Daisy May‘s Story
Hi! My name’s Daisy Mae and I am a 1-year-old, 27-pound Labradoodle. I haven’t had the easiest life so far. I was rescued from a puppy mill where the only positive contact I had was with other animals. As a result, I tend to be terrified of humans but 100% fine with my furry foster sisters. I don’t nip or bite, but I do run away and hide from my foster humans. My foster mom and siblings (they are 17 and 19) have learned that I am very treat motivated and I will come up and take them very gently from their hands. They sometimes use this as an excuse to grab me and pick me up. I play hard to get for a brief moment, but then I snuggle up next to them and enjoy all the love, pets and snuggles. I eventually fall sleep cuddled up to them until they have to get up. I have also just realized that I can jump up on the couch all by myself and will let you sit next to me and pet me. Foster mom says it’s baby steps, but she’s very proud of me.
I absolutely love to play with my foster sisters. We chase each other around the backyard, wrestle, play tug of war and keep away with the toys. They really help my confidence, so I need to go to a home with at least one other young playful dog. When my foster mom gets home after being gone for a little bit, I sometimes get caught up in the excitement of my sisters and forget I’m afraid of humans and come right up to say hi and get some love.
I am potty and crate trained. I am very curious and love to be around my humans, I’m just still not too crazy about letting them get close, but I’m getting better every day. I do tend to hide out in my crate when I’m feeling scared. My foster mom put a blanket over it so it’s nice and cozy and I can go in and out as I please. At night I prefer to snuggle with my foster sisters next to mom’s bed. I would do best in a house where one of my parents worked from home and I had energetic furry siblings. I probably shouldn’t be around small children because I’m terrified of loud noises and fast movements. I will require a lot of love and patience, but my foster mom says I’m worth it.
