Meet Daisy Duke, a beautiful Labrador Retriever mix girl.  Daisy loves people, generally does OK with other dogs with proper introductions, and is doing well with her foster mom's cat. Daisy is a happy dog who loves to run around outside, but she also enjoys just relaxing and goes in her crate when asked. She simply adores being touched and is a velcro dog who leans into affection. Daisy Duke is very trainable and knows basic commands like sit, stay, wait, down, and off.  Daisy Duke is a kitchen raider and her family will need to make sure she doesn't steal their dinner off the counter! She is a loving girl and will make a great new addition to the family. 

 

This lovable girl is still mastering leash-walking, but is easily corrected. She's also taken to snuggling with her foster doggie-siblings. Ask us about Daisy Duke!

 

Update from Daisy Duke's foster: We have gotten her on a very regular bathroom schedule and is doing really well in the house and in her crate. She makes a wonderful walking partner,  staying right by my side on a nice loose leash for the most part, and once inside she is also a terrific couch buddy/blanket. This girl loves nothing more than to press herself up against her people and get hugs and head scratches.  If I'm sitting on the couch,  and have a free hand (or even if I  don't) she will just lay her head on my lap and look up at me with those big,  brown eyes in hopes of getting some love. She also enjoys zooming around my backyard with or without the other dogs,  chasing toys around the floor (which she tosses for herself), and wrestling with my cat,  who always wins.  I love the personality on this dog!

 

Daisy Duke needs a loving forever home to lavish love and attention on her. Please open your heart and home to Daisy Duke!

The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes the cost of heartworm treatment and routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

About Dogs XL Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs XL is a new “breed” of dog rescue, committed to the philosophy that there is no such thing as a perfect dog or a perfect home. The right dog is out there for everyone who is willing to open heart and home to a canine companion. Dogs XL operates like a social networking service for dogs, designed to match people and pets based on the principles of compatibility and compassion.

As the name implies, Dogs XL specializes in finding homes for large dogs (typically 75lbs+). Large dogs are often first to be put to sleep in shelters because medical treatment and food for large dogs is more expensive than for small dog. Large dogs also take up more space at the shelter and on transports to adoptive families. Although owning a large dog is not for everyone, large dogs have many unique and endearing qualities. Here at Dogs XL, we believe the larger the dog, the more there is to love.

Occasionally, Dogs XL will intervene on behalf of a smaller dog with an XL personality. Dogs XL also works with other local rescue groups to facilitate adoptions to families that might be a better match for a smaller dog.

Dogs XL is an all volunteer, non-profit animal rescue group.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dogs XL has adoption events on weekends at local pet supply stores in the greater Baltimore area. Schedule of Events is posted on the www.dogsxlrescue.org

Our Adoption Process...

To begin the process, adopters fill out an adoption questionnaire are contacted by an adoption coordinator within 72 hours for an interview. After the initial interview, if the adopter has current or recent pets we call the veterinarian to confirm that they are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered. When possible, a volunteer will schedule a home visit to help advise adopters on how to "puppy proof" the home. Alternatively, the foster family of the dog to be adopted may come to the home to help introduce the dog to its new environment and conduct the home visit simultaneously.

Adoption Fees
Puppies 6 months and under: $350

Adult dogs 7 months to 8 years: $300

Senior Dogs 9+ years: $250

*Adoption fees help cover the cost of transportation to the Baltimore/DC area, boarding, and vetting, including vaccinations, heartworm/Lyme disease testing, flea/tick/heartworm preventative and spay/neuter surgery.
