Sheltie Nation

You go Girl!

Daisy, a rescue who weighed 64 pounds and was going to be euthanized in May, 2010, has come to her fur-ever home. She has lost half her body weight and now is a qualified service dog. She has an amazing story, and was featured on CNN in January in a story about obese pets for her weight loss.

Daisy’s story is an inspiration to all who want to rescue a dog. An example of a little girl who escaped death to go on to have a happy and productive second chance at life.
Daisy is also not shy of the camera and loves to pose for photos. She seems very proud to wear her new vest and takes her job seriously!

Hugs to you for giving her a GREAT life, Beth!

  12. I sure agree with Sullivan’s note above. Wonderful little girl, looks so happy! This is a great story. Having rescued nine little Shelties myself, I can attest to the fact they DO know you saved them and are forever grateful and terribly loving. They have certainly made my life worth living every day. God bless you both, Beth and Daisy. I wish you years and years of love.
