Meet Daisy! Daisy is a charming 16-month-old female yellow Labrador Retriever mix with a beautiful silky golden coat. Daisy was surrendered to WCLRR when her family found that they couldn’t give Daisy the time and attention she deserved.
Daisy loves being with people and other dogs. She happily runs over to everyone she sees to say hello, sometimes jumping up to ensure they know she’s there! She loves to get belly rubs and enjoys a good snuggle session in front of the television.
Daisy is a medium-to-high energy dog. She loves to chew toys, but she doesn’t have much interest in chasing a ball. She is living with a 2-year-old male black lab, and they get along well. They enjoy wrestling and playing “keep away” with the toys. Daisy doesn’t show any signs of resource guarding or dominant behavior and will often lay down on her belly or roll on her back while playing with the other dog. Daisy has also been around small dogs and is OK with them.
Daisy knows to sit and shake but could use some training in learning not to jump on people. She also would benefit from leash training. She enjoys walks, and when walking in a quiet neighborhood, she occasionally pulls. She can pull quite a bit in a park with many other distractions. When she first arrived at her foster home, she barked a bit when she heard noises she wasn’t familiar with, but she has since gotten used to them and rarely barks.
Daisy is housetrained and hasn’t had any accidents in her foster home. However, her new family should still take her outside frequently until she gets used to her new environment.
Daisy has not lived with cats or other small animals. When she sees lizards on a walk, she will try to chase them. Daisy would do best in a home without small creatures or one where they live in a separate area where she can’t get to them.
Daisy sleeps in a crate in a separate room. She goes into her crate easily and sleeps through the night, waiting for her foster mom to get up in the morning. Daisy is very excited to start her day and is usually bouncy first thing in the morning. She goes outside to potty and then comes in for her breakfast. Her foster family has left her in a large room with her crate and some chew toys when they’ve had to go out for a few hours. Daisy just made herself comfortable on a sofa and waited for them to return.
Daisy’s ideal home would be one with a secure yard where she can safely run and play and people around most of the time to give her attention. She would do well with an active individual or couple or a family with older children that will play with her and give her lots of attention! However, she does tend to jump on people and pull on the leash, so her new family should be prepared to work on training to eliminate this behavior. She would love to have other dogs to play with and use up some of that puppy energy but would be fine as an only dog with socialization at parks or doggy daycare.
Daisy is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
