Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Porter
This handsome guy is very energetic and would need a family that would be able to give him plenty of exercise. Make an appointment to meet him at Animal Friends.
Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix | Sex: Male
Age: 1.3 years | Weight: 62 pounds
Arrived: Nov. 10, 202
Porter originally came to Animal Friends through our Humane Investigation Department. He has spent time in loving foster homes, but he is looking for a place to call his own. Porter is very energetic and would need a family that would be able to give him plenty of exercise. Porter is also incredibly smart. Though he already knows his basic manners, Porter is going to need a family who will continue his training, moving forward. Porter can get anxious in certain situations. Our Behavior Department has developed ways to help Porter lower his anxiety and thrive. If you are interested in adopting Porter, we will schedule several appointments and home visits, for you to meet him. This will give you time to get to know him and Porter to learn about you too. Porter would do best in a house rather than an apartment, and would love a fenced-in yard! His new family should have dog experience and Pitbull experience would be preferred!
Each of our dogs has received a thorough medical examination, is current on all appropriate vaccinations (including rabies) and has been microchipped and spayed or neutered.
Animal Friends is open for adoption by appointment only, please email our Adoption team at AdoptionInfo@ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org to set up a time to visit.
Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our dogs in person. A typical adoption can take up to an hour. Please visit at least one hour before closing if you plan to adopt that day.
