I am Carson, a handsome extremely lucky Chihuahua. My first four years were rough in California…I had a different name and a close friend named Teddy. We both loved each other and were best friends. This was a very good thing because we were often not fed and neglected. One day those people took us to a ravine and dumped us. Lucky for us we used our big voices and people heard us. I have pictures of our rescue and off we went to a shelter. Teddy got adopted right away and I was alone. I did not like the shelter and would curl in a ball. The loud noises and with my friend being gone I had no one.

Lucky for me, I ended up in a foster home sponsored by My Way Home Dog rescue. I got fed twice a day….I got petted and cuddled and loved by PEOPLE…it was the most amazing thing. I am able to eat all my food, have water, get attention and this allows my finer features to come out. I am handsome and like to be the boss. I love to cuddle and can walk on a leash. I would do better with another dog and not lots of hustle and bustle. I like laps and when you lay down I can share your pillow. I also would find the crook of your elbow a wonderful place to lie. Covers are a must because there is nothing better than being warm. I am looking for a home and people who will take care of me…I will love you back in a big way…you see I may be a Chihuahua but I have the heart of a lion!

I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250. If you would like to meet me, please email for an application or visit our website to download one! My Way Home adopts in the Portland metro area only.

About My Way Home Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteer foster families located in and around Portland, OR helping one dog at a time. Dogs are housed in homes to assess their behavior and level of training, and to develop their basic social skills. They often have exposure to other pets and people that they would not get in a shelter setting. The stresses of group living in shelters sometimes masks a dog's true personality. We want our dogs to shine and strive to make the best match possible so that the dog you take home is with you forever.

Please note, because we are volunteers housing dogs in our own homes, we are unable to assist with owner surrender situations. We suggest placing flyers at your veterinarian, local pet food stores, working with your local shelters and rescues that are able to assist with owner surrenders.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We work individually with families and dogs, setting up meet and greets by appointment after a phone interview and application review. We are a group of volunteer foster families and do not operate a facility. Our dogs are a part of a family before finding a forever home.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you have found the pet that you are interested in, please email us and we'll be back in touch with you with an application that you may fill out for the dog you are considering. If it seems like a good match, we will do a phone screening to answer any further questions you may have and look at scheduling a meet and greet.

Fees do vary and all adoption fees go directly towards the costs for medical care and general needs of our dogs. We do our best to ensure each dog is appropriately matched with each home, as such, we are not a first come first serve rescue. We strive to answer inquiries within 24 hours, but we are run entirely by volunteers. Please be patient as we work to respond to you quickly.
