ADOPTED! Sweet, unsinkable Daisy is one of those pups who just loves life, even though it hasn’t always been good to her. If you need a happiness counselor, she’s your girl!
Daisy was found by a good Samaritan, who spotted her—hungry and scarred—foraging through the gutter for food. That good soul opened her car door and called to her. Daisy hopped right in and never looked back. That’s the kind of dog she is.
Daisy is about 2-3 years old and a petite 45 pounds. She has a great smile, fun puppy energy, and is the life of the party. She is crate-trained, housebroken, and treat motivated.
Once in our care, we learned that Daisy has luxating patellas—i.e., dislocating kneecaps, a painful condition that gets worse over time. Fortunately, surgery generally fixes it, and we were lucky enough to find a medical foster who is willing to get her through it.
Daisy just had her first surgery and is doing very well. Once that knee is healed, she will get the other done. Other than that, she is healthy, sassy and buff.
As far as her ideal family goes, Daisy might do well with a laidback male dog (she is friends with one of our volunteer’s low-key male pups). However, she is loving being an only dog. She’s not a cat person. While she’s too bubbly for babies and toddlers, we know she does great with older kids (the good Samaritan’s family included a 10-year-old, and they were besties).
If you’re looking to adopt immediately, Daisy probably isn’t your cup of tea…unless you can’t wait and want to be her nursemaid. Daisy’s surgery has been scheduled for November 17th and will require at least 6-8 weeks to recover. After that she will still need to ease back into living an active dog life. She is going to make someone a wonderful pet. And if you would like to donate to her veterinary fund, we would be very grateful!
