Barney's Info...

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

Barney's Story...
I’ll love you, you’ll love me, we’ll be a happy forever family, with lots of tail wags, and wet kisses from me to you, won’t you say you’ll adopt me, too! That last part is the important part—it is kinda the whole “getting the ball in motion” to the rest of the song. Can we just have sing-a-longs and dance parties? Go on magical playground adventures? Discover how to express our emotions to each other and hug out our differences? I sure hope so, that would be the best ever. We can bring everyone in the neighborhood along ‘cause I love making friends! Children of all ages, people of all kinds, dogs of all backgrounds, and cats of any color; anyone is welcome on my magical journey as long as they are up for a good time!! I like to keep my crate as clean as possible–that way I can just jump into bed and head off to dreamland. While I slumber through the night I think of all the wonderful things that I am going to do with my new family, and when I wake in the morning I feel happy and hopeful for the day. Let’s not waste another day—we have adventures and games to play! 1 year old-45lbs. My adoption fee is $220 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

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