After 8 years in our rescue, waiting and hoping for an adopter to take her into their home and give her a "Happy Tails" story, we've changed Daisy's status from "Available for Adoption" to Sanctuary dog. We had always hoped the right person would come along, but that hasn't happened. So Daisy will continue to live in our home for the rest of her days. She seems perfectly content here, but it still makes us sad that we didn't find the right adopter for her.



Hello Gorgeous!

Daisy's DNA results are in, and she is such a unique mix! 

  • 25% Great Pyrenees
  • 12.5% Australian Shepherd
  • 12.5% Boxer
  • 50% MIX from groups that include Anatolian Shepherd, Central Asian Shepherd, Caucasian Shepherd, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Golden Retriever, Boerbel, and many others

Daisy has many of the characteristics of some of the breeds listed in the "MIX" section, including being independent and having a dominant personality. Although she looks a lot like a Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix, she doesn't really have the temperament of either breed.

Daisy has very good manners in the house, but prefers a quiet home without too many visitors. She enjoys daily walks and generally does OK meeting most dogs on her walks.  Daisy is not always happy about meeting new people -- she isn't aggressive, but she doesn't trust easily. She has a scary bark and uses it to keep people from encroaching on her personal space.  She tends to accept people more easily if they have a dog, and the second time she sees them, she may basically ignore them. People who love dogs and think that most dogs love them back are often surprised that Daisy won't let them pet her.  She is definitely a one-family dog, and we think she would be happiest with a single owner or a couple, and no children.

Daisy currently lives in a foster home with several dogs, some her own size and some much smaller. She gets along with all of them, though will often find a quiet spot away from the others to take her nap. She previously lived in a foster home with a small dog and a senior cat, and everyone got along just fine.

If you live a nice quiet life and would give to Daisy the same love and devotion she will give to you, Daisy just may be the dog for you!
