We went down to Florida to find the spunkiest retiree we could, so meet DAISY! Don’t let her age fool you, she is essentially a pup. She loves going for walks, gets super excited about things and loves being outside. She really feeds off people’s energy so if someone is getting super pumped about something DAISY gets equally excited and starts jumping up. This behavior should be discouraged but she’s otherwise a really well mannered dog. She absolutely loves people – including her most trusted humans and all of your friends. She’s a great hostess and makes sure she greets everyone who comes into her come before passing out at your feet. She has no concept of stranger danger and wants to say hi to all the people on the street, often staring at them adoringly until they pay attention to her. She loves her humans so much that she can be a little protective of them if other dogs are in the home. She doesn’t really growl so much as she just inserts herself between you and the other dog to steal all the attention. DAISY is an early riser because she’s eager to get the day started. She will bark at noises in the early morning or just right at you to try to encourage you to get up and take her for a walk. She’s medium energy bordering on the higher side and is used to approximately 2 hours of exercise per day. This is enough for her to be able to chill while you’re at work – but in her ideal world you wouldn’t have a job except loving her all day long. We’re trying to teach her about realistic expectations… She doesn’t love when you leave but doesn’t really react negatively and we’re pretty sure she just spoons her stuffed animal all day long. DAISY doesn’t like to be crated but it’s not necessary as she’s been very well behaved in the home so far. She’s housetrained and is working on some basic commands. She is dog social and again kind of feeds off their energy – getting excited if they’re excited, barking if they bark. She would do best with a dog with a similar energy level to her. She hasn’t been tested with cats and although she’s not officially kid tested she’s such a sweet girl that we think she would be a great family dog. If you’d like to meet her fill out an application to adopt now!
