Missy's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Missy's Story...
Missy was a breeder all of her life. She wasn't in a puppy mill, per se, but was with a formerly respected show breeder who turned greedy and heartless when she put some of her dogs in a breeder dog auction in the beautiful boonies of Missouri - right in the middle of Puppy Mill Central. Missy is a white and black full breed Japanese Chin. She was born December 12, 2003 so she is coming up on her 5th birthday - plenty of time left in her life to be a well loved pet. She weighs just about 10 pounds. Missy was quite shy when she got here, as you can see by these pix. The ones on the pink blanket were taken the day after she got here, she was still so scared but she is coming out of her shell beautifully now. She likes to be held and is learning to play. I want to mention that many members of the Japanese Chin Club were instrumental in getting these dogs away from the auction. Thank you all very much.


The adoption fee for Missy is $200. Each of our dogs is up to date on all shots, including rabies, spayed or neutered, microchipped, fecal tested for internal parasites, treated if necessary, tested for heartworm, treated if necessary, on heartworm preventative and we also take care of dentals or any other medical needs they may have.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy, a House Springs Japanese Chin dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Japanese Chin for sale in House Springs, or seeking a Japanese Chin dog from a breeder in House Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in House Springs already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a House Springs breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Japanese Chin breeders who help with Japanese Chin rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in House Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
