Precious Poppy came from a loving family, but her primary caretaker passed away and she found herself at a local shelter.
Poppy has been a perfect lady in her foster home, she is house trained and knows how to use a dog door. She prefers to be with her ‘people’ and will follow you all day long. She loves to lounge on a comfy couch and especially likes to perch on the very top of the sofa.
Poppy is ecstatic when we come home, she shows her excitement welcoming us home and covers us with kisses – its heart-warming coming home from work to know that you are loved!
Bedtime is easy with Poppy; she usually likes to start with sleeping across your legs… but usually she jumps down and finds a cozy bed or chair to spend the rest of the night.
Poppy is initially shy of new people, but she will warm up with a little treat and appropriate amount of belly rubs! She will very quickly attach to any loving home.
I’ve told you how wonderful Poppy is, and has years of love to give back, but she does have some special needs. She was recently diagnosed with diabetes. This means she needs insulin shots twice a day. Currently she is on an insulin that is about $25 and can be purchased at Walmart, the insulin is good for 42 days. Other supplies such as syringes are needed and preferably diabetes testing supplies. The supplies can be purchased at Walmart or online.
Poppy is easy to give her insulin shots and she doesn’t even realize we are giving her the shots. She also needs a diet that is primarily protein based. We currently have her on a non-prescription food purchased from Chewy.com it is about $37 for a 11-pound bag and will last about two months.
We have a volunteer in the Dallas area that will help show you how to do injections and testing, or you can work with your vet.
Poppy’s family will need to help monitor her insulin and blood glucose through home testing and/or through your vet. There are great support groups for diabetic dogs that are a valued source of information and support as well.
Because of the insulin shots, Poppy will need to be in a family that can feed her and give her injections on a fairly reliable schedule. Her meals and injections need to be as close to 12 hours apart as possible.
If you chose to adopt Poppy, despite her special needs you will gain a loving, adoring family member.
