    Porter can’t wait to snuggle with you

    Porter is a true snuggle bug. He’s the gentlest and most cuddly dog that you can ever meet. He adores company and loves being around people and other dogs alike. He especially loves his foster human siblings 4 and 5 years old, and though they handle him like the teddy bear that he looks like, he has no issue, letting them hug him without even a bark or a nibble. Porter loves people so much that he does need to be around them constantly and while he is ok being crated, he does need to be in line of sight to someone at night and doesn’t do very well when left alone, calling out constantly. Perhaps another dog sibling may help his loneliness if no humans can be around.
    Despite this, Porter has come a long way since contracting parvo and being on IV. He was a shy dog who has blossomed into a healthy inquisitive pup always ready to steal stuffies for extra play, looking at you with his puppy eyes knowing he will be forgiven. His quarantine time however has set him back in the potty training department and while he mostly uses puppy pads or goes outside when taken, he does need some dedicated training in order to solidify proper behaviour. While he walks well on leash he is a bit scared initially and has never used the bathroom while walking. He is probably too occupied from smiling at his many admirers, dogs and humans of which he has plenty.

    With some training, Porter will be your best companion for life.
