About Polo

Meet Polo… Polo and his buddy named Lucky (who has since been adopted) were surrendered to Adore after their family was forced to move into an apartment and their breeds were restricted. Due to their financial situation, they were forced to surrender both of their dogs to Adore. Polo is a sweet misunderstood Pittie mix who is approximately 3-4 years old and weighs about 66 lbs. HE IS NOT DOING WELL IN BOARDING, unfortunately, we have not been able to find a foster for him. Polo is used to living with his family and doesn’t understand why he doesn’t get to sleep in his bed anymore. Polo is not fond of being in a kennel, and he gets nervous going to new places. Once he is comfortable, he is a very sweet and happy boy. He is active and loves attention. As you can probably tell in his photos, he loves to smile! Please consider giving this guy a chance. His former owner told us he is dog friendly and cat friendly, but we have not seen him with cats ourselves. Polo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Adoption or foster applications can be found on our website Email us at with any further questions.

Meet Annie! Annie is a new addition to the Adore organization. She was saved by her foster family who found her on the street and gave her a safe place to stay. Here is what her foster mom has to say about her: "She is definitely housebroken and has pretty good manners inside. We've worked with her a little too. She loves attention and is not food aggressive; prefers attention to food as rewards. Loves a good belly rub and loves lounging on the futon. She would love more walks than we can give her. We have a cat that we keep separated from her. But they see each other and "Annie" the dog, mostly friendly whines when she sees her. She is pretty friendly. Daughter has taken her up to the boarding facility she works at a couple of times for a visit or grooming and she hasn't been a problem or aggressive. Walks on a leash eagerly. She is really, really funny, sweet and loves to learn (tricks and things). She has not been destructive but loves to chew and shred things, which we coordinate with appropriate stuff. She's about 55 lbs., and we think part German Shepherd and maybe Chow (she has black on her tongue). She doesn't like storms (if she is outside when one is brewing she wants to come in immediately) and she doesn't like other people's lawn equipment (edging and mowing). She loves playing in the sprinkler/hose. She really will make someone who want's a larger dog a great pet!" Annie is soon to be spayed and microchipped (will be before any home visit). She is up to date on vaccines and is heartworm positive. Don't worry, she will begin her treatment soon and at no cost to any adopter! Heartworms are not contagious, email us if you have anymore questions at Adoption applications can be found on our website at show less

I was wandering around the gym parking lot, feeling down-on-my luck when I spotted him. I ran up to him with my tail wagging, looked up with my big brown eyes, and nuzzled his leg. Then I followed him to his car and jumped on in. Any place he could take me would be better than here. It was starting to get cold and I was hungry. This was the start of my rescue story. I wasn’t the prettiest. My body had seen better days. My girlish figure was all gone – you could see all of my ribs sticking out! I had spots of missing fur all over my body. Pesky ringworms. It’s hard to keep those guys away when you’re living on the street. Look at the “Before” first picture of me… I am embarrassed! I am glad that he noticed my beautiful spirit, eyes, and temperament and took a chance on a gal like me. I got taken to a nice vet to fix me all up. Besides the ring-worm, he found out I was suffering from the dreaded Heartworms. Before treating the heartworms, I wanted to get spayed so that I could try to find a forever home. Unfortunately, I had one more hurdle to overcome on my story. While waking up from surgery, I suffered from a pulmonary embolism (due to a heartworm dislodging). Luckily the nice vet was able to save me! This video was taken the same day that I flat-lined and came back to life. As you can see I am a happy go lucky girl that doesn’t let any obstacles slow me down. All I want is a human of my own to love on. I have completed my heartworm treatment, healthy, and ready to go to my forever home! I am a goofy clown who loves making you laugh. I love to smile and wag my tail constantly. I try to be really good and listen to my foster parents. I always sit for my food and to go out on the leash. I am working on potty training. I am dog friendly but have not yet been tested on cats or children. Despite all of my positive qualities, I know I may look scary to some people. I promise I am not scary! I love all people and want to be best friends with any new person I meet. I promise if you give a girl like me a chance, I will be your best friend forever. I want a family of my own – please give me a chance! I am up to date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. show less
