Facts about Delightful Daisy

  • Breed: Collie
  • Color: White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
San Antonio, Texas – Daisy is such a good girl. She is a purebred Red Collie with a heart of pure gold. And speaking of gold, she is a “Golden Oldie” at 14 years of age. Daisy is very healthy, although she does have a slight limp as a result of an ACL ligament tear she sustained earlier in her life.

This sweet dog is so very smart, devoted and well behaved. She loves people of all ages and sizes, and gets along very well with other pets. She is spayed, up to date on shots and very obedient and well trained.

Daisy’s owner is dearly hoping to find her the very best home in which to live out the rest of her days. Having remarried recently, she and her new husband differ greatly on their idea of how dogs should live and be treated. He has insisted that Daisy live as an outdoor dog with his German Shepherd, and the owner feels very strongly that this is not a good situation for Daisy at all.

She is dearly hoping to find some kind hearted dog lovers who have room in their home and hearts to provide a safe, happy, quiet and loving home for Daisy. She deserves it!

Daisy is so loving. She adds immeasurable joy to life, and helps you appreciate the wonder of every day. Despite her age, she still loves to go for a walk, and is also content to snuggle up with her favorite human.

Please offer this sweet senior the home she needs and deserves today!

Daisy is a lovable, “lap” dog. She loves being petted, brushed, and having any type of attention. She simply wants to please!! She was initially brought into my home when I had 3 other dogs and 5 cats and she played well with all of them (she prefers cats!) She is not the best walking on a lease…she like to pull me, but she eventually slows down. She understands basic commands such as sit, stay. I can put her food dish on the floor and she will not start eating until I tell her it is ok. She was totally house broken, but may need to be retrained since she has been outside for over a year.

I rescued Daisy from an animal shelter in 2008 and she was ~ 6 years old. Daisy was an inside dog for 6 years, I recently remarried and my husband prefers no dogs inside. We have made her an outside dog (along with his german shepherd) and I am having a hard time with this. I prefer her to have the opportunity to be back inside where she can receive the love and attention she needs. I cannot provide this in the setting she is in now.

About Austin Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
