Derek's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Derek's Story...
I am just a good dog. They type of dog who gives you kisses, wags his tail with all of his might, and never gets tired of hearing “good boy!” I love nature, going for jogs, wrestling with children, hanging with my dogs, and giving cats something to hiss about. I have never met a person I didn't like or a treat I wouldn't eat. I may still be young, but I think I have a good head on my shoulders, and I am looking to increase my knowledge with the right family. Since I have been here I have started to learn crate training, and I would say it is going pretty good. I get to play all day in the yard with my dog friends, and at night we swap stories about all the happiness and love we are going to share with our new families. I may be a dog, but I am not just a dog. Let me show you how truly wonderful I am then let me hear you say my favorite words: “Good boy!” 8 months old-43lbs. My adoption fee is $220 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, 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

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