A tough little guy and a bit of a clown, seems to have found his home here at the Refugio. Originally rescued from the streets in San Rafael de Heredia, he has twice been adopted out and returned to us in less than optimal health.
As his photograph shows, Polonio’s front feet and legs are a bit distorted; at this point in his young life, they don’t seem to affect him. With age, however, an arthritic issue might surface.
Though he’s social with other dogs, he does tend to rule the roost when strolling about the Refugio grounds, though not with serious aggression; we think he has a short dog complex…or thinks he’s a big guy.
A.H.P.P.A. is committed to keeping dogs like Polonio off the streets, to know that their next meal will be served, and that they are well cared for and in a safe environment.
But to do all of this costs money. Which is why we ask people who care about and love dogs yet who may not be able to adopt a dog in Costa Rica, to sponsor Polonio or one of the many others here at the Refugio. Visit our donations page to learn of the various ways you can help us, help the animals of Costa Rica.
Polonio gives a wag of his tail in appreciation.
