One Tail at a Time is a no-kill rescue. Our animals are either housed in volunteer foster homes or at our Adoption Center and can be introduced to approved potential adopters who complete an adoption survey.
Adoption fees are $300 for puppies under 6 months, $250 for adult dogs, and $150 for dogs over 7 years old. Senior people that adopt senior dogs will get a special rate of $100. This includes spay/neuter, microchip, all vaccines and a wellness exam.
For more information on an adoptable dog, contact the Adoption Counselor listed in each dog’s profile, or email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com.
At 9 years old Leia was found wandering all alone in the desert near Elko, NV where she was taken to the local shelter. When no one came for her after weeks of sitting there, we couldn't bear the thought of her spending Thanksgiving in a shelter and not a home.
So that's exactly where she is now. Leia is being fostered in Portland, OR with two other dogs, two cats, and two humans. She loves them all, but loves the couch the most. She's quiet, good on leash, house trained, good in the car, and loves stuffed animals. At 53lbs. she is the perfect size for cuddling.
Email OTATpdx@gmail.com with any questions and fill out an adoption application at OTATpdx.org/adopt to be considered as her forever human.Apply Now
He was given up by his previous owners because they said owning a dog was too much responsibility. He landed at a shelter in Elko, NV and that's where we sprung him from, bringing him to Portland, OR to find his perfect forever home. He's pretty much the lowest maintenance dog you can imagine so we're thinking his owners confused dogs and cats.

Toby isn't a huge fan of his crate--nothing extreme, just tends to scratch at the crate pan--so might thrive most in a single family home or with an adopter who doesn't work an extensive work day. Overall though he's a total peach and should really fit in well with just about any loving home.
Toby is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and as of 11/27 he'll be a resident of our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so come on by during our open hours to meet him! If you'd like to be preapproved for adoption you can access our survey here: Apply Now

In addition to being one of the cutest little guys we've ever seen, Basil is also super friendly and just a great all around dog. He also seems to enjoy the company of other dogs so could join a family with another friendly pup.
We believe Basil is just over a year old so he's beyond puppyhood but still a young and outgoing fellow. He's a new addition to the One Tail at a Time crew so we'll be sure to update with new photos soon!

Ike is a pretty low maintenance guy who is totally housebroken and though he enjoys being outdoors and exploring the yard, he's a mellow guy who is more happy being a movie watching buddy than a jogging companion.
We believe Ike is about 3-4 years old and is now neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is heartworm positive but has already started his treatment and the rescue will continue to be financially responsible for the duration of his heartworm treatment.
Ike will thrive most in a home where he's the only dog and, though he's great meeting people of all ages, with adult guardians. If interested in adopting you can email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com for more info or access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Honey is also totally house broken and described as "very well behaved."
This lovely lady is spayed, microchipped, heartworm tested, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Rocky has previously lived with kids and other dogs so we anticipate he'll acclimate well to most loving homes. Since we've received the question, no Rocky isn't hypoallergenic but he does seem to be relatively low-shedding.
This guy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. His adoption fee is $250 and as of 11/20 he'll be a resident of our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so swing on by to meet him or get preapproved for adoption here: Apply Now
Ogre could stand to lose a few pounds but is an otherwise healthy guy and is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. He is generally good with other dogs and just about any loving family looking for a big lug to call their own should prove a good fit.
This smiley guy is resident of our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) so swing on by during our business hours to meet him or email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com if you'd like to set up an appointment outside of our hours. You can also be preapproved for adoption here: Apply Now
We aren't entirely sure of this guy's glorious breed mix...Rottie? Mastiff? Shepherd? Boxer?...but we do know he'll be a great addition to some lucky forever home who is looking for a loving companion.
Porter is now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped.Please note, we aren't a big fan of Porter's collar in his photos either but we wanted to snap some quick pics when he first came to us--we'll update with more flattering photos/snazzy cloth collar soon.

