Nala's Story...
Nala, nala, bo-bala. Begging for banana fana fo-fala treat treats treats! Fee-fi-always-an-extravaganza, Nala! OK, I took a few liberties with the tune…so what? That’s the kind of gal I am. I take what I got and I make the best outta it. Like this situation…being in a shelter…so what? I don’t mind! I’m awesome, so I’ll find a home quick. I’m a super-smart and super-active pup who has so much potential that it’s bursting out of every seam! I may be a mutt, but I’m a Cattle Dog through and through. So maybe a family with older children 10+ where I can get all the socialization, enrichment, and training I need will be the key to a successful relationship. Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention that I’m awesome with other dogs, love to torment cats a little too much, and am even crate trained and housebroken! Maybe we can continue my training and work out any little kinks I may have? Like I said, I have so much potential, and the sky is the limit to what I can learn. Let’s be buddies—Nala bala bo begging for a family…Nala! 2 years old-44lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip & registration, spay, 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

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