Hi everyone, my name is Abby and I am searching for my dream home. I am a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix and I am about 19 months old. I have been with my current home for about four months, and although I have a very loving home, I am looking for a place to stretch my legs and a large fenced yard where I run and run! A fenced yard is a must for me because I’m so curious, I can be a wanderer if let loose.
I enjoy laying in the yard and watching everything go by. I would be best suited with a family that is home the majority of the time and someplace where I can explore and relax outside. If I had some chickens or farm animals to help protect, that would be even better! After all I am a working breed and I need to keep my mind occupied. I have been around children of all ages and although I am very gentle, I am a big girl and can sometimes knock the little ones down by mistake. My home doesn’t have a cat, but when I visit my friends next door, I ignore him.
I go to doggie daycare and have always gotten positive report cards back, but sometimes when on leash I can get a little too excited and pull towards other dogs. I am a little timid because my past life wasn’t the best. I get nervous when I hear a new sound I’m not used to and men make me scared. Sometimes I bark at them, but if they hang around long enough, I warm up to them, especially if they give me treats, so please let me warm up to you if you are a male.
My mom and I have been doing a lot of training with a clicker, and I love to keep busy. I like to be your shadow, so if my new family likes working in the yard or the garden, I can be a great help to you!
Miss Daisy is a beautiful, playful, affectionate 4 year old husky mix. She absolutely loves people and gives an excellent kiss or five! She is cuddly and sleeps well through the night. She enjoys car rides and is a very well-behaved passenger. She is quite good on a leash, but not perfect, so it would be great to practice this skill together.
Daisy would be well suited to a reasonably active family, as she has some typical young husky energy to burn. She settles and is calm in the evenings, but would do best with physical and mental stimulation. She is fully housetrained and not destructive when left alone.
She is playing well 90% of the time with her foster siblings but as a girl who was in a shelter for over a year, it comes as no surprise that she does exhibit some resource guarding behaviours. Thus far, this has only been with other dogs and not humans. Daisy will need a confident and assertive handler to help her overcome this issue.
Because she has resource guarding issues, and because is a giant bouncy pup, we recommend that she go to a home with older children only.
Daisy would probably do well with a playful fur sibling, but she would need to be in a home with a confident dog.
