Meet Porter

Porter is a very handsome smart boy who know how to fetch and catch a ball, loves playing with water from the hose and walks very well on a lead. He is very friendly when meeting new dogs and loves his pats and hugs. sadly he was bitten on the tail by another dog at the pound and as a result half his tail has been amputated. Porter would make a fantastic family dog as he is very gentle with children and only wants to be loved.

Unfortunately during his stay at the pound Porter was bitten on the tail by another dog. As a result he lost the tip of his tail however further investigation by the vets have determined that his tail has been broken further down and there is nerve damage and exposed bone. Sadly this means half of Porter's tail will need to be amputated. Luckily he should make a full recovery and this won't cause him any ongoing problems.
