She is as sweet plus gentle as they come! She was once so tiny and mighty and is a true miracle survivor. I spent 10 days dropper feeding her and look at her now! There is not even 9 pounds difference between her and BHRR’s Oliver – the biggest of the litter at this time. She has really caught up! This litter is average/top average for Giant Breed puppies now! GO PUPS GO!
She is truly precious. Quiet, calm, sweet, soft, loves to snuggle and possesses a name that is feminine yet one that demonstrates inner strength for she has overcome unbelievable odds. Thanks again Allie for this amazing name for her! In honour of Remembrance Day also.
She cannot be rushed….to do so would have meant her demise. She needs to feel comfortable and then she will eat well. She needs to sniff and taste test and come back and do it all over again. She sizes things up before she makes any decision. When she commits, she is all in!
She is playful, kind and has a small side to her that is cutely feisty and my heart just flip flops with such warmth with how well she is doing!
Her coat is among the most softest I have ever felt and I have felt many soft furs of amazing dogs over decades! She is the best snuggle buddy. Her personality is equally soft….
She is smart and loves to watch TV with Kinsley! She was one of the first pups to pick up the TV and is simply adorable. She is patient and resourceful in getting what she wants from her litter-mates. While we may wish to put her in a glass bubble to ‘protect’ her that is serving her no benefit. It has been like watching when our kids were learning how to bike….there were spills and falls and we remained their safety net when/if needed and that is what we have done with BHRR’s Poppy and she was not babied. She has used her intelligence when she did not have the size of her bigger siblings – even though she was the first born, she was the smallest – to get what she wanted, be it prime real estate on a dog bed or a toy. She has been positively fascinating to watch in action!
She is such an easy keeper. Easy to do nails and to bathe plus clean ears! Travels great in a car!
If you do not have time to commit to a dog, please do not consider applying. She deserves a home that will take her for walks, strolls, new places, visiting friends and family and we are not seeking a super busy home. One that is average/normal in social activity both in and out of their home. A home that will commit to her needs and ensure that she is part of the family. She loves her ‘pack’.
She can go to a home with children over the age of 10 and homes that feel it is ok for their children to ride or lay on dogs, need not bother applying. This is completely inappropriate behaviour.
We could only afford to do three DNA kits and we did a draw as to which three puppies would be done and the results came back supporting that all three pups done were Irish Wolfhound/Great Dane. This does not surprise me in knowing what the puppymiller was breeding.
Knows words such as her name, sleepies, outside, snack, come, good and girl and sit and no plus treat and so many others!
She, like her litter-mates love their giant stuffies to and cuddle with. Much comfort has been given by these stuffies as their Puppymill Great Dane Mama Gem sadly rejected them shortly after birth.
She can go to a home either as an only dog or to a home that already has a right matched fit dog already in it. It is most essential that she have a strong dog social network. We have friends and so should she and it will help keep her well balanced & rounded. These puppies are very much a product of their genetics. If she is an only dog, she really would benefit from having a Giant stuffie.
She is beyond incredibly beautiful! She is a true BBBBB!
NOTE: Before applying to adopt her, please read our adoption processes and policies on our www.birchhaven.org in addition to BHRR’s Poppy’s detailed individual blog.
