This is Miss Daisy May – a rescued shelter puppy.
At 5-1/2 weeks old Daisy was mauled by a larger dog. As a result of that attack she lost an eye and suffered a fracture to the bone adjacent to her eye. Daisy, her mother, and her siblings ended up at the local animal shelter after this incident.
I volunteered for the shelter by taking photos for petfinder profiles. One morning when I was at the shelter I heard wimpering from behind the front desk. I looked down into a large tote and saw this little puppy, with stitches in one eye, and a beautiful dark patch of hair around the other. I asked if it was okay if I picked her up.
From the moment I looked into her beautiful little eye, and let her snuggle into the hair around my neck, Daisy stole my heart. I decided to foster Daisy that day until she was well enough, and old enough, to be returned to the shelter and put up for adoption.
Daisy is now 2 years old (as of Sept 2015) and she is still with us. (smiles) We grew so attached to her we couldn’t give her up!
She is pictured here with my husbands Fire Fighter gear.
