Portia's Story...
No need to try and impress me with fancy stuff, I don’t need designer dog beds or diamond collars; that’s just not the kind of girl I am. I care more about personal connections than showboating. I mean, I lost an eye and don't even miss it one bit! It’s funny how something as abstract as love can be so much more valuable than tangible possessions. That is the kind of family I am looking for: one that tries to impress each other with actions of the heart. Good deeds are what get you a ticket to paradise, and I want to make sure I have a first-class ticket! I will need extra TLC since I can be a little timid with new people. A good confidence boost is what I need! I am crate trained, and with gentle guidance I can learn whatever you want to teach me. First on the list should be learning to share, since I have shown that I’m not always willing to give up my goodies. I do get along with respectful kids 8+, but if we're being honest I'd prefer to be the only furry four-legged kid in your life. Now don't you think I'm pretty impressive!?
2 years old-75lbs. 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

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