My story

Thank you for your interest in adopting from Portsmouth Humane! We are often asked specific details about the pets in our care, such as if they get along with dogs, cats or children. Our Animal Care Team (ACT) does its best to learn the preferences of each pet and make recommendations based on our experience and information from the previous home. If you'd like to know more about this, or any of our other pets, we invite you to schedule an appointment to meet them. The ACT can provide you with first-hand information on the personality of the adoptable animals. The ACT will be able to recommend pets that are a good fit for your family, as we recognize that each animal and home is unique. If you currently own a dog, our team will schedule a time for you to bring them in to meet the dog you are interested in adopting. This dog is available for foster if you are interested in fostering, please call or text 757-414-6178. Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 64.8 Age: 3yrs 2mths 3wks
