Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of great dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Portland.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Joey, poodle and petit basset griffon vendeen mix

Joey is a male poodle and petit basset griffon vendeen mix staying at Underdog Railroad Rescue.

Joey will get along great with your other dogs. He is looking for cat-free home. No need to worry: He's already house-trained. His vaccinations are already up to date, and he is neutered. Joey is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Notes from Joey's caretakers:

Joey has seasonal allergies that are being treated with antibiotics as he gets a chronic sinus infection. We are working with a specialist to determine his long term care. Joey also has loose knee caps on his rear legs and a stiff hip and will need pain meds and supplements throughout his life (no surgery is required, he saw a specialist). Joey needs a home without a lot of stairs, and he requires a fenced back yard. He also needs a family who will spend quality time with him.

Jersey, Saint Bernard mix

Jersey is a female Saint Bernard mix staying at Oregon St Bernard Rescue.

Jersey will get along great with your other dogs. She is looking for cat-free home. Good news: She is already house-trained. Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she is spayed.

Notes from Jersey's caretakers:

She is athletic and is looking for a home with an active family that will take her for walks and hiking. Jersey loves everyone, likes to give hugs and cuddles. She has been good with children. She knows some basic commands. She can be selective with other dogs and needs slow introductions, but she has done well with the male dogs in her foster home. In Jersey’s mind, cats are for chasing and she would prefer a cat free home. She has had problems with chasing livestock in the past. She would love a yard with a six-foot fence. She can be an escape artist when she is bored, so we are hoping for a family that can keep her entertained and happy.

From Nova's current caretaker:

She sleeps through the night in her crate. Nova spends her days relaxing on her bed and chewing her bone. She is a little skittish but warms up to people.
