Minerva's Story...
There is something very personal that I would like to share with you. You see, this is a big step for me since I am so nervous and unsure of myself, but I have always been told that it is best to be honest. So here we go... I have a condition, and it has to do with my heart. My heart is all filled with something called love, and I have no one to share it with. To be fully honest, I have no idea how to share it. The only cure is finding a wonderful family to call my own. They tell me it shouldn’t be difficult—finding a cure that is—since I am such a wonderful lady. I am young and beautiful and just full of potential. I may be a bit scared right now, but I am sweet as can be, very smart, and crate trained already. I will need a lot of confidence building, especially when it comes to the leash… I am just terrified of walking on leash...oh and the camera, I’m pretty scared of the camera, too... Doctor’s orders are for a nice loving family with gentle children 6+. Other pets would be OK as well. Plenty of TLC and lots of patience… What do you say? Can you help cure this condition they call Lonely Heart? 1 year old-36lbs. My adoption fee is $220 and includes spay, microchip & registration, 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

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