• Animal ID#: A303548
  • Dog Name: Poppy
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 5 years
  • This girl is so gentle and sweet that the loud, chaotic shelter terrifies her. She wants to hide behind her people and gently lean on you for comfort. Getting down to her level and sweet-talking her works wonders. She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. We suspect she’d do OK with respectful children. In a loving home with TLC, she’ll gain confidence, come out of her shell and be a wonderful pet.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
