Pogo the dog needs a new home in the Calgary area

Meet Pogo, the shy but loving pup that will need a little extra help to be the best dog he can be! It takes a little bit of time for this nervous boy to warm up to new people. But with lots of treats, respecting his space, and understanding his body language, Pogo is shown to be an exceptionally loyal, cuddly companion! One of his favourite places to be is curled up next to his person getting plenty of pets and cuddles. As an energetic dog, Pogo would love plenty of enrichment, exercise, and fun training sessions! He’s even been shown to play really well with dogs that can match his playstyle, so there is potential for another dog in the home after a successful dog-to-dog. It’s recommended that Pogo’s new home is without little kids as he can get quite over-excited and children may not be able to interpret when he needs some alone time. Come learn more about this scruffy pup by making an appointment to visit Pogo today!
