Sofie's Story...
I love to be the bearer of good news, ‘cause I think you just found the newest member of your family! It would be the wisest decision, I would say, since Sofie means wisdom and all. Now look at you all pole positioning for love! I do declare I will not offer my heart to just any family that happens to walk on by; they must be a family of long-term-loving snuggle masters! Oh, and they should dislike cats as much as I do, and like to balance active journeys with rebooting canoodling. These are just some of things I see me and my dream family having in common. As for me, I have the playful disposition needed to engage children but sometimes I can be a bit too playful and need a child who is sturdy and able to keep up with me, lets say 7+ is okay for the kiddos I want to hang out with. I get along quite amicably with the other dogs in my play group, as well as coming with a little bit of ingrained wisdom myself. Things like crate training are a breeze, and with some positive reinforcement training you will have the cattle dog in me passing the SAT! Get out your camera, because it's time to stop and take a Sofie!

1 ½ years-38 lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: microchip, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sofie, a Portland Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu for sale in Portland, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Portland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
