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 in our care for 8 weeks. She arrived in a very poor condition and extremely underweight. She has settled in with her amazing foster carers and has blossomed under their care.
Daisy just luvs her hoomans and will follow you around constantly, she will be your loving “shadow”! She enjoys attention and thoroughly luvs a cuddle. She enjoys being brushed, but as her body is sensitive, it’s a soft gentle process.
Miss Daisy is easily handled by our Vet and her carers. We have had no problems trimming the fur on her feet, or her nails. She tolerates a bath and luvs being towel dried. She takes her medication well (ear/eye drops). She is well behaved in her home and is not destructive. She can currently use a doggie door.
Miss Daisy does struggle to get a “grip” on tiles, to lie down and 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 and out of the car, she travels well. We do not use a ramp as Daisy would struggle to get up the slight incline. 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 and tends to toilet immediately after eating.
Daisy doesn’t have an interest in toys or balls, except her treat ball. We have found no evidence of storm phobia at this point. Daisy spends most of her time inside, and she sleeps inside at night.
When Daisy first came into care, she was 19kg and in bad shape. During the last 8 weeks, Daisy has had a round of cartrophen injections, and now has one every month to help her joints. Daisy now weighs 23.4kg. Daisy has arthritis and HD, which has been left untreated for many years. Daisy is on 4Cyte, Omega Oils, sardines in springwater, a good quality dry food in the morning, and BARF at night. She loves the food she is receiving now, and her condition/coat certainly show how a great diet can benefit our dogs. Daisy has had ultrasounds and x-rays to determine her arthritic condition and HD. She has also had a full dental scale/clean. Daisy has had surgeries to remove a small tumour from her side, she has also had a skin tag removed from her eye. Her ears were extremely infected and are now clear, however regular maintenance (ear drops etc) will be part of Miss Daisy regime for the rest of her happy life now! Daisy has a little haziness in her eyes, which is normal for older dogs, however at this point there is no sign of cataracts. Her hearing is fairly good.
WHAT DAISY NEEDS
Miss Daisy is extremely attached to her hoomans and needs to be near them all the time, she doesn’t do well with being left alone for long periods.
Daisy will be rehomed to a family that are home all the time, or a great majority of the time, maybe a retired couple. She will be an only dog. It seems Daisy has no socialisation skills with other dogs, and she has not been tested with cats. Daisy will sleep inside and be close to her family. Daisy will only be placed in a single storey home with no stairs.
