Poppins is a very sweet girl with a gentle disposition. She was found roaming the streets of North Carolina until someone saved her and brought her to K9 Lifesavers. While very gentle with people of all ages, Poppins can be a bit anxious around young children and loud sounds, so she might do better in a calmer environment. She is shy at first, but will become comfortable with time. Poppins is not a lap dog, but likes to be around her people. Poppins does very well on a leash, and she hardly ever barks! Poppins doesn't care too much about her toys, but will get the urge to play and romp now and again. In short, Poppins is very sweet and gets along with everyone. She will appreciate a loving and peaceful home.
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit
