Winter Haven - I rescued my dog, Daisy, 4 years ago, when she was supposed to be euthanized for having an upper respiratory problem. With the right medication, the condition cleared up and she came to her new home. Daisy was a stray after being left by her previous owner. She was underweight, had fleas, and heartworms.
After multiple vet visits and prescriptions, we managed to restore her to health. It is easy to see that my family and I saved Daisy’s life, but what is also true is that she saved mine by providing me unmatched emotional support in my worst times.
Daisy is my best friend and, on my bad days, she comforts me and never leaves my side. We have always been there for each other and always will be.
