured

animal id # 577808

Hi there! My name is Alabama and I'm looking for a new home. I am a smart, active, and playful little lady that loves giving kisses and playing with the tennis ball. My new family should be prepared to give me all the exercise I can handle with lots of playtime. I already know how to sit, but reward based classes are always recommended for youngsters like me who are still discovering who they are. If you think we could make a great match, come on down and meet me today! I am around a year old and weigh 47 pounds.

Hey looking for a cute little lap dog. Well look no further. My name is Chiquita. I'm not sure about shelter life but when I'm in a quiet space then I show off my cute side. I'm quite an endearing little snuggle bunny looking for a quiet home that will give me some space and time to adjust. Then I turn into an enchanting prancing Chihuahua. I'm about 4 years old and weigh slightly under 9 lbs.

animal id # 577594

My name is Cherry! I am sweet and vibrant, even though it may not look that way at first. I can be quite shy, but if you take your time and gain my trust, I can be a loving little lady who is open to being your new best friend. My friends here at the shelter are recommending that I only go to a home with kids over 10 years old. I have done well with respectful, same sized dogs here at the shelter, so that is a big plus! I hope to see you down here at the shelter so you can take me home. I am 4 years old and weigh 9 pounds.

I did GREAT with everyone - humans and dogs too!

"LOKI" BIG Bulldoggie type has a positive outlook on life

I'm really strong, and a Love too. I don't do well in a shelter kennel - because I don't want to go back in after a walk....so it's hard for staff and volunteers....so... I don't get out of the kennel that much right now.
I get it (...as any sensible person would) however?  I will do great in any home looking for a big guy like me!

HI! My name is Loki. I am huge lovebug who is in need of some help. I came into the shelter looking a bit worse for wear. But that has not stopped me from having a wonderfully bright and friendly outlook on life! I love meeting new people, going for long jaunts, and playing with tennis balls. Hopefully, with some time and assistance, I will get back to looking the handsome man I am. Can't wait to meet you! I am 3 years old and weigh 84 pounds.



 

"BIG MIKE" handsome Tuxedo Pitbull

 
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services! 
 
here's my MCAS weblink 
animal # 575761

Hello, my name is Big Mike! Are you looking for a big guy with a goofy personality? I have enjoyed playing tug, going for walks, and already know how to sit. I've been a little uncomfortable with intimate handling so my shelter friends are asking that my new family use positive training methods to help me feel better and if there are any new children in my home that they be 6 years or older. Another same size female dog companion could be fun but those small animals are too tempting to chase so no cats either. Ask about me! I am around 3 years old and weigh 57 pounds

"MERLIN" well adjusted senior Min Pin - plus JEWELRY SALE - Indigo Rescue fundraiser

JEWELRY SALE!
 
=========================================================================

AVAILABLE for Adoption with Indigo Rescue!

MERLIN is a very good natured little Min Pin mix!
 As Merlin ages, he has developed limited vision and hearing, but still has a wonderful temperament. He would  love to finally get adopted into his own real home
If you are interested in meeting Merlin, please fill out the adoption questions on his Indigo Rescue Petfinder.com link. 

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

Meet Merlin!

Merlin is an adult Min Pin with a docked tail. He is estimated to be about eight years old. Merlin is the nicest, easiest dog. He's what we call a good "starter dog" because he has no issues so a family with limited experience could do really well with someone like Merlin. Merlin was not well taken care of by his prior owner. He was sorely in need of a dental cleaning which we did for him. His coat was not great either, and he was very, very thin. Now, with good food and lots of love and exercise, Merlin is looking and feeling like a million bucks! He's such a great little guy!
