Polly is a beautiful, warm natured dog and a rare find - good with other dogs, cats, kids, is quiet and obedient. Her only foible is that she does not like to be alone without her human family for extended periods otherwise she becomes distressed.
Polly is usually a very relaxed dog and a joy to have around especially with children where she is gentle and calm. When kids who are unknown to her approach, Polly sits down to let them pat her.
She never snatches treats, sits and waits patiently, really enjoys walks and loves company.
At times Polly can find being without her family distressing which leads to her trying to get out of the yard to go searching. She doesn't jump but usually tries to break through the timber gate - even pulling palings off.
She does not like fireworks, lightning or thunder.
Polly has been a cherished family member but needs more companionship than her family can provide.
Polly will suit someone seeking a gentle, loyal and devoted companion who is home more often than not. As Polly is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities.
She does not need to be the only permanent dog in the home but this will not replace her desire for human company.
Polly will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters, time poor or seeking a babysitter for their current lonely doggy.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Polly is quiet and rarely makes a sound.
She will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk). She loves outings, socialising, walking, going to the park and meeting new friends but is also happy to hang around at home as long as her owners are home too.
When ON a lead ...
Polly is well behaved and never pulls - and will sit when told.
When OFF a lead ...
She usually stays close by and comes when called - occasionally distracted if playing with other dogs or chasing a ball.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure with shoulder height fencing.
While her family are home she will not wander however, when alone she can get distressed and try to get out to find her loved ones.
