Nessie's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Nessie's Story...
I’m Nessie! Am I cute and sweet looking or what? While I am very cute and cuddly, I’m also a complicated little gal who will need some work. I am very wary of strangers and new people and I’m not afraid to let’m know I mean business! This is pretty typical Chow Chow behavior, so read up on my breeds ok… Once I warm up to you I am just sweet as could be! I love attention and cuddling and all around affection. I’m also very bright and smart too. I also have some guarding issues that will need to be corrected as well, let’s just say I need to learn to share my treats and food with other dogs and humans too… So yeah, I won’t be the easiest gal in the world, but I assure you I’ll make a very loyal companion and cuddle buddy with a good amount of positive training! 1 year old-28lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes; spay, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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