I enjoy playing with toys and will even entertain myself if you’re busy. I like people of all ages and get along with other pets. I really like to swim, so if you have a pool that would be terrific! Please don’t pass me by just because I grew up. Adopt me and you won’t be disappointed. 

    After having a fabulous home my entire life the new baby is allergic to me and my family was devastated they had to give me up.

So you know more about me...My name is Pokey (ID 606136) and I'm a sweet gal, but might be shy at first. If you tap your shoulders, I will jump into your arms.
