Sweet, wiggly, affectionate and playful once she has a minute to warm up, this baby found herself at Clackamas County Dog Services after being brought in as a stray. Melo is a go-slow girl who prefers a mellow home and to be handled or touched on her own terms by those she trusts — treats speed this process right along, as well a secure dog who can show her the way.

Oh. My. Heck aka Heck

This dude loves car rides, walks around the neighborhood and digging himself into cozy little blanket nests. Working on his house training and learning quickly, Mnemonic adjusts quickly and is a happy, sweet boy who just wants to be by your side.


There are so many wonderful things to say about our new pup Loo! She is a 1 year old old Brindle Shepherd -Terrier mix. The combination of the best of these breeds is what makes up Loo! She is a beautiful brindle with dark expressive eyes. And oh so smart!


Blake is all terrier and lots of fun! He is just the happiest little pup! Probably because he knows this is his chance at a new forever family! He is ready to give lots of love and lots of laughs to those he loves. Blake is so comical and loves to toss his toys and get you involved.


Roony 6-8 year old male Black Lab mix Roony was surrendered in Star Valley because his family could no longer care for him. He is a little older and bit grey in the face but he is super friendly, plays well with other dogs, enjoys chasing tennis balls, and loves kids!


Brownie and her siblings were originally from Idaho Falls where they were bred for profit. Their owners had found themselves in some trouble resulting in the mom and the puppies headed to the shelter.
