Biography

Porter is looking for an active person to be his new person. He loves snow, water, the mountains. He loves to run and play in all the outdoor places, but he is also relaxed at home after a morning walk & doesn't need a crazy amount of exercise to be a good boy in the house. He gets along with many dogs, but must be introduced on a leashed walk to be sure they will get a long. I have had porter since he was 9 mo. He came to me with insecurity based aggression. I was single when I got him & when my life dramatically changed to include children we were still learning his behavior & took professional training with him to help him be his best. His behavior has improved greatly, but he has proven to be unpredictable around children, though he has not hurt a child, he should not be in a home with them or in a home who has children over regularly. He requires an owner who will give him direction & be consistent with training & commands. A very skilled dog trainer evaluated him and indicated he would make an especially great dog for someone who wants to become a dog trainer. We love him so much & want to find a good home for him.
