Portobella is such a sweetheart. She is a pit bull mix but on the smaller side for her breed. She's definitely got some muscle on her though! She came into the shelter absolutely terrified and depressed. She's been through a lot but since going into a foster home, she has made SO much progress and has learned to love life again! Portobella is still in her energetic young years and needs LOTS of exercise and stimulation. She loves long walks, hikes, and going on runs!! Portobella currently lives with a dog in her foster home but she needs very slow and controlled introductions to any other animals she may be living with. Portobella needs an active owner that will take her on all of the outdoor adventures! Due to her past trauma, Portobella has some minor resource guarding with food around other animals. She can be dog reactive (but not aggressive) and needs an owner that is willing to work with her on her reactivity when seeing/meeting new dogs. She just has lots of energy and gets so excited to meet friends that it comes out as reactivity. She can be a little shy when meeting new people but with reassurance she's been doing amazing and has turned a 180 since her first days in the shelter! After getting her energy out with a good run, Portobella loves to curl up on your lap and cuddle. Portobella is a wonderful dog and just wants to be your lifetime adventure and running partner!
