My Ideal Home: Hello world! My name is Poppy and I am so excited to tell you about myself! i'm looking for my forever home, and I think it'd be great to have some k9 siblings! I play really well with other dogs! I love food and you can get me to do anything for a little treat! Good news is that I sleep great through the night and willingly go into my cage. I am mostly potty trained! I try to let you know that I have to go by whining at the door! I am a little feisty and vocal at time though, for example i will growl a little at another dog if they try to take my bone but I've never got aggressive or tried to start a fight, and I never growl at humans. I don't like being placed on my back, and I don't like my feet touched, my foster family has been working on these issues with me, therefore I am improving. I love to play in the yard and run freely so I really will prefer a fenced yard. I do great with children and I just love to play! I am super sweet & loving but lets not forget that I am a bulldog and am very stubborn. I'm trained to sit and be patient before getting my food, I'm such a good girl! Due to my heart condition, please keep in mind that I get tiered easily and I CANNOT tolerate heat. Otherwise I don't know that I have anything wrong with me! After I get a good play in I love to take a snooze in my bed, the couch, or my crate. I'm so excited to meet my new family! Are you the one?
