Poland is such an observant boy. He loves to sit outside and watch things go by - people, squirrels, clouds, cars; he's just interested in everything! While indoors, this super cuddly boy mainly wants to drape himself across his human's lap.

This loving, goofy dude came to his foster with a possible spinal injury that has affected his walking. He's energetic and appears to be recovering nicely. For now, he is on crate-rest with only a few short, slow walks in the front yard for bathroom breaks. His walking is improving, and he especially walks well on his leash. Once he is healed, he is going to be a great companion for someone who enjoys outdoor activities.

Poland seems thrilled to have a home and shows his affection every chance he gets. He's happy to carry around his favorite toy, a skunk that crinkles and squeaks, but rests comfortably in his cage when his people are away. When they're home, he is content to sit at their feet all day long. He's also housetrained so you don't have to worry about accidents while you're away!

Poland hopes for a home with people he can be near all day who will take him for walks whenever they have a few spare minutes. He'd also prefer not to have to deal with any of those cat creatures. Come meet this lovable boy. He'll want to observe you and then follow you home!
