Meet Poppy


This is Poppy.
She's CrAzY!!
We picked her up this morning from her foster mom.  She had a broken leg and ended up in foster care.
She was listed as a bedlington terrier x poodle, but I think she looks like a mini-mini-mini golden doodle.  She is so tiny!  They said she was 8 or 9 months old, but she acts much younger.  She needs a little fattening up and some muscle built up.  That shouldn't take too long at the rate she and Tibby are playing bitey face. 

On the car ride home.




At one point they had their noses crossed over each other.  It was so cute.

Big sister Tibby shows Poppy how to use a food ball.


I trimmed the hair that was covering over her eyes.  Soooo much better.  She can see!  And I can see her.


She reminds me of a scorpion with her curly tail.






She is very smart.  She was in the house for under an hour and she had already figured out - hand signal for sit, wait at the door to be let in/out and 'ok' for a release word.  She has also pottied outside a bunch of times.  Only one accident in the house, so far.

Things we have to work on - alert barking and a tiny bit of resource guarding.

Oh my goodness! Are you fostering her or is she Tibby's new dog?

Wow, she is SUPER cute!! I can see the Bedlington Terrier in her and (obviously) the poodle as well. It would have had to have been an apricot poodle though to get that coloring. I digress...

She looks like a pretty good match size-wise for Tibby. They look about the same height in that last picture.

Anyway, she looks like she has LOTS of personality and we hope the transition goes smoothly!
