Poppi's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Poppi's Story...
PLEASE BE ADVISED, POPPI IS A TOUGH DOG AND HE STILL HAS SOME ISSUES DUE TO HIS MEDICAL CONDITION WHEN HE WAS FIRST FOUND. HE GETS EASILY HYPED UP AND IT TAKES A BIT TO CALM HIM DOWN. WHILE HE IS IN THIS STATE HE CAN HAVE MISPLACED AGGRESSION AND TRIES TO CHEW ANYTHING HE COULD GET HIS TEETH ON (including an arm or leg). HE IS ALSO NOT ABLE TO CONTROL HIS BATHROOM HABITS DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE LOST A GOOD PORTION OF HIS INTESTINES DURING HIS SURGERY. SO PLEASE, WHILE I UNDERSTAND HE IS ADORABLE AND IS A SWEET BOY ONCE HE IS CALM AND SETTLED, HE IS A HANDFUL DURING HIS "MANIC" PHASE AND HE IS NOT HOUSEBROKEN. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS PUP UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME & EFFORT THAT WILL BE REQUIRED TO EASE THIS GUY INTO A NEW AND STABLE LIVING SITUATION. WE WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT PLACE HIM BEYOND A 30 MILE RADIUS OF LINDEN, NJ IN CASE HE NEEDS TO BE RETURNED. NO EXCEPTIONS. HE WILL REQUIRE A "GORILLA" CRATE (EXTRA TOUGH) AND A SPECIAL, EXPENSIVE DIET ($120 a large bag). IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED AND FEEL YOU CAN MEET THESE CRITERIA, BY ALL MEANS, PLEASE SUBMIT AN ONLINE APPLICATION. HE HAS GOTTEN BETTER DURING HIS STAY IN HIS FOSTER HOME BUT WE WILL BE VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT WHERE HE GOES TO LIVE.

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 not a monster but can be 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 about 3 years old and weighs around 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 rough physical and psychological scars. He needs an owner 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 $200 and for this guy you need to be within 30 miles of Linden, NJ.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Poppi, a Linden French Bulldog/English Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a French Bulldog/English Bulldog for sale in Linden, or seeking a French Bulldog/English Bulldog dog from a breeder in Linden.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Linden already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Linden breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even French Bulldog/English Bulldog breeders who help with French Bulldog/English Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Linden paves the way for another one to be saved.
