Marlin's Story...
Australian Cattle Dog + Pit Bull Terrier + German Shepherd + Border Collie Mix
11 weeks old
18 pounds

Can someone help me out? I am in search of my family. I’m not really looking for anything fancy, just a warm place to call home. Too be honest, I can’t really remember how I ended up here but I am ready to see where this fun journey takes my siblings and me. Are you looking for someone cute, cuddly and ready to play all day? If you are then look no further because both of our searches have come to an end. Once we find each other I am ready to start our new adventure together, learning my basic manners and making new memories each and every day. I mean could you even imagine getting to hang out this pile of puppy cuteness all day? People say there’s a million fish in the sea but can’t I please be your fish?? I promise to be your very best friend forever, so let’s stick together because I never want to have to search for my family again :)

Come in and meet me so we can get to know each other better!

11 weeks old-18lbs. My adoption fee is $280 and includes microchip & registration, neuter, 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

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