Hi I'm Portia and I'm a bubbly, happy-go-lucky Mastiff x who is almost 5 years old . I love people and enjoy introducing myself to new friends whenever I can. I'm cheeky as I'll jump up to give you a kiss on the face but I'm learning that it's more polite to say hi with all 4 of my paws on the floor.
Everyone thinks I'm part greyhound as I'm fast like one when I do zoomies around the yard - they laugh at my antics and say I'm a clown. Once I get over my excitement meeting you I will settle down and show you the sweet side of my personality. I love to sit for treats to show you I'm a good girl and enjoy receiving praise.
I'm currently in care with approximately 100 other dogs at a boarding facility. I have a few canine male playmates whom I play rough and tumble games with all day. My besties were Leo, Django and Dobby - I was a good luck charm for them as they were each adopted by wonderful families. It's now my turn to find a family of my very own - I have been waiting patiently like a good girl for a very long time!
I would love a family who will spend time teaching me to live in a family home again as I've lived in boarding for most of my life. I'll need a refresher on my house manners as it's been 3.5 years since I've lived in a home! I'm so eager to please you and am treat focused so it won't take me long. Because I love to do zoomies my wish list includes a fenced grassed yard (6 foot colourbond) so I can run around before chilling out with you for the day. I would also enjoy advanced training or agility to show off how clever I am.
I would suit a couple or single person who will spend time walking me or even train me to run with them. I love people of all ages, however I'd likely knock over toddlers when I'm bounding around so I am better matched with teenagers or adults. I'm best suited to a home without pocket pets or cats and I would love to be allowed inside as I thrive in the company of my people.
If you have a special place in your heart for a beautiful girl like Portia (who has waited patiently for 3.5 years for adoption) then please contact Jo on email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0427 695 104 (after business hours) . Portia is in foster care near Morriset, NSW (Central Coast)
Portia's adoption fee is $250 and includes her desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, microchipping, and lifetime registration. You can see all our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au
(1) The first step is to phone or email the foster carer listed on the pet's profile (scroll to the bottom on the description). They can answer your questions and will ask you about the sort of home you are offering and may ask you to fill in our Adoption Questionnaire http://www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au/adopt/adoptionquestionnaire.docx
(2) If the questionnaire is approved you can arrange to meet the pet, usually at the foster carer's home or nearby.
(3) If that goes well we will arrange a property check so we can verify that your home and yard are suitable for the pet you've selected. We will ask to see photo ID.
(4) If both sides agree, then you can pay for and adopt your new family member! The two week trial begins on the day of adoption.
