Tanner's Story...
Hi there, I’m Tanner. Here’s my story: My family went on vacation…for a month…so they decided it’s be best to re-home me. Meditate on that for a moment… So, I gotta say, I’m perfectly happy to be here looking for a loving family that will keep me forever, vacation or not. I’m 5 years old, housebroken, affectionate and good with other dogs and children 8+. I am on the shy side with new people though, so don’t expect me to jump right in your lap. I'll need you to be loving and patient until I adjust and learn to trust that everything is ok. I would also like someone to take me on a daily walk. I haven’t been on a whole lot of walks, which is why I’m on the tubby side. In fact, I could use a little more leash training, it could be a bonding experience for us and a way for me to lose a few pounds too! 5 years old-30lbs. 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

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