Oh hi there! My name is Ehtel Mae, but most people just call me Ethel. I am a sassy and vivacious 8 year old rat terrier mix who is just too cute! Being a petite lady, I am only weigh about 8 lbs or so, which is perfect because I love snuggling a warm lap. Though I am a little skeptical about new people, I do eventually warm up to my patient adult friends who let me come out on my own time. My favorite activity is cuddling whether it be on the couch or curled up under the covers in bed or any other warm spot I can find, including your coat! My fosters even say that I tend to have a preferred person, but will never turn down a lap! I can be a little nervous outside in busy areas, so I would do best with in a low key quiet area. I am not a huge fan of cats and will tell them to back off, so I would do best in a home without them or at least a super dog savvy kitty who won’t try and seek me out. With my dog friends, I can be a pretty picky gal, but with a slow intro I will eventually warm up to adult mellow dogs my size (like my friend Toby who has since found his forever home). I can be a bit vocal at times, being a terrier and all, so I would do best in a house set up without shared walls with neighbors. I also can find any hole along the fence line, so a yard that is securely fenced is best. If you squeak a toy, I am always happy to join in a round or two of fetch. Silly and sweet with a dash of spice, I am a little gal with a lot of love to give! Fill out an application to set up a meeting with me today. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi there! My name Izzy and I am very sweet and adorable 13 yo Chihuahua. I am looking for a mellow home with lots of love and lap cuddles, oh and maybe some tasty treats too. I really really like food you see. A total foodie, if you will. If I could take selfies with my meals for the gram, I totally would. My dream is even to start a food blog. Better late than never I say! Though I grew up living with 8 other doggies, I am not a huge fan of sharing the spotlight. Another mellow male dog my age would be ok, but I would also love to be the only pup you share your dinners with! I would likely do best without kitties. I am a quiet gal and can sometimes switch from being a total velcro dog to a more independent lady who sleeps on my bed in the other room. It takes me a little while to warm up to new adult human pals as transitions are a little hard for me, but eventually I warm up and will even paw at you for pets. Sometimes I will even get a burst of energy and play chase games with you around the house! Though I couldn’t really do an apartment, a duplex or townhome with a little fenced yard attached to it with direct access to outside in a very quiet low traffic area would be best. The household I came from never really put harnesses or leashes on us, so we would much rather do our business by having you open a door and wandering in the secured yard versus walks down the street. What do you say…want to help me start my blog? I’m thinking of calling it Pupcakes and Woofles: A Dog’s Guide to the Portland Food Scene. Fill out an application today to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, microchipped with recent bloodwork and a dental and an adoption fee of $350.

Do I have the cutest underbite in all the land? Why yes, yes I do! The name is Fred and with my good looks and silly personality, it’s near impossible to resist my puppy like charm. At 4 years old, I am a Southern transplant making my way to the great PNW all the way from Texas. Here, I have already made a lot of new friends and am excited to meet more! Since I am still new to this area, I am still a little sensitive to busy environments and so I am not really one for walks right now. I would much rather hang in the yard with my dog pals or play some fetch in front of a nice warm fireplace inside. I am a very spunky Chihuahua mix who really likes to play with my fellow dog friends. My foster siblings aren’t into playing with me as much, so I tend to have to self entertain with toys and chewies. Having a playful dog in my home would be awesome not only because it would be so much fun, but also help boost my confidence and feel comfortable while you are gone for the day. That reminds me, I would do best in a home setup without shared walls with neighbors and a yard to run around in since I am not a fan of those walks.  My foster home does have some playful kitties residing there and I do pretty good with them. Sometimes I ignore them, and other times I am in the mood to play, so a confident at used to energetic dogs is key. I can be overwhelmed by lots of activity and noises, so a quiet home is ideal and I wouldn’t mind living with a dog experienced older kiddo over 13. Quirky and adorable, I am a affectionate kid who is happy to be by your side. Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

One Bourbon on the rocks, please! Barreled aged to perfection at 2 years old, I am a silly and energetic catahoula mix weighing 67 lbs. Hailing from Texas, cuddling with me at the end of a long day of adventures is the Southern Comfort you need. Always in high spirits, my foster says that I really enjoy being outside and going for car rides, so I would likely be a great camping and hiking companion. I just haven’t had the chance to really explore the PNW yet, and to be honest, the rain is not my favorite. I am a very social guy with my human pals over 12 and am a bit on the bouncy side. I know quite a few things already, but haven’t quite matured into the top shelf just yet and could always work on some extra training and skills. Right now, I am in an apartment and it is just not working out for me. I really need room to stretch my young pup legs and run around in the backyard with you, playing fetch. I do great with other dogs and can be a little rambunctious, so a dog who can keep up with me while also teaching me how to take breaks is ideal. No kitties in my home please! I am full of charm and my goofy antics turn any frown upside down. Don’t worry though! I am not always about running around and am more than happy to have some snuggle times too. I will even put my paw on your lap and just stare, waiting for pets…or any tasty food items you might have. Zany, fun and oh so cute (I mean look at my little chin beard), I am ready to start exploring with you today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! Will you be my forever human? 

