Corky's Story...
Ohhhh life goes on, as they say…and so shall mine. I’m happy to have been rescued, but I can’t wait to get out of here and get into a new home. At only nine months old I’m a very graceful, intelligent little guy with a great personality. I have a wonderful ability to learn and I am really eager to please. I already play fetch and will reliably drop the ball at your feet every time. I can even jump and spin and pluck a tennis ball from the sky! A little more training and I would probably make a great Frisbee dog too. I am crate-trained even! I did great during the cat meet today, I look forward to meeting your children, and I enjoy meeting new pooches too. For my breed I am a pretty reserved guy, but I think I would really enjoy someone who is willing to play ball and take me places on a regular basis. I just really enjoy being active! Give a young guy a chance. 9 months old-30lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes; neuter, microchip, 5 week Training Class, free veterinary exam (Portland/Milwaukie area only) ,1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Corky, a Portland Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Portland, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog 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 breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
