Hobert's Story...
Handy Hobert here, a stick-by-your-side companion looking to lend a hand to someone in need. Are you in need of a new buddy? Would you like a hand lugging around that lonely heart of yours? Well, Handy Hobert may not have thumbs, but I promise to hold on tight to that heart of yours and never let go! I can give you a hand romping and playing with your other dog, or your cat if you’ve got one who likes to play rough. I can give you a hand with kids—just don’t expect me to be a babysitter, OK? A companion I can be, but a full-time nanny I cannot—that is a little above my skill level. I am an eager-to-please boy, though, so I can probably learn just about anything you wanna teach me. I am already crate trained, and I know how to walk on leash, but there’s just not much else I can tell you about myself since little is known about my past; so maybe there will be a few things you can give me a hand with—let’s start with a new home to call my own. 2 years old-63lbs. My adoption is $200 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

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