My name is Othello aka “Theo” and I am a two year old spaniel/border collie mix. I found myself in a bad situation in Tennessee and ended up in the shelter. I waited patiently for my owner to come and get me….but he never did. The vet says that I may have been by a car at some point because the cold weather seems to bother my back leg, but it doesn't keep me from running and playing. I was almost out of time when this nice lady came by and we made a run for it. I am settling in nicely at my foster mom’s house. She said I am such a good dog, she wishes she could keep me. I get along great with my furry brothers and sisters. I want to please everyone. I have been kid-tested with (who I love) and I just laid down and rolled over wanting a belly rub. When I come in the house I am so good, I like to be petted and I just lay on the floor and stay out of the way. I haven’t had any accidents in the house and I am pretty sure I know to go outside. I really love my foster home, but I want a home I can call my own. My foster mom says that I am one of the sweetest babies that she has every fostered. Will I be a good fit for your family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Othello, a Portland Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Border Collie for sale in Portland, or seeking a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Border Collie 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 Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Border Collie breeders who help with Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
