Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving 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.)

Ellie Mae, chihuahua

Ellie Mae is a female chihuahua dog currently residing at Underdog Railroad Rescue.

Ellie Mae loves children, dogs or cats. She is already house-trained. She is vaccinated and spayed.

Here's more from Ellie Mae:

Hi there, I'm Ellie. I am a chihuahua and I am three years old. I love to cuddle, and I also have lots of energy — especially in the morning when I often get the zoomies. The dogs who are my foster sisters are my buddies, and I like waking them up from their naps to play with me. Going out for walks is also super fun. My forever home should either have no cats, or cats who really like dogs. I definitely want a doggie friend or two, though!

Lilly, Chiweenie

Lilly is a female Chiweenie dog in the care of Woofin Palooza, LLC.

Lilly gets along well with other dogs and cats. Woofin Palooza, LLC, however, wants to place her in a home without small children. She has had all of her shots.

Notes from Lilly's caretakers:

Lilly is a sweet gal. We are working on lots of basic commands and giving her lots of structure. She will need someone who will continue exactly what we are doing. She is a great dog for kids of seven years of age or older, and all other pets including kitties.

Matt, Chiweenie

Matt is a male Chiweenie dog currently residing at Lancaster Four Dog Rescue, Inc.

Matt is happy to keep company with other dogs. He is already vaccinated.

From Matt's current caretaker:

Matt is a two year old Chihuahua doxie mix. He has fear of women and does best with men. Matt adores his foster dad and follows him everywhere. Matt is a great dog who is loyal, loving and loves to cuddle up and watch TV. Matt needs someone to give him a chance since he can he shy at first, but warms up fast and will be your buddy for life.
