"DWAYNE" perfection in black

ADOPTED!
10/16/11


Yes, that's right!  Dwayne is a gem!  To quote our MCAS's amazing trainer Cindy:  "Shelter pick of the day....GREAT with dogs, GREAT with people!"



At just 2 years old and a cuddly 64lbs, Dwayne is hands down a remarkable and loving fella.  He will make an excellent indoor companion in any loving, forever home! 

Watch his music video here:





Because of silly superstitions, and Hollywood depictions of bad guys wearing black, black dogs in shelters are often overlooked, and are generally the last to be adopted.  This is known as "Black Dog Bias," you can read more here.  So why not make a statement and adopt sweet Dwayne, or another black dog from the shelter!  Anyone who adopts a black dog or cat from a shelter is OK in our book!


Dwayne is at Multnomah County Animal Shelter.  See his online profile here:
