Hi everyone, my name is Daisy
I’m Daisy, and I’m a Malinois. If you haven’t heard of a dog like me before, I love to have a job to do and really thrive on keeping my mind and body working and moving. I would love a family who is active and eager help me learn and explore the world.
I’m not all work work work though, I definitely love my down time. I have spent some time in foster care and my carer says I am very polite, super cuddly and an affectionate couch potato.
I am still learning some manners around other animals, so a home where I am the only family pet is ideal (more attention for me too!). I do have a sensitive gut, but the lovely team at Lort Smith are working on this, so I may not need to be on a specialised diet for much longer.
If I sound like I could be the lady for you, please fill out an expression of interest form as I’d love to hear from you.
Adopting an animal
Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.
Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.
- Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
- Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
- Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
- Do I have time for obedience training?
- If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
- Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
- Does the whole family want a pet?
- Will the pet be allowed inside?
- Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
- Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.
Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:
- Weekly animal food bills and necessities
- Yearly council registration
- Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
- Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
- Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
- Ongoing grooming
- Boarding fees for human holidays
- Enrichment like training, toys etc
