Poppy

Poppy

  • Poppy is a whippet cross girl of around 10 years old. She stands 23 inches floor to shoulder.
  • She is a friendly girl who loves both humans and other dogs.
  • She is very gentle and is great with children of all ages but being an older lady probably wouldn’t be happy living with very young children full time.
  • Poppy is house trained and will ask to go out.
  • On walks she will only pull if she sees something of interest.
  • She has a strong prey drive very much wants to chase wildlife, including birds, and is not cat safe.
  • Recall is very limited and with her high prey drive this is unlikely to improve much.
  • Poppy is fine being left and could be left for 4 hours at a time.
  • Her foster carer describes her as an affectionate and kind dog who enjoys her walks but equally loves cuddles on the sofa.
  • We have been advised that Poppy had a mammory tumour removed before coming into our care. She currently has no further symptoms but Hounds First will cover any issues regarding this should there be a recurrence.
  • Poppy is in foster in near Northampton.
