Daisy Mae came into Critteraid via Animal Care and Control. Daisy was found running loose and went unclaimed and is now looking for her new forever home. We believe Daisy Mae was used as a breeding dog and was not given much interaction, affection or attention in her previous life. Daisy Mae is looking for an active home that will give her the time she needs to warm up to people. She is going to need time, most likely a month or more to settle in. Daisy is currently living in foster care with several dogs, both her size and much bigger than her and enjoys having canine company. This is a very sweet girl that just needs some TLC and understanding that she will come around and be a great companion for someone out there.
Breed: Chihuahua / Corgi cross
Age: Approx 6 years old
Please see below as to Daisy Mae's needs for her new forever home.
Dogs: Yes. We believe she would do best with another dog as a companion.
Cats: No. Daisy Mae has a high prey drive and we do not believe cats would be best in her new home.
Small Pets: No. Daisy Mae has a high prey drive and we do not believe other small pets would be best in her new home.
Children under 10 years old: No. Daisy Mae is a duck-and-dive dog, she is not comfortable being pet, picked up or cuddled at this time with people she does not know. She needs a quiet, calm place to settle in before she feels safe enough for affection.
Children over 10 years old: Possible. This all depends on the age and maturity of the child or children in the home. Daisy Mae needs her boundaries respected. She likes to be around people and will happily follow you around the house. But she does not want to be petted, picked up or cuddled unless she instigates it.
Fenced Yard: Yes. This is a must for Daisy Mae as she is a runner. Fencing must be secure as she is small and can get through tight spaces if frightened and determined.
Activity Level: 5/10 (Daisy Mae loves walks and has even shown a high interest in swimming, or at least splashing in the waves if it was just a little warmer. We believe 1 hour of leashed exercise a day is a must for her.
