Chris Young is out on the road most days…but he has much satisfaction at home, too, thanks to his new puppy.
Porter, a 5-month-old German Shepherd, has even become quite the celebrity himself, with more than 48,000 followers on his official Porter the Dog Instagram page.
Young says…”He definitely knows who feeds him, first of all,” “He definitely knows that I’m his person … He’s very attached, so I can be in a room full of people and most of the time he’ll be sitting with me.”
“He’s very, very quiet for a dog. About the only time he really and truly barks is when he really needs to go out,”.”
Young is taking things slow with Porter as he gets acclimated to life with a country superstar. Soon, the pup may even learn how to tour!
“I may try to take him this summer if it’s short trips to just get him adjusted to the road,” Young shares. “Really and truly, until dogs are about a year old, you’re just having to check them to make sure they understand boundaries and understand what’s going on.”
