Poppy is a wonderful dog with a winning personality. He is sweet affectionate and so smart. He is also completely blind. The vet thinks he has been blind since birth since he navigates the world so well.As he is blind, he finds comfort in others. He does not like to be left alone. He would do better in a home with other dogs. At times he will give a quick single bark almost asking “is there anyone out there?” He is reassured if I speak to him or he realizes another dog is around. He will do the same thing in the morning to make sure we are up.Poppy is a cuddle bug. He loves to cuddle up in a nest type dog bed with a toy near his humans. He will actively seek out human companionship. This boy is not particularly active, and does not explore the fenced yard. He knows some basic commands and learned to navigate our steps. He is not bad on a leash, but since Poppy is blind his nose works over time on our walks. He loves to sniff and sets the pace.He is wonderful with children and not fearful of strangers. He attempted to chase a friend’s cats, but being blind, cats are pretty safe. Poppy will make a wonderful companion for the right family. Please , no sight unseen or long distance adoptions for Poppy. Given his disability, it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure we have a good match.
