Poppy The Puppy Appeal Raises Thousands

AN appeal to give sight to a blind puppy has raised £2,000.

That's half the amount needed to ensure that Poppy the boxer pup has an operation to allow her to be able to see the world normally.

Poppy, one of 11 puppies born to mum Lola, has severe cataracts on both her eyes.

Her devoted owners have vowed to do everything they can to help her see and have raised the £2,000 and next weekend will stage a sponsored walk with Poppy and some of her siblings around Locke Park.

Nikki explained: "We all love Poppy, she's such an amazing little character and as soon as we were told how bad her vision was we were determined to keep and try to help her."

Poppy follows her mum Lola all over the family home in Falmouth Close, Monk Bretton.

Nikki said: "She follows her mum everywhere, but she will have no real quality of life unless she can see more.

"She is quite good at getting around the house because obviously she sort of knows her way around. But when we're outside she sticks to Lola like glue and if Lola runs ahead of her Poppy is completely lost - she just can't see where she is going and that frightens her."
