Paws

Hi!  I’m Daffodil and although you might think that’s a funny name, you just watch me bloom!  It’s been a slow adjustment to being in a home but I’m blossoming more and more every day. My people are so proud of me! 

I’m still a little shy but have finally felt comfortable enough to come out of the crate and explore for a little bit. I'm a shy girl so need a little time to acclimate to my new environment. I'm not ready for snuggles yet, but I am working very hard on being brave and will someday!

I haven’t a CLUE what toys are but occasionally I’ll entertain you (and myself) by chasing my tail. I almost got it!  I’m not really food motivated, but I do like yummy treats more than toys right now. I have other big dogs in my foster home that have shown me all kinds of great things about being a dog - they have been helpful in getting on a potty routine. We like to eat our dinner and then go outside right away to do our business. They are also trying to show me which treats are yummy. I ignore the cat in my foster home - not sure what the big deal is so likely I would be fine with small dog. Not sure what I think of kids since I'm not used to a lot of commotion, but older kids are likely fine. 

My people said I am a quiet girl – you won’t hear me bark much, not even in my kennel. I am a good girl in my kennel and prefer to be in there even when my foster is home.  My crate is always open so I can go in there and feel safe. I have gone a few places with my foster family - while I wasn't super worried in the car, they said I wasn't totally relaxed enough to enjoy it. Like everything else, the  more exposure, I’ll likely come to like it.

I’m potty trained and crate trained, I do great on a routine. My people walk my around the yard on a leash and I do my business. I don't need a fenced yard as long as you are committed to continue leash training with me. 

I don’t seek out being petted but I sure enjoy it when you come to me to do it.  Please be patient with me and I promise to be patient with you!  All I need now is a forever family with patience, unconditional love and a daffodil size spot in your heart for me to grow!  

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
