This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

I would like to introduce everyone to Daisy 14-307. There was not a lot of history available about her, so we have been learning as we go. Daisy is a 4.5-year-old purebred Golden. She is not spayed yet and has had puppies in the past. Her spay surgery is set up for next week. Her heartworm and fecal tests were negative. She is 68 pounds and the vet thought she was a little "pudgy" and said we would need to be careful after her spay that she didn't become overweight. I think she may have had puppies not long ago, though, so some of the extra weight might be from that. Geesh, give a girl a break right!?! :) Otherwise, she checked out with no health issues.

Daisy has quite a few puppy mill traits and is pretty timid and insecure. She wants to be by me at all times. She will get up on the couch and put her head in my lap and want me to pet her; if I stop, she will do the Golden nudge until I start again. She is a VELCRO dog and always wants you near.


She sleeps on the bed and will whine, pace, and pant if you don't allow her up by you. Daisy also has storm anxiety and has shown signs of separation anxiety if left alone in the house. She does fine in a crate while we are at work, but if we go outside and she is not in the crate, she will whine, pace, pant, and scratch at the door. Daisy is 100 percent housebroken, has no guarding of her food, but does let out a growl to my other dogs if she has a bone. She saw several cats at the vet and ignored them.

She is very calm, but does bark and jump up when first let out of her crate. She does not know how to play yet and does not engage in play with my other two dogs. She did play referee once and let out a growl and got in between them when they were roughhousing, but took it no further. She usually will just stay by me when they are playing. She does not know what a tennis ball is and will not fetch. She walks well on a leash. She is startled easily by the unknown sounds of the outside world. For this reason, I think a fence would be required. She also does not like loud sounds in the house, examples....vacuum cleaner, loud voices, hair dryer.

Daisy is a work in progress and with love and patience, I know this sweet girl will become more comfortable and secure! I will keep you updated as she starts to come out of her shell and her true personality begins to shine!
