Polka Dot is a six month old female Labrador/Pointer mix. This breed will make for an excellent family pet. She is active like any puppy her age and will require continued structure and guidance her foster provider family is providing her with. Polka loves other dogs and humans alike and would do great in a home where she can get activity and a playmate would be an added bonus but not a necessity for this lovely gal. Polka is up to date on her vaccines, microchipped and scheduled to be spayed.

If you are interested in adopting Polka please fill out an online adoption application. We do review our applications to match our dogs with those who have gone through our application processing and are waiting to be matched to a dog. We always give priority to our dogs and match them with the best home for their needs and never adopt first come, first serve.


Polka Dot is doing great in our home with our two large female dogs.  She has a lovely and sweet personality.

She has an active mind and likes to have something to do, and something to chew on.  We give her plenty of options for toys / chewing and have not noticed any destructive behavior.   She has certainly settled in at our house and actively seeks out affection, she definitely has some lap dog in her.

She does have that typical puppy high energy – she needs exercise and loves other dogs.  She does not “need” another dog in the home, but she certainly enjoys playing with other dogs.

She picks up on commands very quickly, and she wants to please you.  She is food motivated and very very smart.  She has the potential to learn a lot, and she would do well in a home that gives her mental stimulation.

She is crate trained and she is learning potty training (she doesn’t know how to “tell” you yet).  She knows several commands.  She is well behaved and takes good direction towards people or dogs.  She loves to eat (very quickly), so we actively try to slow down how much she eats and to make her work for it.  She knows how to counter surf, and we are actively working on that behavior.