Max's adoption fee of $250 includes his neuter, vaccines, microchip, and heartworm test. If interested, you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
We're a little unsure on her age because her paperwork estimates her at 6 years of age and her teeth seem in line with that, but she has the cutest little frosty face so may be a couple years older.
In addition to her basically perfect personality, Chiquita is cute as can be and can roc a sweater with the best of 'em. This little miss is now spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. Her adoption fee is $150 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
Albie is a quiet guy who will be a good fit for apartment or single family living. And though he's shy at first he isn't fear aggressive in the slightest, just a little timid. He's a big fan of couch snuggles and lap cuddles and can totally rock a hoodie in the most adorable way possible too.
Albert is now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. He's perfecting his house breaking but again has proved a fast learner. His adoption fee is $150 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
Ava is immediately sweet, social, and engaging with women but does often take a minute to warm up to men. The easiest way to her heart is with treats and trust, within a day of knowing our (male) vet and a couple male kennel staff she did a 180 so she can absolutely go to a home with people of both genders but we anticipate it may always take her a little longer to bond with her male friends.
Ava is now spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
Now that she knows the comforts of home, there's no going back! Sophia has her playful moments and does enjoy going on walks--plus she needs them as she could benefit form losing a few pounds--but is also an expert at sharing the couch, settling in for movie night, and helping her foster dad with graduate school work.
We believe Sophia is about 4 years old and has now been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. As you can see from her photo, Sophia is also a fan of other dogs and can certainly go to a home with other friendly canine companions. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Foster mom reports she is housebroken, an expert snuggler, and though she has her playful moments Pam is certainly not a hyper gal. Pam currently lives in a single family home but seems as though she would do just fine with apartment living too.
She is now vaccinated and heartworm tested and will be spayed and chipped prior to adoption. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Olivia currently shares her foster home with three other dogs including a grumpy old guy and two other younger dogs--she is great with all three and respectful of the older grump while super playful and engaging with her peers. She is doing awesome at crate training and sleeps quietly (and without an accident) in her crate overnight!
Currently, Olivia is receiving weekly bandage changes and checkups at our vet's office. It is unclear yet if her leg will heal properly or if she'll ultimately need amputation but regardless of outcome the rescue is committed to providing her with the medical care she needs.
Though the rescue will continue to cover her care for this pre-existing issue, she can join her new family at any time. Olivia is now vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. She currently weighs about 25 lbs and her breed mix is a total guess--we see Boxer and maybe greyhound but she certainly could be part pitbull, Basenji, shepherd, who knows!

This sweet old gal may not have always had the life she deserves but boy are we committed to making sure the rest of it is spectacular. Bonnie is about 10 years old and her luck really turned around when she landed in one of the greatest foster homes ever. Her favorite things include rotisserie chicken, orthopedic beds, and snuglges with her foster mom.
Bonnie is currently sharing her home with another dog and is generally fine with others though given her age (and some arthritis) she is more of a coexisting kind of gal than one that wants to play or deal with puppy energy.
Bonnie is vaccinated, heartworm tested, spayed, and microchipped. She is on pain medication for arthritis but is an otherwise healthy gal. Her adoption fee is $150 and can be accessed here: Apply Now
Moosette is also seemingly housebroken and crate trained so jackpot! She does enjoy going on walks and playing some but has a middle of the road energy level so would do just fine with either an active family or a family that is more looking for a movie watching buddy.
This snorty gal is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
Andy can be mouthy/nippy and his leash behavior leaves something to be desired so will do best in a home with adults and teens. He's currently rocking it in his weekly training classes and would thrive with additional training in his forever home. Andy is now neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.Thanks to one of Andy's adoring fans, his adoption fee is now sponsored so you can save that money for treats and toys.

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
Bishop's favorite things include playing fetch, sitting for treats, and being adorable.
He 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.
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.He's currently a resident of our Adoption Center so swing on my 2144 N Wood to meet him!
