Portia is a snooty dog villager who has appeared in every game so far, and is also the only dog in the Animal Crossing series that has a snooty personality. "Portia" is a common English name for individuals of high class, which references her snooty attitude. Her phrase, "ruffian" is a pun on "ruff," an onomatopoeia for the noise a dog makes, and a ruffian, a person who appears untidy.

Portia is a dog based on a dalmatian, with grey spots and yellow sclera. Like several characters, Portia had numerous differences with her current and Doubutsu no Mori form: her eyes were smaller, placed lower on her face, and were differently shaped. Furthermore, she was noticeably shorter with the other dog villagers.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

As a snooty villager, Portia will appear uptown, classy, and chic. With this, however, she will appear rude, belittling, and snobbish when talking to the player or other villagers in the town, usually criticizing their sense of dress or fashion. When talking to the player enough times, she will befriend them but still remain subtly rude. As with all snooty villagers, she has an interest in clothes over other hobbies. She will have problems socializing with other villagers, usually lazy villagers by disagreeing with their choice of lifestyle or getting offended by a jock villager, who has questioned her physical fitness. Her e-Reader card for Animal Crossing says that she is snooty due to wanting a little brother to boss around, which would be odd for a snooty villager, and sounds more similar to the behavior of an Uchi villager.
