Daisy had to have emergency surgery 1 week ago to have very rapidly growing baseball sized cancerous tumor removed as well as a large fatty tumor. We are all very happy that she gets to spend Christmas at home. The Christmas tree wouldn’t have been as bright without her pretty face!!

I’m sorry this was late for Christmas Denise & Jenni, but I’m glad she is doing so well! :))

Daisy is a 2-year-old tri-color spayed female Sheltie. She spent a lot of her life so far living in a crate, but is blossoming now that she is in a foster home. Playing ball is her favorite thing; and her favorite ball is a soft, silly-looking stuffed tomato. She’ll chase it, catch it and throw it back at you for hours!

Please contact Northern California Sheltie Rescue to fill out an application for this sweet girl!

UPDATE 9/1/13: Daisy has now been adopted! :))

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!
