Poppet is a 2 year old male American Bully Cross. He is an absolute hit amongst the staff here at Teckels. Having come to us as a stray in a bit of a state, we’re happy to say she is finally ready to have a home of her own!
Being a stray, we unfortunately have no history for Poppet, so would like her new family to consider the time required to help her settle into a home environment as this may not be something she is used to.
Poppet absolutely loves people and is always happy to see us, she even greets new people like they are her new best friend and loves nothing more than lots of fuss and tasty treats. As she likes human company so much, we feel she would be best suited to a household where there is someone around for most of the day so she doesn’t get lonely!
She can be a little on the bouncy, enthusiastic side, so all family members will need to be of teenage age and over. Poppet does also have some doggy social skills but isn’t quite there enough to be able to share her home and her humans; she would like to be the only pet in her home but have some social friends when out and about.
Poppet does well with bigger dogs but her behavior around smaller pets will need some on-going training. Poppet is very typical of the ‘bullbreed’ group and can sometimes forget her own strength, especially when out for walks.
We do wonder if Poppet has had much opportunity to go for walks previous to arriving here, and her lead work and introduction to new environments will also need some work. Again, in typical bull breed style – she can lack some personal space awareness so her new family will need to have a big sofa and a sturdy lap!
