Poppy has come into WARS as sadly her owner could no longer care for her. She is a bright girl who knows lots of commands and is happy to show you what she knows. For a larger dogs, she walks well on her harness and halti. Even though she is older, she still enjoys chasing a tennis ball and certainly won’t say no to a treat or 2. Being a husky X she needs regular grooming, which she very much enjoys and is a great way to bond with her.
Poppy will need a home with owners experienced with larger breeds and who have plenty of space and time for her. She could live with another suitable dog and possibly a confident cat. She could also live with children, used to bigger dogs, aged 12+.
Poppy is a Husky cross possibly Akita. Both of these breeds are highly intelligent and require lots of exercise and mental stimulation in order to keep them away from boredom and the poor behaviours that can stem from that. Husky’s in particular can be quite stubborn and will need a strong, firm but fair approach to training.
