No one knows exactly what happened to Daisy, a loveable three-year-old pooch found in Fort Lauderdale. When she arrived at the Broward County shelter, the vets found a bullet in her side.
According to Broward County Animal Care, in late June, the shelter’s veterinary staff performed a routine examination every new dog receives when they noticed something unusual. An x-ray showed the bullet underneath Daisy’s skin. Thankfully, no major damage had occurred, but the bullet had been in place for a few months, and an abscess had formed around it.
After only a few weeks in the shelter’s care, Daisy had recovered and is now a happy and healthy dog. Despite the violence she experienced, she is a wonderful and loving pup, ready to meet her forever family, says shelter staff.
To adopt Daisy (A2198841), foster, or take a dog out for lunch, email the shelter at email@example.com. To schedule a meet-and-greet appointment and learn more about adoptable pets, email ACADadoptions@broward.org.
