– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT DINAH AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose – this is the concrete – and these are my damaged petals.” ― Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete

We would like to introduce Sid, a 4-5 year old 50 lb. hound mix who arrived in Portland from Kaua`i on Christmas Eve in search of his forever home. One look at Sid and it is apparent his life had been rough. His tail was crudely cut off and two deep scars around his neck are evidence of a life on a chain. Sid, who likes to go as Sidn’t Vicious, does not let his rough beginnings get him down, and thinks his scars make him rather edgy and cool.  He loves affection from humans and would make a faithful companion who would be happy to accompany you on walks, jogs, and hikes.  Sid is residing at Dogtribe Doggy Daycare where he has met all sorts of dogs…he does particularly well with females and mellow boys.  He is very smart and enjoys obstacle courses and would love to try lure coursing.  Sid was most likely used as a hunting dog prior to his rescue, so we do not recommend him cohabitating with cats or other small animals.  Just one look into his soulful eyes, and you will see that Sid wants to please.  He knows basic obedience commands- heel, sit, down, place- and has had positive interactions with the other dogs in boarding.  He is neutered and current on his vaccinations. Sid is a rose who has risen from the concrete; we celebrate his tenacity to live and love humans despite his difficult beginnings.  For more information about Sid, please contact Dinah at dinahchao@gmail.com or call Toni at Dogtribe 503-238-0737.  Sidn’t Vicious would love to meet you!
