About Daisey

Adoption Fee: $100
Basenji / Chihuahua
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Rescued after living 30 months on a chain. She was a bottle raised puppy that became an outcast. This is the third dog we have rescued from this same chain. Daisey is such a sweet girl. She is so happy to finally be free of the chain. We have had her almost 8 weeks, now. She has come so far in such a short time. It brought me to tears when i saw her running free for the first time in a big backyard... she is pure joy and ran and played until she made herself sick. She is doing very well with our dog, Sammy. And she has done pretty good with her meet and greets and trips to the park. She has been spayed and is up to date on er shots. She will need someone that understands the psyche behind a dog that was recently rescued from a chain. There is initial distrust and fear. She was abused by her previous owners. Because of this, she is initially distrusting of new people and situations. No worries. What we hope to do is find her the right people... and slowly introduce you to her... and her to you. She does well with this and she WANTS to trust... she just needs you to earn it a little. She is not recommended for children.. we are not saying this is an impossibility... but in general, there are better kid-friendly dogs that would be much better suited to your children. Daisey is very playful and active. If you have another dog and it is pretty submissive... she should do fine with it, after proper introduction. She weighs about 25 lbs a,d is like a low rider basenji. We are not sure of her mix... several people have said they believe she is basenji mix. Several people have said they do not think she is basenji. Most recently, a couple that owns basenjis was helping us with socialization and they believe she has MAY basenji attributes.
