ADOPTED together!!!
Mar 2017
 
Available for Adoption with  Indigo Rescue!
Teddy and Eleanor are living together in a foster home 
update - Mar 4 - possible adopters


Eleanor and Teddy are sometimes at Indigo adoption outreaches
"We have a few of our dogs available for meets at :
Tanasbourne Petco on Thursdays from 4-7pm and at
 PetSmart on 185th and Walker in Hillsboro every other Sunday from noon until 3pm"
March Sunday Petsmart dates are the 12th and 26th 
please note that Indigo Rescue is not "first come first serve" they seek to find a best forever match with the dog(s) and the new home.
 

Eleanor's Indigo Rescue link  (adoption application is also on this weblink)
Eleanor is an adult Shih Tzu who was estimated to be 8 years old. She came in to the county shelter as a stray with her companion, a male Shih Tzu named Teddy. They are a bonded pair and we will only adopt them out together. Eleanor had a severe dental abscess that had ruptured through her cheek but we had our vet do a dental surgery to repair it, and her personality blossomed within 12 hours of her surgery. She felt GOOD! She has immature cataracts and may be slightly hard of hearing, but Eleanor is a sweet, sweet girl. These two would make a great companion pair for an adult household or one with teens
 
Teddy's Indigo Rescue link (adoption application is also on the weblink)
Teddy is an sweet and adorable Shih Tzu, estimated to be around 7 years old. He came in to the county shelter as a stray, with his female companion, another Shih Tzu named Eleanor. They are a bonded pair so we will only adopt them out together. Teddy is so sweet and such a happy boy. When he came to the shelter he had a pretty bad cherry eye and a few growths on his back but those have been removed and he is feeling pretty good now!  He was also intact, and neutering him made a big difference, too!

OWR Facebook link
No cats
No birds
No small furries
Female dogs encouraged
Here's Diesel's OWR weblink  (Mar 2 Adoption Pending)
UPDATE 2/19:
Diesel's OWR Foster home notes: "Diesel is a sweet guy who is allowing his personality to show through while becoming more a member of the pack each day (I have 3 of my own weims). Similar to his brother, Diesel came into our home being a bit aloof, but he is now warming up to us and seeking our attention. Diesel is a really calm dog, which is surprising given his young age, who is becoming just a total sweetheart. He is even becoming fond of going into his wire crate. Command responsiveness is also improving every day."

"TINKER" and "TATER" bonded Chi mix pair

ADOPTED Together!
Mar 2017
 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Tinker and Tater are together in a MCAS Foster home
 
Tinker here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584025

Tinker here! I am a 10 year old sweetie pie. I only weigh about four and a half pounds. I came to the shelter with my friend Tater and we are very bonded. We would love if we could stay together I love to sleep under the covers in your bed and be carried around. I am a wonderful lap companion. I recently had a surgery to have both of my eyes removed as they were causing me a lot of pain when I came to the shelter. I have recovered in a foster home and we are ready now! We are both housetrained and make great house guests. We would love a quieter home where we can feel safe. We think cats are a little too fun and would do best in a home without them. I really like other dogs but Tater does not so we would prefer to be your only canine friends. If you think that we might be a good fit for your home, please ask about us today. We are in a foster home . If you are interested in meeting us, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time.


Tater here's my Mcas weblink  (3/3 possible adopter?)
animal id # 584024

Tater here! I am a 6 year old wonderful guy that only weighs five and a half pounds. I came to the shelter with my friend Tinker and we are very bonded. We would love if we could stay together. I am a frisky guy and loves to play. I take a little while to warm up with new people but if you are patient with me, I promise I will sneak up for some love. We are both housetrained and make great house guests. We would love a quieter home where we can feel safe. We think cats are a little too fun and would do best in a home without them. I am not very fond of dogs other than Tinker. If you think that we might be a good fit for your home, please ask about us today. We are in a foster home while Tinker was recovering from surgery. If you are interested in meeting us, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time.

 


 

"PERRY" super nice little blind Shiba Inu

ADOPTED!
Mar 2017

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584734

Hi, my name is Perry. I'm a lovely 10 year old Shiba Inu weighing in at about 25lbs. I'm looking for a special home because I'm blind. Trust me though, there's nothing wrong with my nose or ears. I can smell food and hear the crinkle of a food wrapper just fine. Although I cannot see, I will learn the layout of a new home just fine. I also have a very luxurious coat that makes petting me addictive. The shelter is recommending respectful kids 8 & up
 


  

"CUBBY" cute little blue pittie

ADOPTED!
Mar 2017
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
animal # 583479
Mcas weblink

Cubby here! I'm a goofy pitbull mix boy looking for a new home. You may have noticed that I have some skin issues right now (update - really, it looks pretty good now!) and I may very likely need continued veterinary care to ensure that I heal properly. I may have had a rough past but I'm all about the future! I am planning on a long future of playing games, long walks, giving and getting kisses, and plenty of love. I am a sturdy dog who leans into pets and I sometimes get a little too excited about taking treats and don't watch for fingers, so I would do best in a home with children 6 years and older. I promise that a life with me will be a life with plenty of laughs and lots of doggy kisses! I do ask that there are no female dogs in the home and I may be male selective. My ideal home environment would be no other dogs in the household. I'm about 2-years-old and weigh 49-lbs

Chop here! Fun, bubbly, and the right amount of cuddles for you, I am ready to take on the world with my new family. I am a happy boy, but sometimes I forget my manners when I meet new friends. I have a good base for training with a solid "sit", but some more classes will help me become an awesome canine citizen. I have been around other dogs, but would love more experience to help me learn the best way to play! Can't wait to meet you, so come on down to the shelter and say hello. I am around 10 months old and weigh 33 pounds.

