Meet Poppy!

 

Poppy is an 8-week-old English Lab that was donated to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi and will eventually go on to be trained as a Diabetes Alert Dog (DAD). She is currently being fostered by a family in North Mississippi that has a Diabetes Alert Dog.

Thank you to everyone who suggested names and shared this little pup's story and photo. We'll update her progress on our website and on our Facebook page!
