Malcolm's Story...
“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Well I am a prepping myself currently for all the love I am going to have in the future! I am working on becoming a the bestest dog I can be so that whoever takes me home in the future will love me forever and never want to give me up! Gosh, I would love to find a happy home where I will lots of attention..maybe a family with some little ones to cuddle with, or some other doggies to play with (some cats to pester would be loads of fun! Well for me at least, maybe not the cats) ...a home where I can be a real part of the family. I am housebroken already, working on my crate training and doing great so long as I have a sturdy crate, learning some basic stuff like walking nicely on a leash and how to share with others. I believe these are traits that people are looking for in a family friend! Right?
So I guess I should mention the elephant in the room… why I have this satellite dish on my head. Well it’s because I just had to have my tail trimmed. Yup! Tail trimmed! My digs at the last shelter was a concrete kennel, and being the happy dude that I am I beat my lil tail silly against those concrete walls. I just couldn’t help it! I like being happy! So when I got here to FDNL there wasn't much left of the tip of my tail and it sure needed a little help healing! It may be a little shorter now, but I can still wag it with the best of em! Hows about you come in and meet me , let me show you how prepared I am for our future…I'll just be waiting here, waggin' !

QUICK UPDATE! Hey Everybody, Malcolm the magnificent here...I am all healed up, satellite dish free and ready to go home with you and yup... my little stump is still waggin!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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