Cal's Info...

Cal's Story...
Sure, I’d love to be your new pal, but can we take things a little slow? I promise I wanna be your best friend, but I tend to choose my company well. Sure, I may be a little ruff around the edges. Get it? Ruff around the edges! I prefer the term “unconditioned.” Don’t worry, I got plenty of smarts to learn new tricks if someone were so inclined to teach me. I get amped pretty quick if I think a stranger might be a threat, so I could stand to learn how to harness my energy and express my uneasiness in more appropriate ways. So it’s important I find a family without young children—I prefer to surround myself with pals who know how to take things slow and easy. I get along with other dogs well enough and am having a blast with all my pack mates here at the shelter—just don’t ask me to befriend no pesky felines! I am learning this crate training thing, and I’ve sure gotten the hang of it. I’m also already housetrained, I love to play fetch, and I ride well in the car. So if you’re looking for a new pal to join your small circle of friends, pick Cal and you’ll have a best pal for life! 3 years old-28lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, 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

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