Arthur's Story...
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on here, before you fall head over heels for me I must tell you a little bit about Big Man Arthur. I am an ultra cute little dude, very affectionate, loyal and protective. Let me accentuate the Protective, as I know we'd all like to pay attention to just the Cute part! I love my people and my home and myself very very much, and I feel the overwhelming need to keep these cherished things safe from strangers, and sometime I feel the need to keep them safe from people I have met once or twice before. The professionals that I have worked with in the past say that this is fear based, and between you and me, as much as I hate to admit it, I think they are right. I sure like to over exaggerate and act really really tough, but the truth is I am just insecure and unsure. So if I can find a patient, committed, experienced person to continue with my behavior modification program I think one day, I will be able to accept that I am not responsible for keeping away all the scary bad guys. And I will learn that they really are not scary bad guys at all. On the up side, I am super cute! Very smart, housebroken, crate trained, leash trained, great with other dogs- and currently single. 5 years old- 16lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; neuter, microchip, free training support, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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