~~Hi, I’m Daisy. I’m a very sweet and reserved 2 year old girl that was given to a rural shelter by my family
who said they couldn’t afford me anymore. The shelter said that I came from a home with children, but I was mainly outside. I’ve had multiple litters of puppies, but my old family was nice enough to have me spayed before I went to the shelter. My Foster Mom saw my picture and knew I needed to be rescued and shown some TLC. She picked me up 2 nights ago and I’m feeling much more comfortable now that all those pesky fleas and ticks are gone and I smell like a beauty queen. My mom was so surprised when I asked her to go potty outside; I do not like to do my business in the house Mom! I love a good walk, but I can’t go too far because the vet told us last night that I have those pesky heart-worms, but I’m not showing any symptoms. I started my first treatment last night and I love the hot dogs that mom uses to hide my pills. I also love this new grain free diet, especially the salmon wet food to help my coat. Despite my white coat and blue eyes, I don’t seem to have any hearing or vision issues.
I share my space with my tiny little fur sister who is only 5lbs! I’m teaching her a thing or two about pottying outside since she’s still a pup. I love to play with her, but I know that I have to be careful when we box because she’s so much smaller than I am. I also have a fur-less brother who is 12 months old that I love to sniff. I didn’t get to meet him right away so my mom could make sure I felt comfortable, but now I get to sniff him in mom’s lap. We’ve also sat on the floor together, but mom is there to supervise.
Now that I’ve gotten more comfortable being in the house I can relax and lie down rather than stand up and pant. I also really like my foster dad. When he comes home from work I show him my boxer wiggle and wag my tail. Mom and Dad said that they’ve never had a boxer with a tail, but love the sound of it wagging in the kennel when they come to let me out. I’m a little skeptical of going in my kennel, but I think it will get used to it when I realize that they are always going to come back and let me out of it. I sleep in the kennel next to my mom’s side of the bed and I don’t make any noise during the night and I don’t bark in it during the day while they are at work.
More to come!
