Kona's Story...
The sun, the surf, the cool island breeze; I can almost taste the coconut water. I know I’m an Australian shepherd and all, but how about you and me blow this stump and go for a vacay on the Big Island? Well, a fella can dream, can’t he? Speaking of dreams, it would be absolutely dreamy if you wanted to be Ku’u Lei (my beloved). Come on, let’s make that a reality! I have so much love to give, and I want to share it with just the right family. I am pretty easy to love… I am housetrained and crate trained. I know words like sit, stay, and come. And I want to learn more if you are willing to teach me! I could learn to share a little better; that’s a place we can start! A low-traffic home without children will be an ideal environment for me to practice in. I did well meeting the cats today, and I think with some time to acclimate, we could get along just fine. I also do well with all kinds of dogs and wouldn’t mind sharing a home with other fur pals, but I’m not ready to share my food bowl. I just know I can be the dog of someone’ s dreams, Ma’ane’i no ke aloha! 4 years old-37lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, reduced-cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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