Weight: 22 pounds  

Health: Porter is in good health.

Demeanor: Gentle, even-tempered, affectionate, playful, obedient, somewhat timid, protective/territorial (door bells or front door knocks. Porter likes people. He is a little cautious/timid at first, but quickly warms up and enjoys saying hello and being petted.  

Likes: Spending time outside or with his people, bully sticks, taking walks, playing  

Manners: House-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, does well in a car, obedient, has basic training. He comes when called and responds to verbal corrections.  

Activity level: Slightly active, apartment appropriate  

Bio: Here's what Porter's foster mom says about him, "He is such a gentle and mellow soul. He is starting to settle in and show his true character. He is being more friendly towards people and less shy, loves to play with someone and on his own. He enjoys the dog park, but doesn't really play with other dogs (maybe he just hasn't found the right one yet!). He is crate trained, but does like to whine/bark for just a bit after being crated. He loves himself a good bully stick!"  

Porter would love a family that would allow him to spend a lot of time outside or on a screened porch. He loves to go on long walks and take in everything. He would be great in a home that can give him lots of attention and doesn't keep him cooped up in a crate all day. He would be great companion to anyone of any age.  

The adoption fee for Porter is $350.00 which includes altering, heartworm testing, vaccines and micro-chipping. We accept applications from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. We also require a $20 application fee. Email with questions.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our pets are fostered in private foster homes. Meet and greets are available but must be scheduled with the potential adopter and foster family. We do host different adoption events at local stores when fosters and their foster dogs can attend.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a very thorough process. We ask that people fill out our adoption application and submit to both a veterinary reference check where we call their vet to check on the care they give their own personal pets, and a home visit where one of our volunteers does a home inspection. Our adoption coordinator will also call the references that we require a potential adopter to list on the application. These references must not be family members. Our group bases adoption fees on the age and pedigree of the particular dog. We accept small Boston Terrier mixes into our rescue, as well as purebred Boston Terriers. Adopters also sign an adoption contract which is very thorough and requires they give the dog back to us if ever they cannot care for the dog any longer.
