"MILO" a deeper shade of soul

This sweet, older gentleman is one of my favorite types of mutts: chowXshepherd.  i love chow mixed with anything.  Anyone else with me?  Well Milo is one of those very special dogs that doesn't ask for much, but give back eternal love and loyalty in return.

Milo is looking to spend the rest of his life with a loving forever home, that is calm and balance.  Perhaps without kids over 10, and daily walks for fresh air.

This is one special fella.  Meet him today at Multnomah County Animal Shelter.

"TIVA" always by your side



"Tiva" is sweet, demure and pretty close-to-perfect, 2 year old pitbull mix.  She has had some training, sit, stay, off, come naturally to her.  She walks right at your heel on leash, and always checks in, looking at you for encouragement and praise.

Tiva is also crate trained and housebroken.  She loves children, and would do great in a home with older kids.  She may even like to live with a well-matched male dog, as she prefers boys.  No cats please.

"HENRY" don't be alarmed


Henry grew up believing his mother, that his "different" teeth give him character.  Indeed they do.  Although Henry's most notable physical feature are his two underbite cuspids, he is most definitely a sweet soul.  

Henry is house-broken, does just fine with other dogs, but he mostly prefers cats.  His bestest friends in his 10 year old life were cats.

Henry is available for autographs and photos at Multnomah County Animal Shelter.  View his online profile here:

"RENE" okie dokie artichokie!

When Rene first arrived at the shelter, she did not know what to do.  Very scared, she slowly but surely came out of her igloo, out into her kennel, to see what was up.  

She's doing much better now, but would love and appreciate a quiet home....without all the noise!  This wonderful 7lb, 5 year old loves to hang on laps, and snuggle.  Rene's ideal forever home will be a quiet one, with lots of love, and patience.  She's a little chocolate bon bon!

"KAHLUA" with a side of sweet

This angel face belongs to "Kahlua," a very sweet female pitbull who is looking for her forever home. She has been in foster care for the few weeks that she's been in the MCAS shelter system.  The world is a big place and she is learning how to be in it.  Kahlua has mastered house-training, and is even living with children.

She's a beauty!  View her video below:

Every scruff-a-muffin that arrives at the shelter, severely neglected and painfully matted, will most likely find themselves in the healing hands of volunteer extraordinaire Bonnie, who just can't say no to a dog needing relief from a life of discomfort and filth.

Just take Fraggyl, above, for example.  In just one afternoon, his extreme make-over brought him from sad, to fabulous!  Can you believe this is the same dog?



Stay tuned for more of Bonnie's Miracle Make-overs, as well as adoption information for Sir Fraggyl!

"BRADY" bunches of love


This dumpling is "Brady," a 6 month old American Shelter Dog that is only slightly behind the grade when it comes to training.  He is learning at a rapid pace at the shelter with Open Paw training, and he is looking for a loving home that will continue with positive reinforcement training classes!

Brady would flourish in a forever, loving home with structure, guidance and consistency.  Smaller children may be a little too chaotic for him, a family that is committed to give this fella a second chance is really what he needs.
