Merlin (foster)'s Story...
Merlin is my name and magic is my game. I will magically transform your life into one that is full of rainbows and unicorns. Okay, I can’t do that but my foster mom says I am pretty awesome. I am a magical cuddler and love to spoon. I’m a pocket pittie at 2 years old and 45 lbs. I LOVE dogs of all size and playing with them is the best thing ever. My foster mom says I have mad appropriate play skills. People are pretty awesome in my book as well. I met the resident cat and she’s okay, even though she’s not a dog. I’m learning that I shouldn’t put my paws on the counter but that’s where all the good stuff is…. I can’t say my crate is a magical place but I’ll go in a let you know it’s not my favorite place but will settle down quickly. I think car rides are magical because they take me to go see my other doggie friends. I know sit and learning to walk on a leash. My ideal home is where I can play with another dog, go on walks and car rides and snuggle.
So, if you want some of this magic, send an email to

My adoption fee is $180 and includes; microchip, neuter, 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

Merlin (foster), 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.
