Poppy is hanging on the telephone for you!

‘My name is Poppy and I’m a super special girl looking for a super special home. My new friends here at South Lincs love to tell me how smart I am. I have needed some support in settling in here and a I have been a total superstar with my training. Most of my training has been helping me cope with other dog as I really struggle not to bark at them – I just find other dogs really scary! I am getting better but would prefer a rural home where I don’t need to see them.

I am a really active girl and really love my peaceful countryside walks and I am hoping my new family will be able to take me for at least an hour every day. I love to be doing lots of different training and would love to learn new tricks.

I would be happy to be left on my own for around two hours with a nice tasty Kong or food puzzle toy but once I’m feeling more settled we can build it up gradually over time.

Poppy is waiting for your call

I do really need an adult only home please with no children or visiting children under the age of 18.

It can take me a little while to make friends and I can be worried by new people, therefore I’m hoping my new family would be happy to come and see me quite a few times before I come and join your home.

Once we’ve taken the time to make friends I am super affectionate and love to climb all over you for hugs and kisses. Please contact me at South Lincolnshire on 01205260546 or email them on slincs@jerrygreendogs.org.uk

Don't let your dog get bored

Feel that your dog may be getting bored? You will have heard the buzzword ‘enrichment’ when training your dog but what does it actually mean?

Enrichment improves and enhances your dog’s mental state using a range of activities designed to challenge and exercise their brains. These activities encourage your dog to problem solve, learn new skills and become more confident.

Keeping enrichment exciting and engaging is super important for helping your dog stay calm and entertained when home alone. In our Home Alone Help webinar we mention leaving your dogs home alone with safe enrichment, such as stuffed Kongs or similar toys which can be filled with food.

We're grateful for your donations

Getting tired of the same walks every day? Your pooch may be thinking the same. We’ve put together some top tips to help make their walks more mentally enriching.

Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram socials for lots more ways of providing enrichment for your dogs.

Providing lots of mental enrichment is also important for the dogs while in our care.

We are always very grateful for any items that are donated to the centre. We are always on the look out for new ways of keeping our dogs mentally enriched.

Our gates have now reopened for donations – if you can spare any food, puzzle toys, kongs, snuffle mats or other similar products we would be very grateful!
