Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Maltese / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 14 lbs
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 7/24/2013
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Daisy was surrendered to a shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from the shelter.
Special Needs: Daisy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Daisy arrived in rescue a medical mess. She was coughing constantly, had advanced dental disease, and had a hernia that needed repair. On 08/24/2021 Daisy had a dental with 22 extractions. On 09/22/2021 she had an inguinal hernia repaired. Daisy has a cataract in one eye. She is on Pimobendan 2.5mg twice/day and Lasix 12.5 mg twice/day. Using 1800petmeds, this works out to about $3 per day for pimobenden and about .50 cents per day for Lasix. Monthly cost averaging 30 days in a month is $105. Daisy will require ongoing medical treatment and is considered an anesthesia risk.
What kind of home would be best for me: Daisy is a quiet retiree that we expect is much older than the 8 years her owners stated she was. She has a myriad of health challenges, including being vision impaired and having a collapsing trachea. She coughs a lot and takes several medicines twice a day. Daisy is looking for a lap to call her own. She would love to be the princess for retirees who want to spoil a girl in her retirement.
What is my personality like: Daisy was surrendered by her owners to a NC shelter. She was quickly diagnosed with a collapsing trachea and placed for rescue only. Carolina Poodle Rescue scooped her up from the shelter.
Daisy is a sweet older gal, she would love a home with lots of dog bed to snooze in. She enjoys sunbathing on a nice doggie cot, and she loves to cuddle up in a lap. Plain and simply Daisy wants to sleep a LOT! She is past her young days and is in retirement mode! Daisy is a easy gentle soul, she gets along with all living creatures big or small!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Daisy's owners stated she was 8 years old when she was surrendered to the shelter. We celebrate her birthday as 07/24/2013. Daisy's physical body ages more like a 12-13 year old dog.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
