Bacchus's Story...
Hi my name is Bacchus, like ba-kus. I have been through a lot in my short 2 years of life. Nobody knows for sure what I am, probably some kind of a Pit Bull mix, maybe a Chow mix or a Cattle dog or an Akita- who knows! My original owner was a street person who didn’t treat me very well, and he left me all alone in a park, so a nice family took me in and cared for me. It was great, I had a teenage boy to play with, a warm house to live in, proper food and they even trained me to be a good house pet. One day they took me to play at the park and a big mean dog attacked me- now I have a big scar on my head that makes me look a little scary. I am not though, I am just a little unsure of strangers. What can you expect- I have been through a lot. So, to continue with my story, that wonderful family had to move and they where forced to give me to a shelter in California. Because it takes me a little while to learn to trust people that shelter wasn’t willing to give me the time I needed and planned to put me to sleep (boy that doesn’t sound nice!) Once again a wonderful man knew I was a good boy and took me on a long car ride all the way to Portland just so I could come here and be safe. Now I am just waiting for the wonderful person who will adopt me and be my new best friend. Are you patient? Do you think you can handle a buddy with a little baggage? Boy I hope so! 2 years old- 55 lbs

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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