Daisy #3 (#160289)  

Update: July 12, 2017

Today we had to say goodbye to Daisy. She came to Lab Rescue 14 months ago after her family lost their home and couldn't take care of her anymore. She received much needed medical care. She spent several months in a foster home recovering and gaining weight. She had so much fun with her foster canine brother and loving foster parents. Then she got adopted and it didn't work out. She came back and went to another loving foster family who also treated her as their own and she had fun with her foster canine sister. Just two weeks ago she went on a hike and swimming and had an amazing day. Even though she was 12 years old, she was known for her energy. Last week, her health started declining and she went downhill very fast.

We have marked her record as adopted because, in the end, Daisy's foster family became her forever family.

Daisy is an 11 year old spayed yellow female who is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This sweet senior who used to do field trials in her younger days is in need of some TLC after a rough few years. She is good with dogs but would prefer to be a solo dog or with another very submissive dog. She is good with cats and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. Daisy weighs 54 pounds. Since coming to Lab Rescue she has perked up considerably thanks to good nutrition and finally getting the veterinary care she needed. She should not be crated, must go to a home with a fenced in yard (no invisible fences) and have people who are not gone for long periods, because this girl loves company. 

 Watch silly Daisy with her new food-dispensing ball. 

Update from Daisy's Foster Family - May 24, 2017: Daisy has her moments where she will pick up the ball and all she wants to do is play fetch. She will pick it up and drop it at your feet. She sleeps on her dog bed in her foster's bedroom. She listens very well and stays until she gets released. Sometimes she likes to snuggle with her foster dad on the couch. She likes to follow her humans around to see what they're doing. She would be a great gardening partner for someone looking for a companion. This gal is a sweetheart. She would love to find her forever family. 
Update from Daisy's foster family - March 22, 2017:

Daisy is such a doll! She has settled in nicely to her foster home and is loving playing ball in the yard. She's a wonderful house guest and doesn't ask for much - just a bit of fetch and some love.

Resources for Adopters 

Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
