Poppett – Boxer/Labrador Cross – 5 years old.
Poppett was left tied up out side a busy city centre shop. She was there for hours and presumed abandoned. So Poppett has been taken in by us.
Leaving a dog outside a shop for any length of time is something that should never be done in this day and age. Dogs find this very stressful.
Poppett had clearly gone into her self by the time she came to us. This will have been a very frightening experience for her!
Poppett has had multiple litters of puppies and this is very clear to see when you meet her. So sweet Poppett will have been used for breeding.
Poppett’s ears needed treatment for neglect because she could literally grow spuds in them. This is easy to sort out and awful that they have been allowed to get this bad!
Initially Poppett was extremely subdued and bewildered. You will be pleased to hear that she is really perking up. Poppett’s tail is out from under her legs and she’s enjoying cuddles and tummy tickles with us. In fact she’s very keen to show us her tummy for her tummy tickles.
Poppett’s personality has really begun to shine and she has really come out of her shell
Poppett didn’t react to other dogs at all when she first came to us. This was because she was still traumatised from her previous life. Fast forward several weeks and Poppet can be very full on around other dogs and extremely interested. Poppet will need a family with experience of having dogs before because in the wrong hands she will be misunderstood. She will need quieter walks to start with so she isn’t over whelmed. Poppets will benefit from being distracted with treats and eye contact when another dog is coming along and then praised for calm behaviour. In time her exuberance with other dogs will calm down.
Poppett may prefer to be the only dog. If there was another dog in the family it would be better if it were a calm neutered male. We have no cat history. If there are children in the family they will need to be 10 plus. We re home in a 50 mile drive of Peterborough Lincs. Poppets will need a secure 5 foot garden. Appointment only.
