Description: 
Porter is a 2 year old Fila, English Mastiff Mix. He is a very big boy, with a very big heart. He is black and just a stunning boy. He is very sweet but is leary of new people and would need a home that understands fila temperment. He is very mellow for a fila mix, but does need an understanding. Porter came to us from a family who could no longer care for him. He was raised with kids from 1 year to 14 years old, but we do not suggest he go into a home with young kids due to his size, he will play and bound around and we are scared he could knock someone smaller over. He was extreamly gentle with his kids and family. Porter was mostly an outside dog so he has since learned what life is like indoors. He is learning basic manners and doing great. He is such a great guy! Porter is a sweet guy and warms up fast, he is leary of new people but with a little food he is more then happy to say hi. He does apear to be a little more timid of men, then women. But will warm up in a few min either way. He will be a wonderful and devoted dog to a great home. He loves to play, any game will do. And can be just as much of a couch potato as well. Porter is up to date on his shots, and deworming. He also is crate trained, and working on house breaking. He is leash trained, and knows Sit, Down, Stay, Shake, Give, And a few other commands. He will be altered before placement. He is good with other dogs, and cats too, and even made friends with our livestock and rabbits. If you would like more information on Porter, please let us know. Also if you would like more info on the breed please let us know as well. We are asking a 250.00 adoption fee to help cover the cost of his alter, vaccinations, and care while he is here.
