Meet Pogo

One BIG heart, two big brown eyes, three legs and looking for a KOOL forever home.

pogo (ADOPTED) Dog Of The Week
It is impossible to overlook the fact that Pogo only
has three legs, but spend some time with the effervescent chocolate Labrador
and you won’t give that missing leg a second thought because he sure doesn’t.

In January, the 3-year-old was facing an uncertain
future as he lie helpless and injured in the middle of the road, clinging to
life after being hit by a car. A Good Samaritan spotted him and called the
Arizona Humane Society’s EAMTs who rushed him to the shelter’s hospital and his
leg was later amputated in order to save his life.

After spending some time in a foster home, Pogo
learned how to maneuver with just three limbs and now nothing holds him back
when he spots the leash in his foster parent’s hand and he will wiggle and
bounce with excitement as he anticipates his evening walk. He loves romping in
the yard  and will eventually
 tucker out and will look for the nearest dog bed to flop down on for a long
nap.

A family introduction is required to ensure a good
match so bring the kids and your current canine down for a meet and greet.

He is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s
Sunnyslope Facility located at 9226 North 13th Avenue in Phoenix.
His adoption fee is $35 since he is a member of the exclusive Lonely Heart’s
Club. This fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccines, a colorful
collar and leash with an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam.

For more information about this pet, please call (602) 997-7586 ext. 1045 and ask
for animal ID number A337529 or log on to www.azhumane.org.