I was found on the streets of Portland a year ago by a kind soul who has given me a wonderful home to recover from my tough life. My foster mom got me spayed, vaccinated, microchipped. But unfortunately, I can not stay with her forever. 

I am about 4.5 years old Pit-bull mix. My foster mom has been calling me Hazel for the last 14 months, and I know and respond to that name well. I am super mellow and just want to be at my human’s feet all day long. It would be ideal if you are retired or work from home. I get anxious alone. I don’t jump or bark much, but I love giving kisses to everyone who walks in the house, including children. I have been told that I am a sensitive and bondable kind, so I need a strong human who doesn’t get anxious easily, as that can get me nervous too. It has been recommended that a home without young children present all the time will be best. 

 Right now I share a house with a cat, and we stay away from each other, and I gladly share my water bowl with her. But I do like chasing cats and squirrels out on my walk. I have a bummed leg so I walk slowly and rarely run. Because of my past, I get growly with other dogs. Not so much the little ones, but definitely the big ones. I respond great to positive reinforcement training, and am looking forward to attending a reactive dog class, if you want to help me get over my fear of dogs. For now, I need to be the only canine in the house. 

Stairs are difficult for me. Few carpeted or concrete steps are fine, but a hardwood staircase is a big no.

After I got spayed last summer, I gained some weight and am currently at 78 pounds, but we are working on bringing me down to a healthier 68. I’m also working on my dental health, but it might be a long process to get my pearls to shine.

I will come with my beloved kennel, food bowls and everything else you might need for me. 

The adoption fee is $350. 

Please contact my foster mom Sasha at alexandra.gor12@gmail.com

My name is Shelia and I am a gorgeous 7 yo spayed cattledog mix looking for a new home. I am a sweet lady who is very smart and even knows a lot of tricks. My ideal environment would be a cat free home and if there was a dog in the home, it would need to be an older relaxed confident male dog. I would do best in a kid free home and ideally need a patient person who is in a stable regular day to day routine, without a lot of change or transition. I need a house setup where there is some space to roam since I am still an active gal. I am not really a snuggler and am more independent. I do love to play frisbee and fetch with you though! I also really enjoy my neighborhood walks. If interested in my adoption, please email my foster Clarence at the email above.

BOOM BOOM! Is that a thunderstorm? Nope, it’s a big old goofy bulldog stomping down the hallway after his favorite toy. Hi there! My name is Thor and I am a sweet silly 1 year old English Bulldog weighing just under 50lbs. I am a totally ham with a puppy like charm that has everyone smiling. Just like my movie counterpart, I am a handsome gent ready to save the world! Ok, so maybe I don’t have a special hammer, but I do have my funny snorts that can save anyone for a bad day. Being a pup, I still doing a lot of learning, but with me being pretty food motivated, it should be a piece of cake! Mmmm, cake. Speaking of training, A TRAINING LESSON IS MANADATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. Since I am a big bouncy fellow, I would do best with older kiddos over 12 who won’t mind me excitedly bumping into them from time to time. I live with other dogs currently and I think having another doggy in the home would be ideal. An adult female who can still play but also can teach me some play skills and when to take breaks. No kitties in my home please. Longer work days would be a bit hard for me, so I am looking for a house set up with no shared walls with neighbors and a family with a stable schedule. I can get excited when I see dogs on leash, and with some desensitization training, I could be a walking companion. Since I still need to practice leash skills, living in a lower traffic area would be best. The trainer met with me and said I am overall just a really nice pup who someone is going to adore. I will be your superhero if you will be mine! So fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Glide and I am an endearing and very sweet 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier looking for a place to retire. Though I don’t really see or hear to well, my little nub tail wags so fast when I can sniff you out! Once I get your location, I glide on over to you for some extra pets and attention. Though I may be older, I still have some life left in me and enjoy a very short potty walk, and then it is back inside for cuddles. Napping is my specialty, but it’s so much better next to a warm fireplace with you by my side. Because I am a little stiff in the backend, I would do best in a home without a lot of stairs and direct access to outside. I am a very quiet guy and just really easy going. I am ok with other mellow dogs like myself and would enjoy some four legged company in my new home. Because I am an older gent, I would do best in a quiet adult only house set up. When I could smell the office kitty, I got a little excited, so I would likely do best in a cat free home. I am just an adorable and  resilient pup who is ready to find a loving companion who can give me lots of pets and love during the rest of my days. Fill out an application today to set up a meet with me! As a forever foster/hospice doggy, I come to you neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and a recent dental and bloodwork with continued medical support from Pixie.
