My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Porter is such a wonderfully easy going dog, we just cannot believe that someone hasn't scooped him up yet! He is not a fan of being left alone for long stretches and he also kind of hates the kennel - but we certainly understand why when you know his past...Porter joined Last Hope after his owner abandoned him, leaving him behind when they moved away.  This wonderfully loving boy deserves the very best in a forever home, and we're excited to introduce you to him! But beware...he's a bit of a couch hog!! Porter loves to put a harness on and go for walks, he can be strong on the leash especially when he sees squirrels!  He is best suited as an only pet in the home, but is great with people of all ages including children.

Porter is around 8 years old now, he would do best with a fence or with someone who already has a daily walking routine. Porter rides in the car like a champ, and he will make a wonderful companion for someone seeking a friendly dog that is moderately active. Porter does have minor head tremors, these occur infrequently and seem to be brought on by change or stress. They do not hurt him or cause him pain, but are something to be aware of (he has been under the care of our veterinarian and had this reviewed extensively)  

Porter's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives PLUS a free obedience course at Cedar Run Pet Boarding & Daycare in Hiawatha.  Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives.  Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit.  Please submit an adoption application on our website for consideration,

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.