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584678

My name is Pippa. A beautiful, loving girl with a more reserved and sensitive personality. I can be shy with new people at first. If you are patient and calm with me, I can brighten up and enjoy lots of affection. I'd love a home to keep me active and help me shed some of the extra weight. I walk nicely on leash, take treats softly, and I know sit and shake-with both paws!! I would prefer a home that has kids 6 years and older. Come find me at the shelter-I may just be the companion you've been looking for! I am around 8 years old and weigh 75 pounds.

"CHEWBACCA" goodnatured sturdy Pitbull

Returned to Owner!
Mar 2017
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 583968

My name is Chewbacca. I am around 4 years old and I weigh 75 lbs. I am a big, strong boy who will need a new family able to keep up with my needs. Please consider using a head halter or other appropriate equipment to make walks with me enjoyable for the both of us. The shelter recommends I go to a family with sturdy kids 13 & up, and I should be the only resident pet in my new home. I love back rubs and playing fetch. I also know sit and shake, so I have a good foundation to build on if we take reward-based classes together. Hope to see you at the shelter soon!

Mcas weblink

Hi I'm Bruno - a male Doberman Pinscher pup looking for a new home! I'm sweet and goofy and lots of fun. Like most young dogs, I would do best to have some reward-based training done to help instill manners and social skills as I am just learning out to interact with other dogs appropriately. I am very active and looking for a new home able to keep up with me! However, I haven't always done well with kids in the past and would need to go home with kids 8 years or older. I'm about 6 months old and weigh 38 lbs.

animal id # 584636

My name is Buddy. I'm a cute little guy who's had a tough go of it, and I am looking for a quiet and stable home to help me get back to normal. I recently lost my owner, and being here at the shelter has been difficult for me. Once out of my kennel, I can be a very curious, social, and loving guy. However, it does take me time to warm up to new people-but once I do, get ready to have a new best friend! I really love my squeaky toy, and will carry it around with me. The shelter is recommending that I go to a home with kids over the age of 10 years old. If you are looking to help out a cute little guy get back on his feet, then come on down to the shelter to say hello. I am 5 years old and weigh 11 pounds.
I AM CURRENTLY IN ANOTHER PART OF THE SHELTER. PLEASE ASK TO SEE ME

"STEVEN" cutie pitmix

ADOPTED!
Feb 2017

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink
animal id # 584394

Hey there! My name is Steven and I'm a sensitive boy that's looking for an active, yet relaxed home. I am a very sweet, playful boy once I feel comfortable. I probably haven't been exposed to a lot of new things in my life and get easily startled by loud noise, sudden movements, and new places. I need a family that will show me that the world isn't such a scary place. I am very treat and toy motivated, so that should make training fun and easy! I already know how to sit, shake, and down! Isn't that fantastic? It is recommended that children in the home be at least 8 years old due to my fearful nature. I will make a great companion and can't wait to find my new family! Please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh pounds.

"DIXIE" UPDATE - happy young mini Yellow Lab mix - Golden Bond Rescue

ADOPTED!
Feb 2017

Dixie is for Adoption with Golden Bond Rescue
Dixie was originally rescued from the China meat trade, and later rescued/transported to Portland  GBR to live in a Foster Home. Dixie looks like a little mini Yellow Lab. She is a very happy and affectionate dog!

here is Dixie's GBR website link  (note: you can read about Golden Bond Rescue's "China Connection Program" on their main website page)

DixieGBR #2723

 My name is Dixie (#2723) and if you’ll forgive me for just a minute, I’d like to brag about myself:  I am sweet, loving, beautiful, soft, playful, energetic, fun . . . you name it, if it’s a positive quality for a girl to have then I probably have it.  Since coming here from China last year, I have learned manners, commands, crate-training and house-training.  I’ve heard it said, not only by my foster family but also by others who have met me, that I am “an amazing dog.”  Again, please forgive me if I sound brash or arrogant.  I’m really uncomfortable bragging about myself like this, but I need to let you know what you’ll be getting if you adopt me.
Although I can’t be certain what breed (or breeds) my parents were, it’s pretty clear at least one of them was a yellow lab.   I look like a yellow lab only a bit smaller than most.  I hope that’s okay with you.  Now here’s the part of my story that I want to tread lightly on (I laugh whenever I say that):  I am missing a few inches of my front leg which has only a partially formed paw. Please hear me out on this though:  I may look a bit clumsy when I walk but I can run like the wind and jump like a dog on an invisible pogo stick. Please, please don’t let my physical appearance keep you from adopting me.  If you feel like we would be a good match, I’ve learned to deal with my “pawdicap” (what you might call a handicap) and I can help you learn to deal with it too.
 Oh!  And speaking of my little “pawdicap”, it does not bother my foster sister one little bit.  She’s my bestie and she says she’d love me no matter how many deformed paws I had.  She and I can play for hours and hours and hours. It’s so much fun!  If you have a dog that likes to play, I’m sure I can quickly adapt to a new bestie.  I’ll miss my foster sister but I understand that my home with her is only temporary.  While having a playmate in my forever home would be a huge plus from my perspective, it’s not absolutely required — that is assuming, of course, you would be willing to spend time playing with me yourself.  Woof!
Finally, I walk great on a leash and love car rides. I’m a very sensitive girl and truly aim to please everyone. A little bit of re­direction or scolding goes a long way with me.  If I have an occasional issue with “impulse control”, I trust you’ll understand that I simply need to be gently reminded of my manners.  After all, I am still a very young dog and it takes a few years to reach perfection.
I hope you’ll consider making me a part of your family.
Adoption fee:  $650 plus $35 microchip fee (please note - the dogs rescue from the China meat trade carry higher adoption fees because of the higher costs involved in the rescue)
Sex: Female
Age: 18 months
Weight: 47 pounds
