Daisy Mae is a beautiful 6 year old, 75lb, sweet older gal, Great Pyrenees that has had a rough life. She came to us as a stray trapped in central Minnesota. It seems her owners no longer wanted her so just opened their door to let her go and fend for her against the brutally cold Minnesota winter nights and wild coyotes. Sometime the first couple of days, Daisy was shot at, hitting and breaking her leg. Painful and scared out of her mind, Daisy Mae gave her rescuers (and the coyotes) her best run for their money until they finally were able to trap her ensuring her safety.
Once in the care of hoomans who care for her, Daisy was able to sleep, heal and decompress from her adventures. She is a very sweet girl, that loves food and to have the attention of the human she is with. She knows how to sit and will nudge you with her head for continual pets. Pets are her favorite and she needs them like she needs food or water and this girl deserves all the love in the world. Her leg is healing very well and will not need surgery, but will continue to be sore for awhile.
She is still a little shy with new people but warms up fairly quickly. She will let you know when she wants to go out and when she wants to come in. She loves her stuffies, bones and a nice soft bed.
As a Great Pyrenees she comes with some GP traits such as an extra loud and deep bark (although its not excessive like some like to be), being a tad territorial, and a wanderlust that can only be contained with tie out or a fenced yard where she can sit with the wind blowing in her fur.
Please note: she is NOT a working dog and craves the attention of humans. She would NOT do well as an outside dog and this will not be an option for her.
Are you this sweet ol' gal's forever?
Daisy Mae's adoption fee is $375 which covers her spay, vaccinations, microchip and any additional medical care she may have needed while in the rescue’s care.
We are a foster based rescue, we do not house dogs at a facility. Age and breed, are NLR's best guess as we often don't know who or what mom and dad are. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website www.northernlakesrescue.org
