Mcas weblink
animal # 581361

My name is Blitz! I am looking for a nice family to give me lots of attention. I actively seek to be with my people, and would love nothing more than to be a big part of your lives! I would really enjoy a somewhat active family who can help me get back into shape and shed some of the pounds I have put on. Are you ready for me? Because I am ready for you! I am around 10 years old and weigh about 90 pounds.


"COTTON CANDY" cool Scottie type? terrier mix

I sure hope this guy gets a good Indoor Home. He'll be very handsome with a good bath/brushing!

animal id # 586515


My name is Cotton Candy. I'm a wonderful sweet treat of a guy and the shelter thinks I'll provide lots of fun and love for some lucky home. I'm about years old and weigh about 27lbs. As you may notice when you see me, I'll need some TLC to look my best. A bath, good quality diet and regular flea control should be part of my routine.


"WASABI" cute independant Shibu Inu


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 587160


My name is Wasabi. I'm a spicy red Shiba Inu about 7 years old. Part of the Japanese standard says: "A spirited boldness, a good nature, and an unaffected forthrightness, which together yield dignity and natural beauty. The Shiba has an independent nature and can be reserved toward strangers but is loyal and affectionate to those who earn his respect." The shelter recommends kids in the new home are 12 & up as Wasabi will need some time to bond to with his new people and would appreciate a quieter home with respectful children who can follow directions and give him some time and distance when he needs it.




"PORTER" BIG Personable Lab/mastiff likes other dogs

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Porter here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584022


Hi there! My name is Porter and I'm looking for a new home. I am a big, energetic boy that could use some freshening up on my leash manners. I just want to go, go, go! I am a very sweet guy when you are part of my inner circle. You see, it can take me a while to let new people in. I do have some good skills down already though. I know how to sit, down, and shake. I also enjoy the company of other dogs! I am quite protective of my food and for this reason I am looking for an ADULT ONLY home. If you're looking for an active, loyal companion, please take me out in a yard and get to know me. I am about 3 years old and weigh 94 pounds.

animal id # 584006

Hey everybody! My name is Linus and I'm looking for a special home! The shelter is a very stressful place for a high energy guy like me. My perfect home would be one that is very active and has the time to give me the exercise and mental stimulation that I need. I love toys, especially the tennis ball! It is certainly my favorite. I love chasing it and bringing it back for you to throw again. I have some great skills already down which include a super sit, shake and down. I am very motivated by treats as well and am eager to learn more! I will need an adult only home that is also dog free! I need and demand to be your center of attention. If you think we could make a great match, come down and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 74 pounds.

animal id # 586588


My name is August. I am have a warm and bright personality. I love to be cuddled and enjoy resting on a comfy lap. I also enjoy getting outside and breathing in the clean Oregon air! I would prefer to be walked on a harness than a collar. I would also prefer other potential canine friends to be my size rather than bigger than me. If you would like to say hi, I am down at the shelter waiting to see you! I am 3 years old and weigh 7 pounds.


"RUSTLER" fun Jack Russell Terrier mix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id# 587081


Howdy pardner, my name is Rustler. I would look so cute with a wild west bandana and a little cowboy hat to play the part. I'm on a mission to rustle up a new home. I could do lots of chores around your homestead, like hold down the fort, patrol the yard and take you out to explorin'. Even if you don't have a campfire, I'm still good company. I'm about years old and weigh around 22lbs. I've been in need of some doctoring so some good quality grub and regular flea control should be a part of my new life. The shelter is recommending kids 8 & up 'cause my skin is sensitive.

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 587022


My name is Carolina, ya'll! Full of fun and energy, I am looking for that active family to take me out and let me explore the world! I know sit, down, and shake, and would love to learn even more stuff with my new friends by my side. I can be a bit nervous around other dogs at first, so introductions should be done slow to help me out. Come on down to the shelter and take me out for a spin! I am 1 year old and weigh 38 pounds.

"LOLA Tiny Cudde Bug" - in Foster home

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Lola the Tiny Cuddle Bug is in a MCAS Foster home!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 547519

Hi there! My name is Teeny Tiny Cuddlebug or "Lola" as my foster family calls me. I lived a quiet indoor life with a senior owner up until now so I didn't get out much to see the world. I'm working on house training and have a pretty good idea of how it works but I will need a patient new owner who can keep helping me learn. I like yummy treats and those are helping with my training. I'm about 6 years old and weigh a teeny tiny 11lbs. I'm looking for a quiet home and if there are children, they should be at least 8 years old so I can settle in, be comfortable and blossom in my new home. I am learning about cats and if you have a dog savvy cat, I might be ok with them. I am currently living with other dogs but would prefer to be your only canine friend if possible. I am currently in a foster home, if you are interested in meeting me, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time.




"CINDY LOU" Cuddly senior Pitbull - NOW in Foster!

"She came without ribbons. She came without tags. She came without packages, boxes or bags... Maybe Great Dogs don't come from a store. Maybe Great Dogs mean a little bit more.

Hey everybody! My name is Cindy Lou and I'm looking for a nice retirement home! I am just the sweetest lady who enjoys giving kisses, going for walks, and spending time with my humans. As you can see, I am in need of some good TLC. Though I'm quite lumpy and bumpy, I still have a lot of pep in my step and can't wait to settle in somewhere for my golden years. My new home will need to be an adult only home without any other dogs. I am around 12 years old and weigh 68 pounds. I am currently taking a break from the shelter in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time. You will love me!

