Adoptable Dogs


This is a list of dogs currently available for adoption at Family Dogs New Life Shelter.
We do keep this listing very current, so all dogs listed here regardless of the post date are still looking for homes. Because FDNLS is a no kill shelter all dogs who come into our care have a safe place to live until they are adopted, so some of our residents have been in our care for months or even years.

Annabelle

German Shepherd + Labrador Retriever + Boxer Mix
1 year old
Female
54 pounds

I’m having trouble deciding… Anna, or Belle? Belle is a lovely name, and it means “beautiful,” which is quite fitting if you ask me. But Anna is real classic, meaning “grace,” and I just know that I can really grace your heart with immense love. So how do I choose? I’ve got it! Annabelle—it’s the best of both worlds! And I am truly the type of girl worthy of such a name. I can bring joy to your family, your children, your other dogs…just not your cat! I’m young and fun and eager to learn, a lively lady with a soft side. You should see how quickly I catch on to new things—I got the hang of this crate training thing in no time! See what I mean…Smart, beautiful, graceful, and lively! The best of both worlds!

Austyn

Catahoula Leopard Dog + Australian Shepherd Mix
3 years old
Male
50 pounds

I’m Austyn…and I must admit, I am feeling pretty down…I had this really wonderful thing, but I just lost it, and I’m really hoping I can find it again soon. It was called a home. See, I’m a super-smart boy who is very loyal affectionate, and playful. I’m housebroken, crate trained,  I love playing with other big dogs (not the little ones though!), I enjoy a good game of fetch, am great at hunting cats, and am as devoted and protective as they come. See, that’s the reason I lost that valuable thing called a home. Once I had a family of my own I decided that I loved them so much that they didn’t need anyone else in their life. So I decided not to let strangers get too close, especially when we are out on walks- see I have this thing called leash reactivity which means that I get really defensive if people or other animals get too close when I am on lead. Sometimes I ‘d decide not to let that other little furry four legged companion get his fare share of love either…so that family decided that I needed a new home. Not because I did’t love them, but because I loved them a little too much…who thought too much love could get ya in trouble huh? Anyway, I suppose it really is best. I need a home without smaller animals or children, where I can receive all the training and guidance I need to overcome my fears and learn to be better about sharing all this love. So here I am, hoping to find what I’ve lost.

Well, howdy folks, Miss Avalon here! I just wanna let y’all know about an exciting limited-time offer I got goin’ on. Have you been lookin’ for love in all the wrong places? Are these cold winter nights leaving you with a hankerin’ to snuggle? Well, I got just the solution to your predicament—me! I have just been bristlin’ with excitement to share my love with the right family…one with other dogs, cats, or sturdy children to keep me company would be great. A home where I can be inside, showing off my great house manners and being an active part of the family set. But you have to act fast, cause my love will be limited to just one lucky family! Since I am so darn adorable and so darn sweet I just know this amazing offer won’t be around for long. Come on down here and see what you’ve been missin’!

Bellingham

German Shepherd + Labrador Retriever Mix
1 year old
Male
60 pounds

Can’t you see it now? You and me hiking the trails…jogging through the neighborhood…spending relaxing evenings snuggling on the couch. I can see it! To me it looks like a dream! I could sure use a dream come true. I don’t mean to play a damsel in distress, but I am ready for my forever family! Sturdy children 8+ to romp with, other dogs to run and roughhouse with…oh the fun to be had! I also wouldn’t mind if you had a house cat, as long as they won’t mind a big puppy pestering them. I have so much love packed inside me, and I know I will make a family very happy. I just need someone to give me the time, attention, and dedication all pups deserves. An active lifestyle, patience, understanding, and reward-based training will have me well on my way to becoming the dog of your dreams.

BG

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
11 1/2 years old
Female
80 pounds

You like girls with beautiful curves, right? A little padding for the petting? I know when I see a Greyhound I’m like “someone get that dog a milk-bone”, you know what I’m saying?!? I got all the filling in all the right places- both inside and out! Good looks and a great big personality to match! I get along great with other bigger dogs, but I am not a fan of cats or small critters…I’m a chill girl who doesn’t like to be pestered, so I prefer furry friends who just want to hang out and cuddle; no running, romping, yappin or funny business.  And respectful children 12+, I don’t mind them one bit as long as they understand how a Queen like me should be treated. I want to be treated with respect, I want everyone to know that I am the Queen of the castle. I may be a lazy lady, but I do still like to work on my fitness, so walks around the neighborhood or strolls through nature would be good for me. And you best believe that I’m not only takin’ pride in myself but in my house too…so you know I keep my place clean. I also keep my place safe, real safe, my family too; call me Queen Protector. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Buddah

