Adoptables Wednesday–Meet Misty!
Misty is a 9 year old black spayed female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. She is good with other dogs but not cats, and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 47 lbs and should gain a few. Misty is a very sweet, friendly and gentle girl who has no idea she is 9!
Update from Misty’s foster family – 5/2/2013
Misty has only been with us for a few days, but she has settled into our household routine quickly. On our very first walk together she was excited and did lots of sniffing and pulling. By the morning walk the next day she had improved dramatically and by the evening she was walking nicely. She adapted well to the Easy Walk harness. She has reacted, with a great deal of excitement, to squirrels that we have seen and would give chase if I let her go. She notices birds and reacts with interest to them also. Since the weather was so nice the second evening she was with us, we decided to take Misty and the resident Lab out to dinner at an outdoor cafe in our neighborhood. Both girls were extremely well behaved even with other dogs and diners nearby. Misty is people oriented and loves to snuggle and be stroked and petted. She especially loves belly rubs and will roll onto her back, with her legs straight up in the air, and wiggle her whole body, just begging you to rub her belly. Her tail is like a metronome, going back and forth all the time. In fact the most noise we’ve heard from her is the tail thumping on the wall. We have yet to hear her bark. At night she sleeps loose in the bedroom, alternating between a dog bed and the floor. So far her manners have been good. She is very food motivated and is a quick and eager learner. In the house, and in the fenced yard, she will usually come quickly when called. She enjoys being near you. If you’re looking for a loving and devoted companion with a sweet personality and pleasant energy level Misty may be the girl for you. With Mother’s Day fast approaching Misty asked me to mention that she since has been a mother several times she is hoping that someone will now honor her with a permanent loving home where she can be showered with love on May 12.
