Pet of the Week: Dainty Daisy

Daisy was found as a stray and is looking for a new home.

Editor's note: This is a weekly series called "Pet of the Week" where we feature a companion up for adoption from Pet Haven of Minnesota.

Every two weeks, Richfield Petco partners with Pet Haven of Minnesota for adoption events for dogs and cats that need new homes.

This week's Richfield Patch Pet of the Week is Daisy:

Daisy is a small Miniature Pinscher from Spencer, Iowa, who was brought to People for Pets after being found as a stray. Daisy has the heart-warming personality that would be hard for any family to part with.

Daisy is approximately 2-3 years old, is good with dogs, and showed encouraging behavior during testing with cats and children while at Pet Haven.

She is smart as a whip- maybe smarter! As she knows to go to her kennel when commanded, and knows to sit and shake, and she’ll even retrieve toys on command.

Daisy is a perfect fit (only 15lbs!) for a family that can offer her room to lounge and snuggle, and the physical energy to play with her outside. But mostly Daisy craves the attention and affection she gets from human companionship. Daisy does harbor some fear of new people, but with patience and positive human interaction, Daisy’s apprehensions are replaced with warmth and caring. But for adoption, Daisy would be best suited by a family without small children who are less attuned to their movements and how their behavior affects dogs.

I know! One of my best friends has a male min pin named Bruno. They could be twins!
