About Poppy

Adoption Fee: $350
Shetland Sheepdog / Australian Shepherd
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Hi, my name is Poppy. I'm a very sweet, pretty feisty, and super smart and determined little 20 pound pup. I was born in March, 2020. I should not get too big since our vet thinks I may be a toy mini Aussie. I have a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia, which just means I'm a little wobbly. I have diminished balance and fine motor abilities, but otherwise am a normal puppy in that I am sweet and love to have fun. Any adopter should be prepared for my special needs. Please read this info about my condition before you apply to adopt me: I like to follow my foster humans and big dog friends around the house and yard and am a good listener. I've graduated to eating on my own from an elevated feeder, but sometimes need help getting clean after. Still working on potty-training. I can really boogie when I get going, so I would love a safe yard to play in. I cannot be in a home with stairs, because i can't navigate stairs of any kind. I'm not sure of my parentage, lots of folks think I look and act like a mini-Aussie but mostly I'm just me! I get along great with everyone I meet, including kids, cats, and other doggos. I'd thrive in an environment where my people are prepared to work with me to help me get stronger, and where it is easy for me to get around without too much help. Due to her condition, Poppy is not available to homes with small kids. It's too easy for her to be knocked over. Poppy is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. We do not ship our dogs. Poppy is available for a meeting and adoption in SoCal. A home visit and vet reference are required.
