Facts about Poppi

  • Breed: French Bulldog/English Bulldog Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Poppi. He has a horrible story but he is well on the road to recovery and is doing much better now. Poppi was found near death tied to a tree in the woods wearing a diaper. When the diaper was removed he was found to have a foot of his intestines hanging outside his body that was covered in maggots. He was rushed over to the Union Vet and stabilized (thanx Isabelle Perez). However, his medical condition was critical and he had to be rushed down to one of the big emergency hospitals immediately. So off we went to Red Bank in the rain with me yelling at cars the whole ride down to get the heck outta my way. I had a very special patient who was running out of time. The docs down there took one look at him and wasted no time in prepping him for surgery. And that started his odyssey to feeling better that was months in the making. We have no idea how this poor dude ended up in such a dire condition. But after having a good portion of his intestine removed, we started the long process of getting him better...which continues to this day. As for his current physical condition, Poppi is on a special (expensive) diet that we are unsure if it's a temporary thing or will require a lifelong maintenance. He needs a daily dose of pro-biotics (raw goats milk) and we are still working out the best course of medicine for him. So while he is 90% better, I can't say he is 100% there yet. But we have taken him as far as we can right now. The only thing left is trial and error to see what works best to keep him "regular".
Now as for temperament, Poppi is a rough & tumble kinda guy. He gets super amped up when a ruckus erupts in my house (doorbell, everyone rushing for the door to go outside, etc) so it's probably best for him to be an only dog or with a laid back chill kinda pooch. He has a tendency to go for feet if he gets super worked up. He needs a calm environment and an experienced dog owner. And definitely no kids who can add to the chaos that could set him off. It's very manageable however in the spirit of full disclosure, I do want any potential home to be aware of his issues. That being said, he is also an affectionate and loving guy. He prefers sleeping by my feet rather than in his crate. He does have a bad habit of chewing on electrical cords tho so make sure there are a lot of sturdy chew toys and bones for him to nosh on.
Poppi is abou 3 years old and weighs about 35 pounds. He looks like either a larger Frenchie or a mini English Bulldog. He has the remnant of an English Bully tail with their huge, oversized feet. He is not an "easy" dog but if you know what you are doing, Poppi shouldn't be too difficult to handle.
His night time snoring is enough to keep you laughing for hours on end!
Some things to keep in mind before applying for this guy:
He is incontinent as of today and the vet doesnt think he will get much better.
Because of his bsthroom issues, he will require what is termed a "gorilla crate" for times he is left alone in the house. It has a grated floor and collects waste in a removeable tray plus he has a tendency to bend the bars of a standard wire crate with his teeth.
He is super amped when he is first released from the crate and needs to be led directly outside or he grabs anything in his path and tries to destroy it (especially cardboatd boxes)
He is on a special prescription diet and it cost $120 a large bag.
Poppi is not a dog for everyone and yes, he is adorable but he does come with a lot of baggage thru no fault of his own. He had a rough start in life and is left with some pretty tough physical and psychological scars. He needs an ownrr tough enough to deal with them.
If you are interested in meeting this little meatball please submit an online application located at www.allstar.petfinder,com. There is an adoption fee of $250 and for this guy you need to be within 25 miles of Linden, NJ.

About All Star Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

All Star Pet Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit, no-kill organization formed in April 2006. We don’t have a facility & are comprised solely of foster homes for homeless pets. Our mission is to network with other shelters & rescue groups to take in animals needing a new start. We don’t discriminate based on breed, age or health status & only place the animals in loving & responsible homes. We also work to educate the public about the benefit of spaying or neutering their animals & the usefulness of micro-chipping.

We receive no public funding & count on animal lovers to help provide the medical care & supplies necessary for the health, safety & comfort of our rescues. Monetary donations are always needed & greatly appreciated. It’s because of monies donated that we’re able to continue our work for the animals. We’re a recognized 501c3 organization so your donations are tax deductible.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable pups are all in foster care so arrangements need to be made to meet them. Please contact us at allstarpets@comcast.net or better yet, submit an online application located at www.allstar.petfinder.com. We will be in touch to make an appointment to bring the pet to meet you.

Our Adoption Process...

We do have an adoption fee which goes right back to the animals for food, medical treatment, etc. Yo do have to sign a contract. We also do have certain requirements when placing our animals, some are general & some can be based on the situation.
