PERSONALITY & BEHAVIORS
Polly Pocket is an affectionate, sweet, loving girl who adores all people and dogs alike! See her video with 2 dogs she had never seen before! She loves to give kisses and if allowed will be happy to join you in bed.
High energy, she needs another young dog to play with and a fenced yard with at least a 6-ft privacy fence. She can often be found entertaining herself in the yard, running around with a toy or big ball (see that video, too!)
Polly is playful and needs an active family -- someone to run with would be great! She can fly over a 5-ft picket fence, so she would be perfect for agility training! She adores going for walks and is doing well with leash training. Such a friendly girl, Polly is always thrilled to see dogs and people on the street and welcomes them to come right up to her to say Hi. Wag, wag, wag -- Oh, boy, another new friend to meet!
Very smart, she has learned Sit, Down, Roll over, Give me your paw, And the other paw, Come, Crate, Wait, Stop, Let's go out, Time for bed, Go back to sleep, Off, and Drop it. She is house-trained and crate-trained, and will go right into the crate when given a treat. Polly lets you know when she has to go out.
She loves her Benebone and peanut butter Kong!
Polly Pocket is mostly Plott Hound, with a shiny black coat and brindle markings on her face, chest, legs, and butt.
Polly Pocket is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed, and heartworm negative.
Polly Pocket was a stray who was taken to a local shelter, adopted, but later abandoned and possibly let loose. A Good Samaritan found her, covered in mud, very skinny, with some fur missing on her neck and a sore on one leg. She took her home and Polly let the woman give her a bath! She then brought Polly to a vet and discovered she was microchipped, but although the vet and the shelter both contacted the associated number, no one returned their calls. She found out Polly's family had moved out 3 weeks prior.
