Underdogs Rock! Rescue

We are a small Portland, Oregon based 501c3 organization rescuing dogs from the over crowded shelters in Southern California, Alabama, and Hawaii. We foster the dogs until they are healthy and help them find their forever homes! Contact us at [email protected] work directly with Rescue Groups in Southern California to rescue dogs who are on their last days in the high-kill shelters. Because our dogs are in Foster Homes we get to know the dogs personalities and needs. As we know the dogs well and how they do in a home environment, we do a great job in matching families with the right dog, and the right family for the dog!

Meet Shayla

Celebrate the holidays with Shayla, a 9-month-old girl eager to become the heart of your home. While we suspect she's a Terrier-Chihuahua mix, one thing's for certain – Shayla is ready to find her forever family. She is a festive delight, her spirit as vibrant as the holiday season, all bundled into a 14 lbs. body.   Though Shayla is still mastering socialization, once she opens up, get ready to be greeted by the cutest toe-tapping dance and full-body tail wags. Shayla can be a little slow to reveal her inner social butterfly, but when she does, she makes sure her family knows they are the absolute best thing ever and has a personality far larger than you could imagine. Shayla will need a family who has the time to take on a curious puppy.    Ideally suited to dogs her size or larger, Shayla's boundless enthusiasm may be a bit much for smaller friends, and although she has coexisted with cats previously, a dog-savvy cat home is a must if there is one in the house.   Shayla has already excelled in basic training – she's kennel trained, sleeps soundly through the night, house trained, walks wells on a leash, and follows basic commands. Shayla adores snuggles (especially under blankets), winter wonderland walks, tasty treats and sharing toys in a jolly play session. She's a unique blend of spunk and sweetness, ready to be the star of your festivities.   If you're prepared for a furry addition who understands the unique needs of Terriers then this holiday season, give the gift of a forever home to Shayla and experience the magic of unconditional love.   To see about a meet with Shayla please complete an online Underdogs Rock Rescue adoption application at https://underdogsrock.org/adoption-application Shayla is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations and preventative. She is being fostered in Hillsboro, OR.
