  • Labrador Retriever, Poodle

Rosie is a 8 month Labradoodle looking for her forever home. She is approx. 55lbs. Videos: https://youtu.be/4OqR-uJR2YQ https://youtu.be/tGhmaVdw2oA She is a bundle of energy and needs to be given lots of opportunities to take the edge off. She does best when given a mile plus walk first thing in the morning and tons of playtime opportunities throughout the day. Because of her activity level we would like to see her go into a home that has a large secure backyard for her to run around in. Rosie would make a great hiking dog or even jogging partner (5-10 miles, with a little training of course). Rosie is house trained but still needs consistent potty breaks. She does great with large breed active dogs. She would NOT be ideal in a home with a dog smaller than 20lbs or a senior. She is a playful giant and could accidentally step on or injure other dogs in play. Rosie would like a home with another active and young large breed dog but would be okay being the only dog in the home. Rosie needs to be watched closely around small objects. She thinks if she can reach it that it is fair game and will try to eat anything. There should be plenty of dog approved chew toys in the home as she loves to play with and chew on toys. She has been in a foster home with a toddler and can accidentally play rough and get a little mouthy at times but with a dog friendly child in the home she would do great. She just needs to be taught what is and isn't okay. Rosie is the kinda dog that when she sees something run she thinks its playtime. If you have a cat in the home that is dog friendly and stands their ground instead of runs, Rosie would be fine with that. Rosie is very well socialized and loves all humans and pets. Because of her over enthusiasm for love, no seniors (human or pet) in the home due to her high energy and clumsiness. We wouldn’t want her to accidentally hurt someone. She is still working on basic commands. Things like "sit", "down", "off", "no", "come" are all foreign to her and will take time and consistency to master. Rosie is also working on jumping which she will need continued training to help remind her to try and contain her excitement. Rosie is kennel trained and settles down nicely at night. To Recap: *Rosie needs a home that is very active. *Rosie needs a ton of playtime OR a 5-10mile run daily. *Rosie needs a big, securely fenced backyard. *Rosie needs help to continue her basic command training. *Rosie needs consistent puotty breaks. *Rosie needs a home with no small dogs or seniors. *Only adopting within 30 miles of the Beaverton, OR Area* Rosie's adoption fee is $400. She is up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed, and micro-chipped. She is one happy playful pup just looking for her forever home.

PepperAnne: approx 4 yrs old, 18 lbs, possible Schipperke mix. ***We will adopt PepperAnne within 25 miles of Beaverton, OR*** FOR MORE INFO OR AN APPLICATION TO ADOPT PLEASE EMAIL: kelley2nwac@gmail.com Hi! My original name is unknown, but they call me PepperAnne. My canine brother and I were lost and taken to the county shelter. The Good Samaritans that found us adopted my brother and I was left behind. The kind people at the shelter realized what a sweet dog I am, and noticed that I was very uncomfortable in the shelter atmosphere, so they reached out to their partner foster home based rescue, and here I am! I LOVE people, ONCE I GET TO KNOW THEM ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, and I want to be with the ones I love whenever I can, but I'm not super needy. I would love a single female human companion with lots of time for me, a nice couple, or a family to adopt me and become my forever home and share my life with. I won't be happy left home alone for lone periods of time, so if you leave for work all day, I'm not your girl. My foster home has other dogs and cats. I'm fine with all the dogs, but honestly I'm most comfortable with dogs that are friendly and not dominant towards me. I will follow them around and bark when one of them "sounds the alarm". I will also bark if something startles me or if I see certain dogs while on a walk. I like to snuggle up next to the other dogs in my foster home, IF the humans aren't available, but HUMANS are my first choice. Cats.... well, I do have this innate desire to chase them, but not hurt them. I DO LISTEN when my foster parents tell me NO, I will stop instantly and offer them a lowered head, to say I'm sorry. I also sleep on the human's bed with the other dogs and cat, and we all get along just fine. I shouldn't live with a timid or old cat, I don't want to "accidentally" scare them. My family that lost me, taught me to listen when the humans talk, so I do my best to always listen. Sometimes when I meet a stranger or a new dog, I can't help myself and I will bark and it's hard for me to control myself, I'm learning that strangers are okay. I would never think of going potty inside the house. I'm trained to go outside and I'm really good at it. My