Meet Porter

Lovely natured boy, very bouncy as we had to shave off his coat due to long term neglect and he now thinks he is a smooth coated. The poor boy had nests of fleas in him and he had not been able to scratch himself as his coat was so thick and matted. He has come out of this neglect with a happy bouncy confident disposition, is now house trained and is great with kids and other dogs. Walks well on a lead and loves to socialising. We took him to a recent fundraiser and he just loved everyone and was a huge hit as he was so well behaved and bounced off everyone and sat down with the kids and gave them kisses and paws. He just loves to be loved and gives back every bit of attention that he receives twofold. He needs to be an inside dog as he will not cope with being locked out. Every night he goes into his bed in the laundry and not a sound is heard until his door is opened in the morning.

Porter was adopted on 11 April 2007 after 1 weeks in foster care
