Our Featured Pet


Daisy is a Cane Corso mix that needs a breed experienced home. She is about 2 years old, and is a very quick learner. She is suspicious of new people and appreciates slow introductions. Daisy needs a leader that will show her in a positive way, that new people can be trusted. She would not do well in a home with lots of visitors because of her uncertainty around strangers. Once Daisy gets to know you, she is a complete love bug. She has lots of energy to hike, or play ball, but is also content to relax in her kennel after exercise time. Please view her profile for more information about Daisy.
