Rita's Story...
Hola, Cómo estás? Mi nombre es Rita! Yep, you guessed it…. Spanish is my native language, and I just made a long and exciting trip all the way from Mexico in hopes finding a new home and a new life in here in Oregon! You know what Rita means? It means pearl…which is pretty accurate…because I am a total gem. You know, the word Pearl has become a metaphor for something very rare, fine, admirable, and valuable.Yep, I’m just that special. So very soft and sweet. I’ve been through a lot as you can guess, so I’ll need a little time to adjust to my new life and my new home but you best believe I’m loyal, affectionate, eager to please and I get along great with just about everyone and everything I meet. So what do you say, can you help make this pretty lil Pearl’s 2000 mile trip worthwhile? 5 years old-35lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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