Phatty's Story...
OK, OK, don’t laugh at my weight! I’m a Bulldog mix…it’s not my fault! OK, well maybe I sneak an extra treat here and there when I’m watching Golden Girls re-runs on the T.V…still, don’t laugh! I’m a super fabulous family pet…in fact, my owners didn’t want to give me up--they had too for reasons that are just too sad to disclose. I’m housebroken and super smart. I know a ton of commands, and believe it or not, I love to fetch. I also lived with, and loved small children…toddlers actually! I’m gentle, loving, fun, and mellow too…and I think I could make the perfect family pet fort you. I forgot to mention that I’m great with other dogs, and that I was the lobby dog who greeted everyone in my previous shelter home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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