Lovely Poppy is a medium sized Terrier mix with a tan rough coat. She was rescued in July 2017 from an illegal pound, where she had been born. She didn’t know anything about the outside world, so she was extremely fearful of everything.
She was sent to a foster home where she has improved a lot. She is still a shy, wary girl with strangers but she has learnt to trust people over time and she is affectionate.
She lives with other dogs and she needs a home with other calm dogs to make her feel safe. She is very sociable with other dogs and compatible with cats.
We are looking for a quiet home without young children for her but anther dog is a must to help giver confidence.
Her Best Points :
Poppy is a calm, sweet girl. She walks very well on a lead, she doesn’t pull. She is sociable with all dogs and can live with other animals.
Foster Report :
Poppy is house-trained and calm at home as long as she is not left for long periods alone. It would be ideal if she could be homed with a retired couple, who already have a quiet dog.
Poppy had a very rough start to her life and she needs a bit more time and patience than other dogs, but she is a very special little lady, very good-natured and loving and can be exceptionally affectionate, once she bonds with you .

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.

All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
