THIS IS PopTart…aka “Poppy” in her foster home!  This very smart cookie is a diminutive, tri color, 10 lb, ShihTzu/CKC/Poodle (according to the hoarder), with a very silky coat, like a Cavalier King Charles (CKC)!  We cannot confirm whether she is hypoallergenic or not.   She is one of the six pups we got from a hoarding situation, she has been bred but she is a sweetheart who gives kisses! 

PopTart will keep you laughing as she has the BEST personality.  First, she is the warden of the house, so if the cat is scratching at her post, she will “rat” on her as if to say “that’s not okay!” then throw shade!  Yes, she loves cats!  Second, she likes to steal stuff — socks, paper, whatever is laying around.  She will make you a better housekeeper!  Third, don’t try to make her sleep in a dog bed — “those are for dogs,” she says!!  It’s a human bed only!  And, she knows bedtime and the lights MUST go off!!  Talk about cuddle buddies…there is a picture of PopTart in the dictionary where it says “cuddle.”  She is a bit of a lazy bones, probably because she was never walked.  She is getting stronger every day, but still doesn’t love her walks.  In fact, if you drop her leash, she will go running home to say, “I’m done” (even if she isn’t).  She will always use PP pads inside, so that’s a good thing!  She does a funny trick when she is walking — she emulates humans and walks on her hind legs as if to say, “see, I’m just like you.”  PopTart gets along with everyone….cats, kids, humans.  She is OK with dogs, but would prefer to be your one and only…or with a cat.  She probably didn’t have her own things and she should be treated as special as she is.  She is a dollbaby…she would not be a good fit for a sedate home as she does need socializing and outings/activity to experience the world.  Her new home will need to be patient with her as she “catches up” with those things she hasn’t had in a very long time if ever.  Does that sound like you?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
