July 22, 2015: I've been adopted!

Lovely gal Portia arrived in our care on June 8 and is doing very well in foster care.

This social girl is friendly and has nice house manners.  She knows basic commands and is a sweet girl who loves attention.
Portia has lived with another dog and gets along with well mannered dogs.  She could join a home with another four legged playmate, or she would be perfectly content to be the only dog.

She has never lived with cats, but she does chase rabbits, etc. so a home without small animals is needed.

Portia is best suited to an adult only family. She can become over stimulated when around children.  Homes where children live or visit often will not be considered.


Born on October 19, 2009 this lovely girl is 5 years old, has been spayed and is current on her vaccines.  We have completed bloodwork and everything looks great.

Portia is taking estrogen once weekly for urinary incontinence, a fairly common condition in spayed females.  No worries, the meds are effective in completely controlling the bladder leakage. She has no accidents since taking this medication. With a simple does once a week she is problem free!

Portia is being fostered in the Hamilton area and her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies.
