Porter is a great dog until he isn't. He needs a house with no other dogs. He has been fine with our cat. He is a great protector and would love to go hiking with you. He will not lick your face but really wants to sniff your eyeballs! We got him as a rescue as a puppy and he is just too temperamental with our other dogs. We had an embarq test done and he is a true mutt though he is 50% pitbull. He is just under 60 pounds but does not think so!
