Hi, I’m Poppy. I’m just a spunky, young lady of barely a year old. Back when I was a little girl I injured my leg and it didn’t heal properly. It’s a pain in my neck…or leg as the case may be…and it really bothers me, so I don’t use it all the time. While I was limping my way around Pasadena a couple of weeks ago, along came a man with a bunch of my furry friends in his truck. I jumped in to say HI and he took me to the Pasadena Humane Society. The doctor there checked out my bad leg and told me that I needed a femur head operation…it sounds like it hurts, so I’m not too excited about it! I guess they don’t do that surgery at Pasadena so they said something about putting me to sleep. I’m not exactly sure what they were talking about because I sleep on my own every night?!! Anyway, Stacy at UHA came along and said they’ll make sure I get my surgery, which between you & me…I am NOT looking forward to!! But, I am excited that they will find me a forever home!! I guess you win some & you lose some!! UHA doesn’t have $1500 lying around, so I am hoping that you’ll help them by donating toward my surgery fund. Thanks for your support…I promise to let you know how my new femur works!! And if you’re looking for a new critter…I’d be happy to be your forever pooch!
Love, Poppy
