When meeting Pogo he is in your face, on your lap, and he's going to love you. No human, big nor small gets treated differently by Pogo. He loves kids! He's been around kids on the splash pad in the Inner Harbor and loved them. He was gentle with them, but gentle Pogo is complemented with big playful Pogo too.

He's great on leash, unless there's a squirrel which he would like to chase. He thrives on structure and is eager to please his human and learn how to be a polite canine citizen. Pogo loves a good couch! Napping, sleeping, playing or cuddling. He is housebroken and working on crate training.

He loves most food and treats and is very polite when taking a treat. He is not super food motivated but does enjoy a tasty treat from time to time. Pogo loves his toys! He will chew his stuffies and play tug of war with his rope toys. He also enjoys playing fetch!

Most important! Swimming! Pogo will go loco if he can't go-go into the water. Anywhere, anytime, any type and any means necessary. He doesn't take off but will swim back and forth, do circles, and be out there for a long time. He doesn't chase ducks or geese, just does it for the love of water. In a shallow pool he will splash, play, and chase the water! A few days without swimming and he will whine if he gets close to the water. Baths are NOT swimming, and he will hunker down and resist. However, towel time does make up for it!

Pogo prefers to be the only pup in his new home. Pogo participates in socials at the shelter where is working on his manners and reading social cues from his pals. He is eligible to return to BARCS for continued social sessions after adoption!

Pogo is residing in a foster home, please email dogfosters@barcs.org for next steps to meet him!
