Poncho's Story...
I know aren’t I just lovely? Ya I know I am a beautiful lady but don’t worry I am not snooty about it! I am very loving and loyal. It might take me a minute to warm up to someone new, but once I do there is not stopping the love I will give you. I’m just a real nice dog, as a matter of fact I am crate trained and I have had some obedience training too, I have been an inside dog before and I am very easy to train. I sure am sweet and gentle, plus I do well with other dogs and children. I just love all the attention! A lovely gal like me deserves a home of her own don’t you agree? 4 years old-extremely overweight at 65lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; current shots, spay, microchip, 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

Poncho, 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.
