No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Polly! A rescuer found Polly when she was on a walk with her dog. She spotted Polly sleeping under the playground at the park. There was no one around who could be the owner. Polly is a sweet girl who would love nothing more than to find a home to call her own. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Polly is patiently waiting!
"Polly has been a wonderful addition to our family. At first she was a bit shy, understandably needing to get used to her new home. We introduced her cautiously to our 17 year old cat, Ruthie, and I continue to be amazed at how gentle and respectful she has been, despite her natural curiosity. She has now learned to respect Ruthie, and just stands stock still and lets Ruthie cross her path whenever she is near. She is quite mellow and independent for a pup, which is surprising and nice, happily going to her crate to relax when the family is around. Her gentle nature is a blessing for us with 9 and 10-year old children that are a bit tentative around dogs. Polly is a true lover, she showers us with endless kisses to greet us in the morning, at the door, and of course whenever we are on the floor. She seems to be a dog’s dog, such that even though she is still always on leash outdoors, she clearly wants to play with other dogs constantly. We can’t wait until we can train her for recall such that she can play more freely. She also now sleeps with the family on the bed, after being allowed to do so by dad. We all love Polly, and our only challenge, is whether and when we can adopt a dog sister for her. I’m sure she misses her foster home and her original sister Bonnie.
We love love love love love her times 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000. -Maya, age 10"
