Max's Story...
I am handsome young man named Max. A loyal, stick by you side sort of dog . A true 'mans best friend' . I am well mannered for my age, I know some basic commands and I am crate trained. I do great with other dogs and will make a good family pet- I get along with just about anyone. I am a great little size, only about 45 pounds or so. That means you can get that wonderful German Shepherd dog personality without the size. I know, I know, I sound absolutely perfect! 1 year old- 45lbs. My adoption fee is $150 and includes adoption supplies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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