Cosmo's Story...
I’m Cosmo—an outta-this-world dude looking for a patient family, plenty of tennis balls, and a soft bed to sleep in at night. I am just a boy at heart—I may be 6, but there is still a lot of puppy left in me! I am wonderfully crate trained and know a couple basic commands, but I’m still learning all there is to know about this great big world. I really am eager to love and I enjoy my people but new folks scare me sometimes so slow introductions are best. Sometimes I play way too rough, and use my mouth when I probably shouldn't so I’ll need a family with sturdy & respectful children 10 +! I love other doggies and do enjoy a good chase with kitty cats, too. I would love very much to go home with a nice family who will take the time to really love me, play with me, and teach me all I need to know. Is that too much to ask? Boy, I hope not—there’s a whole universe of possibilities, and I just can’t wait to explore them with you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cosmo, 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.
