    Tucker

    rescue
    Breed: Affenpinscher-Bull Terrier Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Affenpinscher / Mixed. Tucker is a little over 2 years old and sadly hasn't had much exposure to life outside of a shelter. He was a transfer in from another facility. When he first arrived at CHS he wasn't much for being handled by humans. He was very scared and very shy, it has taken him several months to settle in and now he is doing great. He is a very tolerant dog and he does well in playgroup. We don't feel that he is going to do well with small kids, as he is very rough and tumble when he plays and he has no idea that he is about 75lbs. He thinks its fun to run into you while he is playing. Tucker is going to need a patient home with lots of understanding of positive reinforcement training in order to make him feel comfortable. An only dog situation for this kid would be preferred. If you feel that you might be able to provide Tucker with what he is looking for that would be great. Please don't hesitate to contact us. CHS is very committed to our adopters getting the best possible adoption experience that they can. Due to that we ask that prior to arrival at the shelter you please call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane to make appropriate arrangements. Most of our dog adoptions are done by appointment only, as we have very limited staff and we want to be able to give ample time to our adopters. They deserve that as well as our dogs deserve it.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Breed: Affenpinscher-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Affenpinscher / Mixed. Cooper came to CHS via another shelter. He is about 2 years old and is really a sweet kid and does well with other dogs. Cooper will not do well in a home with cats as he likes to chase them a lot. Cooper will need to have an experienced dog owner and someone who is going to be willing to give him a job and keep him on his toes at all times. CHS is committed to finding the right matches for not only our pets but also our adopters. We have a unique approach to our adoption matching process. Our kennels are not open for the public to walk through, as this helps us keep our dogs as happy and comfortable as possible. Due to our commitment to being such strong allies for our pets, we ask that you please either call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane before just showing up to meet our pets. We would like to take the time to get to know our adopters so that we can make only the best matches between you and your future new family member.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Penelope

    Breed: Bullboxer Pit
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. This kid is about 1 year old and weighs in right around 50lbs. She is a very smart and active girl and will do best in a home where she is an only dog. She does ok with other dogs, but would like to be the center of attention. Penelope is not going to be that easygoing kid that you won't have to put any work into. She will require an owner who is very educated on her breed, and is also educated about positive reinforcement training. She is on her way to doing wonderfully with her obedience training, but Penelope is going to require a home that is willing to continue to work with her. We don't feel that Penelope is going to do well in a home with kids. She is going to need a home that is quiet that does not have a lot of stimulation. Please be advised that all dog adoptions are done through CHS by appointment only. Once you have an approved application online, we will schedule a time for you to come and meet the pet that you are interested in. Our adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis, we believe that our pets need to be appropriately matched with our adopters. We want our pets to be successful as well as our adopters to be successful. If there is a pet you are interested in please email us at animalwelfarecolumbiahumaneFor more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Affenpinscher / Mixed. Jack is right around 2 years old and weighs in right around 25 lbs. This guy is very sweet, however he is a little nervous when he is meeting new people. He was in a home previous with other dogs and with cats an he apparently did well with both. He is not recommended for a home with kids under the age of 12, as he needs little ones around him that can understand he does not enjoy people messing with his face. If you are interested in meeting Jack we ask that you either call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane Please do not just show up at the shelter as all our dog meet and greets are done by appointment after we have an approved application on file. We like to make sure that both our adopters and our dogs are a match. We will be very upfront and honest with you and if we feel that we don't have a match for you we will be sure to let you know or we may possibly suggest another dog.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Mutt Dog For Adoption in St Helens, OR, USA