Pit Bull Terrier + Boxer Mix
2 years old
Male
47 pounds

That’s right, Buddah’s my name, and as it suggests, I am a supreme little being. I have descended from the heavens into this handsome body of mine to win over your love. It was lonely in the skies looking down upon the earth and watching all the dogs and their masters loving each other, so I decided it was time to come down and hang with the common folks for a change. So far I enjoy playing with toys, receiving lots of attention from humans, going for walks, and I think playing fetch is the best thing ever!!! I enjoy roughhousing with other dogs, and I have lived with cats (I must admit I do love chasing them!), but I have a bit of an issue sharing my goodies, so don’t expect me to share my food, treats, or toys with others. This means a family with children 12+ will be best for me. I’m just a young adult, so I act mostly like a grown-up, but I still have a playful puppy side. Overall I’m a very, very sweet, sensitive, handsome, and playful guy who would love to bring a little spirituality into your life. Did I mention I’m housebroken and crate trained too? Would you expect anything less?

Chance

German Shepherd + English Mastiff Mix
9 years old
Male
100 pounds

Gimme one shot and I know I can hit that bull’s-eye on your heart. My name ain’t Cupid, but I reckon I have just as much love to throw around as that chubby baby. I been down a long hard road in this life, but I never let it break my spirit. Sure I can be cantankerous with other dogs at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. I prefer that children around me should be 10+ and respectful of their elders. In my book, you get what you give and I don’t give cats any love, so I expect the same from them, which is fine by me. My crate training has been going really well and I am pretty excited about having my own little den of solace. I mosey at my own pace and don’t have too much giddyup, so low and slow is how I like to roll. My knees ain’t what they used to be, so I don’t really have any marathons in me anymore. But I still like to get out and throw the old ball around. If you can see it in your heart to give this old soldier one more tour of duty, I will pledge to you my heart, my love, and my honor.

Chico

Shiba Inu Mix
7 years old
Male
13 pounds

Being a dog, I may not have a lot of sway in the ways of world politics or worker’s rights. But I still want to make a difference. I may not be able to change the hearts and minds of the world like Chico Mendes, but I think I can change your heart for the better. I have a kind of love that will never be fully understood by anyone other than you. I am slow to trust and hesitant to invest myself in new people. But I know that when that right person enters my life it will be the best feeling in the world. A family with respectful kids 12+, now that feels about right. I also get along with other dogs and have shared my home with them before, but no cats for me! I am already housebroken, my crate training is coming along great, and I bet with some reward-based training there will be a whole lot more you can teach me! Let’s have our love make this world a better place, Chico style.

Coral

German Shepherd Mix
1 year old
Female
52 pounds

According to Wikipedia, Corals are marine invertebrates…but I think they have it all wrong. Corals are in fact canine companions suitable for all environments. As long as they receive plenty of love, guidance, and TLC they can thrive in any family habitat, just as long as there are no felines present. Corals flourish when given proper guidance and direction; they learn new things quickly and are very eager to please. Crate training is also second nature to Corals.
So there you have it, Wiki, maybe it’s time a revision is made… one that ends with this Coral finding the perfect reef to call home.

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
5 years old
Female
50 pounds

He loves me…he loves me not…he loves me…oh, I hope that you will love me! I want to be loved so much I can taste it! It is sweet and sugary like a doggie gingersnap! But I want forever flavor, not just a sample. I had a really nice home for the past year, but sometimes things happen in life that turn your world upside down. I feel like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole—I know there is a Wonderland waiting for me. I love to play! I know all sorts of tricks! I love to go for runs! I am very active and want to find a forever home that can keep up the pace! I am house trained, crate trained, love to play with other dogs (but don’t like to share my ball), can cuddle like nobody’s business, and am very loyal to those I love. I am wary of meeting New people and can be very protective of My people, so I will need  an adult-only, low traffic home where I will be allowed plenty of time to warm up to strangers, but when the feeling is right we will be bubbling with love in no time. The one thing I can’t seem to do is get along with cats, but who wants to be friends with those snooty butts anyway? They say if you love a flower to let it be, for if you pick it, it will cease to exist. But if you pick this flower then we will exist together!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Derby, here is a quick recap: I am Derby and I have been looking for a forever home ever since I was picked up off the streets. Entering into a system of unfamiliarity and an ambiguous future, I decided to create my own destiny. After arriving here at Family Dogs, I founded the Love Derby to help me find love in no short order! It’s a race to my heart, and you’re in first place! Bold, I know, but I can’t wait around here forever! A couple of obstacles to look out for while you are out on the course are my overprotective nature, my aversion to cats, my need to find a home with respectful children 12+, and my bossy attitude with other dogs, regardless of their size. But once you cross the finish line and reach the winner’s circle of my heart, you’ll be rewarded with my excellent personality, exceptional crate training and housebreaking skills, prize-worthy loyalty, and blue-ribbon cuddle powers! So pick up the pace cuz if you win the Love Derby you’ll get to love Derby!

