When the mother and her daughter arrived to meet him, the poor animal was in bad shape, in desperate need of assistance, and everything pointed to his being at the correct spot. The woman’s daughter approached gingerly and caressed the dog they called Poopy, and she appeared pleased.
According to Lakisha, who spoke to The Dodo,
“I advised him to feed him because he appeared to be hungry.” I was parched and dehydrated. My husband Trey, our daughter Ja’Mya, and I washed him after I returned from running errands. He was flea-infested, had very little hair, and was filthy.
They prepared a comfortable bed for him that night in order to make him feel protected after everything that had occurred. The next day, the lady uploaded images of Poppy to several Facebook groups in the hopes of finding her family.
Lakisha went to a nearby shelter and vet to check whether she was microchipped so she could find out more about her family, but she didn’t find out anything. This soothed the woman, who had already developed feelings for the dog.
Poppy was afraid at first, but she just needed a little time to realize she was secure. The pit bull gradually revealed his charming personality and became closer to his new family.
A guy who noticed Lakisha’s Facebook post later wrote to her, claiming to be Poppy’s father. This had an impact on the family, as the dog was already regarded a member of the family.
It was evident from the man’s reaction and the dog’s reaction that he had not properly cared for the animal. The father concluded that they should stay with Poppy after witnessing how happy he was with his family.
“‘Now you have a good house,’ the man remarked as he walked away.”
Poppy was now officially a member of the family. Everyone was pleased, and the pit bull had progressed considerably. Poppy suffered some relapses as a result of her time on the streets, and doctors thought she wouldn’t survive it, but she fought her way back to her family.
“‘He wants to live now… with his new family,’ the vet stated.
Poppy made the finest decision she could have made when she went into that yard two years ago. He now has the most wonderful family and is adored by everyone at home.
According to his mother:
Our Poppy is a Smiths fan, and he is a Smiths fan. He belongs to us.
