Facts about Misty

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Akita Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Misty is a four year old lab/akita mix. She is spayed, micro chipped and up to date with her shots. She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on a leash.

Misty loves people including kids. She would do better with older children because she could knock over smaller ones in her enthusiasm without meaning any harm. Misty would do best as an only dog, or with a male companion her own size. She is an alpha personality, so after a while, she tends to get bossy and picky with other females and small dogs.

Misty is an active dog who needs daily exercise or a large yard to explore. She has not been tested with cats.

If you would like to meet Misty, please contact Painted Paws for Veterans. She is available for public adoption. That means that you do not need to be a Veteran to adopt her.

About Painted Paws for Veterans

About Our Rescue Group...

Painted Paws for Veterans is a Colorado 501(c)(3) Non-Profit who specializes in connecting veterans, and veteran families, to dogs rescued from kill shelters in order to provide emotional support and family companionship.

Since there are so many dogs in shelters looking for a new forever home, we often have more dogs than vets. Any dogs not claimed by a veteran are then offered for open adoption to the public. The adoption fees taken in through community adoptions are then used to help fund our veteran programs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visitations on the ranch are by appointment only. We are on winter hours now, so appointments are available between noon and 3 pm on Wednesdays through Saturdays. Please email us if you are interested in meeting one of our dogs or puppies.

We are an outdoor facility. All visitations are conducted in fenced yards around the property. If weather conditions are too bad for our canines, we may ask you to reschedule to another time.

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters are required to fill out an application of interest/adoption. This application does not obligate you to adopt one of our dogs. Nor does it guarantee that you will be able to adopt. It just gives us the information we need to help you make the best match with our available dogs.

Our adoption fees are $300. This includes a veterinary exam, their spay/neuter, microchip, all age approximate vaccinations and dental for the older dogs.

All adoptions are subject to a home check. We are not coming to judge you or your home. We just want to make sure that your home is a safe environment for the dog.