Gosh darn it, don’t I just have the cutest little name? My mama done good with that! It matches my cute little face, my cute little rump, and my pretty little eyes. Yup, I’m just a sweet little ‘ol Georgia Peach! I’m young, active, enjoy the company of gentle and respectful children 12+,  like playing with the other dogs from time to time and I surely hate kitty cats! Sure, I could use a little more in the training department, but I’m smart and super loyal, so that should be fun! Obedience classes would be great socialization too, which I could benefit from…since I get a pretty nervous around new people. A good confidence boost should do wonders for me! This whole rescue business has my head spinnin’, and I can’t tell which way is up! But I promise, you help me find the surface, and I’ll promise you to be the sweetest companion I can.

Hi! I am Jojo! Wake me up before you go-go! Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo. Cuz that’s a no-no! Just kidding, except for the part about my name. You know how Jojos go so well with chicken strips? Well, that’s what I am looking for…the chicken strip that will go perfectly with this Jojo! It’ll have to be a special recipe, since I am a pretty special lil potato. I’m longing for an understanding, loving, and patient person who will help me become the best dog I can possibly be. I have a long road ahead of me, but I will try my best. With consistency and positive reinforcement I will be on my way to learning to trust again in no time. I get along with other dogs very well, and cats don’t bother me, but I will need an adult-only home—grabby hands and the youthful energy of children is just too much for me. I do love to get gentle scratches behind the ear and snuggle in the blankets, and I will stick by your side like glue…just give me a little time to trust you. I also love to play with my toys, I enjoy going for brisk walks around the neighborhood, and my crate training is top-notch! So what do you say? Wanna be my chicken strip?

Longing for something sweet? Something smooth? How about a splash of Kahlua! Warm that belly up with a new companion! Now, I may not be for everyone…I mean, if you don’t enjoy cuddling on the couch you better pass me by! How about a pup who adores children and likes playing with other dogs…does that sound good to you? I don’t do so hot with kitty cats though. I walk pretty nicely on leash, but I just get so darned excited when I see other dogs or squirrels or kitties or bicycles….A basic training class would go a long way in teaching me all I need to know. Doesn’t that sound like fun? What about a sweet, playful, athletic, and intelligent pooch who is crate trained, enjoys cuddle sessions, going for walks, and romping in the backyard….does that sound good to you? I mean, really, how could it not? Come on, don’t you think it’s the perfect time to warm your belly and your soul with a little Kahlua?!

Kindhearted Momma Kellogg is the name, or Kellogg for short. Please send all adoption inquiries to kelloggwantsafamilyofherown@dogmail.com. Actually, don’t do that. I had to quit emailing because it’s so darn hard to type with furry paws. Maybe I’ll invent the doggie computer keyboard once I get outta here! I’m just about smart enough to do it. Maybe you saw my baby boys here on the website? They were raised here at the shelter with me. Now that I am all done taking care of them I am oh-so-ready for a home of my own. I’m a very affectionate young lady, fun, active, and smart as a whip. I haven’t had a ton of training yet, but I’m ready! I get along well with children and other dogs, but don’t expect me to be nurturing when it comes to cats…I can’t stand those critters! Stop in and ask for Kindhearted Momma Kellogg!

Nerf

My Stats:

Chocolate Labrador Retriever
5 years old
Male
76 pounds

Nickname: Pin-Ball Boy

Favorite Activities: Fetch. Fetch. Treats. Fetch. Playing in the water. Fetch. Playing tug, getting pet and following the sound of your voice. I am a totally goofy guy who’s also totally blind- which is where I get my nickname- I tend to bump into things for a while until I get familiar with surroundings.

