Daisy is an 8 year old female English Cocker Spaniel. She came into foster due to a sad family break up and has clearly been a much loved pet and is in fantastic health for her age. She is reported to have a few guarding issues – we have seen one incident of this in foster and she was easily distracted with a treat and gave up the piece of paper she had found with no issues. She is a it of a grump when she gets tired but then again, aren’t we all! I would suggest children in the home are teenage plus due to this as she does clearly love older children.
She is great with other dogs though previous owner did say she isn’t keen on Labradors or German Shepherds but this has not been tested in foster. She is currently living with 3 other dogs and has been fantastic and is now joining in with play. She is in foster with a cat and does on occasion chase but means no harm but also on occasion will ignore the cat – if you have a dog savvy cat it would be possible for them to live together. She is a very loving girl who is always ready with a kiss and cuddle and loves nothing more than curling up on your knee for a sleep – typically of a Cocker, she is quite needy. In the past Daisy has had Pancreatitis and is on a food suitable for that and on treats also help keep this under control. There have been no issues whilst in foster. She is also on a joint supplement.
Daisy is great on the lead and does pull a little (she’s a spaniel!) but is easy to correct. She will need some brushing up on her recall training. Despite her being 8 she is very active and loves her walks – she would happily spend the day out walking if she was allowed! At night she has her own little routine, which if followed means a settled night and she is happy to sleep in her crate. It will be important for whoever has Daisy to give her time to settle. Her first couple of days in foster were very unsettled and she was quite confused but once she settled and learnt new routines she really has become a fantastic little dog who is very loyal and happy.
