Battersea Dogs &Cats Home, UK, first welcomed Daisy when she was just a puppy. Back then, she had spent only 15 days there, after which, she got adopted. Now, eight years later, her family has sadly become unable to take care of her and gave her back to the shelter from where they adopted her. The 9-years-old dog now needs a new home. However, no one seems to be interested in the sweet pooch.
It has been 100 days since Daisy came back to the shelter and yet, no one has shown interest in her. Daisy barely had to wait to get adopted as a puppy, but now that she is a senior dog, her chances of being adopted have plummeted straight down.
“Many people prefer to rehome puppies and younger dogs so that they can have them for their whole lives,” Steve Craddock, centre manager at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, said in a press release. “But people often forget how much time, training and exercise younger dogs need. Older dogs are often much more relaxed than younger dogs, and in a lot of cases they would rather just have a cuddle on the sofa and some human affection than be running around chasing tennis balls all day.”
Nevertheless, Daisy still has a lot of energy and thinks she is still the one- year- old pup. She has a lot of o love to give and she can give it to anyone who seeks for it.
“While Daisy is in the twilight years of her life, she still acts like a big baby,” Craddock said. “She loves to bounce around and play with her favourite people, curl up for cuddles and is always most comfortable carrying around one of her soft toys.”
Because Daisy has to adjust to a drastic change after leaving the only family she has ever known, she often carries a toy around to cope with it. It seems to make her feel safer.
After living with the perfect family for eight long years, she has a chance to give another family all the love she has.
“Older dogs have a lifetime of love to give and will cherish every moment spent with their favourite people,” Craddock said.
