Plenty of Pets

Daisy is a six-year-old springer spaniel who loves to play in the water. She is spayed and vaccinated, and is good with children, cats and most other dogs.

She does pull when on leash so needs some training in that area, and has a limited-ingredient diet, due to a sensitive gastro intestinal tract.

She is an adoptable with Good Bones Dog Rescue. For more information visit
