Ash's Story...
Hey guys, this is Ash. I guess I got nominated for the FDNL 2017 Coolest Dog of the Year award. I was pretty surprised! Cuz like, it’s my first time competing, and I have heard that there were some pretty cool dogs in the competition. I guess that there are a lot of factors that go into nominations. But since I have such a great personality and am very loving and playful with other dogs and children, I got kinda fast-tracked to the top of the list. I didn’t even know I could be a candidate! I was just doing things how I normally do. I guess they really liked how quickly I took to the crate-training program here at the shelter and how intelligent I am. It didn’t even matter that I don’t get along with cats. After all, no one is perfect. It is a really nice honor, and it feels good to have some recognition after all the turmoil life has thrown at me. I am not going to let it go to my head or anything, and you know, I’m just going to keep doing what I do and wish everyone the best of luck. 9 months old-43 pounds. My adoption fee is $260 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, 1 month pet health insurance, free vet exam, reduced-cost training class, leash/collar, toy and treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ash, 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.
