We are calling out to those special people that have success dealing with super shy dogs. Polly may be a Doodle but she has not had the socialization that she needs to be the big bouncy girl she wants to be.

A home with lots of time to gently encourage her to enjoy the world around her is what she needs. If you would like to slip Polly into your life and your pocket just follow the steps below.
