Poppy is still waiting for his perfect family and house to call home. In the meantime, we had another great visit. I can’t get enough of this guy. He came to my place to meet the family and see where I live. He can’t negotiate stairs very well, so the 8 inside our front door gave him enough anxiety to induce an episode (Poppy has stress induced episodes that he can’t control. They look and sound aggressive, but he really wants to hide until they pass and shake it off as fast as possible so he can get back to what’s important: cuddles). After the episode, Poppy let me carry him down the stairs. He had more trouble with our low light and hard floors. He fell over a couple times just walking around, which startled him a bit.
We made some lunch to take with us and set out for a hike up the creek (he loves hiking AND the creek). Poppy doesn’t have as much trouble on trails as he did in the house. He’s a little uncoordinated and I’m not sure if it’s because he can’t see where he’s going or something else.
Poppy is one of a kind. He’s a living legend. He’s a dog who will make your small heart grow three sizes. If you would love this guy and have the patience and consideration to work with him when he needs your help, you’d be silly not to go meet him. He’s at Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue waiting for some interesting people to love. #adoptable
