Daisy is a lovely girl who arrived with us after she was signed over to the police. As she’s had quite a stressful start, she did take a little while to settle into kennels. Now that she's started to settle and has become more confident around her carers, her sweet and affectionate personality is starting to show through. Daisy is looking for new owners who ideally have Staffie experience, but experience with nervous dogs in general would also be acceptable.
Daisy finds meeting new people quite daunting and can be nervous and a little closed off to begin with. After a number of meetings however, her confidence grows and she becomes much more friendly and affectionate. With this in mind, new owners will need to do multiple visits with Daisy to allow her to start to build up a bond with them. They will also need to give her time and space to settle in and get to know them and not force her into interacting with too many people at once.
Daisy does enjoy having a good run around and play in our enclosed areas. She will happily chase toys that are thrown for her, although she hasn't quite worked out that she needs to bring the toy back to continue the game. Her recall will also require work before she is let off lead in open areas, as she doesn't always listen when you call her name. She will also need all the basic obedience training, as currently she appears to only know 'sit'. Doing this using positive reinforcement based methods will also be a great way to help build up a bond with daisy and increase her confidence.
When meeting other dogs, Daisy is quite unsure and nervous but does still allow them to approach and say hello. She will sometimes say hello back but seems to prefer to ignore them and keep her distance. Due to this, and her initial nervousness, we would recommend that Daisy be the only dog in the home, to allow new owners to give her all the attention she requires.
With the right family, who will understand that it will take a long time for Daisy to fully trust them and settle down into the new environment, she will make a wonderful addition.
