Young, Male, Medium
Marty, or Marty Mcfly to his friends, is one happy go lucky guy. His foster family says he is so sweet with people and other dogs too. Marty gets along wonderfully with his foster sister--and is a champ at sharing toys with her too! He knows sit and is eager to learn; he would benefit from some simple puppy training for other commands and walking better on leash. He's progressing with his potty training but just not quite 100% yet though he is very comfortable in his crate and sleeps through the night in it without a peep or accident. We haven't even heard a peep out of this guy - who knows if he even barks! Marty is also an exceptional cuddler so really the best of everything!

Marty is approximately 6-7 months old and weighs about 23 lbs; he may fill out a bit but we don't anticipate him getting a whole lot bigger.
Now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped, Marty's adoption fee is $250. As of 9/4 he'll be a resident at our adoption center (2144 N Wood) so plan to come visit him during our regular business hours!

Young, Female, Medium
Hey if sticking her tongue out is what it takes for Jazzy to get your attention, she's game. This 8 month old mush mouth is just the best kid ever and though she had a rough start in life and came to us via the Safe Humane Chicago program she is nothing but sweetness from the moment you meet her.

Her foster mom reports she is a huge fan of shoulder snuggles, cuddles of all varieties, and is an awesome balance of playful pup and chilled out lady. Though Jazzy is the only pooch in her foster home, she is dog friendly and can certainly go to a forever home with other canine companions.

Jazzy is vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped prior to her adoption. Her adoption fee is $250 and if you think this girl could complete your home, you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Adult, Female, Small
If Chihuauhas are your thing that's cool, but you don't have to be a "chihuahua person" to fall madly in love with Belle. Her foster mom says...Belle is the best. Such a sweet pea.She loves fluffy blankets, belly rubs in the sunshine, and cuddles.

This tiny girl (5-6 lbs soaking wet) is awesome and loves everyone and everything that she meets...other dogs get a thumbs up from her as do people of all ages. At around 2.5-3 years old, Belle is beyond puppyhood but still has a long fun life ahead of her.

This little lass will fit in well in just about any household--though due to her small stature may not fare well with toddlers--and should prove an awesome companion for some lucky family. Belle is now spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

  • Pointer, Terrier

  • Spayed/Neutered
Adult, Female, Medium
Listen, you just can't begin to understand how cute and wonderful this girl is until you meet her in person. Her foster mom reports Nora is is very sweet and playful and settled into her apartment setting quickly--not that she wouldn't love a single family too, but she's cool with basically any living situation! Give Nora a rope toy and she's happy as a clam. This three year old gal is about 50 lbs and she's sweet and friendly with everyone she meets. She has her playful moments but is also a big fan of just hanging out. As if Nora wasn't already a dream dog, she's also housebroken so bonus. Nora is hit or miss with other dogs--seems like she wants to be the dominant one--so though she's totally fine walking past other dogs on walks, etc, she may thrive most as the only dog in her forever home.

Nora is now spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and as of 9/3 she'll be a resident at our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so plan to come meet her during our regular business hours!

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Male, Large
If you're looking for a mellow couch potato, this ain't it! But super duper dog and people friendly? Yep, that we can do! Scooby is about a year old, maybe 50ish lbs and just an outgoing, fun loving, cool dude. He loves the following...water (see video), canine pals, human pals, being handsome, smiling. This young buck does have his cuddly mellow moment but overall he's looking for an active home where he can romp around and have some fun. This guy is perfecting his housebreaking but once on a consistent schedule should be a pro--he just gets a little too excited at the prospect of meeting new friends sometimes.

Scooby is now neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. His adoption fee is $250. As of 9/3 he'll be a resident at our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so feel free to come visit him during our regular business hours.

  • Shepherd, Hound

Young, Male, Medium
Atlas is everything a puppy should be...sweet, social, playful, and snuggly. This guy is about 4 months old and shares his foster home with another dog; he enjoys the company of both humans and canine buddies so can certainly go to a forever home with other friendly dogs.

Though Atlas has his playful moments, he's a pretty chill guy who is a fan of cuddling. Though we aren't sure of his exact mix, we anticipate he'll be a medium sized adult (he's currently about 20 lbs) and we *know* he's going to make some forever family very happy!

Atlas is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300 and as of 9/4 he'll be a resident at our Adoption Center-2144 N Wood- so feel free to come visit him during our regular business hours (2-7 Friday, 11-6 Saturday, 11-3 Sunday).

