Description:
Daisy came into rescue in Oct 2020 after her family left her at a shelter due to her paralysis.
 She was slightly overweight, in pain from her injury and weak.  She was started on pain medicine which helped her move around better and gain strength.  This helped her lose a pound or two which also helped her pain level.  She has since gradually progressed from not being able to use her hind legs much to standing and moving around on all fours regularly.  She still has weakness and is slightly uncoordinated, but she continues to improve every day.  She has been evaluated by a Neurology Vet who feels that she would not benefit from surgery as she has had such functional improvement over the last several months.  She does remain somewhat incontinent of urine, but this is managed by helping her empty her bladder 3-4 times a day.  She is incontinent of stool.

Daisy is a goofy girl that is always happy, despite her injury.  She loves being outside when the weather is nice and enjoys sitting in the sunshine.  She sleeps quietly all night in her crate. She loves snuggling in bed and loves any place that is warm and cozy.  She loves going for walks and uses both a wheel chair for fast paces and a harness for slower strolls.  
She is very food motivated, smart and eager to please.  She gets along well with her 3 foster siblings.  

Daisy likely will need pain medicine for the rest of her life.  She will likely never have strong hind legs.  She will need a home without stairs.  

Daisy is vaccinated, microchipped and spayed.
