Hi! I'm Missy. I'm a 7 year old Rat Terrier mix female who is looking for a human to let me warm their lap and their heart. I'm pretty petite weighing in around 15 lbs. I'm looking for my perfect match, someone who will take me on short walks (I'm tiny so long walks tire me out, unless you carry me) roll the ball to me, and give me loving touches (especially on my chest and belly). I get along with school age kids and older and look forward to forming bonds with my new family. Although I may pick one human as my Alpha, I don't discriminate against love and gently petting from anyone. I currently reside with another dog and we get along pretty well. I like my personal space and respect the personal space of other dogs in the home. I will play with the other dogs outside, but I'm concerned larger dogs might squish me, so I keep my distance. I have a unique look to in that I have one ear that stands up and the other is folded over. If you are looking for a small dog who will sit in your lap and give you unconditional love then I'm the one for you!
