This approximately 2-year-old, American pit bull terrier-mix is a smart, happy, sweet fellow who loves people, attention and affection. Polo, handsome with a shorthair coat in butterscotch brown with white, is large, active and strong. He will do best as the only animal, because he is not good with male dogs and farm animals. It is unknown how he behaves with other animals. Polo will need owner(s) willing to give him love, attention, exercise in a fenced area or on leash and basic obedience training. Polo deserves a good, loving forever home where he can be a faithful companion. For photos and video, visit Polo’s ID#1976. Come spend a little time with Pogo.



Stunning in her American medium-hair coat, this tabby girl wears a gorgeous coat with stripes of ebony, warm brown and gray and ivory.