Young, Female, Small
In addition to this girl's adorable looks, her foster mom reports that she is just the best pup! She's amazing with all people, dogs, you name it. Gilly is also great in her crate, and though she has her playful moments she's a pretty chill puppy.

We aren't sure of this kiddo's exact breed mix but she's a little peanut (about 10 lbs and 3.5 months old) so we anticipate she'll be a small-medium adult.

Gilly is now spayed, has received all age appropriate vaccines, and is microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

 . Abby - Portland .  . Abby - Portland .  . Abby - Portland .
  • Poodle, Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Adult, Female, Large
This is Abby. She hasn't had it so easy in her 3 short years but we're going to help her turn that around right now.

Abby was purchased from a breeder in Ashland, OR as a puppy. Despite the breeder insisting she be spayed and not be made to have puppies, Abby's owner didn't listen. So Abby has had at least one litter that we know of, and was an awesome and concerned mama to all seven pups. Now that her babies are older, Abby deserves a home that loves her for her, not for her reproductive abilities.

It appears Abby was never properly socialized with humans or other dogs, so while she has lived with other dogs, she would prefer a home without other pets. She also appears to be afraid of men, so a single woman or female couple would be perfect for her.

She may also be the type of dog who will bond closely with just one or two people and be uncomfortable around many others, so for this we are requiring Abby goes through some training with her new adopters to set everyone up for the most success possible. Abby cannot go to a home with small children. People who don't need a dog that's the life of the party are Abby's type of people. But she would love to cuddle up on the couch with you once guests have gone home.

This girl is sweet, house broken, and making progress with crate training - just needs to learn what it is to be an indoor dog who is a member of the family. She appears to have lived outside her whole life until now. She hasn't had any accidents in her foster home, but also clearly does not understand what house life is all about (dishwashers, cooking in the kitchen - it's all scary). Everything is new for her, so she needs a patient person who is willing to let her come around with proper positive reinforcement training.

Abby will probably need a pretty small world but has tons of love to give the right people. Please email OTATpdx@gmail.com if you have any questions about Abby or our adoption process.

She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and totally healthy.Apply Now

This floofy lady is the sweetest, snuggliest, ball of cuteness ever. She and her siblings (Corrin and Caleb) are all friendly, outgoing, typical puppies the sweetest and most cuddly of the brood. Cory is about 3 months old and weighs around 15 lbs. We aren't entirely sure of her breed mix but anticipate she'll be a medium sized adult. Cory is friendly with people of all ages and enjoys other dogs too so can go to a home with or without other canine companions and really should be a good fit for any loving family.

Cory and her siblings are doing great with potty pad training and should pick up quickly on housetraining as they are all smart and eager to learn plus typically make it overnight without a single accident!

This little 4 month old is just the best and he is wayyyy cuter than his current photos showcase (we'll try to update them soon!) Ajax is currently living in a foster home with a number of roommates and he adores them all as he is just the friendliest pup and really endears himself to everyone he meets. Though Ajax is the only dog in his foster home, he joined the rescue with some of his littermates and has proved friendly with every dog he meets so he can certainly go to a forever home with other social dogs.

Ajax is currently around 20 lbs and though is breed mix is a bit of a guess, we anticipate he'll be a medium sized adult and we *know* he'll be a lovely companion for some lucky family for many years to come.

Mush mouth alert! Have you ever seen a cuter snout?! Miss Vela is a great young lady with both looks and personality. This beauty is about 3 years old and approximately 50 lbs. She has a playful and active streak but is also a big fan of snuggling. Vela has done well when greeting other dogs and it certainly seems as though she could share her home with other friendly canine companions. She's a bit too much for cats so would thrive most without friends of the feline variety.

Vela is also friendly with people of all ages though may prove a bit much in the size/energy department for young children whom she could unintentionally bowl over. This smartie pants is well on her way to being housebroken but may need a little refresher course in a new home.

This gal has received her vaccinations and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. Her adoption fee is $250. Vela currently lives in one of our wonderful foster homes so if you'd like to meet/adopt her, you can access our adoption survey here and we can then arrange an intro: Apply Now

Anyone who says there's no such thing as the perfect dog, probably hasn't met Moxie. At approximately 8 months old and around 40 lbs, this girl is amazing. She loves other dogs, is good with cats, has a wonderful balance of both playful and calm relaxed energy, is seemingly crate trained and housebroken, oh and she's smart as can be too having already learned "sit" and "down."

