Polly is a beautiful young pup with great temperament. Under the loving care in foster home, Polly has transformed from being skittish and reserved into lively and cuddly. Now she is sweet, loving, and adores being petted. She’s also very sociable and comfortable around strangers and new environments. She walks in busy streets with confidence, and no longer has problem interacting with strangers. She is watchful though, will give short barks when strangers visiting our house, but will calm down and greet when she does not feel intimidated.
She enjoys the companion of dogs in her foster home a lot. Her favorite pastime is hanging out with play pals in dog park and daily walks. She’s good with the foster family’s cats too, but may chase after them like the way she plays with dogs. She is friendly with male and children, but not enjoying be petted by them. Please watch her videos to learn how much love and joy this young pup can bring to your family if you’re willing to give her a second chance in life.
About Polly’s rescue:
Polly and her sister Ruru were spotted as we drove by a hilly area in the suburb; they were about 5-m-old then. The pups were in poor shape; both skin and bones, dehydrated and extremely frail. We decided to come back for them the next day, since we had to rush to the vet for another dog who needed emergency care.
Luckily, we found them the next day; they were taken to the vet for intensive care. Both pups suffered different injuries most likely from having being hit by car. Polly’s left forelimb was crooked, it’s caused by a broken joint (Carpal joint) which was left untreated for too long and therefore can no longer be straightened by operation, according to the vet. She will stay in ballet’s first position for the rest of her life. However, Polly’s mobility is not affected at all. To manage her weight and maintain proper exercise, plus regular intake of Glucosamine is advisable.
Polly is currently under loving care in her foster home. Months passed, sweet Polly is still patiently waiting for her turn to join a family who will treasure her regardless of her deformed forelimb.
