Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'



Miniature Rottweiler born ~4/17/2017 for ADOPTION

 Popplio has her own Instagram account @popplio_pokepup.  One of the conditions of her adoption is that her new owners maintain the account and participate in Umbrella of Hope social media crossposting.  You can review pictures of her for the last 4 months on her account to learn more about her day to day life

Popplio Pokemon is a 5 month old (as of Sept 2017), 8 pound terrier/chihuahua mix puppy. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
 
Popplio is a fun, spunky, affectionate puppy. She loves to play with other dogs and with people, but also appreciates a good cuddle when she's ready to rest. She has been raised with cats, dogs of all sizes and children and we think she would do fine in a family with other pets and dog savvy children (just because she is a puppy).
 
When she came into our program, Popplio's rear legs were splayed to the sides. She has had extensive physical therapy to loosen her joints, muscles and ligaments and is now able to use her legs for support. She runs well and is full of energy, but isn't able to extend her legs. Popplio loves to explore and play outside, she can run as fast as some of her foster companions, but too much time on rough surfaces can result in sores on her rear feet. We're looking into boots to protect her feet so she's able to go for more walks without injury.Because we don't know why her legs are the way they are, we cannot predict how they might change as she continues to grow and develop. We'll show adopters the stretches she's been doing so they can continue to keep those legs stretched out and moving as well as possible.
 
Popplio loves feet, she spends a lot of time sitting between the feet of her foster family. She loves toys of all kinds and races around carrying them. She'll play chase and tug and has plenty of kisses to share. She enjoys digging and burrowing in the sand at the beach, we're working on her leash walking. She'd be happy to go on hikes, but would prefer to ride in your backpack or a sling carrier.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption
