Daisy (also known as Daisy Mae) is 3 years old (estimated d.o.b. 05/02/14). Guessed as a pitbull mix. Other guesses include heeler, hound, and springer spaniel. She was found injured and after an owner was not located she spent a week at a local shelter. She was then taken into foster care on 10/31/15.
Daisy LOVES people and is always happy to meet someone new. While she likes to run and play Daisy is just as happy cuddling on the couch and getting affection and is always happy when with her people.
Daisy loves the children (of all ages) she meets at adoption events but doesn’t always realize her size and strength so smaller kids may be accidently knocked over.
Daisy likes most dogs and wants to play but she can be possessive of her toys and people as well as doesn’t always read other dog’s cues (like when they don’t want to play anymore). A tolerant non-reactive (probably male) companion would be best. Daisy has not been tested with small dogs or cats.
Daisy loves toys (and destroying them), going for walks, meeting people, stalking squirrels, and has a blast with a kiddie pool.
Daisy is a bit of an escape artist and likes to be chased so she will need a secure yard and never off leash.
Daisy is house-trained and crate trained. She’s spayed, heartworm negative (and on preventative). She has been treated for anaplasmosis, low platelets, and hookworms.
Daisy requires medication for incontinence. She also has a previously broken left front leg (radial carpal luxation) that healed incorrectly, and causes her to limp occasionally, especially after excessive jumping or running. The surgeon who viewed her x-rays did not recommend any action at this time but MAY need to be reviewed if at some point it causes mobility issues. It does not slow her down in the least but occasionally will need a little TLC.
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.
