German Shepherd Mix
1 year, 4 mo. old
55.6 pounds

Oh, um hi, I'm Lonnie. I'm a little shy, but I'll open up to you once I get to know you. My handler says that I am a very friendly and loving girl who can always cheer him up after he's had a rough day.

I love to play fetch, go for walks, and go for runs, and I hope to find a forever family that has time to play with me or take me on adventures. A yard would be awesome too!

I'm very loyal and I do well around kids, but for some reason I prefer male dogs over female dogs.

If I sound like the pooch for you, please call my friends at the kennel at (503) 981-2570 and they can schedule a time for you to come visit me!

Mini-Australian Shepherd
5 years old
27 pounds

Note from Jack's handler:
Jack is a swell boy. He likes to cuddle-up with people and roll over for a belly rub. He likes to run around off leash if you are running with him in the yard, He is a huge people person. He has some characteristics of a puppy but has the respect and wisdom of a 5-year old dog.

He has lots of years ahead of him to come, but he just needs his second chance to come and show him what it’s like to be loved and cared for once again.

Call the kennel at (503) 981-2570 to schedule a visit.

Male  Pit / Lab Mix
5 years old, 66 pounds


Hey there, my name is King! I came up to Project POOCH on a rescue bus from California because my former shelter was too crowded. I was so brave on this long journey, and when I arrived at Project POOCH, I was happy and smiling!

The youth say that I'm shy at first, but then I can be pretty adventurous. I tried something called "agility" for the first time the other day, and I was nervous initially, but then it turned out to be pretty interesting!

I love to follow the youth around and go wherever they go. I am hoping to find a caring and affectionate family, and I will give them plenty of love in return. If you'd like to meet me, please call the kennel at (503) 981-2570 to schedule a visit.

Staffordshire Terrier Mix
57 pounds
2 years old

Hi everyone, I'm Sasha, and I'm a very good girl! I love playing with ALL the dogs at Project POOCH; it's so great to make friends of all sizes and breeds.

I also really enjoy being around people, and I do well with kids! I'm a social butterfly, so crowds don't bother me either.

Even though I'm enjoying spending time with the youth and the dogs here, I would love to find a family of my own to be a part of. I'm learning my commands pretty quickly, so I think you will be very impressed with me when you visit.

Please come see me soon! Call the kennel at (503) 981-2570 to schedule a visit.

BuckleyAKC Canine Good Citizens
Male Labrador Retriever
2 years old, 60 pounds

Woof woof, I'm Buckley! It's great to meet you. I've been at Project POOCH for some time now, and I get along very well with the youth and the other dogs here. They are so much fun to play with! I think I'm ready to go to my forever home though.

I was born with a condition called "mega esophagus", which made it hard for me to digest my food initially. Luckily, the vet did some sort of procedure which really helped me a lot, so now I can digest my food properly! For the best results, I need to eat several small meals throughout the day. I'm used to this, as the youth have trained me so well.

I'm hoping to go to a dog-savvy family who will love me and do all the normal doggie things with me - playing, walking, teaching me new tricks - but also give me a little extra attention around meal time. The youth say that I know all sorts of commands and tricks, so please come visit me and I will show you.

Ready to meet this handsome pup? Please call the kennel at (503) 981-2570 to schedule a visit.

Cattle Dog/Coon Hound Mix
4-1/2 years old
55 pounds

It's lovely to meet you; I am Leah! Everyone says I just have the biggest, sweetest smile.

I really enjoy running and playing - I'm full of energy and always ready to go. It would be wonderful to go to a family that will take me on walks and runs because I think that would be such a blast.

While I do tend to get overly excited around small kids, I would be great with older ones. I hope you'll come visit me soon!

Lab Mix

Hi friends, I'm Bandit, a 1-1/2 year old Lab Mix! My favorite thing ever is playing! I love to play with the youth and the other dogs here, and I'm always ready for a game of fetch.

My other hobbies include walking, eating, and relaxing with my young handler after a fun-filled day.

Stop on by and we can play ball together! Maybe you'll even fall in love with me and want to add me to your family because I am such a good dog. I'll be available for adoption as soon as I pass my CGC test, for which I am studying hard.

Can't wait to meet you soon.Please call the kennel at (503) 981-2570 to schedule a visit.
