Porter’s the pointer for you!

Animal ID: 451456

Volunteer: Robert M.

How handsome is this guy? 2-year-old Pointer mix, Porter, was brought to us by a good Samaritan and immediately became a staff and volunteer favorite. Though he can be a little shy initially, Porter is quick to warm up and show how sweet, calm and well-behaved he is. Oh, and this guy’s smart, too! Porter already knows “sit” and “lay down.”

Read on for more info and to learn why Canine Companion volunteer, Robert, has chosen Porter as his volunteer pick…

What do you like best about his personality?
“Porter is a very loyal and obedient dog who loves people when he gets to know them.”

What first drew you to your pick?
“Porter was fearful and shy when I first met him, but it was really cool watching him respond and slowly warm up to the point that we are best friends now! This guy just needs a little time is all, then you’ll see his wonderful personality come shining through.”

Is there something special about the way your pick looks?
“His color pattern of white and some black is very attractive.”

What is his coolest/silliest/most unique trait?
“Because he is a pointer, he is a big-time scent hound! He can follow a scent and keep walking at a good pace, making him a great walker!”

Anything else you’d like to add?
“Porter always comes when you call and he will sit by your side very obediently when you are sitting or on a walk and stop for a break. He is always making eye contact with you, and again, stays right by your side when together!”

This well-behaved favorite is available for adoption at our Oceanside Campus. Come on by and meet Porter today!
