Austin Area Dog In Need Of A Good Home!!!

Wonderful dog needs a great home! About 1.5 months ago, I adopted Poppy. She is such an affectionate dog who loves to play and is great for an active lifestyle! I love her very much, but she is not happy in my apartment. It is just too small for a dog of her energy level.

Even with daily walks she still has energy leftover. There is nothing wrong with her, she just needs a backyard to be her happiest!

Poppy is two years old and up to date on all shots and treatments, knows sit, and is almost totally crate trained. She is also leash trained. On top of all this we are giving her training spray, leash, collar, kennel, toys, food, treats, etc.

She is good with kids, playful with other dogs, and respectful towards cats.

If you or anybody you know is looking for a dog please send me a message! Willing to go into Hill Countey, San Antonio, Belton/ Temple, etc. to drop her off!
