When I close my eyes and picture my ‘ideal puppy’ he looks exactly like Polo–a soft gaze, long elegant nose and that velveteen coat of shiny gold–and when I open them I find the real-life version has a perfect personality to match–gentle, humble, kissy, cuddly, playful and silly. What else to conclude but that Polo is a dream come true? The best little Bull Terrier mix this side of ever, he’s rather timid at first meeting but I offer him a soft hand and a kind word to prove I’m a friend and before I know it he’s hopped onto the bench to share snuggles, smooches and doe-eyed little love looks with me. He may be just a baby but Polo poses so patiently as I try to snap photos in the fading daylight and even though his many tiny kisses show as no more than a blur on camera, I’m not about to stop him from smothering me in them! The oohs and awws of passersby follow wherever he goes and other dogs seem to sense he’s not inherited his breed’s reputation for pushiness either, approaching with the same softly wagging happy tail as Polo himself. He walks nicely, takes care of his business in the street, listens to correction and comes when called, and his only small naughtiness is playfully jumping and tugging on the leash before a firm ‘no’ puts all four paws back on the ground. Puppies need guidance and even the good-enough-to-eat ones like Polo take a lot of work to raise up right, yet the love and effort you put in will be paid back ten times over. This wonderful wee boy has SO much to give to the lucky family who welcomes him home so why wait a minute longer? Ask to meet, cuddle, play and fall in love with Polo at our Manhattan Care Center and start living the dream today!
