Are you looking for an active, goofy, curious, friendly, excited, playful, loving, and smart pup? Then come meet Porterhouse! 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. 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 he will sit for treats. He also gives big kisses as well! 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 house-trained and does well in his crate. He can be left alone several hours with a comfy pad to lay on, sleeping soundly.

Porterhouse would love supportive and understanding adopters in a calm home who can continue his leash and home training. He would love a big yard to roam and ideally love lots of brain games and adopters who will take him outdoors, whether it is for hikes, runs, camping and play time!

Porterhouse is the sweetest boy with that funny ear and just needs a chance to shine! Follow him on Instagram @mighty_busterbaxter512 and come meet him today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
