8 Years Later, Dog Returned to Shelter

April Livingston | November 29th, 2018

Daisy’s story is one that makes you scratch your head when you hear it. The sweet dog came to the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in the United Kingdom when she was a puppy. For eight years, she lived with her family. Then, that family decided it was no longer possible to care for her. So, they returned her to the same shelter she had been adopted from all those years ago. Daisy is now 9 and as a senior dog, no one seems to be interested in adopting her into their home.

Now, it’s been 100 days at the shelter and not one person has expressed interest in her. When she was a puppy, she was adopted almost immediately. But now, as a senior dog, there is no interest in her. Worst of all, poor Daisy doesn’t understand why she is back in the shelter and essentially stuck there. While many people are interested in a puppy so they can have a dog their entire life and train them their way, most don’t realize the incredible time and effort involved in owning a puppy. Puppies are high energy and require a lot of exercise and commitment. Senior dogs, on the other hand, are much lower maintenance.

Senior dogs are more laid back and may require some exercise, but not nearly as much as their puppy counterparts. Though she’s considered a senior dog, Daisy is still energetic and just loves people and fellow dogs. She especially loves toys and can often be found carrying one around in her mouth. Daisy was a wonderful family member for eight years and now all she wants is a chance to have a family again. She is currently up for adoption through Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and would love to go home with a loving family who will care for her.
