Daisy was found abandoned at a highway rest stop in an unincorporated area near Canton (no microchip or tags) with nothing but a bucket of water nearby and some old pizza someone had left for her.  

Daisy is an American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever mix (her foster thinks the Lab is winning!). She received her basic puppy shots and is spayed.

She loves to run, jump, play, and be active. She can jump very high and seems to be on springs! She is sweet, loving, loyal, and very affectionate with her people. She loves kisses and snuggles. She is very protective of the people she attaches to. She gets excellent reports from doggie daycare- they say she plays well with all the dogs. She does not seem to do well with other dogs *in the home*, growling, and trying to keep them away from the other household members, and also scrapping over a bone. This behavior has improved a bit with doggie daycare attendance. When introduced to the foster's extended family, while timid and scared at first, she warmed up to them within one visit and was very comfortable around them. She was reported to have done well around a 1.5 and 2.5 year old (stayed in their house for a week), and a 7 year old child (all boys), but barked aggressively at a 6 year old girl and a 3 year old boy (in public)-- because her behavior around children seems to vary, it would be best done with strict adult supervision and probably older youth. She travels well in the car; sleeps in her crate at night and on nap breaks.

Daisy can not be around cats. The foster family has 2 cats and she has fought with them many times. Most recently one of the cats punctured Daisy's eye (treatment complete, eye has healed), which did not seem to deter Daisy. There appears to be no long term damage to the eye, per the vet. Daisy has not bitten anyone, but has barked very aggressively at strangers several times, especially men. We have been working hard to introduce her to strangers using treats, and she is beginning to warm up to people more quickly, and has made several new human friends recently. This has improved considerably since her daycare attendance. 

Daisy loves to fetch and retrieve a ball, and will chew a bone for hours on end; she gets upset for some time when she is in the crate when you are home with her, but she will settle down. She does not like to be startled or surprised and seems very timid in the dark. She is afraid of loud trucks (like the trash truck), and skittish when she is in areas with lots of cars driving by. Daisy loves to be near her loving owners, and likes to lay on the couch together.

Although daycare says she does very well, our 12 old shepherd dog does not do well around her and they have scrapped over bones (not too serious, more concerned about the cats). This has improved some since her daycare attendance.

About Dallas Cat Lady Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

We work with local shelters to give cats and kittens more time to find just the right home. We have placed over 3,000 kitties with new families since 2013. We are also avid promoters of the Trap-Neuter-Release process to assist in the reduction of homeless cats by spaying and neutering and education of the public on the basics of the process.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have a cat adoption event every Saturday from noon-8 pm at Petco Prestonwood on Montfort between Arapaho and Beltline (just across the street is Addison). We also have adoptable cats and kittens on display at Petco Casa Linda, Petco Carrollton, Petco Lovers Lane, Petco Prestonwood and Petco Mesquite all the time.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process involves a personal interview with one of our adoption counsellors. Potential adopters are asked questions about their family, home, and lifestyle in order to match them with the perfect cat or kitten. We do require an adoption contract/agreement that outlines expectations for both the adopter and our organization.
Adoption Fees are $60 for adults, $100-120 for most kittens, and $150 for specialty breeds.
