Daisy is a tricolour female, born on 14th April 2019. She is looking for a new home with a confident, dog experienced family, and ideally another dog in her home as a friend. Daisy is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
Daisy has come to Beagle Welfare after her owner was unable to manage her anxious behaviour. Because of this, we’re recommending that her new home is one where all members of the family have experience with dogs. Daisy’s owner was nipped once by Daisy, in an act of possessiveness over a valued item, so a home with young children would not be a good match for her. In an ideal world, Daisy would have a companion dog to share her home with, as a confident canine role model would really help Daisy to overcome her worries.
Daisy is walked on a harness, as she can pull on the lead during walks. She has not been let off lead on walks. Although she loves the dogs she is familiar with, Daisy can be a bit unpredictable with any unknown dogs which she meets while out for a walk. She appears to be upset by larger breed dogs, but is generally fine with medium to small dogs. She isn’t a big fan of car travel, but will travel in the car.
At home, Daisy is house trained and crate trained, and has been home alone for a few hours in her crate. She can be destructive of soft items like soft toys, rugs and cardboard, so would need a beagle proof environment. She has never tried to escape from her secure garden. Daisy is protective of high value food like chicken or ham, and can be possessive of higher value items, although she has learned to trade stolen items for a treat.
Daisy has never lived with a cat, so her new home must be cat free. Due to the reasons explained earlier, we would prefer that Daisy’s new home is one without young children, and that any older or visiting children can be fully on board with helping to manage Daisy’s anxieties. It is absolutely essential that all her family – whether they’re humans or canines – are confident leaders who can help Daisy with her worries. She is not a fan of loud or unexpected noises like fireworks, so a calm environment would be good for her mental health. Daisy would love to have a large garden to run about in, and enjoys her long daily walks. She really likes spend her quiet time chewing on antlers, or having a cuddle on the sofa with her people at the end of the day.
