There are no words to describe how much Poppy means to me. I just found this video of her from just after we rescued her from @socalbulldogrescue . When we got her her skin had turned black as she had lost most of her hair on her flanks from stress, she was skinny and wouldn’t let us pick her up. She was terrified of feet and would cower if we walked past her too quickly. As the weeks turned into months she slowly started to trust us. Each day she started to see how much we cared and how much love we wanted to give her. About a month in she let us pick her up for the first time. By three months her hair had grown back and she was a healthy weight. Three years in April and she’s no longer scared of feet or of people getting too close. She is my best friend. I love her more than I could ever put in to words. I count my blessings every day to have her in our life. Please please rescue a dog. Their only wish is for you to look after them. The love they repay you with is worth more than anything.
