Meet Daisy, a young French Bulldog who came into our rescue with a bad case of mange that her owner tried several times to clear up. The mange outbreak along with Daisy’s allergies just proved too much for them to handle and they surrendered her to the Village. Her foster Mom has gotten the mange cleared up and the allergies under control and Daisy is feeling much better skin wise! However, Daisy is currently eating a prescription hypoallergenic diet and will need to remain on this until she is evaluated further for allergies. Luckily, Daisy is a very good girl when it comes to baths!

Daisy is your typical young dog in that she loves to PLAY and play and play. She’s got a great happy social attitude and gets along fabulously with her two older and patient fur siblings. Daisy has earned the nickname “Crazy Daisy” from her foster parents because of the large amount of energy she has. She would do best in a home that has another dog around her size that will play with her. She has a lot of energy to burn off and having a canine playmate will help her new parents a lot in managing that energy. At this point, we think that a home without young children would be best. Daisy is just too adorable that young children might try to pick her up and injure her in the process. Older (over 8 years), dog savvy children would be acceptable.

Daisy had nares and palate surgery while in our care along with a spay and hernia repair. If that wasn’t enough, Daisy also had two pins removed from her leg. These were from an operation that was done while she was in her previous home to set a broken bone she got while either jumping or falling off the couch. Crazy Daisy! She is still recovering from surgery and while it’s early the benefits of the surgery are apparent. Her effort to breath is much reduced; although, she still snores a bit. Hopefully, this will reduce as the inflammation goes down but it probably should be said that if you are looking for a quiet bed partner, Daisy won’t be your girl.

Daisy is crate trained and also pretty much potty trained.  Although, she is learning potty training quickly, it should be expected that accidents in her new home will occur, especially since she is a young pup. She should never be punished for having an accident in the house. If you place a high value on your flooring, we would suggest looking for a more reliable potty trained pup! In addition to potty training, it must be remembered that Daisy is a young girl and needs a watchful eye. It’s imperative that her new family makes sure that she doesn’t get ahold of anything she shouldn’t.

We will be looking for a forever home that has experience with Frenchies and their breathing issues. Yes, Daisy has had corrective surgery but she’s still young; it’s possible that she may need additional surgery in the future. Also with any Frenchie, especially one with compromised breathing, overheating is an issue. Daisy will need to be actively monitored to make sure she is never allowed to overheat. We will also be looking for someone with experience with the allergies that plague our breed (and the budget and ability to handle outbreaks when they occur). We also would like another dog in the household that would appreciate Daisy’s crazy.