Pet Peeves: Stairs are big one, those things are tough for me to master. I’m a little too curious of new things and I like to use my mouth to explore, so small kids 8+ are more my style.

Come in and meet me so we can get to know each other better!

5 years old
Male

So I hear you’re looking for a new best friend? Someone who is a real sweet heart…well, I may be just who you’re looking for! I am O-so affectionate and O-so loving. If you’re looking for someone to accompany you on your daily walk or jog, a buddy to tag along on your weekend hikes, or a pal to take to the beach, I’d be more than happy to join since I am O-so playful and enjoy a good time. How about a friend for your other dog? I am O-so lovable and affectionate, I’ll make a wonderful companion for your other dog or respectful older children, but I am not O-so willing to share my home with cats. Some people say I’m O-so quirky; I had a really rough puppy-hood that left me with a neurological condition called epilepsy , but don’t worry, aside from an occasional love obsession with going after my tail (I’m pretty sure its playing hard to get) you’d never even notice! I’m keeping my crate O-so clean and tidy, such a great start to all the other awesome stuff you can teach me…since I am O-so smart. So how about it… don’t I sound O-so right?

Just a timid flower, waiting to take root in a place I can call home. What do you think? Are you willing to take me in and let my heart blossom? In turn I promise to be your devoted companion. I will be pleased to sit by your side, receiving the occasional pat on the head. I will be eager to go for a morning walk or have a fun day playing in the back yard. I will make friends with your other dog, but I might insist on being boss, and I might not even mind sharing my flower bed with cats- as long as they don’t mind a good chase and a bossy lady! Calm respectful children 12+, are welcome too. I also keep my little flower pot, aka crate, free of debris or refuse. It may take me a moment to trust, but if you are patient and seeking a new best friend I will root myself right in your heart!

Richie

Pit Bull Terrier + Labrador Retriever Mix
1 year old
Male
51 pounds

Want some companionship? I’ll pay up! Want a handsome best friend and a great playmate? Then I’ll pay up! You want a loyal buddy to be a part of the family and stick by your side? I will fork over them bills! I get along great with other dogs and love to romp and play. I like cats too, sometimes a little too much, so they best be up for a good game of chase. I adore children—however, I don’t always realize my size, so the tykes should be 7+ and big enough to handle this pot of gold. I am totally crate trained and I do know a few basic commands already, but sometimes I don’t wanna listen cause I just get distracted by other fun things. Can you blame me? I mean, I am still just a pup after all! I’m a social, playful, and animated dude who’s ready to buy all this world has to offer…My name’s Richie, and I am an awesome companion looking for an active family to cash in on all the love I have to offer!

Shrimp

Pit Bull Terrier + Shar Pei + Jack Russell Terrier Mix
18 months old
Female
42 pounds

Who you calling a Shrimp! Ok, I guess my name is Shrimp…and actually, I am a meek lil gal. Maybe you can help me build some confidence then rename something like Xena or She-Woman! See, I‘m young and just haven’t been exposed to a whole lot. I also lived most my life outside on a chain… and that is just no life for a sweetie like me. Some loud noises scare me, and sometimes strangers can make me feel a bit uneasy…that’s all. Nothing some socialization can’t take care of. Real young kids would probably be a bit much for me to handle, but older, gentle children would be great. I really love other dogs and do great with them. In fact, living with a confident dog could help me be confident! I’m fine living without another dog, too, I just need someone who is going to spend a lot of time with me, take me lots of places, and let me sleep inside where it’s warm at night. I also have a great grasp on crate training, which is a pretty wonderful start to everything else you wanna teach me. What do you say, show me some love and help me start a new life?

Sparky Beach

Shiba Inu Mix

Male
11 pounds

Life’s a beach, so why not let the sparks fly! I’m all revved up and ready to go, I am a lil Sparky plug, and I am firing on all cylinders to give you some love! Feisty and full of fun, just looking for some fine tuning. A Shiba mix no doubt, I’ll need a person familiar with our intelligent, lively, and brave nature! I’m loving and loyal, very people focused, super affectionate and I adore attention. I do not, however, adore cats or sharing my goodies—so keep your paws outta my food bowl, ok?! That also means a home with no children for me. I do love to romp and rough house with other dogs and won’t mind sharing my home with a well-matched canine companion. I may have attitude to spare and energy to burn, but I also have some excellent house manners, am already crate trained, ride well in the car ,and know my basic commands. So come on, let me show you what it feels like to be loved!

