This beautiful German Shepherd is Poppy. She is an absolutely amazing dog who is truly deserving of a fantastic home. She came to us from Ashton pound, and is now waiting for a perfect family to come and make her theirs. She is a more mature lady, at 7 years old, and is very friendly, absolutely loving human companionship. She loves her walks, and, as she can sometimes be a little strong on the lead in certain situations, we have found that walking her using a canny collar is very effective at preventing excessive pulling. She is fully house trained, loves to play ball and loves a trip to the beach. She is perfect in a house. She is completely unsuitable as a guard dog. The home that we feel will best suit Poppy is a home without cats. She gets along with some dogs, and dislikes some others, therefore a meet and greet would be essential if she is to go to a home with another dog, and we will give priority to applications from families that do not have another dog, and have experience of the breed or similar restricted breeds as adult owners. We hope to find a home in a rural location for her as she can be excitable when she meets other dogs, therefore an area where she does not meet many dogs when out and about will be preferable. We will also prioritise applications from families where there are no children under 16, because she is a restricted breed and cannot be under the control of anyone under the age of 16. There is a requirement that she be muzzled in public.
Poppy has been neutered, vaccinated and Chipped (chip number 941000016284713, origin Ireland). If you are interested in adopting Poppy please submit an expression of interest form which can be found in the following link
