The Devine Miss Daisy!

Our gorgeous senior Labrador, Miss Daisy, is searching for a very special family to love her for the rest of her life!  This 10 year old lady has been getting healthier & happier whilst in our care & she is just thriving!  

Daisy just luvs her hoomans & will follow you around, however now that she is settling in, she isn’t as insecure as she originally was.  She still enjoys being with you & thoroughly luvs a cuddle.  She enjoys being brushed, but as her body is sensitive, it’s a soft gentle process.  She has visited the beach on occasion with our other doggies in care and has been very well behaved!

Miss Daisy visits our Vet once a month for a cartrophen injection.  We have had no problems trimming the fur on her feet, or her nails.  She tolerates a bath & luvs being towel dried.   She takes her medication well (ear/eye drops).  Daisy weighs 25kg which is a perfect weight for her size!  She is well behaved in her home & is not destructive.  She can currently use a doggie door.

Miss Daisy does struggle to get a “grip” on tiles, to lie down & get up.  As a result, we have placed good grip mats (yoga mats etc) around the home which has aided Daisy in this movement.  While Daisy does need to be lifted in & out of the car, she travels well.  Daisy has been practising on a ramp & is doing so much better, but will still need a little assistance from a couple of hoomans to guide her!  

Daisy walks well on her own harness, however her walks are only ten minutes at a time, as her energy level can vary day to day.  She does pull a little when she sees another dog or smells something of interest.  She enjoys having a roll in the grass!

Daisy is an enthusiastic eater, but chews her food.  She is fed twice a day, as all our dogs in care are.  She enjoys her treats (lamb jerky, liver treats, chicken tenders, green lipped mussel etc).  Treats do need to be given from the palm of your hand as she can snatch.  She is fed outside & tends to toilet immediately after eating.

 

Daisy doesn’t have an interest in toys or balls, except her treat ball.  She has shown some evidence of mild storm phobia.  If we sit with her on her bed, she seems happier.  Daisy spends most of her time inside, & she sleeps inside at night.

Daisy doesn’t seem to mind being left for a couple of hours now.  She usually lies quietly by the front door waiting for her family to return.

MEDICAL ISSUES


Daisy has had a full dental, scale & clean
She has had procedures to remove a small benign tumour from her side & removal of a skin tag from her eye. Daisy has a cartrophen injection once a month & is on Meloxicam each night 😊

WHAT DAISY NEEDS


Miss Daisy is extremely attached to her hoomans & likes to be near them.  Daisy will be rehomed to a family that are home for a majority of the time, maybe a retired couple.  Daisy will sleep inside & be close to her family.  While Daisy does not respond well to small dogs or cats, she has shown interest in dogs her own size that are placid & chilled, & we will take this into consideration when reviewing applications.  Daisy will only be placed in a single storey home with no stairs.

Miss Daisy has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartwormed & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, & her adoption fee is $350.  Miss Daisy is available for adoption in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas. 

 

Daisy is being fostered in Hervey Bay.  Part of our adoption process is to meet our dogs with your family, after our Committee have approved an application.  Meet and Greets will take place where our dogs are being fostered, if an application is approved as suitable.

Successful families are chosen based on their compatibility with the individual needs & lifestyle requirements of each Golden in our care. We do encourage anyone interested in adopting one of our Goldie’s to please read our Adoption Process which is located on our website under the “Our Adoption Process” tab. This lists our process from start to finish.

Happy Go Lucky Louis

Louis is a 9 ½ year old happy Retriever who lost his back leg 2 years ago after being hit by a car.  He is coping very well as a 3 legged boy and it hasn’t slowed him down at all!  Louis enjoys a 20 minute walk morning and night and does enjoy his time at the beach and on the pier.  He loves meeting other hoomans and certainly doesn’t mind attention!.  Louis does walk well on his harness; however, he is a strong boy and will need to have a fit family!

 

Louis prefers to be inside with his family all the time, he has a foster brother, another Retriever, who he gets on very well with.  Unfortunately, Louis is not good around small dogs, or little animals.  When out walking, Louis can lunge at a small dog if they are barking at him.

 

Louis is a normal eater and luvs his quality kibble and raw food at night.  Louis is on Rose Hip Vital for his joints, fish oil and Omega 3,6,9 for his skin.

 

Louis can use a doggie door and obviously requires help to be lifted in and out of a vehicle.  He loves his toys, but is not interested in chasing a ball.  Louis weighs 29kg which is an excellent weight for his size.  He has just had a dental to remove a broken tooth and has all his other teeth cleaned and scaled!

 

Louis has always been left inside with his foster fur brother when his family has to go out, he is toilet trained and will wander out through the doggie door when he needs to go!  Louis is storm phobic and needs to be around his family and inside during bad weather.  He has not shown a destructive side to us at this time, while there is a storm.

As with most big dogs, Louis will need a home with secure fencing, at least 5 foot high.

 

Louis is washed once a fortnight and really enjoys his bath; he doesn’t mind being towel dried or blow dried.  His family will put a towel down in the doggie bath so Louis has “grip” while he is standing or sitting.  Louis will let you brush him all day long!

 

MEDICAL INFORMATION:

Louis has had a full dental, scale and clean, and had a broken tooth removed.

Louis has had full bloodwork taken and he is great!

 

WHAT LOUIS NEEDS: 

We will be looking favourably for a family that will walk Louis each day and involve him in all aspects of family life.  Louis will spend most of his time inside with his family.  Our adopted family will have no problem with Louis sleeping inside and following them around for cuddles!

 

As Louis is storm phobic, we are searching for a family that will be home a lot and allow Louis to come and go inside the home as he needs.  A doggie door would be a huge advantage for Louis!  Louis will need another doggie companion of the same size as a brother or sister.  Louis does not get on with little dogs or small animals, therefore he will not be rehomed where there are small dogs, or cats.  A single storey dwelling would suit Louis.

 

Louis has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartwormed & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, & his adoption fee is $500.  Louis is available for adoption in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas. 

 

Louis is being fostered in Hervey Bay.  Part of our adoption process is to meet our dogs with your family, after our Committee have approved an application.  Meet and Greets will take place where our dogs are being fostered, if an application is approved as suitable.
