The Oregon Humane Society’s Dog of the Day is Osito. He is a sensitive tiny one year old long haired Chihuahua and Pomeranian mix who hasn't quite gotten used to his new environment. He has been quite nervous in this new situation and prefers to take things slow so he can feel more comfortable in what is happening around him. Osito would do best with older children who can respect his boundaries and be patient with him while he settles in. He will need lots of love, patience, and lots of treats of course, to help him feel comfortable in his new home. He’s a little pint sized fellow weighing under ten pounds so as he becomes a part of his new family it will be easy for him to become your travel companion! Osito seems to do well with other dogs, and may feel more comfortable with a calm, small dog in the home. Come visit with him at the Oregon Humane Society, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland 503-285-7722. Viewing hours are 10-7 Sun-Wed and 10-9 Thurs-Sat. Adoption hours are 10-6:30 Sun-Wed and 10-8:30 Thurs-Sat.
His adoption fee includes neuter, microchip ID, collar and OHS ID tag, initial vaccines, courtesy veterinarian exam, and plenty of post adoption support! Availability is subject to prior adoption.
Dogs are also available at the Oregon Humane Society’s Westside Adoption Center located inside at Lexi Dog Boutique and Social Club, 6100 SW Macadam Ave., Portland. If you want know if your potential new best friend gets along with other dogs, this is the place to visit. OHS dogs spend their days in a large group area alongside other dogs in a doggie day care facility. Kittens are also available for adoption here and they all live in "colony rooms" with their fellow felines. Visiting and adoption hours for both dogs and kittens are 10-6 Monday-Friday; and 10-4 Saturday-Sunday at the Westside Adoption Center.
