I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.

If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website http://www.livingwithkidsanddogs.com. The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.
Daisy is a darling Jack Russell terrier/cocker spaniel mix who was saved from being euthanized by a good Samaritan. Her family retired and decided they were done with dogs, so they put down their shepherd and wanted the vet to put Daisy down too—but he refused. A wonderful man stepped up to foster Daisy and she is now in foster care waiting for someone to love her for the rest of her life. When you meet her you will NEVER BELIEVE she is 14 years old. She loves to be outside, to go for walks, to roll in the grass and then come home for a good snuggle. Daisy has been fully vetted and had a full dental and the vet gave her a completely clean bill of health! While Daisy’s time on earth may not be measured in years, her love for her people and her companionship will make her a wonderful addition to most any household. She will do best in a family without young kids, but she gets along with other dogs (we are not sure about cats) and she is easy to have around. Daisy’s adoption fee will be minimal to the right home. Are you the person who will be blessed to be Daisy’s adopter and to love her for the time she has left? Daisy is with Happy Hound Rescue, a local 501c3 nonprofit all volunteer rescue. She has been spayed, is up to date on shots, is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention, worming, and has a microchip.
