Rusty's Story...
Aw, shucks, how can I be Rusty? I'm just a pup! I am about as new as you can get, hot off the press! I don't have time to sit still and rust with everything I got going on! But I sure wouldn't mind sticking to you! You can work out my puppy quirks and ready me for a doggone good life! I am attentive and respond to training very well. You could say I am a people pleaser and playmate extraordinaire! I love sturdy kids, and I enjoy being around other dogs; cats, however, are a different story. I am not happy unless everyone else is having a good time, and cats just don’t think my style of play is fun. I am brushing up on my crate training, and it’s going great, I also have good house manners and love car rides! If you can get me unstuck from my current situation, I will have you all greased up with my love and bolted down tight! 18 months old-58lbs. My adoption fee is $200 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

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