Daisy Puff is white with a few beige spots. She has a puffy coat, round black eyes, a pink nose, and a tail that curves over her back. While thinking, sometimes one of her teeth gets caught on her lip. When she stands, each of her front legs splays out to the side—as if she is a ballet dancer, standing in second position.
Daisy Puff is a lap dog who sleeps much of the day. We are looking for people who are retired and who spend almost all of the day at home, without ever having small children around, and ideally who have had a very small dog before. She prefers to walk for only about 5 minutes, ideally on the grass to protect her delicate feet.<p>The ultimate, petite, gentle, precious, smart doggie, Daisy Puff is a delightful companion—snuggling by your side or in your lap as you read, write, talk, or watch TV! If you must go about the house in your daily activities, she is pleased to snooze nearby, resting in her bed on the floor. Her wee size is somewhat masked by her lovely, puffy coat. She adores car travel, and her personal needs require only the smallest outside, supervised space! She climbs up and down a 14-step, carpeted staircase with gusto, multiple times a day. Daisy Puff easily sleeps through the night without waking, and is ready for breakfast and outside time at about 6:30 in the morning. After that, she is ready to snuggle and snooze in your arms again or rest in her bed.
Daisy Puff is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed, and heartworm negative. She has an unobtrusive scratch on her cornea, but it appears to have no effect on her vision. She is given a few drops of medicine in each ear twice a week and an ear cleaning once a week, which will need to be continued. Daisy Puff has pearly white, well-cared for teeth. She eats a prescription diet for bladder care (Royal Canin Urinary SO, moderate calorie), which also must be continued.
Daisy Puff was brought into IAR because her owner had health issues and could no longer care for her.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
