History: 
Poppy came into Senior Staffy Club, as she was not getting on with the small child in the home. 
 
She is a very well behaved girl and has clearly been a much loved pet. 
 
Current: 
Poppy is currently in our Worcester kennels. She is a kind, calm girl and waits very patiently each day for her volunteers to walk her. She is amazing to harness up. 
 
She is a super friendly girl, who definitely loves being around you. She hasn’t shown much interest in teddies, but she absolutely loves a ball - especially her kong balls - she loves to take them to bed with her. She happily allows you to take the ball off her. 
 
She is a well trained girl and sits when asked. Although she hasn’t shown any interest in treats as yet. 
 
Walking: 
Poppy is very strong on the lead, she is just so keen to be out and about. 
 
She is currently being walked in a non-pull harness and this seems to be working well for her. She responds well when she is asked to wait. 
 
She really loves sniffing all the hedgerows down the lanes. She is very alert and shows great interest in the birds when they fly out of the hedges, so we feel her prey drive is quite high. 
 
She was quite interested in the horse and sheep in one of the fields. We have not tested Poppy with dogs, but when we have passed dogs out walking, she sometimes barks and other times she ignores them. 
 
She hasn’t reacted to people, push bikes or traffic passing her whilst out and about. 
 
After her walk she loves nothing more than to climb up on the sofa and snuggle into you for a snooze. 
 
Travelling: 
Poppy has not travelled in our charity van yet, but will be tested in the next couple of weeks. 
 
Vets: 
The vets came to the kennels and Poppy was very well behaved for them to complete her health check, blood tests and vaccinations. 
 
Health issues: 
She has had a full health check, including blood tests, and the vet doesn’t have any concerns. 
 
Poppy has not been spayed yet. As she arrived to kennels in season, she will be required to be spayed in 3 months time and this cost will be covered by Senior Staffy Club 
 
Ideal home: 
• From what we have seen, and what her previous owner tells us, Poppy would need to be the only pet in the home. 
• Poppy can be left home alone for a short period of time (4 hours max). 
• Children would need to be 12 years plus as she is not comfortable around small children. 
 
Standard information: 
Poppy is microchipped and vaccinated. She will be spayed in June, at the cost of SSC. 
 
She is currently in our Worcester kennels, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her at least twice where she is now. 
 
There is a non refundable adoption donation of £120 for Poppy and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
