Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Mix
Age: 8 YEARS
Sex: Neutered
Color: TAN
Shelter Name: MAX
Shelter ID: 102495
Description: Hello Clackamas County! My name is Max, I am 8 years old, weigh 60ish pounds, and I am looking for a quiet home and person(s) to call my forever. I was quite shy when I arrived at the shelter, but am grateful that the staff gave me lots of patience to be able to call them my friends. I am looking for a person or people who have a quieter home where I can thrive off of structure to help my confidence and to help me feel comfortable - breakfast, dinner, my walks, and cuddle time will be pretty predictable. I am hoping that my new person(s) will have a lot of patience - I will be shy when I first head home, but I will slowly come out of my shyness and you'll see I'm a sweet boy. I am looking for a home that does not have any children (they can sometimes be pretty busy and loud, and that's just not my speed anymore.) If there is a dog already in the home, I'd prefer them to be on the older side of life like myself, and calm like me. If I am your only pet, I'd be happy about that as well! I originally came from Texas, and the fine folks here at the shelter ran a test and found out that I have heartworms; not to fear, though! I'm not contagious, I'm not showing any symptoms, and I'm already undergoing treatment! The folks at Clackamas County are committed to completing my treatment even after I've been adopted, so don't let that hold you back from meeting me and seeing how wonderful I am! So if you have a quiet home, and you are ok with being patient with me to give me the time to feel comfortable, please come and meet me today! Your patience with me will pay off! Restrictions: Dog selective, No Cats, No Kids Medical: Being treated for Heartworms

Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier/Mix

Color: TAN
Size: MED
Shelter Name: BLOSSOM
Shelter ID: 102535
Description: Hi you!! I'm Blossom!! I'm about 1 1/2 year old Pittie who weighs 36 lbs, and I am so excited to find my forever home! I am a young, energetic, super smart, hilarious girl! When I first got here to the shelter I was very shy, so when I get to my new forever home it might take me some time to feel comfortable. I really enjoy slow introductions to new things in life so that I can investigate and find my confidence - I'll be looking to my forever person to be my advocate with new/novel things and help me feel comfortable. My friends here at the shelter started basic training with me and I learn new things super fast! I will need my forever person to continue to take me to training to be the best girl I can be (and also to keep my brain active - learning is fun!) I have a flair for the dramatic arts, and can put on quite the comedy show with my antics. I will need a lot of daily physical and mental exercise - walks, runs, and hikes sound super amazing, and so do daily puzzle feeders and toys! At the end of a busy day, I'll love snuggling up for belly rubs and cuddles! If your lifestyle is one that is active like I need, and dedicated to helping me learn all of the things to be my best self, come and meet me today! Restrictions: dog selective (best with a male of similar size and energy level), No Children and, no cats.

Shelter Name: MAXIMUS
Shelter ID: 102538
Description: Maximus is my name, and finding my forever home is my game! I am about a 1 year old Black Mouth Cur mix who weighs in at 60 lbs. I can be a bit shy at first, but if you give me the time I need to feel comfortable I'll be your best friend! I'm hopeful that my forever home is one that is patient, will provide me with daily walks or hikes to help me stay physically active and fit, that will provide me with toys and games to keep my mind busy and learning, and will take me to training classes - my friends here at the shelter have been teaching me things to help me be the best boy I can be, and I'd love to keep learning with you! I love belly rubs and cuddle puddles, and I also enjoy being outside - do you go on outdoor adventures around Portland? If you do, I might make a great outdoor adventure buddy! If you already have another dog at home, please bring them here to meet me to make sure that we can be friends. I'm a young fella, so I still have a lot to learn, a long life ahead of me, and I can't wait to meet my forever family! If your lifestyle matches what would be best for me, come in and meet me today! Restrictions: children 13+, no cats, dogs ok, dog experience preferred.

Breed: Doberman Pinscher
Age: 6 YEARS
Sex: Neutered
Color: BLACK
Shelter Name: CALLAHAN
Shelter ID: 102541
Description: My name is Callahan, and I'm pleased to meet you! I'm a quiet, middle-aged guy looking for a breed savvy home. I'm a large and powerful guy, and so I will need a home with a new family who has experience with Doberman Pinschers. I'm a pretty well-mannered gentleman, although some training and gentle guidance to smooth out the rough edges would be much appreciated. I will do best in a home instead of an apartment. I have been known to dig under fences so please make sure you have a secure area where I can be safe when I am outside. I will need some positive reinforcement and practice getting this whole "stair" thing down; how do you humans make stairs look so easy?! I'm not looking to share my new home with a cat, and any other dogs in the home will need to be over 25 lbs. and come meet me to make sure that we get along! Because of how large I am and my sometimes shy demeanor, I will need to live in a home that has no children. Once you get to know me, I come out of my shell pretty quickly, and love some good gentle scratches and petting! A soft, cozy bed would be wonderful, too! If I sound like a great addition to your home, please come meet me today! Restrictions: No Cats, Breed Experience Preferred, Dog Selective (Dogs over 25 lbs. please), No Children

Many of our dogs come in as strays, which means we know very little about their background or true temperament. The information provided is based on what we have observed while the dog is in our care. Because of this, we cannot assure you that a particular animal will always have appropriate behavior with children, cats, or other dogs. These behaviors can evolve over time and often not exhibited in the shelter.

We encourage you to research the dog breed you are interested in, as every breed has certain characteristics and behaviors. Please be sure those breed characteristics will fit in with you and your family’s lifestyle.

*This site is updated once a day, so please note some dogs may have been adopted during that time.
