MEET DAISY 🐢
Last month we welcomed in 6 year old Daisy (DOB 2/16/2016) after her family made the difficult decision to surrender her and entrust us with her care and placement after major family changes made it difficult for Daisy to continue to get the time, attention, and care she needed and deserved. Daisy has thrived in our care where she is being showered with love and is now looking for her perfect match furever family who is able to continue pampering this little princess!
MEDICAL 🩺
Daisy is a healthy girl! She came to us already up to date on vaccinations and spayed but was in need of a dental which she received in our care and lost 13 bad teeth that she doesn't miss a bit. All of her labwork including her fecal test, heartworm and tick borne illness test, urinalysis, and bloodwork were all normal and negative. Her heart is clear and she has just a mildly unstable knee (grade 1 luxating patella) which doesn’t give her any trouble at all. Her tear production is on the low end and so we are using an over the counter lubricating eye gel a few times a day to supplement her tear production and ensure her eyes stay well lubricated and comfortable. Otherwise she is not on any medications and does not require any additional vetting, outside of regular wellness checks at this time. Daisy is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, had a recent dental, is microchipped, and on monthly preventatives.
FOOD & POTTY HABITS πŸ₯˜
Beautiful Daisy is typical in size and currently at her ideal weight of 18 pounds. She is a good eater and enjoying her twice a day meals and treats throughout the day. She is quite protective over her food and bowl and so she is being fed separately, away from the other dogs, in her foster home and would recommend that the same is done in her forever home to ensure everyone's safety. This also means that food bowls should not be left on the ground and that she is separated, or otherwise very closely monitored, with any chews or longer lasting treats. To ensure she remains at her ideal weight, best health, and best self, her family must remain committed to continuing her strictly portioned meals, healthy treats, and daily activity.
Daisy has been the perfect lady in the potty department having had no accidents in her foster home. That said, she is taken out regularly and frequently to ensure success - first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and every few hours in between including immediately after meals. She is motivated by both a yummy treat and sweet love and praise which we would encourage her new family to do to continue to positively reinforce expectations. Please know that even though she is reliable in her foster home, accidents are always to be expected especially initially while she transitions to a new environment and routine.
PERSONALITY πŸ’œ
Daisy's foster family describe her as a well behaved and confident young lady who is now showing off more of her curious, active, and fun-loving side as she continues to become more and more comfortable in her foster home. She is really coming to life when out in the fenced backyard where she is enjoying her outdoor freedom and fun, running free and patrolling the yard for critters and creatures! When not on the hunt, she is content to curl up on your lap or on the couch for some beauty sleep. Her foster mom says, "Daisy is truly a treasure. She is very mild mannered and such a sweet cuddler who loves to be rubbed from head to paw. She loves so many things - in fact, we haven't found much of anything she doesn't love."
ROUTINE ⏰
This little princess is typically the last one out of bed in the morning and starts her day with a quick potty outside in the yard before enjoying her breakfast. The rest of her day is spent sticking close by her humans around the house with frequent trips to the yard for pottying and patrolling, and of course plenty of cav-naps in between. She prefers to nap cuddled up with you but a perched spot on the back of the sofa is her next choice. After dinner she enjoys a nice leisurely stroll through the neighborhood and then couch and TV time with her people before retiring to bed. Daisy spends much of the day home with her foster family but during short periods of time when there are no humans home, she stays on the main floor of the home with her Cavalier foster siblings where she has plenty of space, comforts, and companionship and where she does well. She has not been crated or otherwise strictly confined or restricted while in our care and it's not needed or recommended for her. Daisy is happiest being with her people though and so we are seeking a home where someone can be with her much of the day and where she wouldn't be left alone for long periods of time regularly. At night, she sleeps in the big bed with her humans and cavalier foster siblings and we are seeking a family who will continue to invite her up.
SOCIALIZATION πŸ’•
Daisy has greeted and interacted with guests and strangers appropriately, looking for her share of the attention and seeking gentle pets and love. She is a mild, gentle girl and doesn't appreciate too much noise and too much activity so would be happiest and thrive best in a more quiet, calm household. We feel she would do well in an adult only home or a home with older, gentle children who know how to engage with her gently.
Daisy lived with another Cavalier in her former home and shares her foster home with 2 other Cavalier friends who she gets along with very well. Because she has always been used to having canine companionship, we are seeking a home for her with another Cavalier or other dog of similar temperament. Her ideal match would be an active companion who also shares her love of the outdoors and backyard adventures. She hasn't been exposed to cats in our care so we are unsure how she would respond to having a feline furiend in the home.
Daisy enjoys getting out of the home for both car rides and leashed walks. She is a great car rider, riding safely and comfortably in her boosted car seat where she loves to look out the window. She is also excellent on leash but appreciates and enjoys walks for the sake of adventure and exploration instead of structured sidewalk walks. Knowing that, her foster family opts to take her on the nature path instead where there is always plenty of exciting smells, sounds, and sights for her to enjoy! She makes the cutest piggy snort sound when she has her nose to the ground exploring!
IDEAL FAMILY & HOME 🏑
Most importantly, Daisy needs a family who has the time and ability to shower her with lots of time, love, and attention. Cuddle time is her "quality time" and is very important to her. She will be happiest and thrive best in a home where someone can be with her much of the day and where she will have plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventures enjoyed with another mild canine companion and plenty of quality time spent with her people. Additionally, a safe and secured fenced yard is a must for this outdoorsy girl who loves to spend a lot of time in the yard running free, sunbathing, and patrolling critters and creatures - this is where she really comes to life!
