*POLAR* IN A NUTSHELL: Young (approximately 9 months old), very sweet and laid back boy who loves to give kisses.
We first heard about Polar Bear from our facebook angel, Kathy J, who had seen a post by Susanne R, a wonderful volunteer/photographer who has made it her mission to make sure that shelter dogs get SEEN and are not forgotten. Susanne had posted the above photo of Polar. He had been at a shelter (that was actually not even open to the public as yet) since April. When we asked for a video, Susanne sent the following:

We couldn't help but notice the pretty little female in the video with Polar so, even though she had a lot of color, we had to inquire about her, too. We were told she had been at the shelter since February. When the video came in, we just happened to be sitting with our dear friends, Chuck and Jon and, before we knew it, Chuck was on the phone with the shelter asking about pickup for the two dogs! At that point we realized that we were committed to taking the pair!

There was some paperwork to fill out for the shelter, but arrangements were made for Chuck and Jon to make the trip to the shelter to pick up the pair the following day.

UPDATE 6/18: Two of our staff members met Chuck and Jon in Quartzsite this afternoon and brought Polar and his traveling companion, Ella, to Phoenix.

Arrival in Phoenix

Both Polar and Ella will be given some time to settle in. Polar's coat is absolutely filthy. We cannot imagine where this boy has been living, but we can say without a doubt that he has never seen a brush or been given a bath -- we're not even sure if the color of his coat is white or buff! He has some pounds to put on before he'll be sent for his neuter surgery. We're going to make sure he's duly spoiled as he's made ready for adoption.

UPDATE 7/12: Polar checked in to our vet's office this morning for his neuter surgery at a healthy 58 pounds. We were very happy to see that the scale reflected his weeks of good nutrition. He approached the vet staff a little tentatively (can you blame him?), but with a wagging tail, was updated on his rabies vaccine and came through the surgery without complication. He will be recuperating at the home of one of our staff members and will be available for introductions and adoption in about 2 weeks or less.

Adoption fee $395.00.
