About Daisy

Hi there, I'm Daisy! I'm sugar and spice and all things nice, and I'm ready and waiting to find a fab forever home to join! I was a transfer from Regina, where I was having no luck finding a home. I guess they didn't appreciate my sweetness and enthusiasm! I am a lover of all people, and have a full-body tail wag like you've never seen before! I may not be "lap dog sized" but that sure won't stop me! I am a strong breed, but I have been working hard on my leash manners! I still have a tendency to pull when I get excited (which is most of the time!) but once I get over the initial enthusiasm of being out for a walk, I become more polite.

I'm looking for a home that is patient, and familiar with the common traits of my breed, as well as able to set boundaries that will help me to thrive. I have been known to guard high-value items, and I haven't quite gotten the hang of keeping my paws on the floor when meeting people, so I will be best suited to an adult-only home or with dog-savvy kids 12 years+ that will respect my space when I am eating or chewing on a bone, and be comfortable with large, high-energy dogs. I am very food motivated and eager to please, so I pick up training wicked fast and would love to keep learning new things. I am working on placement training to help with my impulse control and jumping, and to help teach me to relax. When I first arrived at the shelter, I was selective with my canine pals, but I've been working hard with the dog team on making friends with other dogs, and can proudly say I have learned some great dog skills. I still need proper introductions, but I've been making lots of dog friends at the shelter, so a home with another dog is a definite possibility - as long as they want to play wrestle! At this time, dog parks won't be for me at this time, and small dogs and cats will be a no-go.

I don't do anything halfway, including loving people, and so for someone that is looking for a loyal and energetic new best friend to cuddle up with, I will make them very happy!

Dog-friendly: Leash reactive, good with proper introductions
Cat-friendly: No
Kid-friendly: Yes, dog-savvy aged 12+
