Get To Know Porsha

Hello there ladies and gentlemen
I’m Porsha, a 2.5-year-old female American Staffy X.

I have only been here a red-hot minute, but I’m already SO out of my comfort zone, it’s not funny 🙁

I can’t settle, I can’t sleep, I can’t…be me. Every time I hear a noise, I worry and I just cannot wait to feel comfortable in a home again and feel loved and secure.

I’m a very loving and happy lady when I feel comfortable. When I’m feeling happy I’ll be doing zoomies past you and then stopping mid-zoomie for a cuddle…you’ll notice my big pearly white teeth smiling back at you and my tail will be going crazzzy.

I’m too stressed at present to make any dog friends at the shelter. I have lived with another dog in the past, but I will need PLENTY of time to settle into my new home before I’m introduced to other doggos. When it comes time for me to meet another dog, this should be done slowly and on-lead at first and my daily walkies should be somewhere quiet, away from the hustle and bustle and dog-populated areas as this can be quite confronting for me.

I don’t think I’m the right pooch for younger children…whilst I know basic commands, I can be a bit jumpy and I’m a bit of a chunky lady and don’t realise my own size at times.

If you have plenty of time to help me feel comfortable in my new home and help me learn how to enjoy life to the fullest again, please apply for me here

Our website updates the availability of our dogs in real time. There is a chance that while you are travelling to the Home to meet a particular dog, he or she may be involved in the adoption process or already adopted. You can phone ahead to enquire about a dog you are interested in between the hours of 11am and 4pm but we cannot place dogs on hold over the phone. Please review our Adoption Process or complete an Adoption Questionnaire prior to your visit.
