Arrival Story:
We adopted Porter from a CT rescue group when he was 2 1/2 years old. He had a rough first 2 1/2 years. When he came to us he did not even know his name even though we were told that his name was Porter. He also had never been inside a house. He was not housebroken and he was like a big puppy. Shortly after adopting Porter we noticed that he had a very raspy voice. We found out that he had been devocalized by the breeder that owned him. Evidently we were told that she matter of factly had all of her dogs devocalized by a CT veterinarian. Unfortunatley due to this inhumane surgery Porter has had to have corrective surgery due to scar tissue that had formed. He was having trouble breathing. He still coughs and gags and the vet says his breathing will probably only be 71% of normal. But he is now in a loving home that will take care of him.

sweet, loveable and affectionate Porter loves to give wet newfy kisses to all.
