Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Dear Forever Person/Persons, I know you've been looking for me, and I've been looking for you!! I've got my bag packed and I'm ready to come home! I even put on a fancy good luck tie just hoping it might help us find each other :) . I'm Jerry a healthy short-hair Chi mix! I love to sleep under the covers with you, and love taking walks! I require a special diet but goodness knows, I love to eat! I currently live with a bunny and we both like carrots! I am also good with dogs and cats. I weigh about 12 lbs, and best guess is that I'm around 10-12 years old - don't let my age make you question me though - I've got plenty of spunk and years left - you'll see! Even though I'm so excited to meet you, come home, and love you, I just ask for a little patience - moving from my foster to forever home could just take me a minute to get used to. I'm ready and excited to meet you, forever person! I love you already! See you soon!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Bearded Collie / Tibetan Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Hello! Meet Shaggy! He's a 6 years old, 47 pounds, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and I think I'm a Bearded Collie/Wheaten Terrier/ Tibetan Terrier mix of sorts. Shaggy does well at daycare and boarding, sleeps peacefully in his crate, walks easily on leash with out pulling- no harness requi red. He is food motivated and doesn't react towards cats. He is seeking a human companion that has no kids (or older dog friendly children over age 10-12), no other dogs, and is willing to take it slow with him. He would love to eat and sleep in his crate, and have clear rules in the house like no snuggling on the furniture or no special treats outside of the crate that could cause him to become protective. Shaggy would love to continue his training, as he thrives on the stimulation it brings him, and he loves the work and rewards! He currently lives at Club K-9. Adoption fee of $150. Underdog is working with Club K9 in finding Shaggy his forever home so you will be hearing from Club K9 when you put your application in!

      Posted Breed: Giant Schnauzer / Mixed. Meet Barnaby! Barnaby is a gentle Giant Schnauzer who was very sick at the shelter and was on his last day. He had pneumonia, eye infections, skin lesions and was very skinny. We couldn't let him die. With the help of his caring fosters, a generous donor, and good vet care in Cali, he is here in Portland and is ready to be adopted! Barnaby is 75 pounds and approx 7 years old, he is house trained, walks great on leash, is gentle with other dogs and loves his people! Barnaby does have limited sight due to the neglect he has had in his past. He will need continued eye drops for dry eye daily. His sight hasn't slowed him down at his foster home, he is a gentle giant for sure. We think Barnaby would do best in a home with no small children due to his sight and his love of treats! As Barnaby says "doesn't every 2 legger have a treat for me? I think so!" If you are looking for a big dog, non shedding mellow fellow who is a gorgeous sweetheart, Barnaby is your man!

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. Hello: Joni here.....thought I should update my bio since I've now been with my foster family for over three (3) months! I am a small spayed girl, about 10 lbs., with a smooth black coat, and a white patch on my chest. The vet thinks I am 4-5 years old. I am a mix, maybe dachshund/chi? I'm not sure, but I look kinda like a doxie on stilts! My foster family has 4 other dogs, and I have bonded with them beautifully. I have also never had a potty accident in the house, I know to go outside to do my business! I must go to a home with other dogs! Although I do beautifully with other dogs, I am extremely people shy. I am starting to learn to trust humans more, but I am definitely a work in progress. I love to be outdoors, and run and chase squirrels and birds.............for that reason I must go to a home with a securely fenced backyard. Because I am so people shy, a home with small kids is not a good choice for me. I also need to go to a home where my people have plenty of time to work on my fear, so folks that are gone for long work day hours would not be a good match for me. I hope you would like to meet me!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. I am an adorable 2yr old & 15 lb. bundle of love that is looking for the right home for me to join. I have a few quirks, but my foster parents say it makes me more special. I have overheard them saying too that I have a gentle spirit and very loving to humans. What are humans? I'm best known for my snuggles. Put me in a position and let's relax. I won't even move around. If I am awake I love bones, and going outside is so interesting. I like to sniff around, but if I see you relaxing. I will probably come join you. I am potty trained and kennel trained as well. I tend to bark if people come to the house. Once I meet them I will calm down and treat them with love. I do have a few quirks as mentioned. First, I am really not a fan of cats. I mean, they don't even bark! Second, I do get along with other dogs once we hang out. I have a little sister right now and we play and chase each other. I think I would do better by myself or with a dogs bigger than me though. Third, I have a little issue that the doctor says I bobble my head at times. They say it's just the way I am and I may outgrow it, or it may just be me. My foster parents think it's cute and they can tell what I am up to by watching me. Other than that I am really ready to meet you. The house I am in right now has five other dogs and two cats. I am ready for a vacation, but if I can get along with this pack. I will definitely get along in any loving home. One more thing... My foster parents say all the dogs always beg for their food. I really don't though. I usually lay around and wait for you to be done and hope I get a snuggle. Please consider me. I came up from CA and the love I have for life. I want to spread that into your heart and be a part of the family that brings joy and laughter. Please consider as I really desire a loving owner.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Whippet / Mixed (medium coat). Stevie here. I am a Schnauzer/ Whippet mix boy around 3 Yrs. Old and 22 pounds. I have long legs and a svelte body and that's why my foster thinks I've got whippet in me! I sure was a mess at the shelter, I was super skinny, I had demox mange (non contagious) and was losing my beautiful coat, I had an ear infection and an eye infection too. Everyone walked by my cage and didn't give me a second look. To top it off I was really scared too. I didn't stand much of chance of being adopted. Then Underdog came to save me! Now I'm in Portland in a loving foster home. I'm healthy and happy now! I'm learning to trust people, and I within just a few weeks, I'm doing so great! I'm really a funny, loving boy and I just love to play with my foster mama. I love to snuggle and I have a great appetite and I'm treat motivated for sure! I've learned basic commands, and I'm a champ walking on a leash and I'm completely non reactive to other dogs or people I see, plus! I'm potty trained as long as you keep me on a good schedule. I sleep really well in my crate and I don't make a sound at night. I'd do best in a home without small kids. I'm okay with dogs as long as they aren't too high energy, and I met a cat and I sure don't know what they are but I know I'd be okay with them once I understood them. If they run - right now I want to chase them, but if they are sitting quiet I get bored and walk away. I'm working on some separation anxiety now, so if you are gone long days, right now, I wouldn't do well with that lifestyle. Everyday I get more confident and I can be left for longer periods of time, but I'm still not too sure if you will return, so I'm working on it. I do know I'm going to make someone a very loyal and loving companion. Is it you? Stevie's Adoption fee is $380 We offer a 10% discount for seniors, veterans and students.
