Polo's Story...
Hello Everyone!
Please allow me to introduce myself because I’m a pretty spectacular pup. Now I’m absolutely not bragging. (I would never, ever do that.) However, everyone that meets me says so!
My foster Mom and Dad will tell you that I’m a handsome and loving Bichon boy, about eight or nine, who is loyal, attentive, mellow, quiet and great with people, as well as with other dogs. I’m good with the little people called children and the big ones called adults. “Pal” would be a great nickname for me because that is just what I am — and what I am good at. I’m the best pal you could ask for. I am gentle and sweet and love to be petted. And I do love people! Mom says I do this darling little dance when they come home and that my tail wags and wags. Dad says I just focus my big brown eyes on you and am so accommodating and easy to get along with that I’m a pleasure to have around.

In the family, I’m known for loving to cuddle – and that includes cuddling with kids and other pups. I simply love being part of the family and show how happy I am to be included every chance I get.

As you can probably tell by now, I’m a cuddly, cute and mellow kind of guy (about 15 pounds) who is as friendly as I am sweet. (Mom says that’s an amazing combination!) I’m the kind of pup that doesn’t take things for granted and has excellent manners. Why I don’t jump up on the couch or bed – I ask permission. I’m also incredibly smart and want to please. Dad says I figured out how to go out the doggy door in minutes by simply watching the other pups. (He was pleased and quite impressed!)

I have learned my first command (because Mom was willing to teach me!) and I’m willing to learn more. I like my walks and rides in the car but otherwise I’m, indeed, a snuggle bunny. Oh silly me! I’m not a bunny at all – I’m a furkid! Well, what I was trying to say is that the thing that I like to do best of all is to lie next to you or be in the same room, content to know that you are nearby. But I’m not a couch potato, no siree. Just take out my harness and I am ready to go with you on a walk. I don’t do wind sprints or races, as I’m more inclined to ‘meander’, but I do enjoy a walk where I can sniff the trees and plants and enjoy being outside in our beautiful weather.

Now that I’m a furkid, life is great again – but it has been a bit of a rocky road. Once I had a wonderful home where I was loved and taken care of. I was just about the happiest pup on earth. But one day things changed and my family brought me to the shelter. I was so scared and afraid and didn’t know what I was going to do. I started to shut down and give up, as no one was looking for a great guy like me or wanting to meet me. Luckily, my BFK Auntie Melissa heard about me and scooped me up. (She could see right away that I had had a rather hard life but was a great guy who would make a wonderful friend and pal.)

So if you are interested in a loving, gentle, cuddly, affectionate– and don’t forget– mellow Bichon, then I’m the guy for you! Just fill out our application and ask for Polo. I promise you that I will love you to the end of the earth and back – and be the best pal you ever wanted!

Tail wags and ears at attention,
Personable, Precious and Polite Polo

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Polo, a La Costa Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bichon Frise for sale in La Costa, or seeking a Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in La Costa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Costa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a La Costa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bichon Frise breeders who help with Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Costa paves the way for another one to be saved.
