Adopt me: 300 days in shelter and counting

Dec 19 2017, 8:35 pm

Daisy has not had an easy go in life.

Brought into the Burnaby SPCA as a result of cruelty investigation in May last year, she’s now close to reaching a sad milestone after spending almost a whole year in the shelter.

She’s healthy, energetic and playful, and it’s hard to believe this pit bull terrier is 10-years-old. She is not a typical senior and has a lot of love left to give.

Daisy loves running around the dog park, chasing a ball and isn’t super dog reactive.

She’s been fostered in a Vancouver apartment for the past six months, but her fosters feel she’d do well in a home where there’s a yard.

d12“Daisy has adapted to loft living in a dog-friendly building where barking is not an issue, and only gets vocal when there’s a knock on the door or she senses folks are having a good time at the elevator nearby without her,” the shelter reports.

An ideal home for Daisy would be one where she is the only pet. Like many dogs, she has a bit of a prey drive, so it’s best if she’s not living in a home with small pets like cats, rabbits or mice.

“Daisy has shown she has a soft spot for puppies, seems interested in meeting some dogs and can walk politely on leash with others,” shelter staff report.

Because she came in as an abandoned pet, Daisy has struggled with separation anxiety, but has made great strides in her training. She can now be left on her own for five or six hours at a time, but will greet you like a “long lost friend” when you get home.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could help Daisy get a forever home?
