POPPY NEEDS A SPECIFIC HOME. SERIOUS ENQUIRIES ONLY, THANKYOU.
Meet poppy the 14 month old border collie.
Although poppy is cute and fluffy she also comes with many behavioural and physical difficulties and after been under assessment for a long time with us she is now looking for her new home.
Poppy is deaf so needs someone who has trained using sign language before, She has been working on this but we have found it hard to keep her focused due to her anxiety and she isn’t stimulated by treats or toys. When her anxiety kicks in all she wants to do is hide anywhere dark as this is a behaviour she has been allowed to do so her new owner will have to put lots of time and effort into undoing this. She is so used to hiding when she gets into a indoor environment we feel maybe someone with secure outdoor space might be what she needs. When she is disturbed or taken away from her. Poppy has bitten and shown aggression since arriving with us so a confident owner is a must.
Rehoming poppy will be a long hard process so someone who has lots of time and patients who’s willing to work with us and her is needed to gain her trust. Previous dog experience is a must.
Poppy is a beautiful Blue Merle collie. Who is a lovely young dog full of energy and has a zest for life. She gets on well with other dogs however, Poppy has some behaviour issues relating to being in an home environment these issues include wanting to hide and shut herself away if she becomes unsure and anxious. she becomes anxious in enclosed environments and has been known to bite in addition to this she is deaf. Therefore, Poppy is on the look out for a child free home with someone who can provide her with the training and give her the time, patience and consistency that is needed in order to develop trust.– Linda mallard, Happy Harvey’s dog coaching with lin.
