  • Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier

Introducing 1-2 yr old Patch, AKA- lover of all he meets! This cute little guy is about 10 lbs, as friendly as they come. He will seek out children to play with, and enjoys the company of adults as well. He's great with friendly dogs and even wants cats to befriend him. Patch was caught as an injured stray who went into rescue after being hit by a car. He had surgery to repair the fracture in his leg. He is now healed- and is running, and playing with the best of them. His foster tells us that Patch loves to play with dogs, kids and cats- and loves to play fetch! He really likes people and may stray to meet others, if he's off leash or left in an unsecured yard. If you have a yard, it must be securely fenced with at least a 4 ft high fence, and Patch can not be left out alone of long periods of time, for his safety. He does fine walking on a leash, but does pull at times. Patch is doggy door trained. Patch does NOT like being crated. He loves to be in your lap and sleeping next to you. Patch is a HAPPY, very friendly little dog who would love to find his forever home. His ideal home will have someone around a lot, or can take Patch to work with them. He doesn't like being left home alone and can get anxious when left alone. A home with another playful, YOUNG dog his size would make him very happy. If no other dog, than a human(s) he can spend all of his time with would be great. Patch is super playful and - VERY ACTIVE and NEEDS AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE. Because of his high activity needs he will not be a good fit for sedentary seniors- human, canine or feline. He would love to be your jogging, brisk walking or hiking partner- snuggle buddy. ***** We will adopt Patch within 30 miles of Beaverton, OR**** 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: wellness exam at time of neuter, neuter, microchip, up to date shots, flea prevention If you feel you may be a great match for Patch and would like more info, or an application, please email: kelley2nwac@gmail.com **A secure 4ft+ fenced yard is required for his safety (If you have a yard) **We will adopt Patch within 30 miles of Beaverton, OR ** PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF HIS YOUNG AGE.

  • Lhasa Apso

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Special NeedsPrefers home without small kids
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.
