Personality Color: orange

Orange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!

Bio data

Poppy has been spending some time in foster. Here’s what the humans have to say about her:

“Poppy is a sweet beagle foxhound mix that is about 1 years old. She wandered up, likely after being used for hunting near Falls Lake. She is terrified of gun shots and loud popping noises, so its likely she ran off. Her original owner never claimed her so she has stayed with us for the last month.

Poppy is incredibly sweet with humans. She will give kisses, loves pets and scratches, and wants so much to be a lap dog, lol. She is a little jumpy when she gets excited, but she is learning “down”. She does well with kids, but can be a lot for those under age 7. She gets along well with every dog she meets including our other 5 and our neighbors’ 2. She has also loved eith our 3 cats. They get a little annoyed with her nose, but she respects their “no”.  She has a lot of energy, which works well when we are able to let her run and play with our other dogs, take her for long walks, and let her explore our farm.

However, heading into her heartworm treatment she must be kept calm and less active. Our home is not going to work for this. She is working on longer periods of crate training, and does very well in a crate overnight. During the day she wants to be out and will vocalize her dismay when on restriction (we had to keep her crated after her spay). She loves soft things so will steal shoes, napkins, stuffed animals, etc. She hasn’t ripped them up so far, and will give them back without a struggle. But keep an eye on her, and have lots of dog toys to trade out for these things 🙂 We have a tub of dog toys she likes to go take from and make piles around the living room.

Her ideal new foster home will be one where she can be kept calm. A home with lots of love to give, experience with keeping higher energy dogs calm for their heartworm treatment, and able to take her on lots of short walks. Someone with creativity in keeping this sweet girl occupied will be a plus.”
