Hi, my name is Porter (MayanChocolateChiliPorter). I am a svelte 11½-pound, 6-year-old spayed female smooth-coat Chihuahua mix. I have a beautiful shiny coat and the sweetest little face. I came from an environment where I was not socialized well so I am very shy and careful meeting new people. I am working on leash training but it’s going to take patience to get me to being a trail-dog, so I will require a fenced area for me to go potty. With that said, I am not house trained but with frequent trips outside, I will easily go outside to do my business — so it would be great if my person is at home to keep this positive reinforcement going! I am a higher energy little girl so an active person would be nice but of course giving me attention is my real preference. I wouldn’t mind being the only dog in the house since I like being around my person, always. I sleep in a crate quiet as a mouse at night but I would much prefer to sleep by my person (crates make me sort of unhappy even with a raw carrot snack). Because my foster family says I am so loving and desperately want to please, I know I would be a great companion to someone that would like to help me continue on my journey to trust, to learn, and to grow into the perfect dog. I will need an adult home or one with children over 12 years old. If I sound like someone you’d like to meet, please contact my friends at SBRET and mention my name, Porter! I am up to date on vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
