"JACKSON" smart, savvy medium size (Cattle Dog type) mix

Returned to owner!
Mar 29, 2015


Yes! so happy his owners figured it out and came to get him.  
 
 Sometimes you can just tell when taking a dog out for a walk - or photos - and Jackson was a dog who really wanted his owners to come get him
 
so just a reminder
- please microchip and tag your pets and keep the contact info current..
-  not all good owners know to look for their lost pets at the local county shelters. 
 - also ( but this doesn't apply in Jackson's case....) not all good finders realize that they need to let the county shelters know they found a lost dog! so help educate people please
- one more thing?  please appreciate your Local County Animal Shelters and support them and the shelter animals however you can!!

Hello, my name is Jackson! Are you looking for a social, fun, mature dog who already has good manners? Please come meet me! I am a charming boy who has been walking nicely on leash, have already been taught some good skills like sit, down, and shake and am looking for a new family! My adopters should be active, interested in having a smart engaging dog and can provide me with lots of love! I am around 5 years old and weigh 46 pounds

"IZZABELLA" aussie mix with soulful eyes


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 497039

Hello from me.  Izzabella! I know the first thing you see when you look at me is my lack of hair, but please remember beauty is only skin deep and inside I'm a very nice dog! I'm about 8 years old and weigh 48lbs. I'm active and playful and love attention. The shelter is working on getting me fixed up so my new owners will need to do some followup at their vet. The shelter recommends respectful kids 12 or older in my new home. I'm a lovely diamond in the rough and deserve a chance at a better life.


 
 

"DOLLY" - Doxie - my Birthday wish is to meet You!

Well Hello Dolly! That's me! I'm a really sweet 9 year old dachshund who needs some TLC, but I’m well worth it. I'm 18.4lbs. Because doxies are master beggers and obviously I'm no exception, but for my health I need to lose some weight. Also I have a skin condition that the shelter has begun treating. I'm taking some medicine and getting some medicated baths and I look better already. My new owner will need to followup with their vet so I can continue to get better. Please don't pass me by because I'm a "fixer upper". I'm a people dog who would love to be with someone who is home most of the time so I can snuggle and get loved. She was born on Monday, March 20, 2006.

"BATMAN" darling big earred chi mix

ADOPTED!
Mar 29, 2015

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 566662

Ta Da! My name is Batman - because of my ears, but my super power would be holding down someone's lap in my new home! I'm about 6 years old and weigh a bout 7.2lbs. The shelter recommends kids 8 & up because I'm a little nervous and younger kids would be too scary or me. My adopter should be patient, and give me space to build a trusting relationship with anyone in my new family. I have been very interested in chasing rabbits so no cats or other small animals in my home is also recommended. If you are looking for a reading or tv buddy, I might just fit the bill!

id # 566587

Hey there, I'm Scooby - not to be confused with Scooby Doo in case you're hoping for a dog who can talk. I'm a dachshund/terrier mix about 3 years old and at 9lbs. I'm slightly smaller than the other Scooby too. I'm friendly, I like treats and sitting in laps. My adopters should have no children under 6, be active, ready to provide me with plenty of mental stimulation and use positive training methods to help me become a well adjusted member of your family! I will need some regular flea control to bring my coat up to snuff and I'm gonna be a cutie. Do we sound like a match? Come check me out!
 


 

 
 
 

"MISTY" lovable, shy and a bit scared -young Lab mix

Please don't adopt Misty just because she is a "Lab mix"?  You'll be disappointed if you expect an easy going Lab who takes everything in stride, and Misty won't find a good match for your home.
Misty is lovely, and a gentle dog.....but worries sometimes about new things - we want to set her up for success with someone who appreciates her sensitivities!    She is a sweetie and will be a great companion.

I am a soft-hearted dog looking for a patient and loving home. At just over 50 pounds, I am nicely sized and still considered young at 2 years old. My ideal home will provide daily exercise and ongoing reward based training to help build my confidence with strangers and fear reactivity toward dogs. My adopter should have no young children, no other dogs or a respectful adult dog savvy dog, and the time and money to dedicate to training. Please ask about me today!







 
 oh no,  what was that weird noise you made? It scared me!!
 
 
but I recover with sweet talk

here's my Shelter weblink

"I wish I were an Oscar..." Wait! I am an Oscar, just not the famous kind! I am the Oscar that is from working stock, the one who loves the outdoors and exercise. I'm 7 years old, but I have plenty of pep. I have been taught leash skills, "come", "sit", and maybe more. A family with older children would be great - I might bowl over little ones with my enthusiasm. I hope you'll come by for a visit and you will agree that I am the best Oscar ever!

thank you Clackamas Co Dog Services for Oscar's photos!

"ABBY" young and cute too! Shibu Inu/terrier mix - in foster home


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 566352

Abby is currently in foster care. If you are interested in Abby, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet her :) Abby is a 2 year old, 18lb tan and cream spayed female Shiba Inu/Terrier mix who is good with cats and other dogs. She is timid so she will need calm, positive reinforcement throughout her life, so that she is the happy, confident dog she can be :) She would love to be adopted into a home with another dog to be friends with. She should go to a home with kids 8 and up or no kids, since she is shy. She is 90% housetrained, when she is let out frequently, and is working on getting that number up to 100% in her foster home :) She doesn't bark much and loves to have her tummy rubbed. Ask about Abby today!

He loves to play fetch with soft toys and hardly ever barks. He is scared of men, so he would do best in a home with no men. Ask about Figaro today!

"RILEY" check out my new look wow!!


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 565946

Hello, I'm Riley. I'm pretty sure you would never guess from seeing me that I am 12 years old. I'm an athletic terrier mix. Being a whirling dervish keeps me a svelte 19lbs. I need a home to chill out but I still want regular exercise. You should see me jump! Under all the excess fur, I'm a handsome gent and will require regular grooming to stay that way. The shelter recommends kids 12 & up to help Riley because younger kids might be too much for him or visa versa.

id # 564117

James is a smart, big-hearted young dog, who aims to please. He's a people-oriented dog and will make you a great companion. He is currently in foster care, where he is doing well with his trainer. If you are interested in him, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet him :) James has great big eyes and ears. He will play with you, then curl up beside you when you're ready for a snooze. He knows his basic commands, is crate trained, house trained, and enjoys playing with his toys. James especially loves sun-baths, bouncing balls, and walks with his friends. He would like a home without other animals or small children. He can be reactive towards strange dogs, so he shouldn't go on off-leash hikes or to dog parks, but he would love to go on daily walks or runs with his person.. This is one smart, loving young dog. Ask about James today!

"LUCKY" - Lhasa mix wants cuddle time and a quiet home


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

id # 466217

Hi my name is Lucky so you know what you have to do. That’s right please enquire about me so my lucky days can start again. I am an older gent at around 10 years and weigh in at 19 lbs. I would do best in a quiet home with respectful children at least 10 years or older with no other dogs. I need regular spa days, a superior diet and some follow up vet care to get back in the groove.
I like some good lap cuddle time and a fenced yard is a plus for me. Won't you ask about me today?
