Porter is 100% sweetheart. This 8ish year old Terrier boy has been through some trials, and has remained a consummate gentleman throughout. One of Porter's greatest attributes is his friendly demeanor--he is very polite when greeting new people and new canine friends. He is house-trained, light as a feather on the end of a leash, and likes sleeping in his crate.
Porter is a true Terrier in the way that he is always curious what is on the other side of the fence/gate/etc--for this reason, solid fencing will be important. When Porter first arrived in our home he had separation anxiety, but this behavior subsided as soon as he realized he was safe. Porter likes to chase cats, but in a playful way, not in a mean way. He could definitely learn to live with cats. He is non-reactive to chickens. He has no food guarding issues.
Porter's outgoing personality make him a take-everywhere dog. Walking, shopping, road-trips, hikes--he wants to go! He is a fabulous companion and at about 25 lbs, the perfect size to tote along. Some of Porter's favorite things: wet food; being wrapped up in a blanket and rocked like a baby; perfecting the art of gently taking treats; sleeping in. We love Porter and hope he finds a home where he receives as much love as he gives.
Porter is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. To meet or adopt Porter, fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.
