Polo

Polo continues to be a sweet cuddlebug! Everyone who has met him adores him, he just loves people so much! After slow introductions, Polo has been great with the female boxer in his foster home; he is not fond of smaller dogs. He’s not an especially active dog, but he has no concept of personal space so I think he would knock little kids down. We’re working on him thinking that he can sit in our laps any time he wants. He’s doing very well at learning not to come into the dining room while we’re eating. He’s currently recovering from getting two masses removed. We’re continuing to work on basic commands, housetraining, and food aggression. He’s doing much better now at not barking when we’re away from him. He does great walking on a leash with a halter.
