BCFS is thrilled to wrap up 2015 with the good news that Upsy Daisy has been adopted! Former puppy mill mama Daisy went to her forever home on December 30th after weeks in foster care with Ashley and her own pup.
Upsy Daisy celebrated her first Christmas of freedom from a puppy mill with her foster family, and dressed pretty for the special occasion.
Foster mom Ashley worked on Upsy Daisy’s house-training and says it’s coming along! Daisy isn’t 100% house-trained yet and doesn’t like to do her business on walks, she prefers to use a pee pad when she gets back home. To encourage Daisy to go during walks, when she does Ashley uses positive reinforcement, giving her praise and a treat.
Speaking of walks, playful Daisy likes to play a game of “try to catch me” on walks and Ashley says she mischievously steals her clothes from the bedroom and drags them into the living room to sleep on. Daisy also likes cuddling, stuffed toys and a soft pillow, a far cry from a puppy mill’s cage!
Congratulations to Upsy Daisy’s new family on her adoption! Upsy Daisy has no real behavioural issues and at only 3 years old, this sweet pea will make a wonderful family member for many years!
Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in adopting Daisy, and with so many unwanted dogs needing good homes, BCFS hopes you’ll consider adopting another, and keep following our work as we continue our mission of rescuing, fostering, rehabilitating and rehoming animals. Please adopt, don’t shop!
A Happy New Year for Upsy Daisy, starting her new life with her forever family!
