Pumpkin's Story...
I know how you humans love to come with cute pet names for your animals, I mean sometimes you even give them to each other! So I figure, that’s one thing I’ve got going for me…you won’t have to come up with some silly pet name, I have already got one! “There’s my cute lil Pumpkin”… “come on Pumpkin let’s go for a walk”… “oh Pumpkin, I love you so much”. See, sounds pretty great huh? I guess when I think about it, I’ve got lots of things going for me…I am sweet, social, super-duper smart, trainable, playful, athletic and gorgeous. I’m one of those dogs who is just full of potential, waiting for someone to carve me into the perfect pooch. I’ll do just fine with respectful children, ideally those who understand herding breeds. I even love to play with other dogs, just as long as they don’t mind me bossing them around from time to time but let me tell ya- I don't do so well meeting new dogs when I am on leash. Sure, I could use a bit more training, but I am already crate trained, housebroken and know how to ‘sit’ when asked. So that’s a good start, right? Can’t you hear yourself already… “There’s my lil Pumpkin, the bestest doggy in whole world”. 4 years old-45lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes; spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, free vet exam, reduced cost training class, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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