Daisy was abandoned on the streets of Bellflower at the age of 2 months, and was found by an animal control officer. 2 months passed and the shelter scheduled to euthanize her, but luckily, a volunteer from A Home 4Ever Rescue pulled her out just in time. Several months later, she found her forever home.
Daisy’s elbows, right shoulder, and back hips are dislocated, which resulted in her deformity. Her condition is congenital, and has since learned to walk and run without the use of her wheelchair. However, after consulting with the vet about her health in the long run, we have decided to put Daisy back on the wheels to prevent from putting too much stress on her spine. She has since adapted to using her wheel cart and we can go on longer walks, and are able to go to new places without having to be carried around.
After using the wheelchair for more than 2 years, we found out that the wheelchair was actually putting stress on her spine as well. I did some research and came across prosthetic legs for dogs and have been practicing how to use them since August 2015.
Daisy is a girl with a lot of energy and spunk and is always inspiring me. I am so lucky to have her as a part of my family and cherish every single moment that I get to spend with her.
Our mission is to spread the love and positive message of animals with special needs through Daisy.
