Daisy, the friendly and loving elderly dog, is desperate to find a loving home where she can share her affection and warmth after she was saved just before lockdown.
Since then, she has been at the RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire branch where she has put on weight and has enjoyed plenty of attention to get her ready for her retirement home.
Steph McCawley, support engagement officer at RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire branch, said: “Daisy is an absolute delight and all the staff love her.
“She is so affectionate and is in desperate need of a home where she can share this affection and get plenty of love back in return.

“She loves treats and snoozing and, more than anything, being cuddled and cuddling. A home which could offer the latter would be perfect for Daisy where she could feel safe and relaxed.
“Daisy is looking for a home that is quite quiet, where she is the only dog, though she can live with children aged six and upwards. She would be perfect for an older person too.”
RSPCA inspector Anthony Joynes was asked to take Daisy in the animal welfare charity’s care after her owner said he was no longer able to meet her needs due to a change in family circumstances.
Anthony said: “Poor Daisy has a missing eye from an incident which happened a couple of years ago involving someone attacking her.
"As with many elderly dogs, she has many lumps and bumps too, bless her!
“But she is incredibly sweet in nature and has plenty of life left in her. I am so glad she is now ready to be re-homed and that eventually she may be able to find a home she deserves where she can enjoy her twilight years.”
