Pretty Poppy is an 8 year old German Shorthaired Pointer who was rescued from a Spanish shelter and is now in a foster home in Tamworth in Staffordshire, through The Fairy Dog Fosterers.
Poppy was owned as a hunting dog in Spain but before she turned 2, she was turned out because she hadn’t taken to hunting. This beautiful girl then spent the next 6 years in a cage!
Since being in foster care in the UK she’s proven to be house trained, brilliant with both grownups and children, and super affectionate. She loves cuddles!
Poppy is so grateful to finally have home comforts and love. Within 2 days of being in foster, with help from a new dog friend, she’d mastered playing with a rope toy for the first time!
Look at this lovely older lady … POPPY Has been confined to a concrete jail for 6.5 out her 8 years … living in squalor with no walks and no love And absolutely NO TOYS FOR 6 AND A HALF LONG YEARS !! she has been in her wonderful foster home for just 2 days and look She’s learnt how to play for the first time in her lifeShe’s a very good girl … loves cuddles and children She’s great with other dogs (as you can see) once she knows they’re not going to hurt her We are told that she’s not a cat ? fan but will test her ourselves just to double check Does anyone have a permanent home for this gorgeous girl ? Adoption fee and home check applies

Poppy is good with other dogs but can be nervous when she first meets them. She could live with another calm, friendly dog or as an only pet. Cats are a no thank you. Or rather, a yes please, I’d like to chase that!
Poppy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and flea/worm treated. She’s in fine fettle and ready to find her forever sofa. Could that be with you?
If you can offer Poppy the happy home she seeks, please contact The Fairy Dog Fosterers as follows:
