UPDATE 12/14/20: Daisy's been adopted!!!

It's hard to imagine what this girl has been through in her short life, but she's safe now and looking for a forever home in CNY.

Daisy is a 2-3-year-old mixed breed mix around 50 lbs. Her last owners posted on Facebook that they were going to take her out back and…….if someone didn’t take her. Thankfully a Good Samaritan stepped up, rescued her, and brought her to the Herkimer County Humane Society, where she is now safe.

Daisy has probably been tied up outside for most of her life. She hates being at the shelter. "She doesn’t show well when people come to see the dogs because she barks a lot, and everyone quickly overlooks her," says HCHS. "She wants to be in a home with people who can help her become a family pet. They don't know how she would be with cats but still suggest a home without them.
