Daisy #3 (#160289)
Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats, and approved for ages 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds but should gain a few. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company.
Update from Daisy's foster family - Jun 12, 2016:
Daisy is a very sweet, affectionate, peppy little girl who is just dying to be made over and loved on. Although she's had a rough life over the past several years, she has risen above it all...her tail never stops wagging, and she actually seems to be smiling all the time too! She has gained the weight she needed, and her new coat is coming back in nicely- as her skin heals from the mess it's been in for so long. She is REALLY feeling SO much better now! Daisy has incredible spring in her step, and is amazingly agile and energetic for her age....I liken her to the energizer bunny! She gets along very well with our resident lab, and seems to prefer a 4-legged friend who does not pay her much attention....she is not interested in romping and playing with other dogs...she just seems to enjoy a friend to hang out with.
She would probably be OK as an only dog as well. She does not like to be crated, and definitely does not need to be. We have left her home with the resident dog for several hours in the house, and she has never disturbed anything or picked up anything that wasn't a dog toy. However, she would prefer to be in a home where her owners are home more than not. She LOVES to go for walks and does OK on a leash, but is best with an easy walk harness - she will sometimes follow her nose when a good whiff of something comes along, and in those instances she will pull. Daisy rides very well in the car, and she is completely house trained. This sweet girl will make a wonderful, loving companion for anyone.
