  • Australian Shepherd-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix Dog For Adoption in Portland, OR, USA

    Herdy Herber...

    Breed: Australian Shepherd-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Corgi / Mixed (medium coat). We believe Herdy Herbert is a Mini Australian Shepherd mix, possibly Cattle Dog, Corgi or Border Collie - but ALL herding dog. He is NOT a pet dog, he is a working dog that requires a real job. He will suffer in a pet home. Just ball retrieving is not enough for this guy. Herdy Herbert is about 20lbs, a small but mighty pup indeed. He wants to engage, be a part of whatever is going on. He loves other dogs, but if poorly matched or his energy (both mental and physical) are not addressed, he can be a pushy, bully that will engage in undesirable behavior. However, when his needs are met, he is an amazing dog that is super smart, eager to learn and will give you what you want and more. He has been around well mannered children and a cat that takes no sh%*t, as well as a variety of dogs. He enjoys all but the cat, which he will chase if running but we do not think he is a real threat to a cat, more curious. He would do well as an actual herding dog, and we expect he can work with just about any critter; or an agility dog; or a serious trick dog (like on America's Got Talent this past season!); even flyball... but he must have a regular job to meet his needs. If you have a farm or do dog sports this guy may be for you. He is warm, funny, affectionate and has basic manners and crate training. He enjoys food puzzles, a lot. He would be a whiz at nose work. From his Foster Home: Herbert has been staying with me for 4-5 weeks now. I brought him home along with another dog to evaluate to see which one would be a fit for a family member who was looking for a dog. It very quickly became clear that Herbert is a dog who needs a job. The first skills I worked with him on were crate training and basic house manners. He crates very well utilizing treat balls and puzzles to distract him and then he will lay down and rest quietly. He has been crated at night, during the day when I'm at work and periodically throughout the day when we are home to allow him time to relax without children and the general chaos that comes with a household of two adults, two young children, three big dogs and one cat. He is happiest when he feels he has a job rather that be bringing me all the socks and shoes he can find or searching out treats that have been hidden throughout a room. He has shown himself to learn very quickly and is also food motivated. He wants to please his people even if they are young children who give unclear directions. He has shown to have a relatively reliable recall even when engaged in chasing a cat through a field. As far as cats go, due to living with my 19lb dog like cat he has learned to have a healthy respect for them however if they run he will give chase. I do not feel there is intent to harm and he is easily called off. When he has been fearful/cautious his general response is to explore what has startled him. He will bark to alert but is not a nuisance barker. He stops barking either when assured that the people have it or if none of the other dogs are alarmed. In the absence of his people or other dogs he will investigate. In the home he's happy to hang out on the couch as long as his mental and physical needs are met. He likes to be with his people but in general is not underfoot. If you get up he will follow. Herbert quickly learned the difference between dog toys and children toys and utilizes the various antlers and synthetic bones around the house. He has been closely supervised with a toddler and a preschool aged child. I would not recommend placement with children younger than preschool aged due to his desire to lick faces and his overall intensity. He has shown himself to need to be around dogs that will keep his tendency to become pushy in check. He takes a correction from another dog well but responds to freezes or passive indications to not wanting to interact by increasing his intensity. (Barks, pokes, air snaps) He is easy to redirect from the behavior to a different activity. If my life looked different I would be keeping him for myself because of his drive, willingness and overall temperament. In my opinion he is the perfect blend of lap dog and independent dog. Any issues that have presented have been easily managed through training, routine, and engaging his mind. I feel he could do anything that his person or people were excited about be that agility, entertainment , cadaver dog, herding or other activities that are mentally and physically engaging.

    Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    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! Every Underdog has been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, flea/tick treated, de-wormed, and received rabies, bordetella and distemper/parvo vaccines.

    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!

    Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    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.

    Breed: Miniature Schnauzer-Whippet Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    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.

    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!
