Brow came to us from California. He is a 7-year-old German Shepard who isn’t quite sure of his age. When excited he will act like a puppy, but once things settle down he wants nothing but your love and attention. Given time he will even start to bring you his favorite toy/bucket. Brow would love a home that will allow him time to settle and adjust, as he can be guarded with new people.  He would do best in a home with no cats or small dogs, he can be a little of a grouchy grandpa at times so mellow dogs would be best.  Hamlin will come with 2-private training sessions to help his new family get him started right in his new home.  One of these training sessions is being generously donated by Marvin Pierce Dog Teacher.

If you are interested in meeting Brow, please email Newberg Animal Shelter at with a completed Adoption Application. We will contact applicants to schedule a meet and greet.

We focus on finding the best match for adoptable animals and are not first-come first-served.

With the current concerns about COVID-19, Newberg Animal Shelter will be adjusting procedures and protocols for the protection of customers and staff.

We are open for adoptions by appointment only.  This will allow staff to sanitize between each customer.

Due to limited staffing, limited appointments, and the high volume of applications we are receiving right now, we may not be able to schedule appointments for all applicants.

Please submit an application via email or fax including the names of all of the dogs you are interested in meeting.

Keep an eye on the website.  If the dogs you have applied for are no longer available, they have been adopted by another applicant.  If you see another dog you are interested in meeting, please submit a new application.

Thank you for your patience.

We are located at:
1591 S Sandoz Rd

If you have another dog in the home, we require you, your family members, and your existing dog(s) to come and meet the dog at the shelter.
