Missy's Story...
Marvelous Momma Missy is the name, or Missy for short. Please send all adoption inquiries to Actually, don’t do that. I had to quit emailing because it’s so darn hard to type with furry paws. Maybe I’ll invent the doggie computer keyboard once I get outta here! I'm just about smart enough to do it. Have you heard my story yet? Or been following my Mittens on the Family Dog’s Dog Blog? See, I’ve been here for a while. I was found preggers and gave birth to 5 beautiful pups. They were raised here at the shelter with me. Now that I am all done taking care of them I am oh so ready ready for a home of my own. And don’t worry, I’ve been all fixed up, no more surprise pregnancies for this gal! I’m a very affectionate young lady, fun, active and smart as a whip too. I haven’t had a ton of training yet, but I’m ready. I’m the submissive type, so I can be a bit of shy of strange males. I love all the guys here at the shelter, and I’ve warmed up to other men too, it just takes me a bit…I think that all I’ll need is for you to continue my socialization. I’m fantastic with other dogs, and I can even be around cats…I do like to occasionally chase them for fun though! Let’s say kids 6 and up…I really don’t enjoy the energy of little ones…besides, I just got through raising 5 of my own…It’s my turn to be in the limelight! 1 ½ years old-35lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes; microchip, spay, 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

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