    Pilot

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier. Pilot is a recent addition to the CHS family. Coming in around 5 months old and weighing in at about 13 lbs, this kid is no stranger to the shelter life. As a recent transplant from a high kill shelter in Texas, he is relieved to be in the Pacific Northwest and is ready to start his new forever life. Pilot will do best in a home without young kids, as he can be very mouthy with his toys and with treats. This guy has had some previous training, but now he is basically like a blank canvas and ready to be worked with and molded into an even more wonderful dog. His ideal home would be a home that is going to keep him active. If there is a dog in the home, we would highly suggest that it be a home with a strong female dog that is going to enjoy teaching him about all the right ways to act and play. We are uncertain about his manners around cats. If you are interested in meeting Pilot, we ask that you please email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane - once we have an approved application on file, we will then schedule a time for you to come in and meet the pet that you are interested in.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mastiff / Mixed. Dodge is a recent addition to the CHS family. This guy is still learning the ropes and is a little shell shocked by being at the shelter. He was an owner surrender to animal control and they asked if we might be able to help find him a home. He seems to get along well with other dogs, both male and female. We don't know how he will do with cats, as he seems to be indifferent in the shelter. He seems very happy to meet new people. We would suggest that he needs to be in a home with older kids. Our ideal home he would be to place him with a female dog that he could pal around with. This guys is a little over a year old and weighs in right around 70lbs. With that being said, he will not be a candidate to live in an apartment. It is important to us that he be in a home with access to a yard and with a family that is going to be very active with him. He enjoys spending time out and has had a little previous training. Please note that it is very important to CHS that we make the right choices for both our adopters and our pets that we have in our care. Due to that fact, the kennels at our facility are not open for public walk through. We feel it is to stressful on our dogs as well as our adopters. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs we ask that you please email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane - once we have a pre-approved application on file, we will then schedule a time for you to come in and meet the pet that you are interested in.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Waylin came into our care through Columbia County Animal Control. This little guy has not had a really easy time of it. When we got him he was pretty sick and pretty skinny. We have since gotten him healthy and feel that he is finally ready to go into a new home. This guy's going to need special food for the rest of his life, as he has a pretty sensitive tummy. He gets along great with other dogs, but we don't know how he is going to be with cats. We think he is probably going to do okay with children, but might be a little shy in the beginning. As with every adoption, we ask that you please submit an application prior to just coming to our location to meet the pets. We don't have an open kennel, as we feel very strongly that the dogs need to be as comfortable as possible in their new homes. If you are interested in adopting one of our pets we ask that you please email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane and we will email you an application. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call 503-397-4353For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Marley, and I am a beautiful spayed female. I am about 3 years old, weigh right around 30lbs, and I am a very athletic dog. Other dogs make me nervous, especially if I am on leash. I need to be in a home where I get to be an only child. I do also need to have a fenced yard, and preferably would like to live in an area that isn't too busy. I haven't ever really been around kids, and to be honest, they make me a little nervous. I also am not going to do well in a home with cats; I really like to chase them and I'm not sure what I would do if I could get one, but they really do annoy me. CHS requires that all adopters have a pre-approved application on file prior to meeting a pet (applications available on our website). Once your application is approved, we will then schedule a time for you to come and meet with the pet that you are interested in. Our kennels are not open for public walk-through, as we believe that it is too stressful on our pets. If you are interested in meeting any of our pets, please don't hesitate to call 503-397-4353. If we are closed, please leave a message and we will return your call ASAP. Also please feel free to email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane if you have any other questions.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia

    Breed: American Bulldog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Bulldog. This special little lady deserves to be loved to the moon and back. She came to the shelter via one of our shelter partners and so far in 2 years she has had a pretty tough life. She gets along with other dogs, however we would not recommend that she be placed with female dogs or little dogs. We would recommend her match be at least 45-50 lbs as she is a substantial girl and doesn't really recognize her size. It is unknown at this time how she is going to do with cats or kids. Her adopters are going to have to be understanding and come and visit her a few time prior to going home. At CHS the health and welfare of the animals that are in our care is our number one priority. We are dedicated to helping our adoptive families find that one perfect fit that will complete their family. We strongly encourage that you either please email animalwelfarecolumbiahumane or call 503-397-4353 so that we can talk to you about your needs and wants in a new family member prior to just arriving at the kennels.For more information call 503-397-4353 or email animalwelfarecolumbiahumbia
