My name is Mallet 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! My owner recently passed away and I am a bit anxious here at the shelter and I may be in the home for a bit until I know I'm safe. I would be happiest as an only dog in the home. Please come and take me home today!

Hi there! My name is Tuna, a 1 year old German Shepherd chap. I am fun, like going on walks (and runs), and am looking for a patient family that will provide me with the right positive training to help me be the best dog I can be. I am a bit mouthy when I get excited and when it is playtime, so any kids in the home need to be 12 and up. Ask to meet me today!

"RUGBY" cutie yellow lab/pitmix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location

Rugby, maleLab/pitbull, 2 yrs 68lbs
here's my Mcas weblink  
182012
I am Rugby an active and playful Pitbull mix. I am about 2 years old and weigh 72lbs. You could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands I learn with my mouth. To an exuberant dog like me everything is a game, sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up and grab the first thing that looks like a toy or bite at your shoes to tell you I a ready to play. I probably haven't had much if any training, nor have I seen much of the world so sometimes I am afraid of new things. I am looking for a patient family willing to train me and if there are kids in my new home they should be at least 12 years old and respectful of my need for some time and space to adjust to new things.

I am Brownie Ala Mode an active and playful girl. I am about 5 years old and weigh around 67lbs. I would rather play with a person than a toy and sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up. I am ready to seek out a home with someone who will be active and yet want to cuddle. I am looking for a family who does not take life too seriously that will be patient, positive and lift me to my potential of being a perfect pup! Because I tend to jump on people, the shelter is recommending that if there are kids in my new home, they are 5 & up.

My name is Cleo and I am really happiest being where my people are. I would love nothing more than the curl up on your lap or trot along with you on walks. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. I have shown some fearful and mouthy behaviors in the shelter, so if you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years. I do like other dogs, so I would be fine if you had another canine friend for me to play with. Please come and meet me today!

I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 8 years due to my mouthy behaviors. Please come and meet me today!

I'm Roxie, a mature Pitbull gal seeking someone to share the couch with. My true love will enjoy watching movies and staying cozy as we watch the winter fade to spring.

Come meet me today and let's plan our first movie marathon!

"CUPID" Cutie tan (labby like?) mix

Great young dog!
 "Cupid" (his Valentine's shelter name) is hoping for a loving and stable home where someone spend lots of quality daily time with him, and understands that he can be fearful of some new things he 
encounters, and will help him to build confidence.
 "Silly talk" often helps!

Are you looking for companionship? Well I'm Cupid, a mixed breed fella, and I've got the formula for love! I crunched the numbers and ran the data - it turns out that we are a perfect match, it's a mathematical certainty! I'm a special boy, sometimes I get a bit fearful in new situations but I recover quickly. When I'm working up a new hypothesis, I can get a bit excited and will jump on you to try to tell you all about it! Because I'm a very serious scientist, I need any children in my new home to be 5 years or older. Let's go home, fall in love, and discover the wonders of the universe together!






 Oh, that's the spot!

Looking for a whirlwind romance? I'm Steven, a young German Shepherd mix who is enthusiastic and energetic seeking someone with equal passion and energy! I can be wary of meeting new people but bring me some good food and we'll have lots to talk about. I'm looking for someone with the right adventurous spirit who will help me tackle my baggage - namely handling sensitivity and mild food guarding (I mentioned I loved food, right?). Because I'm focusing on improving myself right now, I need a new home where any children are 12 years or older and there are no other animals. Are you ready to fall in love? I'm in a different area of the shelter so ask to meet me!

"YARA" English Mastiff/Cane Corso mix


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location


"Once Yara knows you, she is a complete love. She"ll lean against you, roll on her back and smile as you give her belly rubs. I adore this lady!" Brandy T

Yara, female Cane Corso/English Mastiff, 4 yrs 8 mths, 
89 lbs
152183
Mcas weblink 

Hi there! My name is Yara, a 4 year old Mastiff mix. I am a very special lady, looking for a very special home. Were you wondering where my name came from? It means "little butterfly". I was very scared when I first came into the shelter, but with the help of staff and volunteers I have learned that people and things are not that scary - especially if they treats! I bond hard with my people, and sometimes that makes me guard them from strangers so I need a family that understands that and will work with me constantly on creating positive experiences and that uses positive reinforcement training methods with me. I also have shown that I have a bit of a fear of men. When I warm up to you, I am a very playful girl that LOVES going on walks (sometimes I like to run too, do you think you can keep up with me?), plays tug-o-war like a champ, and is the BIGGEST cuddle bug you ever did see. My new family will be adult only, and I need a quiet household without a lot of traffic. I need to be the only animal in the home. I AM IN A DIFFERENT PART OF THE SHELTER - ASK A STAFF MEMBER OR VOLUNTEER HOW TO MEET ME TODAY!