fosters do take me outside often for potty breaks, so that's something I will need my new family to do. I never chew on anything I shouldn't, so I have full house privileges in my foster home. I'm not super fond of the crate, I may whine a little if you decide to put me in one, but I do settle down.......eventually. I would love a home where my humans have lots of time to spend with me. I adore my humans and I really want a companion to share my life with. I won't be happy if you leave me home alone all day long. Please have a nice size, SECURELY fenced yard for me to run zoomies in. I love to run around super fast, SNIFF a bit and then stretch out and enjoy the sun. I cannot be trusted left alone in a yard. If a cat or a squirrel should happen by, my temptation to follow them is too great. Plus, I really want to be with you. Here's what my foster family has to say about me: PepperAnne is a very sweet, cute, fun and loyal dog. She will dance for a treat or will sit if asked. She enjoys being around women, BUT is hit or miss with men. A home with LOTS of time to spend with her will be best for PepperAnne. She will make a wonderful companion for a single lady, a couple or a family with lots of time to spend being with her. As mentioned, she won't be happy left home alone while someone is gone working all day. She loves going for walks, but does pull a little because shes excited to smell everything. She will need a harness for walks. Weighing only 18 LBS she's easy to control on the leash. Sometimes when meeting new people usually men, or dogs in public, randomly she may bark at someone and even lunge towards them, we haven't figured out what triggers her to do this. We will continue working on her with meeting strangers in public places. She's a very loving dog, maybe it's just due to over stimulation? PepperAnne is a joy to be around. She's quiet, loves attention but isn't needy. She is great with the other dogs in our home. She's not what I would consider a dominant dog, but she doesn't like to be dominated by other dogs. So a home without a dominant dog is a must. She's not aggressive, but will defend herself if another dog is mean to her. She would do fine with a gentle, friendly dog in the home. PepperAnne does the cutest "dance pirouettes" when offered a treat. And she will greet you gently by putting her front paws on you when you come into the room. She's one of the sweetest dogs we've ever fostered. She likes to climb up on your lap for attention and a good belly rub. She's an active dog. SHE LOVES RUNNING ZOOMIES in our fenced yard, but not overly active. In person, she looks like she could have some Schipperke, Chihuahua, Shepherd and Lab in her mix. Whatever her mix, she's got a friendly temperament and is a wonderful small dog. Oh, and she's a successful canine fly catcher! The best fit for her new home: females (some men take a long time for her to feel safe with) work from home or stay at home person securely fenced yard, she loves being able to wander and explore her space off leash another friendly small dog Our adoption process includes: application - approval meet and greet - approval home check - approval, for the safety of our rescued dogs adoption Adoption Fee: $250 Includes: previous wellness exam at time of spay, spay, microchip, up to date shots, flea prevention and one really nice dog For more information, or an application please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com ***we will adopt PepperAnne within 25 miles of Beaverton, OR***

  • Boxer, American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Prefers home without cats
***EVERYONE THAT MEETS ME, LOVES ME*** My name is Fletcher. Don’t I have the sweetest face? I’m a ball of energy, wiggles and love and I will give my belly up to anyone that is willing to rub it. I am a mystery of breed. I am most likely a Staffordshire mix but the mix part is not yet determined. I could be part Boxer, I could be part Beagle, or Black mouth Cur. My foster parents call me Little man. I am about 46lbs and at 19 months old, I’m not expected to grow much more. I have quite the personality. A few seconds with me and you will be wooed with my charming smile and affection. I love to cuddle up on a recliner with you and when you go to bed, I will climb in with you, find my spot and stay there all night. I’m a very good sleeper. I love people. Sometimes I get so excited though and jump up. I’m working on my manners, but it will take some time and a family that will continue my training. I’m very good with all the other dogs I meet, young old, big, small. At the dog parks, I am Mr. Congeniality - I alternate between playing with the other canine friends and visiting with all their parents! I’m energetic and very social so I need another young dog to play with. I would also be a great running, hiking, go lots of places with you companion. I really like my people. I prefer to be around them as much as possible. If you work from home or are not gone all day, that is ideal for me. I am