Hi there, I'm Porter – I'm a 35 pound furry bundle of love :-) I've got a super-sweet disposition and my favourite thing to do is snuggle next to you on the sofa so I can get lots of pats and attention.
I'm not quite sure what kind of dog I am. I mean, I'm just like your typical dog with four legs and a tail, but I'm a bit of a mystery mix – I'm going to guess that I'm an Aussie Shepherd and some sort of Terrier. I'm an older boy, maybe around 6 or 7 – I don't know for sure because I can't count :-) So I'm past the crazy puppy stage and I'm calm and quiet in the house.
When I'm not flaked out on the sofa, I like to play outside with my foster doggie brothers and sister. I get along well with them, although one of my foster brothers picks on me a bit. I'm not sure why, because I'm a really easy going guy and don't cause any trouble. I guess he's just jealous of my good looks :-)
Although I'm old enough to know at least the basic dog commands, my previous owner never took the time to teach me anything other than how to walk on a leash and to not pee in the house. (I had a few accidents when I first arrived in my foster home, but it's all good now :-) I would love to go to obedience class with you so I can learn stuff all the other dogs know how to do, like Sit and Down and Stay. Oh, and I also don't mind being in my crate – I sleep in it every night, and it's so comfy that I don't make a peep till everyone gets up in the morning.
I'm in great shape overall, but some of my front teeth are damaged. Lots of dogs where I come from have teeth like me – it happened because I was so infested with fleas that I chewed and chewed at the itchy spots and my teeth got worn down. But not to worry! I'm flea-free now, and the people at Catahoula Rescue Ontario have been in touch with a vet who's going to take a look at my teeth and suggest the best way to repair them. CRO will pick up the tab for any dental work that I need done – how cool is that?!
One more thing you should know about me – I like to chase cats. Even though I'd have fun living with a cat, the cat might not like it so much. So if you want to adopt me, it would be best if you don't have a cat. I don't mind living with other dogs, I'm used to it. But I don't think I'd mind if I was the only dog in the house so I could get all the love and pats and attention. Because like I said before, I love getting pats and attention!
So that's pretty much everything about me. If you think you'd like to adopt me, send in an application and my people will get back to your people :-)
Porter is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested (negative).
