Daisy was adopted from a shelter and only two days after she ran away from that home, fearing she would be hurt again. People around the town had begun to spot her and would leave meals outside for her to eat. They tried to no avail to get her to come home but every time she would run away and not be seen for days after.
The Hollister Animal Lost and Found Facebook group began tracking her movements, people posted sightings and even discussed how they might be able to get close to her.
Having tried everything they could a 6-year-old thought she had what it took to make friends with the petrified pooch.
The young girl took a different approach when they located the dog in a field. Daisy was visibly very hesitant at first. That all changed when the girl decided to get onto her stomach.
