Portia - Smiling Sweetheart
of a Dog Seeks New Home
Susan Daffron talks to Lori Searfoss of the of the Poundhounds Adoption Welfare Society (PAWS) in Ohio about a 2-year old dog named Portia. When you look at Portia's photo, you can see what a happy girl she is! This dog was rescued from "death row" at a high kill shelter. Portia had been found as a stray when she was very young, and taken to the shelter. But she was such a happy, playful, affectionate dog, the dog warden just "couldn't do it" when Portia's time ran out. So PAWS was called in to save the day.
Portia has been at PAWS for quite a long time and is extremely well crate trained. She loves to run and play with other dogs, since she has lots of energy. A volunteer has been working with her on some of the basics like "sit" but she will need a bit of an obedience refresher and solid leadership from the people in her new home. Lori says Portia would make a great "jogging buddy" for someone because she just loves her walks. But she also likes to crash on the sofa with you and watch TV. Although Portia probably shouldn't go to a home with cats, she seems to get along great with most dogs and people.
