Ramona's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Ramona's Story...
With great regret, we are putting our dog, Ramona, up for adoption to a
well suited home only.

We believe she is a Kelpie mix. We adopted her from the humane
society last summer as a puppy. (OHS said she was a lab, but she is
definitely a smaller breed, and certainly a herding breed, most closely
resembling a Kelpie).

Ramona is a medium sized dog and weighs about 40 lbs.

She is extremely smart and learns new tricks quickly.

She is now about a year and a half old and full of energy. She is looking
for a home where she can work, run and play all day. She would do best in a
home with no small children as her instinct is to herd and she may jump and
nip at times. We have had Ramona instinct tested by a herder in Estacada who
said she has the herding instinct, but needs a little bit of work because
she is a dominate female and at this time, works for herself.

She would also be great as an agility dog or possibly even a search and
rescue dog.

Ramona has been through puppy obedience training and is fully crate and
house trained. She would love to be your energetic puppy during the day and
relax on your lap in the evening. She is a very loving, intuitive puppy.
She will need your full attention and daily training to be a perfect fit in
your family.

She learns quickly and can sit, lay down, wait and is eager to learn more.

Adoption fee of $100 will be donated to Family Dogs New Life Shelter and
includes a crate, bed, leash, and a starter bag of her food (she is on a
diet of California Natural dog food).
She is up to date on all vaccines and she is spayed. She has had no health
problems, only routine check ups at the vet. Her complete vet record will
also be provided.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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