Notes from Porter's caretakers:

He is mostly a lazy pup, but has made it clear that a fenced yard is on his short list. His best friend would be someone who will spend time with him on daily walks, short hikes when it's not too hot, camping, letting him join in on car rides and preferably not leaving him home alone more than a few hours at a time.
