Passing Porterhouse by would be a big mis-steak! This bouncy boy has a heart of gold and a silly side he'd love to show you.

This playful and polite handsome boy is always sweet, friendly and excited to spend time with his humans. He loves being out for long hikes, smelling all the smells and seeing all the sights. He's a big boy but has been working on his leash skills during ballfield walks and around campus as well as in our TOP (Total Obedience Program) Dog class at APA! He's curious to see people and excited to see other dogs on walks.

Indoors, this curious boy likes staring out the window to check things out. He also enjoys petting and chilling with his foster on the couch and playing with his favorite toys. He also gives big kisses as well! Be careful though, he may come in for a kiss a but instead let out a sneeze on accident.
This goofy pup also loves to roll in the grass and show off his silly side, and he even loves plastic pools in the yard! He loves to show off his sit and stay skills. He is housetrained and does well in his crate. He can be left alone several hours with a comfy bed to lay on, sleeping soundly.

Porterhouse is the sweetest boy with that funny ear and just needs a chance to shine. Come meet him today!
