This is CHICA POGO and she’s a boss. She’s 7 lbs of sass and has enough attitude and confidence for about 100 dogs. She’s pretty weird looking but she doesn’t care, she thinks she’s cute. Her facial expressions are priceless and will keep you entertained for days. She is an actual bouncy ball and can jump very high when she gets excited, usually when you’re holding something she wants… food. CHICA POGO is working on her socialization skills because she doesn’t approach many situations with a lot of chill. She is vocal and not hesitant to use her voice. On leash, she barks and lunges at other dogs. When she actually has the opportunity to meet them she’s quite dog social but it’s obviously not possible for her to meet every dog so she will need to work on being less reactive on leash. She is being fostered with two other dogs and loves playing with her fur sister who is easily 8-times her size. She’s less interested in the other dog in the home who is less playful but she doesn't always read cues and will try to instigate (unwanted) play so close monitoring is important. She’s ok being crated for a work day as long as she gets enough exercise before and after work! She loves her people so would love someone with a flexible schedule who can hang with her more often. If she has regular pee breaks throughout the day she won’t have any accidents in the home. Size-wise she’s ok in a condo but she does bark at noises in the hallway. She needs proper introductions with new people as she’s very sceptical at first. Even when people ignore her she will bark and circle around them like a shark for a good 3 to 5 minutes. Once she stops barking she will take a treat and become your BFF pretty quickly and curl up in your lap. She hasn’t been tested with kids. She has barked at kids on the street and likely shouldn’t go to a home with young children. She has spent a bit of time with a cat while being babysat and it went okay but she would need to be monitored. CHICA POGO will need a home who can provide structure/boundaries while continuing to work on her socialization. If you’d like to meet her fill out an application to adopt!
