Battersea’s Unluckiest Dog May Bring You The Best Love Ever
It’s a case of hoping ‘unlucky’ is the new lucky for a beautiful 9-year-old dog named Daisy who has been called Battersea Cats and Dogs Home’s Unluckiest Dog.
Daisy has been at the shelter in their main London location for over 100 days, and bless her heart, it’s not the first time she’s been in the shelter.
Her first stint was when the gorgeous mastiff was just a pup. She was adopted after just 15 days in the kennel. Now, eight years later, Battersea hopes that Daisy will find her fur-real, fur-ever home. No one has looked at Daisy or shown any interest in her since she got back to the rescue three months ago, but officials are hoping that naming her ‘unlucky’ may bring about some fortune for her.
Steve Craddock is with Battersea and believes that because Daisy is an older, larger dog, prospective parents are not giving her a second thought, much less chance. Craddock says that she may be in her twilight years, but acts ever the big baby who likes to play, bounce around and curl up for cuddle sessions.
Best, dogs like Daisy don’t need housetraining or as much energy exerted as younger dogs do because they’re more interested in human affection and cuddles with their people. Older dogs will cherish every second they have with their humans and make wonderful family pets.
Daisy will be a great one-dog-household dog and prefers not to bring cats into her family, but otherwise would be happy as could be to settle into the rest of her life by Christmas.
Daisy is specifically looking for a home where she would be the only dog. She would prefer to live in a quiet adults-only home and cannot live with cats. If the right person comes forward, she could be in a new home by Christmas.
So, if you’re in the area and looking for a big bunch of holiday love, consider the Unluckiest Dog–you’ll be lucking into the best love you can find–that of a beautiful senior dog.
