Meet Poppy Jr

Poppy Jr is an incredibly sweet 1-1.5 year old Jack Russel Terrier who weighs 26 pounds. He gets along with every dog he meets and is friendly (but very shy) with people, except for children. Poppy is not a fan of children, so ARF requests households with children 12 and older if present. 


Since coming into foster care, Poppy has been working on his fears of strangers, loud noises, and fast movements. If a person approaches him in a way he feels cornered he may growl and shake in fear, and if this is not respected he may snap. Once you have gained his trust, he’s a cuddle bug and warms up to family members laying his head in your lap to ask for scritches and following you around. His new family will need to allow Poppy time to adjust in order to earn this trust. 


Poppy has not barked or howled since coming into ARF’s care but he is very vocal and makes cute noise to communicate. Besides cuddling, Poppy’s favorite thing to do is be outside and go for walks. He’s housebroken and will let you know when he has to go out by standing near a door or window. Since coming to ARF, Poppy has been very mellow as he recovers from being neutered and having stitches redone. When he feels better and we are able to see more of his personality, it’s likely that he’ll be a very energetic and playful dog. Poppy is a fast learner, does well in the car, and is crate trained.

Poppy Jr is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and neutered.  His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.

Poppy Jr's adoption fee is $400.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Poppy Jr fill out an Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Poppy Jr is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
