Meet Poppy

Poppy is a 4 month old female Lab mix who weighs in at 16 pounds.  This pup's adoption fee is $450.  If you are still interested, please read more below.

Poppy is adorable!  She is getting used to being around her foster family and the resident Corgi. She tends to follow the 4 and 6 yr old humans around interested in what they are doing. She’s trying to figure out the 3 year old Corgi who is also female. She might do better in a home without another dog or with a male dog — it also might be the bossy personality of the Corgi she’s trying to figure out (as she likes to steal bones and lay on top of them) — this causes Poppy to bark as if she is telling on the Corgi. They love to play hide and seek inside the house and in the backyard. Overall, she’s extremely sweet, playful, shy and gentle. She’s all things puppy right now and needs supervision, frequent potty breaks and socialization. She loves to collect shoes and keep them in the dog bed or her crate. She’s learning to go potty in the backyard and sleeping at night in a crate next to the Corgi’s crate. Poppy experiences zoomies in the morning and evening and would benefit from a fenced in backyard and someone home the majority 

of the day. She’s expressive with her cute paws placing them on a human when cuddling or on top of the Corgi’s head. She loves to have her belly rubbed while cuddling on the couch. Poppy can’t wait to be your best friend! 

This pup is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and has an appointment to be spayed on April 12th.  If adopted prior, the adopter will need to agree to bring Poppy to her scheduled spay appointment, which will be covered by ARF. The new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. 

Please note ARF does not approve applications for any puppy under 6 months of age to families that live outside of Illinois and/or beyond 100 miles of Wheaton or Glen Ellyn, IL.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting this pup fill out an online application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.  ARF is an all volunteer organization.  Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved.  Thank you for your patience!

No Longer Available for Adoption

Please see our other dogs or cats available for adoption.

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!
