Daisy has suffered a tremendous amount of neglect and abuse in her life. This has left her with a terror of humans and behaviours which reflect this fear. She’s highly averse to human interaction and while being cared for by the DBARC team she only allows Janet, foster mum and manager of DBARC, close to her.
To rehome a dog with such extreme, hard to manage behaviours is very difficult, there are serious implications for the dogs themselves, the rescue and of course the adoptive families. After months of rehabilitation work at DBARC, with slow progress, it was decided that Daisy would stay with her foster mum Janet.
When Daisy reached the stage of being able to handle sufficient attention, she had successful cataract surgery which improved her vision and went some way to helping her to adapt to living with and around humans. However, despite all the expert, patient care and love which she receives with Janet and the DBARC team, Daisy remains a dog who is highly nervous of new situations, most humans and regular experiences. The sanctuary which Janet provides for this special dog is literally life-saving for Daisy.