fully potty trained and use a dog door. I will go into a crate, but my foster family didn’t need to use it. I only tear apart toys, but none of my human’s things. However, a bored dog can be a destructive dog. I have a lot of energy and need daily play time, walks and exercise. My foster mom walks me at least 2 miles a day and does training and play with me. I have a few special requirements to make my adoption work… Not much is known about my history. I was with a family but my curious nature kept getting the better of me and I would get out and run off. After multiple times, being picked up by animal control, they decided not to return to the shelter to get me. I am very quick and will get out an open door. I need a home where the family can be diligent about closing doors and preventing me from escaping. Because of this, I cannot be in an apartment OR a home with people that leave doors open, I WILL run, I love exploring, but that's not safe. I need a fully fenced yard with a fence at least 5ft or taller. I have a HIGH PREY instinct and cannot live with non-canine animals like cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc. Squirrels and cats move fast and my hunting instinct will kick in and all my attention turns to trying to catch. I walk well on a leash, but need a confident leader that will provide positive enforced training. If I see a squirrel or cat, I need you to redirect my focus. I can be a little stubborn (can’t we all?) and sometimes I have my own ideas that aren't always in my best interest. When walking, if I get focused on something, I want to inspect it.so my human needs to watch for my cues and redirect me with positive commands. I am already very mindful and diligent about commands; I just need you to be my leader and to guide me when I get distracted. I will need quality kibble with poultry protein, to help keep any potential allergies in check. I am very treat and attention motivated. I like attention from my people, and will offer you lots of love in return. If you are looking for a loving companion that will give back all the effort you put in with affection, kisses and devotion? Can you provide me with a safe and SECURE home where I can't escape and go on on unsafe romps? (this is extremely important) I am your Little Man? Would you like to adopt me and bring me into your family? We adopt within 20 miles of the Beaverton/Portland area. ****************FOR A FASTER RESPONSE, please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com Adoption Fee: $250 Includes: initial wellness exam, neuter, microchip, up to date shots, flea treatment

Luthor is a 15 lb Lhasa mix; an older gentleman with exquisite manners. He has been the perfect house guest. He greets all new humans and dogs with a respectful but curious tail wag. He never competes with other dogs for food or attention, and always patiently waits his turn. He respects your belongings and while he sniffs everything out of curiosity, he does not take things or chew on them. Luthor has been left out in the living room of his foster home unsupervised every night and never gets into trouble or potties in the house. He will always let you know by sitting at the door when he needs a potty break, and, if you have a fenced yard, all you have to do is open the door and he takes himself outside. Although he has difficulty seeing and is mostly deaf, Luthor is a very chill little guy, very happy most of the time. He has a bouncy little walk, and he loves to prance around the yard and enjoy the scents in the air. He does not bark, but he will "talk" to you, especially if you are in the kitchen dealing with food. He loves soft treats and some people food (chicken: yes! broccoli: no!) He likes a slow pace to his daily life, which is why we recommend a home without young children (they simply move too fast and startle him). Luthor was a stray before his rescue, so not much is known about his past. The vet thinks he is about 10 years old. Luthor had a full physical exam on 4/17 with bloodwork done, and a thorough dental. He has cataracts in both eyes, and he has been started on vitamins ( C and E) to slow down the development of the cataracts. He also has a bit of a stiff gait due to arthritis, which can be controlled with vetprofen. He has no issues with his heart, kidneys or liver. All in all, he is very healthy for a senior special needs dog, Luthor would be happiest in a home with a relaxed pace, where he could just spend time with his person, go outside a bit each day and get fed lots of the right kind of treats, followed by a good nap. If you think that Luthor would be a good fit in your home, please contact his foster mom at mslouannhall@gmail.com for an application. Please note that Northwest Animal Companions only adopts within 30 miles of Beaverton. Our adoption process is: 1) Application 2) Meet & Greet 3) Home Safety Check 4) Adoption and approval is required at each step before proceeding to the next. Thank you for considering a rescue dog as a possible new family member!

