About me

Hello! My name is Poppy!

My life has been up and down really and I am desperately looking for a new home as I am very stressed in kennels. I've spent over half my life in a kennel because no one has wanted to rehome me and it's starting to make me lose hope of ever finding a place to call my own. I really hope that I can find a new owner who can stick by me and work through my training - I would give them lots of love in return!

I definitely need a secure garden and plenty of walks. Because I am very keen to chase wildlife (particularly squirrels) most of my exercise will need to be on-lead.

I need to be an only pet but I am good when left home alone and am really clean in the house. I also don't mind travelling in the car once I have done a few trips.

I love a fuss and I love to play and learn new things. I just need to find someone who can provide me with that and build a bond with me. I've had my heart broken before so I take a little time to trust new people completely. Who can blame me?

Anyway, I need to be in a home soon as I am getting very stressed and desperate in kennels. My handlers are worried about me so please help me if you can.

Love Poppy xxx


Why Sponsor a Blue Cross Pet?

Sponsorship is a great way to help more animals find a loving home. Sponsors make monthly donations which help care for pets in our rehoming centres. You will receive emails, including a certificate and monthly updates from your chosen pet.

When the happy day arrives, we will also tell you when your pet has found a new home, with details on the next pet your sponsorship is helping to rehome.

Each year we help thousands of pets find new homes. By sponsoring a pet you can help to rehome even more. Find out more about sponsoring a pet.

If you have any further questions about sponsorship, please have a look at our frequently asked questions about sponsoring a pet.
