Russell's Info...

Russell's Story...
Elvis, Snake Plissken, R.J. MacReady, Jack Burton, Captain Ron, Wyatt Earp, Col. Jack O'Neil, Stuntman Mike. I may have some big shoes to fill if I want to be a great actor like my idol Kurt Russell. But as long as I have the starring role in your family's happiness, I don't care if I ever win an Oscar. I am classically house trained and know the basics when it comes to commands. I wanted to attend Julliard for acting but had to settle for watching TV when I could because of my modest upbringing. I would love to work in community theater for children 10+. They have just wonderful imaginations and are truly rulers of improv. Sometimes it's like “Who's teaching who here!?” you know? I get along great with other dogs and cats. In this business you never know who you are going to be working with, and you always have to have an open mind. I have used my crate training as time to go over my scripts or role play. Like last night I was pretending to be a warden in a state prison that got locked in with the other inmates and discovered a side of humanity he had never known. I think I might try to write a screenplay for that one. I can play many characters, but the only part I really want is a part in your life. 1 1/2 years old-13 lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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