Sweet Daisy Mae was found injured on 10/25/15. After an owner could not be located, she ended up spending a week at a local shelter, but is now in a foster home receiving some well earned TLC.
Daisy LOVES attention and affection. She loves to play but also like to be brushed and loved. This girl would be happiest if everyone in the house were in the same room and is often happy just to cuddle on the couch with her people. Daisy has not met a person she doesn’t like. Her happy, 'today is a great day' disposition shines through her expressions and body language. (Just look at her photos!)
She is estimated to be roughly 2 years old, and acts like a big puppy even thinking she is a lap dog. She’s a runner, and will need a good fence to keep her safe.
Daisy has begun training and improved her walking (not pulling) skills. She would be best placed with someone willing to continue and maintain her training, as she see's learning new things as a wonderful game, and it will insure she remains a delightful member of the family!
Daisy loves toys and has a blast with a kiddie pool.
Daisy likes other dogs but did have a fight with her foster sisters over a ball. It was decided that a laid back non-reactive male dog would be the best fit for a companion. She’s not been tested with smaller dogs, but loves playing with dogs her size or larger.
She’s quite interested in cats (maybe too interested) but no interactions have been tested. Daisy’s had minimal interaction with children, but may be too rambunctious for small children until additional training has improved her manners!
Daisy has been doing well with crate training but shows some anxiety when not in the same room with her foster siblings. Daisy does appear to have some separation anxiety and does not like to be left alone.
Labeled as a pit bull terrier mix, Daisy could just as easily be a boxer or other mix. She’s spayed, heartworm negative (and on preventative). She has been treated for anaplasmosis, low platelets, and hookworms.
Daisy has a previously injured left front leg (radial carpal luxation) that healed incorrectly, and causes her to limp, especially after jumping or running. It’s stable enough for now, but MAY need to be reviewed if it becomes painful or causes mobility issues. (We were told the only solution would be to shave down the bone and install hardware.)
Daisy is house-trained, but does have some leaking / incontinence issues that have responded to well to medication. This most likely means she will require this inexpensive medication (proin) for the rest of her lifetime and frequent rest room breaks are ideal.
If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!
The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Daisy is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.
