About

Polo - CO

Polo is a very sweet dog who loves lounging in the yard and soaking up the sun. He’s the perfect weekend warrior dog; he’ll nap while you chill or work, but when you’re ready to hit the trails or go grab brunch he’s down for an adventure. Polo would thrive in a home where his people are home most of the time or where he can be an office dog. His crate training is coming along, but he does have some anxiety around being in a crate and being alone. He cannot be left out unsupervised. He will go in a crate on his own in the evening and nap with the door open, but he needs time and patience to build up to being locked in it and alone. Clearly someone traumatized him with improper crate training. He will likely need to take a daily SSRI to assist his training and help him feel more comfortable. We are looking into the right medication to help him. He’s very respectful in the house. If he accidentally tries to nibble on something he shouldn’t it's very easy to redirect him. His chewing needs are satisfied pretty easily, and he loves his chew toys. Polo loves all people and the attention he gets when out and about. He isn’t a big cuddler, but will enter his person’s space occasionally when trying to communicate a need such as hunger or being out of water. He is dog neutral to dog friendly. He can coexist with another dog or be happy on his own. He does need a proper intro though to new dogs. He is very excited by cats and would likely chase, so would do best in a home with no cats.
