Hamlet's Story...

Hamlet is around 2 yrs old with a whole lot of puppy in him, and weighs in at a very stout/muscular 22 Lbs. He is a terrier mix boy who is full of enthusiasm and affection. He bonds easily and loves to be around people. Hamlet has lots of energy. He is very devoted to his human and likes to be as close as he can get at all times, a giant cuddler and loves any opportunity to get belly rubs and hugs. Generally, he is a confident, friendly, easy-going pup with great gusto!

He is working on learning basic manners as he does not yet have much control over his impulses or awareness of his body, where it is and what it is doing. He is a fast learner and catching on quickly, but will require continued consistent training. Also, his excitement of everything can get the better of him, so will need a securely fenced yard and to be kept leashed to a halter and collar when outside of a secured area.

He gets along well with other dogs when he has had the opportunity to be properly introduced, but reacts with a lot of barking and pulling when meeting anything new. Cats in the home would be questionable and because of his strength he would be more suited to a family with older children.

Hamlet was so matted when rescued that he did have to be shaved down. His hair will grow out again though and need some continued maintenance once it does.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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