Jones's Story...
Heya! I’m a smart, attentive, affectionate guy named Jones. Ok, so I’m a little overwhelmed right now, a bit nervous ya know… This all a lot for me to take in! I mean I had a great owner and a great home for 3 years, then, well, my loving owner died. I’m really heartbroken, that life was all I’ve known… Since then I have just been bounced around from place to place, even found myself a new home in Spokane, but they had a young child, which was so much fun! But I played too rough so back to the shelter I went. I guess that was my que to head on down to FDNL for my second chance. I’m adjusting really well, considering what I’ve been through, and I know I’ll adapt perfectly to a new life with a little patience. I guess it’s just a matter of me finding my right fit. No cats for me, and I better find a family with children over 12 this time around. I know some commands, I’m housebroken, and ready for your love. Are you ready for mine? 3 years old- 53lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; neuter, 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

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