About me

Hello there my name is Poppy,

I am on the lookout for quite a specific home, so please do read all about me to see if I am the one for you. I have been spending my last few months in a foster home which has been great, and between you and me I have been thoroughly spoilt! I really enjoy being around my foster family and we have spent lots time together having fun.

I love to play and run around the garden as fast as my little legs will take me, I am quite energetic and like to be kept busy. Once I am tired from all my running and playing I love to settle down for some gentle strokes and a fuss before I have recharged my batteries and I am ready to go again! I am sure me and my new owner will have lots of fun!

The area I need the most support in and an owner who is really understanding is around dogs, I find them very scary and this causes me to bark. This means I need to be walked in very quiet areas where I won't see lots of dogs and definitely nowhere where other dogs are off-lead and could come running over to me. It would be ideal if an owner had access to private land where I wouldn't see dogs, but I understand this is probably asking too much and the main thing is an owner who is very understanding and supportive of my needs.

I will be very rewarding to own in the right home and I can't wait to start my new adventure.

Lots of love
