Mr. Porkchop

Get ready, get set, let’s play! Hi, my name is Mr. Porkchop! They tell me that I am a terrier mix, but I think that means ‘adorable.’

I am a very active boy who loves to play with my tennis ball, other dogs, going on long walks and getting belly rubs. I also know how to sit and shake.

Because of my size. I may not be good with small children but I love everyone. I am a super smart boy who can learn tricks fast! Please consider me to be your forever fur baby.

Mr. Porkchop is a 1.5-year-old terrier mix.

Visit Mr. Porkchop at the Helping Strays shelter.
