"COLIN" smaller than small


Well, Colin is not well-represented in this picture because in reality he is a tiny little thing.  His head is the size of a raquetball - very small - only 7 pounds.

Colin is the quintessential lap dog.  That's where he would like to be:  in a warm lap, in a quiet home, with gentle, patient people.

He's so tiny he could almost be a little bug.  Meet Colin today at Multnomah County Animal Shelter.

Not only gorgeous, Bristol will bring love and joy to any loving forever family for many years to come!

"AMELIA" ready to conquer the world!


Amilia is a sweet outgoing soul with a zest for life and living.  Outdoors is where she would like to go!  Here!  There!  Everywhere!  

She loves to stay busy with things to do so if her new parents (when she finds them) can set Amilia up for success through training classes, and leaving her with things to work all day she will thrive!  

Amelia will make a wonderful indoor companion!  Housetrained, walks fantastic on leash, and loving beyond belief.  She would prefer a home without cats.

A good jog in the morning, plenty of food puzzles, meals filled in kongs and a good strong beef bone to much on, is just what she needs!

"HONKY TONK" a country biscuit
