"BUDDY" UPDATE Long legged young German Shepherd mix

Buddy is a smart boy and will bond strongly with his new people.

My name is Buddy and I have never met an activity I did not like! If you love exercise and keeping active, then we will be fast friends. I will go for a run in the morning, a hike in the afternoon, play fetch in the evening, and unwind with some play at home before bed - and I would love nothing more than to have someone who can keep up with me. It is important that I have an outlet for my boundless energy, so let us get together and explore the outdoors! If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years, due to some mild resource guarding. I am also uncomfortable around dogs and would do best in a home as the only dog.  1 yr 8 mths, 79lbs





"WILLIE" a nice surprise

Willie is a softhearted sweetheart and seeing how shy he is in his kennel (he often hides in the back), I wasn't expecting him to be so affectionate and willing to engage when outside on a walk.  Hope he gets a great retirement home.  Please ask to meet him outside of his kennel!

Hi, my name is Willie! I am a 10 year old American Shelter Dog mix. I am a shy guy looking for a quiet home to spend my glory years in! I came into the shelter with my pal Missy, she got adopted and now it is my chance! Once I warm up to you, I love booty rubs, I love to play, and will nuzzle into your legs for pets. I have successfully met other dogs, but any in the home should come and meet me first to make sure we get along. I will also need to go to a home with kids 15 years and older because I am so fearful at times. I have come a long way and the staff and volunteers have helped me overcome most of my fears, but I am looking for a patient home to help me blossom! Do you think you could provide that for me? Ask to meet me today!  10 yrs 5 mths, 59lbs

Hi there! My name is Honey, and I am sure sweet like it! I am a 12 year old Chihuahua mix that is looking for a nice, calm home to retire in. I am such a sweet girl, and love being pet and cuddled. My tail is always moving, meaning I'm always happy! I need to go to a home with kids 12 and older, and I would do best in a more quiet home that I can relax and live out my golden years in! Do you think you can provide me with my forever home? Ask to meet me today!
12yrs 5 mths, 10 lbs 

Honey came in as a stray, owners didn't want her back. Kinda sad, but hey, "things are looking up Honey, you'll do better with a new home!"  She's already looking much better than when she came into the shelter.

My name is Haley and I am the dog who is always prepared for a marathon - as long as it is a movie marathon. There is nothing I love more than a cozy, warm bed and some good company. We can discuss our favorite foods while you give me pets and attention. I promise to provide you with lots of laid-back love and friendship if you save me a spot on the couch - or at least on the floor next to you! I can be fearful, so if you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years. I will also need to be the only pet in the home, as I want to be spoiled beyond belief without distractions. Please come and meet me today! age n/a, 63 lbs








"ROMEO" adoption update (8 years later!)

Sept 2018 Happy Adoption Update Romeo!

"Both my husband and I are Claymore's "Romeo" humans! We are the ones that adopted him 
(in Dec 2010) into his forever home. He is such a lover boy. If he could be in between one's subcutaneous fat layer and organs he would jump right in! I clearly remember the day when I stumbled upon one of the above pictures on Multnomah County Animal Shelter (MCAS) website. I immediately printed off and took it home to show my husband. Less than 2 weeks later we adopted him and the rest is history! He loves daily walks, chuck it, cuddling; being spooned in particular, taste testing what we cook in the kitchen, snuggling up with a pillow and blanket, Nyla bones, kongs, and laying in the sun; wherever we may be in the home or out and about. For 7.5 years he shared us with his older MCAS sibling Lily Bean. Two weeks ago she went to the Rainbow Bridge after a short battle with metastatic mast cell cancer. 
What a niche you have created in your work with photographing shelter dogs. We are forever grateful for your heart, skill, and passion."

All our best!
Angela

PhotoBlog note - Romeo's original post and photos  in 2010, and also his MCAS website Profile pic were taken by Patrick S,  photographer and a MCAS Volunteer until moving from the local area. 
Patrick also created the Shelter Dogs of Portland Photoblog.
Thanks Patrick!  Laura

I will bring endless fun and keep you entertained with my goofy antics. If you can keep up with me then I promise that we will have a life full of enjoyment with lots of great stories!

Hey there! My name is Bernadette, a 7 year old Labrador mix lady. I am a little wary of new people, so I ask that you give me a little time to warm up, but once I do I am playful, and love going on walks. Am I going to be a cuddle bug with my new family? No, but I promise we can do other things, like play ball, or go on hikes! I do like the occasional chin scratch, or butt rub, but I am a very particular lady that knows what I like! I also have shown some resource guarding in the shelter an adoption counselor can go more into detail about what that means and how to handle it within the home! If there are and children in the home, they should be 12 years and older and should come meet me before going home with me! Do you think you could give me my forever home? I am in a quieter area of the kennels - please ask a staff member to meet me today!

"CHUBBS" delightful Bassett Hound mix



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Chubbs, male Basset Hound mix
here's my Mcas weblink 
163146
My name is Chubbs. As you can see there is probably nothing I love more than a cozy, warm bed and some good company. We can discuss our favorite foods, but just know that I take my responsibility to eat very seriously and don't like to be bothered when I'm eating. I am up for some regular walks and I like a good game of fetch. I even know to spit out a tennis ball in my mouth so I am ready for the second one to be thrown. Any kids in my new home should be at least 12 years old because I want to dine alone. I am around 8 years old and weigh about 64 lbs.

Nova here! I am the dog who is always prepared for a marathon - as long as it is a tennis ball marathon. There is nothing I love more than running around with a ball in my mouth being goofy. I am looking for a home that will give me some time and space to adjust, then I will provide tons of entertainment playing ball. You don't even have to throw it, If there are kids in my new home they should be at least 12 years old. I am 4 years old and weigh about65lbs.


 



"DALTON" Dalmation



Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Dalton, male Dalmation, 45 lbs, 2 yrs old
here's my  Mcas weblink (adoption pending 9/20)
163300
I'm Dalton, an energetic Dalmation fella searching for a new home. Dogs like me love to get out and play and be as athletic as possible! I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see and sometimes I use my mouth inappropriately. My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup and practice my manners. I already know how to "sit" and "shake" but I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn more together. I can be a little focused on my food so any children in my new home need to be 8 years or older and able to handle how physical I can be. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am!
