Meet this gorgeous redhead, Norah, also known as Daisy by her foster family.  Daisy is an incredible 2-year-old golden girl who journeyed all the way from Turkey to be your new best friend.  Daisy was found on the streets of Turkey after she had given birth to a litter of puppies not long before.  She found her way to a loving woman who took care of her in Turkey for several months, and eventually, she was sent here to America to start her new life.  Daisy’s foster family has nothing but amazing things to say about her and knows she’s only going to grow to be more and more wonderful with training, and as time goes on.

Daisy is currently living in a home with 2 senior small dogs and does great with both.  She plays really well with the one, and is super respectful of the other one who’s much older and just wants to sleep.  She has had many playdates with all ages and sizes of dogs, and also greatly enjoys roughhousing with the bigger doggies.  Socializing, and having another dog in her forever home will be really important for Daisy.  Daisy loves everyone she meets… kids, adults, seniors... she’s met them all, and everyone is her best friend as long as she’s getting pets!  She does like to jump and can get mouthy while playing, so for this reason she will not be placed with kids under 6 years old.    She is currently walking 3-5 miles a day and it's undoubtedly her favorite time of the day.  She could be on the opposite side of the house, and when she hears her foster mom pull out the leash she flies like a bullet to the front door!  She does tend to pull on a leash as she gets so excited to be outside.  Because of this, her foster family has been using a harness on her, and she walks beautifully with it!  While her foster hasn’t had the chance to bring her, Daisy would absolutely love places like the dog beach and hiking with her people.

Daisy has been a fantastic house guest and has left all of her foster's belongings intact.  She has also done really well with house training, though she will need some additional direction once she’s adopted until she knows where she is supposed to go potty, and she gets on a schedule.  Daisy is super smart, and incredibly food motivated.  Pull out a treat and this gorgeous girl will do anything!  Daisy’s book of tricks currently includes ‘sit’, ‘paw’, ‘wait’, ‘come’, and ‘drop it’.  She does great waiting for her breakfast and dinner and waiting at the door before her foster mom tells her it's ‘okay’ to go.  Her forever family will need to be committed to continuing training, and keeping her mentally stimulated.  

The only thing Daisy’s foster says she could use some work with is being in the car, but they know she will get better with more time and exposure.  This sweet girl hasn’t had a lot of experience in the car and gets pretty nervous.  Her forever family will just need to be dedicated to taking her on short car trips at first, and making car rides a super positive experience.  While she doesn’t love the ride there, once Daisy pulls up to Starbucks for her regular pupachino she forgets she’s even in the car anymore!  Treats make everything better!  Having a doggie companion that is comfortable on car trips may also help to ease her nerves.

Daisy is truly one incredible dog, who is looking for a family just as amazing as she is.  She sleeps in bed with her foster mom every night all night long and will make her way up to the top of the bed for snuggles every night before her foster mom turns out the light, and every morning when the alarm goes off.  Her days are spent cuddling on the couch with her people, enjoying the great outdoors, and playing, both with other dogs and her endless number of squeaky toys!  This is exactly what Daisy wants in her forever home, so if you think you fit the bill, please fill out our adoption application here::: Adoption Application
