Dog of the Week: Missy!

Meet Missy!

Missy is a 5-year-old Shih Tzu mix that has found herself on the hunt for a forever family to call her very own.

This happy, healthy girl was surrendered by her owners through no fault of her own. She is house trained and responsible when left by herself. As she has not been exposed to young children or cats, so we would not recommend a home with either. She would do fine with larger dogs, but tends to be a bit bossy with ones that are smaller than her. Ideally Missy could soak up 100 per cent of the love and attention in her new home and would, therefore, love to be an only pet. Homes with other dogs would, of course, be considered on a case-by-case basis.

While Missy did not have many rules in her first home, her foster home has been working extensively with her and are pleased to report that she now walks well on a leash and no longer barks at squirrels and dogs while out. Progress!

As you can see, Missy is missing one of her eyes. Due to an infection as a puppy it had to be removed, but Missy gets along well and you would never know she was "special needs", especially when you see her tearing around the back yard with her foster siblings!

Missy would make a great companion for a family who could continue her training and remind her who rules the roost from time to time. If you are looking for an affectionate, snuggly but active girl, Missy might be the pooch for you!

Applications for Missy or any of our rescued dogs can be submitted through our website.
