Meet Polly!

Mixed Breed
East riding of Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber

Urban Paws UK is proud to present Polly, the Shih Tzu mixed breed dog model, and animal actor. Polly’s beautiful looks are loved by everyone that she meets.  This lovely girl is as cheeky as she is pretty. She boasts an excellent temperament and is well trick trained, making her a highly sought-after bit of animal talent.

This talented mixed-breed animal model has achieved her Kennel Club Bronze & silver awards therefore, she is used to taking commands and performing in front of other people, similar to being onset or in a studio.

She is more than happy to be handled by strangers and can work with other dogs, including her 3 other siblings: Bluebell, Mitzee, and Kenzo for a variety of advertising and marketing campaigns.

With her great nature, Polly loves meeting new people and can work with models and actors, including children, and will respond to both voice and hand signals from them, from a distance. She is a very affectionate pooch and a highly socialised pet talent.
