Daisy’s Story

We want to take a little bit of time to tell you Daisy’s story. Daisy is an 9 year old, 21 lbs. Boston mix girl who is looking for a furever home. Sadly, Daisy’s journey to Boston Buddies is not a happy one. 

We don’t know much about Daisy’s early life as a puppy but we know that she was taken in by a nice older man when she was about one or two years old. From the day he brought Daisy home they were never apart. Daisy and her dad were soul mates – Daisy was never far away from her dad and he always took her with him wherever he went. Daisy was the apple of his eye and his constant companion and the extended family loved her. Daisy was always invited to every family function – where there were often other dogs around and there was never an issue. 

When her dad died Daisy went to live with his son who had another dog that Daisy had met at earlier family functions without issue. However, Daisy and the other dog got into a fight (we don’t know the particulars) and the son picked Daisy up and body slammed her to the ground almost killing Daisy in the process. Daisy was hurt and confused and scared. After that trauma Daisy no longer felt safe and loved and she became very fearful. When her dad’s daughter heard what happened she took Daisy into her home even though she had just adopted a dog that was not friendly with other dogs. Daisy and that dog did not do well together and the daughter knew she needed to find Daisy a new home. 

When an acquaintance expressed interest in bringing Daisy into their family which included a Boston Terrier the daughter let Daisy go after being assured that Daisy would be loved and taken care of forever. Daisy and the Boston in the new home got along just fine, but one day Daisy got into a scuffle with the neighbor’s dog and, without telling Daisy’s original family, Daisy’s new owners decided they no longer wanted Daisy and they contacted Boston Buddies to relinquish her to us. We asked the family to hold on to Daisy for a few weeks until we could locate a foster home but instead they took her to the Irvine shelter and left her there. The shelter called Boston Buddies and asked us to take Daisy because she was not doing well in the shelter environment – Daisy was confused and sad and depressed and felt totally unloved after having been passed around so many times. 

Because Boston Buddies did not have any foster homes available at that time Daisy stayed at a cage free boarding facility for a few weeks. Daisy did okay for a while there but the commotion of all the dogs at the facility was just too much for her and she ended up having to be separated from the rest of the dogs and kept in isolation in a kennel run by herself at the back of that facility. 

We finally found a foster home where Daisy could be an only dog and we were ecstatic to hear that Daisy was flourishing in the love and care of her foster mom. Daisy truly bonded with her foster mom and would follow her wherever she went. Unfortunately, Daisy’s foster mom made a bad decision to see if Daisy could get along with one of her friend’s dogs. That meeting did not go well and the other dog ended up severely injured and Daisy was ejected from the foster home that same evening. 

Things continued to go downhill for Daisy while she stayed at the vet hospital in boarding for a couple weeks while we searched for another only dog foster or furever home – unfortunately no one came forward to help. Each day that Daisy sat in the vet hospital she fell deeper and deeper into a depression. Twice now she had been ripped away from people she loved and trusted and she was close to giving up. 

Daisy was in a kennel for almost a year before I picked her up. She is the sweetest and most loyal girl. I believe Daisy’s ideal home is to someone who is a homebody, where she MUST be the only dog. She is happiest when cuddled up on the couch watching tv with you. She enjoys going for walks, but also goes outside and does her business and come inside for more cuddles. 

If you would like to be part of Daisy’s recovery and give her the love she so desires and deserves, please send us an email at contactus@bostonbuddies.org
