Hi, my name is Daisy – I’m a little 30 pound, 5 year- old Border Collie mix who will dance for joy if you'll just take me home with you and give me a real "forever home"! I thought I had found my family when someone abandoned me in front of a lady's home and I lived there happily for 2 years. But the lady had to move and I ended up at the local shelter. Luckily a rescue was called in and now I am at Eleventh Hour Rescue. I am presently in the care of a loving and caring foster mom where I am patiently waiting to find my forever home.
I have learned a lot of things being at my foster mom’s house, like sitting and waiting for my leash to be put on and then waiting for her to open the door and give me the cue I can go out. I also sit and wait when we are going back in so that she can get in ahead of me and I don’t accidently knock into her causing her to lose her footing and fall. I will gently put my paws up on you when I meet you and try to gently get closer to your face so that I can smother you with kisses. I also may start out by giving you my one white paw to get your initial attention.
I have quite a bit of energy and enjoy actively running around but I also am quite happy just to cuddle up with you to watch a little TV (don’t be surprised if I try to squeeze in between you and your mate). All I want to do is be with "my" people or person no matter where they happen to be. Basically, what I am looking for is someone who would love to have a super affectionate jogging/cuddling companion.
I also have just started to learn to catch treats that are thrown in the air to me (I catch them from underneath as they start on their way down). I walk well on a leash and am crate trained (My foster mom calls it my “house” and uses that term when it is time to go to bed. She doesn’t realize that I know it is a crate but I want to make her happy so I oblige her). If I need to go to the bathroom I will sit by the door as my way of telling you I need to go out. I do like to sleep in my crate (house) all night but in a thunderstorm or with fireworks going off which really scare me (and my foster mom says they scare her, too, so I don’t feel so bad), I am more comfortable sleeping on or next to your bed for comfort. I like toys and playing fetch even though sometimes I think it is more fun for me having you try to get the toy back from me as I do my zoomies around the room. If you're going for a ride in the car, I would love to go along and be your co-pilot as I think I am really great at it!
In the presence of other dogs, I am nervous so I would do best in a house where I am the only dog. Having the Border Collie instincts in me it would not be a good idea for me to live with any cats as I may go after to try to herd them which is something I am sure they will not like. Also, I will only be comfortable in a home with older, respectful children (ages 10 & up) and Eleventh Hour agrees with me as I have heard my foster mom speaking to them on this topic.
I absolutely love people & want to be with you to show you how much I love you. I would just love to find a lap to snuggle in. I am a very gentle soul who just wants to be loved. So if you are looking for a great little dog, then I am the dog for you. Please give me a chance to show you what a great pup I am!
