She's still waiting! I'll be getting some more info on her history from shelter staff, and will update her webpage as well as this thread soon.

That has got to be the luckiest family ever, to end up adopting Gerkin. I'll bet they know just how lucky they are too.

Congrats Gerkin!

Sugar in Oregon

Sugar has been living at the Multnomah County Animal Shelter in East Portland, Oregon for several months. She is being very well taken care of, but needs to get a home to call her own. She is a short and wide gal, weighing in at a very sturdy 37 pounds. She needs to be an only pet. She does not like...

It sounds to me like this dog has a whole lot of good qualities, and you are doing everything right by him. What I would suggest, if you can, is to find a really good local dog trainer or behaviorist who might be able to help you redirect his unwanted dominance behaviors. We have a trainer in my are...

PNWPBR is also unable to take owner surrendered dogs, as there are already too many on euthanasia lists who are completely out of options. Angela, you have a big heart. But your friend needs to accept responsibility for her dog. Tell her what can happen to her dog, should she choose to take her to a...

Amy, excellent post. I can offer my experience, and the choices I made: I gave my last foster dog 3 weeks from the time he showed behavioral issues until I euthanized him. I did not set out with that timeline, that is just how long it took me to make a decision. He came to me very sick, and I felt i...

What a CUTIE!!! I love his wrinkles! He was in foster care but is at the shelter now? This was foster care for the shelter where he is at. That is how they work it with this shelter - give the dog a foster spot to get them in good shape for adoption, but if they do not get adoption interest while i...

I met Madylin last week, and took a whole ton of photos. She is a beautiful, tiny thing. Lots of spunk, and very sweet!

Well everyone just keep good thoughts for Otto. This application is now approved, so it comes down to how these two guys connect when they meet. I am very excited for Otto, and hopeful that this is his home!

Awww... poor little Chi's. I wonder what the adoption rate is on the small dogs there? In my area shelter, the smalls are adopted almost as soon as they hit the adoptions floor (and often before)

Tino is too handsome for his own good. Wow! :inlove:

No, we cut off her leg. She was HBC and there was too much nerve damage in the front and it did not recover. Like our man Tanner then. Well it looks like she is doing quite well without that extra leg getting in her way! I hope you are able to find her a great foster or adoptive home soon. I'm keep...
