As soon as our GSP Rescue of NJ foster, Maxeen, went home with her new FURever family, we contacted Pointer Rescue, Org, to let them know we were ready to welcome another foster into our home. They told us that they had a female pointer named Lacey, who was in danger so we told them we’d foster her. A few minutes later, they sent another message that they had a safe place for Lacey, but a young male who was found as a stray was just days away from being euthanized in a high kill shelter in North Carolina. We immediately responded that we would foster him. I asked what his name was… Porter! 🍺
Porter’s transport was set, and he was to arrive in New Jersey on December 15th.
Porter in the NC shelter:
Porter was picked up at the shelter in North Carolina by a PRO volunteer and taken to a veterinarian.
Porter in the veterinarian’s office in North Carolina:
Great friends of ours signed up to do the last two legs of the transport and bring him directly to our home!
With a name like Porter, we had to give him a big Liver Killer welcome of beer-themed toys and even a beer themed collar!
Porter was completely emaciated and exhausted from his travels.
Porter was “weighed-in” on our antique scale.
Porter did nothing but sleep for almost an entire week. He then began to show interest in playing with Whiskey when he started to gain some strength.
On January 2, Porter began to have cluster seizures. After several months of medication adjustments and trips to the ER, we decided that Porter needed us, and had already found his FURever family. On May 9, 2019 we officially adopted Porter!
