"RIPPLE" active cuddly coffee/brindle Pitbull

ADOPTED!
May 15, 2015

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink
animal id # 577530

Hello! My name is Ripple. I am sweet and active, and I am looking for a home who will keep me in shape through lots of physical activity. Even though I love to stay fit and in shape, I know exactly when to take it easy, and love to cuddle and relax with my humans. In my last home I had a very rough play style with other dogs and younger kids, so it is probably best that I be the only pet and have kids older than 12 years old. I know sit, and could benefit from more training as I am very focused and engaged with my handlers! I hope that I am what you are looking for, so come down to meet me! I am years 2 old and weigh 52 pounds.

animal id # 577358

Hello, I'm Mickey a 4 year old pomeranian mix. I've been kind of stressed and unsure here because I lived in a very quiet home with a senior citizen. Now I'm looking for a new home where I can relax and keep someone company. Because I've never been around kids, the shelter recommends a quiet home and if there are any kids they are respectful and at least 10 years old. I'm just waiting for a lap to jump into so come and ask to meet me

animal id # 577458

My name is Snowy. Pleased to meet you! I am a friendly and excitable older gal who still has a great zest for life! I love to get out and explore, and get excited whenever I see my leash. I could use a home who will attempt to keep me active and help me shed some of this extra weight I've got. I have been very sensitive to handling my paws and my face, so my new owners should be patient with this. Since I have been here at the shelter, I have been very friendly with all people that I have met, big or small, and could even consider living with another four-legged friend! Hope to meet you soon. I am 8 years old and weigh 74 pounds.

Seeking a soulful Shepherd. That's Blaze. She 12 years old but don't be fooled by the number she's still got some get up and go but the beauty of an older dog is that she can relax and be calm too. Blaze is housetrained and will want to be with her new people as she was a house dog in her last home. She is a lovely dog looking to love and be loved.

ADOPTED!
May 8, 2016

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal id # 575321

Hi there! My name is Rocky and I'm looking for a new home. I am a pretty laid back guy that loves to go for walks and enjoys being around people. I have shown friendly gestures to other dogs here at the shelter, so a canine buddy might be cool. I am getting older and will need a family that is willing to take things easy with me and keep me healthy. The shelter is recommending that children in the home be over 6 years old because my knees and tail are getting sensitive in my middle ages. I hope you come and meet me today! I am about 9 years old and weigh 51 pounds

animal # 575759

Looking for an energetic running partner? Then consider me! I'm Dax, a 3-yr old guy looking for love and kindness, sprinkled with a big dose of gentle boundary setting and patience. I would probably do best as an "only dog", at least to start. I may be a little rambunctious for small children; cats not recommended. I have a lot of energy, which makes me do everything at 110%, including loving my family! I am in a quieter area. Please ask to see me!

"BILLY" and her pup "HENRIETTA"- mom and pup - terrier mixes

 Billy and her puppy Henrietta are looking for a good home TOGETHER!

Available for adoption with Indigo Rescue (may 6, adoption pending!)


Meet Billie (and Henrietta)

Billie is a sweet, sweet girl. She is estimated to be about five years old. Billie's owner died and she was passed along to someone who ended up in jail, and then passed along to someone else who lost their home, and poor Billie ended up living in that persons car. We aren't sure at what point she got knocked up, but we got her four puppies with her. We have spayed Billie, taken care of her fleas, and had a dental done on her. She is a very happy girl. We are going to place Billie with her puppy, Henrietta. They are actually a very sweet pair who love to play and snuggle together, which is unusual for a mama, who is usually DONE with their puppies once they are a bit older. These two might be fine with older kids, but they are probably too much of a flight risk for small kids who can't be aware of open doors and gates like an adult can. Also, Henrietta is super tiny and an easy size to get caught in a door or stepped on. This is definitely something to consider.

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

"TOBY" and "RILEY" awesome Bonded Pair of Schnauzer/Poodle mixes

ADOPTED!
May 2016
 

 Toby animal id #557030
I'm calmer, but like to be bossy with Riley when excited
Hi there! My name is Toby and I came to the shelter with my housemate, Riley, after our owner could no longer care for us. We would love to be adopted as a pair, as I depend on Riley to help me get around. You see, I am getting older and my vision is going. I still get around great though. I am looking for a family that watch over me during my golden years and help me be comfortable. I can be sensitive to some handling, due to my vision loss and will need someone dedicated to taking care of my skin allergies. I have developed an ear infection and the shelter is taking care of that right now. I am a very sweet guy once I'm comfortable and can't wait to meet my new family. I am about 8 years old and weigh 13 pounds. Please come and meet us today!
 
I've more nervous energy, but I help Toby get around
Hi there! My name is Riley and I came to the shelter with my housemate, Toby, after our owner could no longer care for us. We are very bonded and would like to be adopter as a pair. We get along great and Toby depends on me to show him where things are, due to his limited to no vision. Sometimes we can get into little spats, but we really adore each other. What are bro's supposed to do, right? I can be a little anxious around new people, but once I'm comfortable you won't be able to get rid of me! We are asking for a home with kids over the age of 10 years and no cats please. I am about 8 years old and weigh 12 pounds. Please come and meet us today!

"QUEENIE" Video - see Queenie get a relaxing Massage

ADOPTED!
May 2, 2016
"Available for Adoption at Oregon Humane Society!

Queenie's OHS weblink
Ohs animal # 187181

Did you stop in your tracks as you saw Queenie? Makes sense, as she is so beautiful. She is more than just good looks however; she is full of life and ready to take on the world. Queenie is looking for a home without other dogs. Queenie can be overexcited when it comes to meeting new people or when she is in new places so she will need someone who is willing to work on basic manners and continuing socialization. Sometimes excitement just gets the better of her and her zest for life cannot be contained. We recommend mature or dog savvy children for Queenie so they can handle her enthusiasm and will be able to also work with her on training. If you lead an active life and can keep this girl busy then maybe she could be the companion for you. Queenie came to OHS through its Second Chance program from Multnomah County Animal Services. A training consult is included with my adoption to learn more about Queenie

Thank you so much to volunteer Quimby of ResQ Animal Massage
 for helping this girl relax at the shelter!
