Master Po Ping
The title character and protagonist of the Kung Fu Panda franchise. Po is friendly, kind, energetic, impulsive, good-natured, spunky, innocent, fun-loving, compassionate, sarcastic, naive, loveable, and tenacious.
Po Ping recently lost his home due to conflicts with other male dogs. The owner tried to make it work but wasn't successful. Po was purchased from an American Bully breeder when he was 8 weeks old and raised by a young woman. His breed strain is called "Blue Tri Bully". He was to be a show dog, hence the cropped ears.
Adoption Fee: $200
Breed: American Bully
Age: 4-6 yrs
Weight: 65-75 lbs
Color: White & Blue
Po is heartworm positive and has began treatment. We are also treating a mild skin infection, possibly caused by seasonal allergies or reaction to grass or chiggers -nothing serious.
He's a head-turner, no doubt about it. Mostly white with some blue and tan patches. Very stocky and bulky, the most handsome beefcake in the neighborhood! His foster mom has him doing daily exercise to lose a few lbs & he loves going on walks.
Po is fostered in a home with a single woman and an older female dog. The dogs are kept in separate areas of the house and will likely not be introduced. Po is free in a large basement with a bed and couch and is very well behaved. Foster mom brings him upstairs for social time and doesn't report any issues whatsoever. She says that he is as easy as can be and just a big happy baby.
He's a very chill, happy-go-lucky dog who loves to play with toys and just go about his daily business. Po doesn't sweat the small stuff and adjusted quickly to his foster home!, He's been through quite a bit of changes in his life and has taken everything in stride.
Po has the cutest smile/grin when you talk to him. It looks scary if you don't know dogs but for the rest of us, its hilarious and endearing. He sure knows how to win hearts.
Po's level of energy is medium/low. He loves doing zoomies & spinning in circles in his yard. In an effort to help him lose some lbs, foster mom takes him on short walks and he loves strutting around the neighborhood!
Foster mom says he is one of the easiest and happiest foster dogs she has had!
Info from previous owner: "Po grew up with me when I was training horses and went everywhere with me so he’s a "been there, done that" kinda guy. FULL of personality and loves to be spoiled and the center of attention. He is very protective of his people and place. Never bit anyone but will definitely intimidate you if you don’t know him and hear or see him barking at the door or gate. But then again, it is partially just his looks too. He loves almost everyone he meets and they can’t help but love him too. He’s gotten into the bad habit of being pushy for attention because he’s been allowed to for awhile now. Not aggressive just demanding."
Behavior with people:
He greets new people by spinning in circles, snorting, and smiling!
He is outgoing & friendly, but has a protective side. He prefers women but warms up to friendly men. Po requires a structured environment and responsible ownership.
Overall, his foster mom describes him as a big baby who just wants to cuddle. He is great with guests! His huge smile and snorting when he's excited makes everyone laugh!
Behavior with children:
Behavior with other dogs:
We think Po would be more successful as an only pet. We don't know how he would do with a female dog but we know he doesn't get along with other males.
His foster home has several dogs on once side of that fence that Po is very vocal towards. Because of this, he is not left in the yard alone at all. He is easily redirected & comes back to foster mom when called.
Since he is dominant and arrogant with other dogs, we recommend a home as an only pet for this Don Juan.
Behavior with other animals:
Previous owner told us that he was good with horses and cattle, but not with chickens or cats.
According to previous owner, Po knows hand and verbal signals for all basic commands. Foster mom has been working with Po on basic training & commands. He has picked things up quickly and is eager to please. He is easily redirected & really likes training because it usually involves treats!
Po is gorgeous, well behaved and easy-to-handle. He knows tricks and has great house manners. His hilarious smile, snorting when he gets excited, and goofy personality make him the perfect dog to come home to everyday!
