Daisy is an affectionate girl who needs a very experienced owner. She was apparently purchased by a family from a drug dealer home at 9 weeks of age where she was chained and starved. There were constant strangers coming and going so loud noises and sudden movement scare her. Her litter mates were sold at 4 weeks of age and she was the runt. She was fed on dry Weetbix and did not know how to eat properly.
Daisy does not like anything around her neck including a collar. She also has a sensitive rear end from apparently being kicked in the rear and in the head. Daisy used to resource guard her bed, but this is becoming a thing of the past.
Daisy has undergone some positive training with previous owners using touch treat methods and also with a clicker. She is very obedient to commands and quick to learn a new routine. She eats normally now and no longer resource guards food. She is a bit on the tubby side but being a sedentary girl losing weight has been a bit challenging. She has also had surgery for strictures in her osophagus so she can only eat soft foods. She has also had 2 knee replacements at 2 years of age!
Daisy is in good health now but appears to have Diabetes Insipidus which is managed with tablets. This stops the constant drinking and urination.
Daisy is looking for a very experienced owner living in a quiet calm environment who has had a difficult dog before. She is extremely affectionate, particularly in the mornings where she nuzzles you for attention, belly rubs and cuddles. She is a very gentle, slow-moving dog and very social with smaller dogs and even rabbits. She has a medium coat and weighs 20.5kg.
