Daisy is a gorgeous and affectionate 2-year old, 60-pound Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix (aka “Golden Pyrenees”) who surely turns heads wherever she goes. Daisy is a tripod- she had her right rear leg amputated due to an old injury – but it doesn’t hold her back. Her current foster family says this three-legged cutie gets around just fine. She might need a little help and practice going up stairs (she didn’t live inside until recently), but she enjoys a regular dog life. She loves going for rides in the car, adores people, and gets along well with dogs and cats.
Daisy came from North Carolina where she was raised on a family’s farm, living mainly outside and in the garage. (Her mom was a Golden and her dad was a Pyrenees). She is a happy girl, and is easygoing with other animals—she even shared her food with the barn cats. Since Daisy’s been with her foster family she has quickly adapted to the weather and likes to romp around in the snow. As she gets more comfortable indoors, she is enjoying basking in the luxury of soft dog beds and any furniture she is allowed on. Like classic Goldens, she has quite a bit of puppy in her; she loves to play boisterously with other dogs, fetch for people and is eager to please. Daisy also a great cuddle-bug; she likes to sit on the couch and rest her head on your lap to bask in snuggles.
Daisy is a beautiful combination of her breeds. She has a regal stance, a silky-shiny coat and dark, almond-shaped eyes that are very expressive and alert. Soft and fluffy and happy to laze away the day after a walk, this golden girl takes notice of strangers, and may bark to let you know that someone is around, but will quickly become a best friend to that new person.
Smart, patient, and devoted to family and friendly with other dogs and pets, this fluffy nugget wants to be a fun-loving family member.
