Phoenix Cutie Needs A Home

As you know if you read my hubs, I am passionate about animals, their safety, welfare and happiness. Therefore, I do what I can to help. Having a small yard and home already filled with two dogs and two cats, plus working full time, unfortunately does not allow me, personally, to bring any more animals home. So, I do what I can to help by working with The Arizona Humane Society weekly to get the word out about some of the larger and sometimes, a little older dogs, who seem to take more time in finding their "forever" homes. I post articles here on Hubpages, my Facebook Page and continually bombard all my friends and co-workers. It's all about networking right? And since our precious animal friends have no voice we must do it for them.

Today, I would like to introduce you to "Daisy". Daisy is an adorable "Austrailian Cattle Dog". I have one at home, Gracie, who is an Aussie/Border Collie mix. I got Gracie from a shelter when she was about a year and she has been the sweetest, most loving dog ever!!!

Today's Spotlight Dog:

You would never know this little cutie is seven. She has lots of energy and shows no signs of slowing down. She loves being around family and will lick you all over your face if you bend down.

She loves to play ball in the back yard with children who are at least eight years old. She gets a little nervous around cats and she might do well as the only doggie in your home.

She weighs 30 pounds and will try and crawl into your lap. She has all the great attributes to make a wonderful family pet.

She trots around and is always looking for adventure. She would love to find a human buddy to go running, rollerblading or biking. She loves to go hiking as well. She loves to explore and go camping and other escapades when it's cool outside. She needs regular exercise to keep her happy as she is a "working dog" breed.

Without fun exercises, Daisy will take matters into her own paws and try to escape so a block wall fence, at least six feet high is a must.

She already knows how to use a doggie door. However, if you don't have one, a little brush up training would be helpful

Daisy is an intelligent dog, and the wheels in her mind are always turning. She is a great problem solver especially when it comes to getting tasty treats out of a Kong toy. Daisy already knows the basic commands, but she loves to learn new tricks. Afterall, cattle dogs need a job!

You can adopt Daisy NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion, 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix.  Her adoption fee is only $35.00 because she is part of our Prime Time Dog Program.   Daisy has already had her spay surgery, vaccinations, a colorful collar and leash, an AHS I.D. tag.  She also gets a free follow-up veterinary exam.

 For more information about Daisy, please call (602) 997-7586 Ext. 1045 and ask for animal ID number A264844 or log on to

Please note: This pet might have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter; however, the AHS has dozens more wonderful pets that also need loving homes. Please take a moment to meet some of the other dogs, cats and other companion animals at the shelter! To see all our adoptable animals right now,

Please remember, never, ever, ever purchase a puppy from a pet store as 99% come from puppymills. Our shelters are filled with beautiful, loving mixed breeds as well as over 30% are purebreds just waiting to go home with you. If we are able to close the pet stores down, the puppy mills will have no place to sell their puppies and this atrocity will finally stop!! Visit the non-profit site: to learn more about this horrific situation.

      Thank God for all of you that work for your orphaned pets. I have a house full. Most of them have been lost and found their way into my life. They are my best friends and I can't imagine life without them. Amen on the pet shops. I know people want to rescue that " cute little doggie in the window " but if everyone would stop doing that there would be no market for the losers that supply them and puppy mills would end.
