Daisy & Baboo
Meet Darling Daisy & Baby! Golden Retriever mix females 5/6 & 7 years old. A bonded pair looking for a happy home.
Background: Daisy and her sister Baby were first adopted through HFP two years ago after being rescued from a backyard only situation. They were never allowed inside and spent their days together isolated in a backyard with the occasional presence of children and chihuahuas coming in and out of the house. They never received love, attention, or were ever welcomed inside.
After we accepted them in our program, they found a great home in Sacramento, However, due to recent health issues, their adopters are no longer being able to take proper care of them, so once again Daisy and Baby are looking for a family (strong preference that they go together.)
Owner Surrender Notes: “Daisy and her sister (Baboo) are the sweetest, most loving dogs I have ever owned. Daisy is protective of Baboo and her owners. She is also easy going and loves to play chase with Baboo in wide open spaces. She will come to you when she needs out. They do not cross thresholds and do not come in the kitchen. She will bring her new owners great love and joy.
Baboo is a sweet and loving dog. Protective and easy to train. She does pull a little on the leash sometimes. She is a love pup and loves attention. Both Baboo and her sister Daisy are inseparable and just the most loving dogs you will ever have the pleasure to be with.

Daisy gets along with her sibling Baboo. They have no other dog friends, but seem ok with little dogs. They do not care for medium to large dogs. They can be leash reactive to dogs in public so would do best in a quieter neighborhood or walked in areas where there are not lots of dogs.
The ideal home would have plenty of room for Baboo to run. She likes to run far off leash and chase her sister Daisy. Baboo can swim in the river but she is not as keen as Daisy. Although neither of them has ever gone in the swimming pool. Baboo fell in once when they were playing but she swam out. Ideally a really active couple or family. Baboo would run with you

Then we go for a half hour walk at 9 a.m. around the neighborhood. Another treat upon return. They lounge on the back deck or their sofa and then they might go out in the back yard to chase squirrels. I feel then at 4:30 p.m. dry dog food. Then we go for a walk at 5.00 p.m. around the neighborhood. Then we go in the back yard for a while till sunset and then inside for the evening.
Please provide a summary of the “ideal” home for your dog:: The ideal home for my dogs would be a home that has some wide open fenced land and also an active couple or family. I love to see them run when the lake is down and they have a large area to play with each other.
