Peyton's Story...
How cute am I?! I'm kind of a special needs little guy that could really use your love and patience. I came from New Orleans where I was found abandoned. The nice people at Animal Rescue New Orleans think I may have been kept in a crate that was too small for me due to my legs being a bit funny & I am quite small, but that doesn't stop me from running & playing! I love people & dogs & my new life! Family Dogs was nice enough to take me in & place me in a loving foster home. I've been learning commands & am crate-trained. I love to snuggle or just follow my people around everywhere. I have to admit, I may have some challenges, but I certainly try hard. All I want to do is please people! I will need someone that is patient and understands that I have been through a great deal. Now though I have a second chance at a great life! If possible I'd love to go home with another dog. Since I'm not actually at the shelter, please contact my foster mom Heidi at or 503-757-5406 & she'd be happy to introduce us! My adoption fee is $200 and includes; current shots, neuter, microchip, 5 week Training Class, free veterinary exam (SE Portland/Milwaukie area),1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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