Daisy came to SNAFU after being purchased at a commercial breeder auction.
Daisy is an absolute sweetheart and has become quite the Queen Puggie of her foster home. Everyone who meets her loves her, she has such a great personality and happiness about her. She has a very outgoing and silly personality and gives her foster family lots of laughs and smiles. She is for the most part pretty laid back (with short bursts of hilarious energy). She likes to spend the majority of her time on the back of the couch in what we call “her nest.” (It’s possible your couch will never be the same.) She gets along well with her foster brothers (Lab, Frenchie and two cats). She does get a little possessive over bones, hooves and toys from time to time so she must be supervised when playing. She also loves to sleep in her foster human’s bed! She will find a spot and literally will not move an inch until morning when you make her go out for potty time. This girl is not a morning dog! She has not spent much time with children but has been around teenagers. She have been very sweet and care-free with the few small children that have visited the home. She should always supervised when she is around small children to ensure they are gentle, and to ensure everyone is kept safe. Daisy walks pretty well on a leash but could still use some polishing in that area.
Daisy has been doing wonderful with potty training. She currently has a doggy door and she is very good at using it when she needs to go. She is pretty independent when it comes to that. If you do not have a doggy door, you will have to ensure she has a regular routine in place and perhaps work with her on giving you a signal. It is recommended that she is kept on a regular, consistent schedule and be put into her kennel when unsupervised to avoid accidents. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her. She does well with her crate and is placed in her crate when her foster family is not home. For her safety, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home and/or she is left unsupervised, so she is safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Medically, Daisy is in great health. She was diagnosed with heartworms when she came into SNAFU Rescue but has recently completed her heartworm treatment and her foster family reports that you would never be able tell that she was ever sick, if you didn't know her history! She has been spayed, had a dental, is microchipped, has been updated on vaccinations/dewormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Daisy would do well in almost any type of home. A house with a fenced yard will be preferred for her but is not a requirement for adoption as she would make a good apartment dog as well. Daisy would prefer a family that loves to spend time at home and will shower her with attention but she is also fine being home alone so long as it’s not an extended period of time (more than 6-8hrs). Daisy loves meeting new people and would be excited to go to work with her family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! If not, no problem at all - she will be happy to sleep away the day in her kennel with a blanket and a good chew toy to keep her busy as long as her people can arrange for a mid-day potty break for her!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Daisy, please fill out an adoption application for her today!
Applications Under Review - We are no longer accepting applications for Daisy. Please check out our other dogs looking for forever homes!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
