Ernie: Hello world! I know you’ve been dying to meet me. My name is Ernie and I am seeking out my forever soulmate(s). I am about 3 years old, very handsome, neutered and UTD on my vaccines. Up until recently, I have had a rough go of it. I spent six months in a crate, where people neglected to feed me correctly or treat my fleas which resulted in a nasty skin infection, loss of muscle mass and my hair falling out. A nice lady saved me and nursed me back to health. I have put on some weight (I LOVE food, it really motivates me) and my beautiful coat is returning. I know sit, lay down, stand and I am a big goofy love bug. I would appreciate a home that will let me snuggle on the bed. I need a home where I can be the number one and only dog, at least for now. I like kids but since I need some training, I would do best with conscientious teens. I am a little nervous, due to my past but once I meet you and you toss me treats, you’re my new best friend. I walk pretty good on a lead but need a Saint experienced handler who will commit to my training. An obedience class sounds like loads of fun. I need to spend some time in a safe space to learn that other dogs won’t hurt me and that I shouldn’t have to dominate them. Cats? No thank you. It’s likely that I won’t be a big fan of chickens either unless they are in my food bowl. My dream home is this: a family who will give me time to adjust to my environment—it takes me awhile to get used to new digs and a couple of days to get comfortable, a quiet home would be a plus, and a nice yard with a 6 foot fence. I really love my doggy door—that way I don’t have to bug you every time I need to go outside. I need someone who spends a lot of time at home. I love walks, car rides, I am very inquisitive and consider myself a champion counter surfer. I guess, I need some help with that..but…food!!! I have a big bark to help scare off the bad guys but I don’t use it randomly. Currently, I need someone to manage and guide me as no one from my past has really cared enough to teach me what I need to be a good canine citizen. With a little time and patience, I am ready to be your best friend. Please fill out an adoption application at application. 12/8/2017

Bailey: Meet Bailey! Bailey came to us about a month ago, scared and in need of some serious TLC. She has made great progress since coming to us. The vet has estimated her age at about 5 years old but she acts more like she is 2 or 3. She is a more energetic Saint with a lot of get up and go. We nicknamed her Tigger because she bounces around like he does, especially when she needs to go outside. She is super sweet and loves people. She knows her basic commands but like a lot of Saints, she only does them when she wants to (or for a treat!), so she needs a family willing to work with her on her consistency. She is currently enrolled in obedience in Salem, OR for the next 5 weeks and anyone considering adopting her is welcome to attend a class with her and her foster. She is a quick learner and is working hard at doing what is asked of her. She is very strong and at times can pull hard on the leash. She needs someone with Saint Bernard experience or experience with a giant breed dog, who will provide her with consistency and gentle correction. She would do best with children age 12 and older, only because she would accidently knock little ones down. She lacks spatial awareness but she is learning to be more careful in her surroundings. She needs a home with a 6 foot fenced yard. Bailey needs to be an indoor/outdoor dog. She needs to be inside with her family, cuddling on the couch or bed, however, if you tell her no, she will lay close to you on the floor. She would do well with a family that is frequently home. She has done great inside when left alone, but her foster family has two male Saints to keep her company and she would do well with another younger dog of larger size that likes to play. She will go in a crate but she does not like it much. She loves to play tug of war with her foster brother. She enjoys quiet time, but loves to go on outings. She is great in the car. Bailey does well with her foster’s cat, but as a precaution they occasionally gently remind her to be nice to the kitty, even though she has never done anything to her. She is a great eater with no food aggression and takes treats from your hand gently. Bailey is full of life. Anyone who wants to share their love and make her their next sweet baby will get love back tenfold. Bailey is housebroken, microchipped, UTD on vaccines and spayed. If you are interested in Bailey, please fill out an application. If you have an app on file, please contact Allie Kane at 503-502-8993 or email at sixofswords@msn.com to express interest. 11/6/2017.
