Daisy's Story...
Daisy. I am in the military and have been assigned to move with my family to Hawaii in June. We do not believe that we are going to be able to bring Daisy with us to Hawaii for our assignment. First, the cost of transportation, quarantine, ect. is not feasible. Second, Daisy has hip dysplasia and we do not believe it would be in her best interests health wise to both endure a flight to Hawaii and the quarantine that she would have to endure in a kennel for up to 120 days in Hawaii. In 2009 we did replace one of Daisy's hips at a substantial cost, but her other hip also has dysplasia. Daisy was born in October 2008 and is 5 years old. We purchased her from Valley of Sweet Saints, a breeder in West Virginia. She is an absolutely wonderful dog and is the most loving and loyal dog to us and our four children (ages 2, 4, 7, 10). She has also been raised with another dog, a 75lb., 10 year old shepard mix. She gets along excellent with other dogs and loves to play with other dogs. Besides the hip dysplasia, she is absolutely healthy and maintains a healthy weight. She still manages to be active, and loves to run around outside for limited distances as her hip can give her some pain after sustained activity. Although we currently live on 25 acres, she is primarily an indoor dog and loves laying down and snuggling with the whole family. She is very social, loving, and just enjoys being surrounded by a family who will love her and take care of her. We are very sad to have to find a new home for Daisy, but have decided it is in her best interests. We are requesting your assistance in finding Daisy a new home if possible. We have tried to do so on our own, but without the assistance of a rescue organization, it appears that there is not a lot of interest by most in adopting a 5 year old very large dog. Daisy is a valued and treasured member of our family and everyone in our family is having a very difficult time with this decision. However, we have to be realistic and have realized that bringing her to Hawaii is not feasible. Our phone number is 434-984-0637. We live in Charlottesville, VA. We are scheduled to leave for Hawaii the 2nd week in June. Attached are some pictures of Daisy. We plan to call you this week to discuss any assistance your organization could give us and what other options we have to ensure Daisy gets a great home to grow into in the future. Thank you for your help and let me know if you need anything else from us. If you are interested in this wonderful dog, please go to www.saintrescue.org and fill out an application or feel free to call us for further information. Pls call Dawn McMahon 610-787-2353.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Daisy, a Pittsburgh St. Bernard dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a St. Bernard for sale in Pittsburgh, or seeking a St. Bernard dog from a breeder in Pittsburgh.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pittsburgh already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pittsburgh breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even St. Bernard breeders who help with St. Bernard rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pittsburgh paves the way for another one to be saved.
