Tegan's Story...
Remember this day, for it will be the day that our relationship first Te-gan. Sorry, was that dorky? I am really bad about breaking the ice. In fact, it takes a lot of courage for me to get to know new people. I hope it's not an issue. I am sort of a nervous Nelly. But my name’s Tegan, not Nelly. Who is Nelly? And why is she so nervous anyway? Or do they mean multi-platinum-Grammy-award-winning recording artist Nelly? Cos that doesn't really make a lot of sense either. He seems like a very confident person. What was I talking about? Oh! Me! Right, I am Tegan! I have never recorded an album or won a Grammy. But I am crate trained very well, and I walk on a leash fantastically. I don't think they give out Grammys for that, though. Speaking of Grammys, what’s with that Kanye guy? Sorry! I am getting off track again. Hi! I'm Tegan! I love gentle respectful kids 5+, I don't mind living with cats (they freak me out and I don't want anything to do with them), and I get along with other polite dogs very well. As long as you give me time to become comfortable with new situations and people, I do wonderfully. Oh! And treats keep me more focused and attentive than I have been in this description. Maybe I am hungry, maybe that's why I am being such a space cadet today. Gosh! It's like “Earth to Tegan, Hello!” Right? And I'm all “Houston, we have a problem.” OK, sorry! I promise I will give you a better impression when you meet me in person! Just ask for me—Tegan! 2 years old-47lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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