Misty is being fostered in Alamogordo NM.
Misty is a young dog who has already been subjected to having puppies. She is currently nursing her 10, 3 week old babies. Her babies were born in a shelter after animal control removed her and 30 other dogs from an unfortunate housing situation. Because of her difficult time the last few weeks, she is wary of people and protective of her puppies. When she is not around her puppies though, she is a friendly, animated dog. She loves other dogs and with another confident dog around is learning to trust people. She will need a patient, loving family to guide her down the right path.