"CAMILLA" Happy, blind, 15lb terrier type likes cats -Indigo Rescue

It's amazing that this great dog is still looking for a new home! 

Available for Adoption with  Indigo Rescue!
Camilla is living in a foster home 

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

Meet Camilla!Camilla is a sweet, sweet, happy girl who loves to follow you everywhere, and be by your side or in your lap. The only problem she has is that she is blind. This doesn't slow her down, though. She navigates almost exactly like a sighted dog, and might even see shadows out of one eye. All she really needs to do is figure out where everything is, and then she remembers and goes around it. Camilla is estimated by the vet at approximately 5.5 years old. Camilla is not sad about her impairment. She is just happy to be with you all the time! She will be happiest in a home with a securely fenced yard and no stairs (one or two steps is okay once she knows they are there). Walking on a leash is fine, but can be exhausting because she doesn't know where there might be a dip or a curb, or a branch sticking out, etc. Off-leash in a secure backyard is best because once she knows where things are, she can run and kick up her heels a bit. Camilla loves to run and play in the yard when it's a sunny day!
Camilla usually does fine with other dogs, but she is afraid when she meets them on the leash because she has no way of knowing what their intentions are. She can be defensive initially. Once she knows another dog and she is off-leash in the yard with them, she does great, but in the end, she really wants to be the only dog in her home. She would prefer not to share the attention of her person. She is completely fine with cats.
We aren't exactly sure what breed mix Camilla is. Her coat is silky and doesn't shed much, and she weighs 15lbs. Whatever she is, she's super cute!

"LELU" sweetheart Pitbull


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Porter here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 585629


Lelu here! I'm a sweet pitbull lady looking for my new home. I can be fearful in new places but once I warm up, I'm a really sweetheart. I love to be around my favorite people getting as much attention as I can soak up! I don't always get along with other dogs so I would do best as the only dog in my new home. I already know 'sit' and 'shake' and I bet with some positive, reward-based training we could learn lots more. Because of my fearfulness I would also do best in a home with kids 12 years and older. If you think we're a good match come say hi! I'm about 5 years old and weigh 65 lbs.
 

"GINGER" pretty little red pitmix

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink  
animal id # 579301

Hi there! My name is Ginger and I'm looking for an active, dog-savvy home that understands my sensitive nature. I am a very sweet girl, but can be easily startled of new people, environments, and novel objects. It can take me a bit to feel comfortable, but once I am, I will love you until the end of days. I am looking for an owner that can make me safe and show me that the world isn't such a scary place. Reward based classes would be highly beneficial for me to learn basic skills and self confidence. I can get a little mouthy when I'm overexcited so a home with kids over the age of 12 years is recommended. I have been selective about my canine friends, and would match best with a dog who is more calm and appropriate than rough and rowdy. If you think we could make a great match, come and meet me today. I am about 5 years old and weigh 43 pounds.

"GLORIANA" cool Bulldog mix

  
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584333
Hi there! My name is Gloriana and I'm looking for a new family to love. I have been very shy here, but once I'm out of my kennel, boy do I light up! I am everything you could ask a Bulldog to be. Wiggly, bouncy, playful, sloppy kisser! I am looking for a home that can give me proper exercise and a loving heart. I'm not a fan of sharing my food though, so kids in the home are recommended to be over the age of 10 years. I should be an only pet. If you think we could make a fantastic team, come and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 60 pounds.

"COOKIE" cutest pint size Pitbull


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
animal # 584693
Mcas weblink 

Hi there, anyone up for a Cookie? If you are then you should ask to meet me. I 'm an active girl ready for fun adventures. The shelter says that by using reward based training methods I could be "one smart Cookie". I am about 3 years old and weigh 43lbs. I should not go to a home with cats, as I'm a little too interested in them if you know what I mean. I have also not gotten along with every dog here so I might be selective about my doogie friends! Because I like to jump and can be a little rough the shelter is recommending kids are at least 12 years old in my new home. Come say hi!

 




 

"SHATZI" sweetie senior Doxie


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 585615

My name is Shatzi. I am a sweet, calm little Dachshund. It may take me a minute to trust you, but once I do I am very loving and friendly. I like to sit on laps on occasion, but prefer to stay on the ground than being picked up and carried around. I am an older girl who's body is a little older, and thus I can be a little sensitive to some handling. It is best that I go to a home with kids over 6 years old. I am quite lovely, so please come down to the shelter to see me! I am 12 years old and weigh 19 pounds.




 

 
 

" DIDYMUS " Shih Tzu mix

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink  (3/21 adoption pending)
animal id # 584474

Didymus here! I'm a goofy shih tzu mix fella on the search for a new home. I really enjoy rolling around in soft blankets, showing off my "sit" for a tasty treat, and exploring every scent in the neighborhood as I go for a walk. I can sometimes be fearful in new situations but with your help I'd love to move forward and explore all the wonderful things in the world. I have shown some food guarding here and don't always enjoy being handled by people so I would do best in a home with children 12 years and older. Because I can be very particular about people, I would need to meet the entire family before going home with you. Come say hi! I'm about 3 years old and weigh 13 lbs
