Meet Poppi

Poppi is a lively little girl who is believed to be a Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog (with tail). She is in every way true to her breed. She is an independent pup, who is confident and assertive. She likes to play with the older cattle dogs where she is living at the moment, however sometimes forgets that she is tiny in comparison to them. Her current foster home has also afforded Poppi exposure to the cats living there, and although she thinks and acts like they are dogs, when she tries to round them up and play with them, she has done them no harm, so would be suited to a home where there is a dog savvy cat. She loves to play with her toys and while she enjoys the company of the other dogs, she is also more than happy to spend time alone, throwing her toys herself and then chasing them. She is also happy to play with a stick or loose tree branch and will entertain herself for ages with them. While she is only a pup at the moment and has needle like teeth and a tendency to mouth and chew as pups do, she would be best suited to a home where there are older children or no children. Poppi is an active puppy and would love to be part of an active family who will encourage her to direct her energy in a positive way, through play and exercise. And while she is young, playful and can be a bit rough at play, she also has a softer side and enjoys sitting quietly for a pat and a cuddle.

Poppi was adopted on 16 May 2008 after 3 weeks in foster care
