OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
CALM, PATIENT OWNERS WHO WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS PRECIUS BABIES JOURNEY TO BECOMING A LITTLE STAR
Poppy is a 2 Year old cavalier King Charles Spaniel described by her foster mum as a very sweet little girl who is becoming braver and braver every day. Poppy is an ex breeding dog who was no longer wanted. She hasn’t had a positive relationship with humans until meeting her loving foster mum. Now under her loving watchful eye she is beginning to explore the house and garden. She is still very much a work in progress and her forever pawrents are going to need to be patient with her but it will be so worth it.
She has started to show her hidden playful side and is now happily eating two meals a day from a bowl. She was never important enough before to have a bowl of her own and would have eaten off the floor. Even eating from a bowl is a big achievement and things can only get better. Throughout the day she enjoys treats and is getting used to having a regular brush and her coat is now in very good condition.
Poppy has an undershot jaw but this doesn’t seem to impact on her eating and the vets were not concerned when she had her check up.
Poppy has learnt to trust foster mum and remains calm when stroked by visitors as long as they give her time to work out if they are good or bad people. Once she has decided and mum has given her the secret nod she is happy to be gently fussed by them. She now frequently wags her tail when greeted. She loves foster mum cuddling up to her and sharing a licky finger of doggy peanut butter.
Poppy watches everything going on with great interest. She is not yet playing with any toys or the resident dogs in the foster home but she is watching intently and one day she will join is. This is the way it goes with these types of rescues they like to sit back and take everything in and then one day it’s as if it all makes sense and they feel safe and begin to shine.
Not cat or small furry tested
Poppy has not yet had her second vac so lead and harness training is ongoing. Toilet training is ongoing but she does use a puppy pad consistently. She sleeps downstairs in her bed all through the night. She has been left for a few hours with the resident dog and was fine.
Poppy needs a home where her prospective adopters have time and patience to allow this lovely little girl to continue in confidence at her own pace. There are already glimpses of a lively young lady and in time she will make a delightful companion. She will need a resident friendly calm dog/s to show her how wonderful a doggy life can be.
