Big Dog (foster)'s Story...
Hi! My name’s Big Dog and I’m just that – a big, mellow, lovable guy! I’ve been told I’m very good on my leash and I have nice manners meeting other four-leggers on the trail. I like my walks and meeting new dogs, but I LOVE hanging around with my favorite people and getting lots of head scratches on my big ol’ head! I’m a bit of a “flopper”: under tables, in the kitchen, wherever my people are at. I’m currently living with two other fairly small dogs and we get along just fine, but my favorite thing is definitely my foster mom and her friends! They are always impressed and proud of me for how patient I am with the neighborhood kids. I have some skills too. I already know how to “sit,” am working on “shake” and I’m good at riding in the car. I'm lucky enough to have gone on some road trips! Oh yeah, and I’ve totally got the house-training thing down. I even come with some cute nicknames: Sweet Angel Baby, The Biggest Baby, Big Bobs, BaBa, Bubs, and Big Guy. Ok, so who’s ready to snuggle with a Big Dog?! Cause I’m ready to find my forever home and snuggle with you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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