If you are interested in meeting Poppy or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application

Please note, we do not have a physical location where the dogs are housed. They are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.

Precious Poppy (short for Poptart)  is approximately 7 months old and is such a sweetheart! Our southern partner shelter tells us, “her wonderfully expressive doggy face looks like she is smiling at you, and her beautiful and merry brown eyes reflect her joyful personality and love of life! We love the white marking on her forehead that looks like a diamond - and we believe she is a gem!

She trots happily at your side on daily walks and has the best time in the shelter yard, where she races around and loves the toys. Poppy would probably be a great hiking and running buddy for someone! She is so friendly and affectionate and will bat her paw to get your attention. She is a great cuddle bug.  Poppy had a great time on a recent 2-mile walk with Tails of the Trail and especially savored a post-hike treat!"

Poppy does well with other dogs, but she will need a home without cats. She would do well with another dog who has a similar energy level. Due to Poppy’s herding instincts she might do best in a family with older children. A family looking for an active companion would be a great match for Poppy.  She had been returned to our partner shelter because of her high energy level and her chewing habits when left alone (can you imagine a puppy chewing or being energetic?)

When our rescue friends in TN took Poptart to the vet they asked about a little limping they had seen. After an x-ray it was determined that Poppy had a tibial fracture that was healing on its own. The vet thought it could be caused from a fall, but she is doing well now and just might need to be monitored for any future needs. She is not in any pain and healing is going great.
