Meet Daisy8 (Bonded with Rufus4)

Daisy is a 14-year-old, quiet little girl with soulful eyes, who is bonded with Rufus. Both pups are cautious and slow to trust, but once they know you they are sweet and loving. Daisy is the more laidback of the two but can be led astray by her brother from time to time! They are on the search for a quiet home with experienced owners, and no young children.

Environment

Both are crate trained and house trained too. On walks there is too much stimulation for Daisy or Rufus, where they react anxiously to other dogs and people. As a result, they will need a fenced yard to get their exercise. They don't necessarily need someone who works from home since they are fine in their crates, but they wouldn't be suitable for doggy daycare or similar.

Pets & People

Daisy is slow to trust and while she's not as reactive as Rufus, she needs to work on getting along with other dogs. Any introductions to new dogs should be very slow and approached with love and patience. Separation should continue at mealtimes as she isn't shy about taking other dogs' food. With new people it's a similar story-she needs time and patience. Once she accepts you, she just wants to be petted and loved.

Health

Daisy is deaf and has a heart murmur for which she is receiving palliative care. Rufus is important to her as her bonded partner and as her "emotional support animal". The cardiologist recommended a diet free of legumes (currently eats Royal Canin Mature Adult). Luckily, she takes her medicine very easily, but should be sedated for vet care or stressful situations.

Location

Daisy and Rufus are available for adoption from Wheaton, MD. They are a little whiny in the car but will quiet down eventually.

Please email doxelovr@gmail.com with any questions or complete an adoption application at the link above. The adoption fee for Daisy has been waived due to her health and comfort care requirements.
