Facts about DaisyDuke

  • Breed: Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Basenji Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Daisy Duke was dumped as a pup and was not well socialized and not treated very well by the original owner. She panics when not with another dog and is extremely shy and skittish. She is extremely slow to trust. Well-fenced yard is a must. Daisy Duke also requires a no corn, no wheat, no soy diet. Experience working with abused dogs a plus. Best with a bigger male as she sometimes bullies smaller dogs. She is a good girl, but needs a lot of patience and TLC. She is currently in foster care.

About LARAS House

About Our Shelter...

LARAS House (Limestone Animal Rescue and Adoption Shelter) started in 2008 with a group of volunteers. The group started because there was no animal rescue organization in Limestone County, Texas. We are still the only no-kill rescue in Limestone County.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have regular adoption events locally and in surrounding areas. Locations we have held adoption events have included: Mexia, Groesbeck, Corsicana, Ennis, Waco, Tyler, Grapevine, Dallas, Fairfield, and Buffalo, Texas. Call for info on our next event. Of course you can always come to our shelter to adopt. We are out there everyday usually between 10 am and 3pm. If you are coming from out of town, please call first to ensure that someone will be there to help you. Some days we are volunteer staffed.

Our Adoption Process...

We screen potential adopters to make sure they are able to adequately care for the animal they are interested in. You can then fill out and application and pay the adoption fee and complete the adoption. We occasionally have more stringent adoption requirements for special needs dogs or in special situations. Call and ask if you are interested in one of our pets.
