Meet Portland (ADOPTED!)

**PORTLAND HAS BEEN ADOPTED!** Pal's Place rescue would love to introduce you to five of some of the cutest little puppies we've ever seen! These little guys are approximately ten weeks (as of 8/4/22) and weigh between 10 -15 pounds. They are playful, silly, and oh so adorable! There are two males and three females in this little family. They were rescued from an open-intake shelter in eastern Kentucky with their mama, Princess (also available for adoption). Mom is an amazingly sweet and gentle 40-pound hound mix. Their father is unknown, but the puppies have thick, soft double coats, some with merle markings and some with blues eyes, leading us to believe papa may have been an Aussie mix. An overcrowded, stressful pound is no place for a new mom and pups. We heard their story and brought them up to a safe and caring foster home in Chicago to await meeting their forever families. All the pups in this litter are extraordinarily sweet, curious, playful, and affectionate pups who have inherited mom's exceptional temperament. They will make excellent companions for active families with the time and energy to raise young working breed pups! They get along well with other dogs and are working on their crate training and housebreaking in their foster home. Remember that puppies this age and size need potty breaks every 2-3 hours, along with lots and lots of playtime throughout the day. Please consider if you truly have time for a puppy before applying. This crew is spayed/neutered, up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and started on flea and heartworm prevention. They are ready and anxious to meet their new families! Their adoption fee to the rescue is $475, and they can be seen by appointment after an adoption application has been submitted and approved by the rescue. We expect these puppies will be extremely popular, so get your application in today.
