Daisy’s plight has been shared with over 24,000 readers on Facebook, yet no one has come forward to offer this gentle dog a home. On June 12, the nine-and-a-half-year-old English Mastiff was surrendered to the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter to be euthanized.
Fortunately compassionate shelter staff intervened.
“Daisy is having trouble walking, so we administered pain medication. We DO NOT want to euthanize this girl, but she can not ‘live’ here!! We are asking our fans, to PLEASE help us find Daisy a home where she can enjoy the rest of her life. Daisy is a big girl, she is very tall and weighs 160 POUNDS. ”
According to the shelter, Daisy is social with people, although she is nervous, but who can blame her? In her previous home, she lived with a cocker spaniel. When tested for dog friendliness, she was social and interested in the other dog but didn’t show any motivation to play.
Daisy lived outside during the day and was brought in at night. According to her owners, she didn’t like anyone coming near her food or her “chewies,” however there have been no signs of any aggression from this senior while at the shelter. She is house trained, and just wants to belong to a family again; no big demands – just a kind hand, a loving heart and a safe and friendly place to call home.
