Sherlock (foster)'s Story...
My name is Sherlock, probably because I’m very curious. I’m a transplant to the NW, where I’m finding I love to explore all that is around here! I love to go running, hiking and swimming. I also love to kick back and cuddle with my people. I’m working on many new tricks and refining my manners. My foster family says I’m a quick learner, I think I’m just motivated to do anything for special treats. Did I mention I love to cuddle? I’m very affectionate and love to spend time with my foster sister and people. I get along great with kids, too!! I do love toys, too. My favorites so far are balls, tug ‘o’war ropes, kongs and bones, but above everything else, my favorite thing other than cuddling, is going for car rides!! If you are active and have time to cuddle with me, I’m your man. I’m working on crate training, but if I’m left alone out of the crate, I’m well behaved. I’m just looking for a loving home to call my own!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sherlock (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.
