Daisy was rescued from the area of the evacuations at the base of Fuego volcano shortly after the June 3rd eruption. She was literally a skeleton draped with flaccid skin and dry, brittle hair. Her condition was not a result of the eruption, but of months, perhaps years of neglect and malnourishment. Additionally, Daisy had a huge TVT, also known as ‘sticker tumor’, which is an STD that is passed from dog to dog during mating.

Daisy and a dog named Cali who also had TVT were fostered by fabulous Jessica Hoult in San Lucas until last week. Both dogs had multiple Vincristine treatments. She is now fully recovered from herTVT, spayed and ready to be adopted.

Daisy has filled out and is now a sleek, beautiful and very loving dog. She is now up at the rescue and beginning training and doing extremely well. She is very smart, food motivated, and extremely affectionate and friendly. She walks beautifully on leash, is unfazed by hustle and bustle in town, and loves people. She gets on  well with other dogs, rides great in the car, and is pretty much a dream dog.

Daisy loves people, and is great with everyone, including kids. She is calm, gentle, and easy-going. She would do beset in a home without cats, as she does like to chase them.