Moxie is also a huge fan of belly rubs and endearing herself to everyone she meets. It does seem Moxie prefers adults to young kiddos but would likely do just fine in a home with older kids/teens.

Moxie is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250. This gem is a resident of our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so feel free to come visit her during our regular business hours (Thursday and Friday 2-7, Saturday 11-6, Sunday 11-3).

  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Female, Medium
We here at the Adoption Center are all a little obsessed with Abby and her cartoonish body! Abby's exact breed mix is a total guess but she appears to be some mix of lab, maybe basset (stumpy legs!) and at around 20 lbs is just a little dumpling.

Abby is now about 4 months old and her previous foster family just cannot say enough good things about her. She can be a little shy at first but does quickly warm up and loves romping around with her toys and entertaining herself.

Abby's adoption fee of $300 covers her spay, vaccinations, and microchip. Abby is a resident at our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so please swing by during our regular business hours of 2-7 Thursdays, 2-7 Fridays, 11-6 Saturday, and 11-3 Sunday to see if Abby is the girl for you.

This unbelievably cute, short, squat, gal is really one in a million; everyone who meets her immediately falls in love and she is a total staff and volunteer favorite. Suzanne is just such a charmer..from her snorty pig noises, to her special squeaky toy prance, this girl is a character in the best way possible.

Though humans are her absolute fave, Suzanne is also good with other dogs and can certainly go to a family with other friendly canine companions. This stubby gal is about 3 years old and weighs 40 lbs so she's a great medium size and is well suited for apartment or single family living.

Suzanne is unfortunately heartworm positive but she can go to her forever family at any time and the rescue will continue to cover the cost of her treatment. She is an otherwise healthy girl who is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

This little heartbreaker is Mikey and yeah, he knows he's handsome. At approximately 4 years of age and 10 lbs, this lion-maned fellow is the full package of looks and personality.

Mikey is typically great with female dogs and loves romping around with his buddy Molly, but would do best without other male dogs. This little man is great with people and should thrive in any loving home.

  • Chihuahua, Shiba Inu
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Male, Small
Petfinder doesn't give the option of "tiny fox" as a breed so we gave our best guess but outside of Chihuahua, who knows what this little man is?! Could be part Shiba Inu, maybe a little bit Finnish Spitz, all we know for sure is that he is cute as can be and has the greatest floofy fox tail ever.

In addition to his dashing looks, Chi Chi is quite the catch in the personality department too. He is friendly with everyone he meets and, though on occasion he can have a bit of a Napoleon complex at first meeting with other dogs, he is dog friendly and can certainly go to a home with other canine companions so long as they're a good match.

Chi Chi is about a year old, right around 9 lbs, and will be a great addition for some lucky family. He's currently perfecting his housebreaking skills but has made great improvements and we're confident that once he's neutered (on 8/19) he'll become even more of a pro. Chi Chi is up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested negative, and will be neutered and chipped prior to adoption. His adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

Kale Chips is a celebrity! He made national headlines and was featured all over the Internet after we rescued him in January 2015. He was a whopping 85 lbs and could barely walk due to his severe obesity. Since joining us he has lost over 30 lbs and is well on his way to being healthy and happy.

Read all about him here: http://tinyurl.com/ovnfs2j

Kale Chips has no medical issues, but he will need to go to a home that is dedicated to helping him continue to lose weight.

Kale is a spirited, typical Beagle who is full of sass and Beagle howls. He's super friendly with people, great with other dogs and likes to be outside. His stubborness comes out when he doesn't want to do something, so we would like to place him with an experienced owner who will give him boundaries without pushing him. He's a *great* dog and deserves only the best.

Good with dogs, cats and people. Not a big fan of kids.
We believe he is between 7-9 years old.

Email HeatherOTAT@gmail.com if interested in Kale Chips.
His adoption fee has been sponsored and he has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Visit http://www.onetail.org for more information.Apply Now

Young, Male, Medium
The stubby-legged heartbreaker is named Bishop and he's ready to go home with you! He's a well behaved boy, though he does need to be the only pup in the home. That's ok though...with his adorable looks and personality one special guy is all you need. Bishop is around 1 year old and about 40 lbs.

Bishop does have some separation anxiety and sometimes barks when crated; he would thrive most in a single family home, ideally in the suburbs where he can romp around in a yard all his own. Currently though, he's a city boy and is really thriving with his foster dad!

Bishop's adoption fee has been sponsored by one of his doting fans so you can spend that money on toys and treats for him instead! Bishop is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. If interested in adopting this scruffy guy, you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