Maui - Female -DOB -12/30/17 >>>>>> For more information or an application to adopt please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com Beautiful,1 yr old Maui appears to possibly be a mix of Chocolate Lab, German short hair Pointer, Pit Bull. A lovely spirit, gentle, a timid dog until she knows you. Very shy. She has the body of a Pointer, tall and lean, the loving eyes of a Pit Bull and the goofy, playfulness of a Lab. Here are a list of things we feel Maui needs in her new home for Maui to continue to be a happy dog: 1. A female home. She does best with women, men frighten her. 2. A home with another young, playful, medium/large dog to grow old with. Friendly cats would be a bonus! 3. A home were someone is home a lot. She loves the companionship and needs a home with time to continue her socializing/training. 4. An owner able to continue her on the inexpensive medication Buspirone, for her fearfulness. She loves to play fetch, chew on squeaky toys and play with other dogs. She also likes to snuggle with her human foster parents. She's a very gentle, playful, sweet -but timid dog. Maui will need a home in the suburbs or country with a 6ft secure wooden fence, and a large yard. She enjoys having playtime in the yard to play and romp with another dog, and to play fetch with her human. Due to her timid behavior around people, she will need at least one other friendly, YOUNG, playful. medium to large dog to live with and grow up with. Without this, she will NOT be a happy dog, so it is a must. City life will not work for Maui, she is too nervous for city living. All the cars and people would make her extremely uncomfortable. Once she knows you, she is the sweetest, cuddly, playful, gentle puppy. At first she is leery of new people and will run. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body, she's just nervous at first and fearful. It will take her a bit of time to become comfortable with her new humans... but once she gains your trust, she will follow you around and be your best friend. Maui, unfortunately was NOT properly socialized at the crucial weeks of her young life that she needed to be. Because of this, she's a VERY TIMID dog around new people. She's NEVER aggressive, has never attempted to bite, she just shies away from people until she trust them... which will take time and patience. She's such a sweet dog, she just needs the right home, one that understands how to work with confidence building. Recap: Maui is sweet, gentle, playful and most comfortable with women,once she knows them. If she doesn't know someone, she tries to run away from them. She has never attempted to nip or even grow.... she's just timid. With continued socialization, she's doing better! She was never abused, she was raised with her mama and siblings, then surrendered to rescue because the owners couldn't afford to alter all the pups and wanted the best for them. Maui is timid when meeting new people/places so she needs a lot of continued socializing. Having another friendly, well balanced canine sibling will help her overcome this. She's potty trained and crate trained, and walks pretty well on a leash, UNTIL she sees a stranger, then she becomes fearful. She will greet dogs in a calm and friendly manner, but will air snap at them if they rush her. (fear) Due to Maui's need for more social training we are looking for a home with plenty of time to devote to continued outings/socialization. She's not a dog that will do well left home alone for hours. She is energetic, playful and most likely destructive if left home along and gets bored. A daycare would be too much for her. Maui is crate trained, but LOVES to share the human bed. If her crate is in a bedroom with a human, she is fine crated. Maui will do best placed in a home with another young, playful, medium/large, well balanced dog, to learn from and grow old with. A dog friendly cat would be a bonus. She tries so hard to get the cats in her foster home to be her friends. Maui is a sensitive, timid dog by nature that wants nothing more than to please. She loves her humans and is a big cuddle bug, once she trusts. Couch and bed privileges a must, she loves to be close. She will