Hi, my name is Poppy and my foster mom calls me Pop or Pop Pop because I bounce all around. I came to Lucky Bulldogs Rescue initially as a commercial breeder release, so I am a bit shy but really want to be trusting of humans. I am a petite little thing and weigh less than 20 pounds. Fun fact, I don’t sound like a dinosaur when I bark and have a very normal dog bark. I also bark when I get excited and want to play. I sometimes can get a little territorial and want to guard my foster mom from my foster siblings, but I am easily redirected. I have two foster sisters who are showing me how to be a pet, and I am learning more and more every day.
Here are some of my non-negotiables in my search for my furever family:
1. I must get a lot of love and attention but, most importantly, patience as I learn to love and trust my new family. I love to cuddle on the couch or in bed with you. I also love my dog bed and frequently lay there and watch the world go by.
2. Speaking of the bed, I am not picky. Sure, my preference would be to sleep in bed with you, but I am just as content in my crate or cuddling with my Frenchie sister.
3. I am still learning about toys and am interested in the ball, but I have not quite figured it out yet. I have learned to chew on Nylabones and they are one of my favorites.
4. Treats are a must! I enjoy a nice treat or a chew bone from time to time. Treats also motivate me to go outside and do my business when it is very cold as I am not a fan of snow or cold.
5. Clothes. I am learning. My foster Ma got me some pj’s and I am not a super fan. I do love my sweater though!
6. I would do best with a fur brother or sister as I am still learning how to be your best friend. I take a lot of cues from those who know more than I do. My hope is that I can be your very best fur baby.
Now, some things you should know about me:
1. I am potty-trained and mostly alert by cues. I will stand at the door. I do my business promptly after I eat so stay close because I will want to go out ASAP.
2. I am spayed and up to date on vaccinations.
3. I do good in my kennel when you are gone. I am not a fan of being kenneled when you are home, and I will fuss if I cannot see you. Speaking of, my foster mom calls me a stalker because I always have my eyes on her no matter where she is.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. If you think you would be the perfect parent for me, please apply!
While in foster care, all our dogs are thoroughly vetted. Any discovered medical issues will be disclosed above. Our Lucky Bulldogs (and their smushie-faced buddies) are cleared by their vet for adoption prior to us accepting applications. All our dogs will be up to date on Rabies & DHPP vaccinations, up to date on Heartworm preventative after a negative Heartworm test, and spayed or neutered prior to being adopted out to their forever homes. Often times, our dogs are given dentals and sometimes nare-widening surgery if needed while under anesthesia. All surgical and medical history we have will be shared with adopters. Further details can be discussed with the foster volunteer during the phone interview for the applications that are chosen to proceed to the phone interview part of the adoption process.
All our dogs are crate trained unless otherwise noted on their "All About" pages.
We typically will accept applications for our available dogs for 1-2 weeks except in cases of overwhelming popularity where we may stop accepting new applicants sooner. Once we have stopped accepting applications, we will review them and proceed with a phone call with our top applications to chat about the dog being applied for, go over the adoption process, and answer any questions the potential adopter has. After phone calls take place, we will decide on our top applicant choice and proceed to contact them to schedule a home visit (in person or via video chat), and check vet and personal references before the adoption is ready to be completed. This process can take up to 6 weeks, but we do notify all applicants of the outcome.
