    I am looking for a confident ( because she is big), committed (because she needs to be doing something), experienced (because she is green) person to take Poppy and enjoy her and give her some fun and enjoyment back. Poppy needs someone confident and strong as she will test the boundaries, once you have her attention she will give 100% but she is best described as a 4 year old in a 7 year old body, a teenage girl!
