April 2012 Update:Poppy was adopted but has returned. So it happens. He is a good boy and settling back into his foster home. He enjoys playing with his fellow foster doggies as well as the family owned pets. He is good with cats too. Poppy is now just over a year old. He is housetrained. Poppy is a fun little guy who enjoys a lap as much as the next chichi.
Earlier post: Poppy is a male chichi puppy. He is just about 10 months old and full of fun loving character! He is a sandy tan and small, even by chichi standards. He loves to cuddle, play with toys and chew little rawhides. He is housetrained, however, with all the snow, housetraining is, well, challenging. Poppy has a really short coat and is what I would call a southern chichi.
Poppy is in a foster home with teen-age girls who he adores, another chichi and a large dog. He is fine with dogs and cats. He is a puppy and has, what older dogs would call, annoying puppy behavior!
Poppy loves to sleep snuggled under the covers with his humans, he is a delightful cuddle bunny.
Poppy is hysterical to watch .. this dog has so much character!
Poppy landed in a local animal shelter as a stray. To say he was frightened is an understatement, actually, no one could get near him. I ended putting on a pair of those big leather gloves and just let him bite the fingerless fingers of the gloves until he wore out and then I scooped him up and carried him out of the kennel area and all that barking noise! Once out, he almost immediately transformed and became loving and playful. Chichi’s are amaing little dogs.
This boy is for you if you love chichi’s and want fun and love in your life!
