Adult, Female, Small
Thursday--and her two puppies--came to us in January after being rescued from an abandonment case by our friends at Animal Rescue Corps (http://animalrescuecorps.org/). At around 1.5 years old and maybe 15 lbs, Thursday is a shy and timid girl at first but after just a couple days with her foster parents she quickly bonded and is now nothing but wiggles and smiles (yes, she actually smiles!) as soon as she sees them.

Thursday's wonderful qualities include the fact that she is super sweet, very quiet, perfectly housebroken/potty pad trained (depending upon her options), adorable in the looks department, eager to please, and loves to snuggle.

She will however need a more specific home than some dogs do as Thursday will do best as the only dog in her adoptive home and also needs a home where she has a fenced in yard as she is terrified of walking on leash so walks aren't at this point an option for potty breaks.

This little lady has been vaccinated and heartworm tested and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can email her foster mom at AnnaOTAT@gmail.com with any questions. If you'd like to access our adoption survey you can do so here: Apply Now

  • Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler), Greyhound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Male, Medium
This extremely sweet and gentle boy recently joined our organization after being rescued from a situation with the help of our friends at Animal Rescue Corps (http://animalrescuecorps.org/) Though the first part of Macgyver's life was a little tumultuous, he has always been surrounded by other dogs and people with good intentions and that is clearly reflected in his endearing and loving personality. This 1 year old's breed mix is really a total guess but he's 45 lbs and full grown.

Here's a bit about what MacGyver's foster parents have to say about him:

MacGyver is great! He's already learned so much (he's pretty food motivated so that helps): "sit", "down", "paw", and is in the process of learning "crate". He will help himself to your lap and would be fine getting pet for days. He is a very gentle guy, a bit skittish but he'll still play with you and enjoys chasing balls. We think he's going to be great at fetch because he's very reliant on sight and super smart. The sight reliance can make it a little bit tough to take him out after dark and he's still a little hesitant to walk anywhere that isn't well lit. Mostly he's still adjusting to living in a city and is a bit freaked out by cars, buses, and trains. We think he's making good progress though, since his reactions to things are improving and are in no way aggressive. He's going to be a great pet for someone as he is pretty relaxed at home, took to crate training and hasn't had an accident in a week!

MacGyver is now vaccinated, heartworm tested, dewormed, and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. His adoption fee is $250 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now

Our new buddy Mikey is a goofy, playful and happy puppy. This adorable spotted nose felllow was originally found as a stray and is estimated to be 6 months old. Mikey loves other dogs and is enthusiastic to meet them, greeting them all with a play bow. Mikey is a young and playful guy, and though he can be mouthy at first he is smart and willing to learn. This brindle gent loves everyone he meets and will greet you with a wiggle and a play bow.

Adult, Female, Small
Oh Sadie, you poor thing. Found in an abandoned building after her owners had moved away, Sadie wound up at a high kill shelter in California at 8 years old. And we just couldn't let that be the end of her story. So she hitched a ride to Portland where she's enjoying the luxuries of her foster home, especially the warm places to nap.

Sadie is being fostered with another female dog who she is cool with, but doesn't love high energy dogs in her face. So she would prefer a home with other calm pets. Otherwise she is a total love, such a sweetheart with people and just wants to be near you, or, preferably, on you. Loves to be picked up, great in the car, and just an easy going low maintenance gal looking to spend her retirement in a quiet home that appreciates her scruffy face and will to chill.

Email us at OTATpdx@gmail.com with questions and fill out our adoption survey at OTATpdx.org/adopt to be considered for Sadie's forever home.Apply Now

Meet Ocho, the dog we saved to celebrate 8 years of saving dogs! Ocho is a 4 year old 'Chiweenie' mix who is so far super sweet with people, very snuggly, cautious of cats and tolerant of other dogs. Ocho is a little guy who is quiet in his crate, good in the car, seemingly house trained and just really loves being with his people. He likes being held, going to work with his foster ma, and running around the yard.

Ocho was rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern California and brought up to Portland to enjoy the good life as a forever dog. Email us at OTATpdx@gmail.com with any questions about this little dude, and fill out an adoption survey at OTATpdx.org/adopt if you'd like to be considered for his forever family.

