I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Hello, my full name is Taoiseach's Misty but my foster family just calls me Misty. I'm a Beagle mix (my foster mom thinks the mix is yellow lab, not that it really matters much). Now for the details us girls don't like to share. I weigh between 35 and 40 pounds, I stand 20 inches tall at the shoulder and I'm 12 years old. I am considered a "special needs" dog because I am on special food for liver problems.
I'm a good dog; I like to go for walks, lay on the sofa and sleep in the sunshine. I get along well with children, cats and dogs. I do not fetch but I have been know to destroy "mice" cat toys; I like the fur. My original family had to give me up because they were no longer able to take care of me.
I was on "Death Row" at a northern Wisconsin animal shelter but I was rescued by my current foster family. I know I'm a canine senior citizen but I still have lots of companionship and love to give. I enjoy going for rides...I sit quietly and make an excellent passenger. I don't give kisses so you will not have to worry about doggie slobber.
I would make a good therapy dog because of my calm nature. Being part Beagle I do like to bark; my foster mom is helping me learn the difference between appropriate and inappropriate barking. I'm not a "lap dog" but I will be more than happy to sit next to you on the sofa so that you can pet me or rub my tummy.
I have been in my foster home since March 22, 2008 and since that time I have not slept with my foster people on their bed - I let my big foster dog sister do that, I'm content to sleep on the carpet floor in the family's bedroom. I bark when I need to go outside. When outside by foster mom has me on a tie out - I have been known to wonder off if I'm not tethered to something.
I know it's a lot to ask for but I hope I get adopted by people who have a fenced in yard to that I can run around and be free while also knowing I'll be safe. Please consider adopting me....I promise I'll do my best to be a good girl.
My picture will be coming soon.
