The Oregon Humane Society’s Dog of the Day is Vald. He is a two year old Tibetan Terrier mix that doesn’t quite look like his picture any more. He came with badly matted fur including that on his ears and face and it took a haircut to remove the mats from his face and body. He is a very friendly fellow once he gets used to you, which often doesn’t take too long and he then loves getting attention. Vald may be a bit nervous in new situations and will take things slowly so he can feel more comfortable in what is happening around him. He would do best with older children who can respect his boundaries and be patient with him while he settles in his new home. Vald has the potential of becoming a cheerful little fellow with lots of energy. 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.
Vald’s 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.
