POLO (13-123)

POLO (13-123) I was born in Cairo, Egypt in December 2012 and had a pretty good life going. Then one day, my human’s gardener thought it would be fun to hit me on my back with a rake. Suddenly my back legs did not work so my humans did not want to keep me.

Meet GUS (14-045), a big, easy-going handsome senior boy that came into GRREAT in May via a rural shelter in Virginia. He’d been taken there FIVE times after he was found wandering in traffic, and each time was reclaimed by his owners until, one day, he was found tied to the door of the shelter and his owners never came to claim him. That’s when he was turned over to GRREAT.