As with all OTAT dogs, Ocho is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and totally healthy.Apply Now

Adult, Male, Small
You don't need to be a Harry Potter fan to fall in love with this little character! Dobby is a 2-3 year old Chihuahua mix who is beyond adorable in both the looks and personality department. He is immediately social and friendly with everyone he meets, loves playing with toys, and is just a fun loving little guy.

On leash, Dobby can be a little barky with other dogs but once he meets them up close and personal he loves playing with them and has been wonderful in play groups with both small and large dogs here at the Adoption Center.

This little man is now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and you're welcome to come visit him at our Adoption Center (2144 N Wood) during our regular business hours.

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Adult, Female, Large
You kind of have to meet Moosette in person to understand just how stinkin' adorable she is, but we'll do our best to convey it here. At around 5 years old and 60 lbs (girl could stand to lose a few) this low-rider is the cutest mini-hippo ever. In addition to her good looks, Moosie is also a friendly girl who enjoys going on walks, snuggling, and being perfectly house/crate trained.

Moosette is is perfectly fine passing other dogs on walks and even hangs out with her neighbors pups from time to time but will likely thrive most as the only pooch in her forever home. Sometimes Moosie is a little tentative with new people so though we know she'll love and bond wonderfully with her forever family, she'll thrive most in an adult home.

This snorty gal is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now

  • Shepherd, Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Female, Medium
This brindle beauty is Cammie and, at about 1 year old, she's a fun loving girl who is a big fan of meeting new people and making friends. She currently shares her foster home with a 5 year old child and has lived with kids of all ages in the past so can certainly go to a forever home with children. She has also previously lived with other dogs and generally loves romping around with canine friends.

Though she's still a young girl, Cammie already has some basic commands under her belt and seems eager to learn more! She is housebroken too, so bonus. Though Cammie will likely be fine for apartment or single family living, she does tend to have a bit of anxiety in new situations so will do best with someone who isn't gone an 8-10 hour workday every day.

This great girl is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com with any questions or access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
 . Olive .

  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Senior, Female, Small
This tiny little peanut is Olive and her foster family just cannot say enough good things about her. She is reportedly a total angel, though given her age it's nice to go slow and gentle with her especially when scooping her up. She love her treats and is definitely food motivated. She spends her day taking long naps, so a quiet home where she can live out her golden years would be lovely for her. She shares her foster home with two other dogs and though she's a bit protective of her immediate space (like her bed) she does great going on walks with them, around feeding time, etc. so she can certainly go to a forever home with other sweet dogs. She is great on a leash, crate trained and completely housebroken.

Olive is around 10 years old (one vet aged her at 8 and one at 12 so we're going right in the middle with our estimate!) but she's a healthy girl and our vet feels she could easily have many years ahead of her. She is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, had a recent dental and is microchipped and her adoption fee is $150. You can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

  • Spayed/Neutered
Young, Male, Large
This handsome mug is Miguel and in addition to being easy on the eyes, he's pretty great in the personality department too. At right around a year old and 50 lbs, Miguel is immediately social and engaging with everyone he meets. He is a strong hunk of love and, as such, would benefit from some additional basic training just so his zest for life doesn't get in the way of him being a well behaved boy.

Here at the Adoption Center, Miguel enjoys showing off his "sit" command for a treat, romping around the yard with toys, and making new friends. He also seems to be a well behaved boy in his kennel which will hopefully translate to a home environment.

This dude does have some serious hops so unless you have a super tall fence, we'd recommend leash walks for now so that his combined athleticism and curiosity don't get the best of him! Miguel is also good with other dogs and can certainly join a forever home with other social dogs so long as they're a good match.

Miguel is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and you can access our Adoption Survey here: Apply Now

  • Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler), Pointer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Senior, Female, Large
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 a low maintenance girl who is really content with some head scratches and a place to snooze. She'd make an excellent movie watching buddy and cuddle companion. Bonnie is great with people and totally fine greeting other dogs too though will thrive most as the only dog in her own home.

This lovely girl is house trained and, outside of being a fan of lounging on furniture, and has great household manners. Bonnie is vaccinated, heartworm tested, spayed, and microchipped. She is on pain medication for arthritis but is an otherwise healthy gal. Her adoption fee has been sponsored by one of her doting fans; you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now

  • Beagle
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Adult, Male, Medium
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
