Courtney's Story...
Well hello, my name is Courtney.I am a beautiful and ambitious girl who has the brains to back that up. I’m sort of a girl on the go… as in go over a fence pretty quickly if you are on the other side! It’s going to take a tall fence and secure yard to keep me in. I am a girl that is going to want to be with you and because of this I will do best in an environment where I’m not left unattended. I am working on my crate training and getting better everyday.I am here because another shelter didn’t have room for me and they felt I would do better in an environment where I could play and have fun. I pretended I was shy there, but I’m not feeling so shy anymore!I am very good natured and extremely loveable, I just need to be treated like the puppy I am and perhaps reigned in a bit. I will flourish with a patient yet firm new owner or family who has time to make me into the perfect girl I am so close to becoming (I know aren’t I gorgeous!)1 year old-50lbs. My adoption fee is $150.00 and includes adoption supplies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Courtney, 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.
