Daisy’s Long Journey Home

Daisy is one of those special dogs that charms everyone she meets. She isn’t boisterous or attention seeking. She is, quite simply, sweet.

When SPCA International’s partner organization in the Middle East found Daisy, she was in terrible shape. She was lying in a ditch with a bloody stump where one of her feet should have been. It looked like someone had hacked off her paw with a sharp knife.

Daisy had mange and was so filthy that three veterinarians refused to even treat her. Finally, we found a kind and talented veterinarian who saw Daisy’s will to survive.

It was touch and go for a while. We didn’t know if Daisy would make it, but the SPCA International community stepped up in a big way to make sure her veterinary care was funded.

One member of our community, named Eileen, stepped up in an even bigger way. She offered to adopt Daisy. Eileen says, “Daisy took my heart from the moment I saw her picture. It was the look in her eyes.” 

After months of careful veterinary care, Daisy was finally ready to make the trip to the U.S.  Now, over a year after Daisy almost died in a ditch, she is finally home with Eileen.

Daisy is getting around well on three legs and takes a few walks every day with Eileen, her husband, and their Chihuahua, Tink. Eileen wasn’t sure how Tink would feel about a new dog in the house, but he immediately accepted Daisy. Tink and Daisy have no problem sharing their food and they act like they have been together all their lives. Daisy’s journey has been long, painful and difficult, but she is finally home with a family who will love and care for her for the rest of her days. Thank you to everyone who made Daisy’s journey home possible.