need a home that understands working with a timid dog. If yelled at, she will shrivel and run from it. >>> For more information or an application to adopt please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com She will need a home with a large, 5-6 foot high fenced yard. She will do best with access to both inside and out, she loves being in the yard playing, but also wants to snuggle on the couch or floor near you. Maui is adjusting to car rides. She settles in, mainly because she's afraid. She doesn't whine, bark or pace. She will need continued help getting used to car rides. >>>>> For more information or an application to adopt please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com ***WE ONLY ADOPT WITHIN 30 MILES OF BEAVERTON, OR*** Our adoption process: Application - approval Meet and greet - approval Home check - approval (for the safety of our rescued dogs) ADOPTION Adoption Fee: $250 Includes: Wellness exam, spay, microchip, up to date puppy shots, worm treatments, flea treatment and one beautiful, sweet puppy >>>>For more information or an application to adopt please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com

Lady is a sweet little dog, ONCE she gets to know new people. ONCE bonded she loves to sit on your lap, and will sleep on your lap for as long as you sit. She is approx 12 years old and wants nothing more that to sit near her humans and be loved. She is great with cats and other small male dogs. Not a huge fan of large dogs, or female dogs, she tolerates them, but would rather not have to. NO BIG dog families, or female dogs in the home please. She is potty trained. But does have a medical issue, sometimes she "can't hold it". She tries, but due to her health issue, sometimes her "plumbing" doesn't work quite right. Lady needs someone home a lot that is able to take her out often to relieve herself. Her health issues do not allow her to always "hold it". She takes weekly medication for this. This medication has to be compounded by a specialty pharmacy, it costs approximately $60 per prescription. Lady is afraid of little kids. Their quick movements and voices scare her, she growls and will snap, but she has never bitten. She has expressed her fear and will not go to a home with kids under 15 yrs. We don't want to set her up to fail or bite. Lady was allowed to sleep on the bed with her previous owner, she has been allowed the same sleeping arrangement in her foster home, WE WOULD PREFER SHE GO TO A HOME THAT WILL ALLOW HER TO CONTINUE SLEEPING ON THEIR BED WITH THEM.    She doesn't move around much Lady Is a joy to be around. She's adorable and wants to be where ever her humans are, she loves car rides and taking walks. BUT her walks must be at her pace or she injures herself. Due to dwarfism, she rolls onto the tops of her feet if you tug on the leash to get her to follow you, when she rolls her feet she scrapes the skin off. She isn't much of a barker.  A home with another small dog(s) is a MUST, she really NEEDS a small male canine companion. Tricks? She thinks tricks are for kids not dogs. Lady would love a home with people home a lot. She likes to snuggle up on the couch with you. She doe not like to be picked up, it terrifies her (she must have been dropped ). Picking her up must be done slowly. Due to her dwarfism, she needs "doggie" stairs to help her onto the bed or couch, she uses them like a champ. She could use, and would love a walk or two a day to help keep her girlish figure. She walks very well on the leash and harness at her pace or she damages her feet due to dwarfism if you go too fast. Lady has been diagnosed with a form of canine dwarfism. She doesn't have great balance when walking on soft surfaces, like the covers on your bed. She has a cute prance when she runs, due to the way her bones grew. Only noticeable when looking for it. Going for a walk is a bit challenging, because she rolls onto the top of her feet and can cause bleeding abrasions. Her dwarfism also affects her ability to hold her urine and feces at times. Lady is on medication now that HELPS with her incontinence issue. Adoption fee: $150  Includes: spay, microchip, UTD shots, worm treatment, flea treatment.
