Porkloin is just the sweetest pup. He's a puppy at heart and has a playful spirit, but is very easy to walk on a leash. He wants to shower his people with kisses and snuggles, loves to go on trips to the park, hang out on the couch or go for a walk - as long as he's doing something with you, Porkloin is one happy little guy! This angel of a pocket pittie sits for treats, rides wonderfully in the car, loves to give kisses and his tail never stopped wagging. He loves a routine and can get antsy in the afternoon right before his walk/dinner time (4-5:30pm), but if you give him a toy or something to distract him, he will calm down.

When on walks, Pork is very easy. He only freezes up if another dog semi-close to him and becomes reactive to him. His foster usually keeps a 10 foot bubble with him on walks. It's very rare that he becomes reactive. He is always crated when his foster leaves the house. He usually whines and barks when his foster leaves, but that only lasts for a few minutes and he settles in to wait for his beloved friends to return. He is also a perfectly house-trained gentleman. He won't even bug his foster to go outside when she's trying to sleep in! He only had a couple of accidents in his crate when he was left alone (in the first week), but he's not had an accident since then.

Pork is a great security dog, he will alert you when someone approaches the door! He's also a wonderful little shadow that will follow you around the house. He has skin allergies and must take medication for it. Come meet Porkloin, he'd love to shower you with kisses and snuggles!
