Hello and Welcome Poppy Rocket!
The Story So Far
We are absolutely delighted to announce that we are officially adopting Poppy Rocket today! Poppy came to us as a timid dog following a period in foster when she was relinquished to Dizzy Chihuahua Rescue.
Poppy Rocket earned her name when she discovered her freedom to run on our favourite Warren beach in Abersoch, North Wales. Poppy has been lead trained and walked brilliantly to heel on a lead but being off lead was a whole new experience.
Initially uncertain, we soon knew she would not be the type of dog to bolt as she stayed close to heel at all times. As her confidence developed Poppy Rocket discovered she could run over the rocks, roll in the sand and enjoy sniffing the coves and rock pools with Coco and Myla. Poppy's muscle strength and overall condition continued to improve with a new 5 star rated diet and her 'rocking' little amble became a full on run.
Poppy no longer has a dull coat and dandruff which is testimony to her diet and time outdoors building up her strength.
Poppy Rocket is totally adorable and non confrontational towards Coco Bell and Myla Moo, but has a very persistent and endearing way of getting exactly what she wants and sitting in exactly the spot she has set her heart on. After a few growls the three of them have settled in well together and curl up together each morning as I sit and work at my desk.
Poppy loves cuddling the humans as well as the pack and is very fond of her chi daddy. Poppy is still a little unsure of our daughter Olivia who is 15 but is developing a good bond with Alex and we know her past has made her very wary of children and strangers so our calm home is the perfect sanctuary for her.
Poppy has recently been spayed and is up to date with her injections. We are working on improving her teeth and she likes to chew Yak's milk chews and goats ears. When she has fully recovered we will be having a full dental assessment and her teeth appear to be in good condition apart from needing a clean at some point in the near future.
Say hello to our little star and give her a warm welcome!