Sven

Chihuahua + American Eskimo Mix
8 months old
Male
9 pounds

Hallo! Mine name is Sven. I am new to the things that I am seeing here. I try to adjust quickly, but I am really nervous of my new environment, and still find things overwhelming. I like nice and slow introductions, gentle voices, and happy conversations. I am sure this is just a hurdle I have to get over, but it might take me some time. I have had so much uncertainty in my life that it seems unreal for me to have something good and true of my very own. I would love to share my life with children 10+ who can be gentle and kind. I find the company of other dogs enjoyable, and I could even live with cats if they don’t mind the occasional chase. Personally I really want to work on myself: my confidence levels, my training skills, and my interpersonal communication. Communication is the key to any relationship, and I know that if I want to have something that lasts I will need to step up to the plate. I think about these things in my crate at night before I drift off to sleep. It is the only place where I feel really safe and secure because I know it is all mine. I would like to continue my crate work into the future as well. I know I have some lofty goals, but with trial and application I know I can be the best dog any family has ever had. Perhaps someone out there reading this would care to be my mentor?

Sydney

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Golden Retriever Mix
8 years old
Male

Well, I am not as quick as I used to be, but I still got plenty of get-up-and-go! I don’t say I’m slowing down, I just brake a little more before the turns! My hips just aren’t what they used to be, but I still got a race to win! First prize is your heart, and no one is going to take you away from me! It’s a mad dash for love, and I have all the winning features of a first-place dog! I get along great with other dogs, I get along great with cats, and I am doing great with my crate training! I am oh so friendly and people focused, pretty happy-go-lucky until you start messing with my food bowl; that’s when things get serious. So I do need a family without children, where all members are able to understand that I will not share. Now don’t get caught with your shifter in the wrong gear, get down here and meet me in the winner’s circle!

Tajin

German Shepherd + Labrador Retriever Mix

I hope there is room for one more Cali transplant in this beautiful Northwest! I know, I know, I heard it on my way up from LA, about how all these Cali people are invading your state. But I promise to be on my best behavior and get with the NW vibe. I already love the outdoors and communing with nature—I’ll even learn to ride a bicycle, or at least learn how to run beside one. I don’t mind the cooler weather, and the drizzly days are fine with me. I love that the beach is just an hour away, where I can cut loose and feel the sand between my toes—or we can head up to Mt Hood and romp in the snow! I got play play on my mind all day day, so kids that like to get rough and tumble are better for me. I get along with other dogs just great as long as they know I am the boss, but kitty cats are a no-go. I am already crate trained, and my brain is always ready to work—it don’t matter if I’m having a Lab day or a German Shepherd day, learning new things is a blast! So am I Portland enough for you?

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Great Pyrenees Mix
8 years old
Male
71 pounds

These paws were made for walking, and that’s just what I’ll do, one of these days this boy is gonna walk right next to you! I would love to take easy strolls by your side, or just lounge around on the couch by your side, or hang out in the backyard by your side…I think you get my drift: you’ll never get too far without your Walker! I get along with other dogs, but if you got cats they better run when they see me coming! I make no apologies; I just can’t stand those critters. Dog-savvy kids 12+ will be best for me because I take a little time to trust new people and grabby hands are no match for me. As far as my crate training, I have that down. House manners, too; got those covered. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more I want to learn, so I got the time to dedicate to learning all you want to teach me if you are game! Sound like a pretty good deal? Then come on and walk with me!

Whiskey

Labrador Retriever + Husky Mix
1 year old
Male
66 pounds

Ah yes, pour yourself a glass of top shelf Whiskey and let us relax by the fire… Let Brahms and Stravinsky play on the old transistor radio and let this wonderful evening fill our hearts with the utmost joy and satisfaction. Don’t you feel like a true hero of the finest fashion? Doesn’t your soul feel saved? Isn’t your mind at peace? Ah, good… Well, friend, you’ve done the right thing by giving me a loving home… After all, I am a gentleman among gentleman! I enjoy the company of my canine companions, children of all ages, and I even enjoy sharing my home with a feline, so long as they are up for a good time now and then. I may be a gentleman, but I am still a bit of a pup! Crate trained, you ask? I assure you a young man like myself will get no satisfaction from peeing on the rug, so I prefer alone time to be spent in my crate, where I can be sure to keep myself out of trouble. What’s that you ask? Oh, sure I’ll take a few rocks … And remember, I’m the finest Whiskey you’ll ever come across…
