My sweet Melissa. What a special girl. There are dogs and then there are once-in-a-lifetime dogs Melissa is a once-in-a-lifetime dog. Melissa is a beautiful, very respectful, well mannered girl who is knows some basic commands and is equally happy being a running partner or taking a nice leisurely stroll around the neighborhood. Melissa is a little shy and reserved when she meets someone new, but once she opens up and lets you into her inner circle, it is an almost magical feeling. This easy-going girl is between 3-4 years old and is a solid, muscular 60-65lbs. Melissa is both house and crate trained, but she is equally good in or out of her crate. And she loves to lay on her bed or sleep in yours, if you let her. She has a very short, very soft, silky white fur coat that everyone loves to stroke. Her breed is a best guess mix of American Bulldog and Staffordshire Terrier, and while that is a guess, we can definitely confirm she is 100% sweet, loveable girl. And Melissa is not only beautiful, she is also low-maintenance and gives the sweetest kisses. She does prefer to select her own doggie friends, but who wouldn’t? But at the end of the day, she loves nothing more than cuddling with her people and giving those sweet, little kisses. And is it just coincidence that in Greek Melissa means “honey bee?” I think in the song, “You’ll be my honeysuckle, and I’ll be your honey bee.” It may be the honey making her kisses so sweet! Does Melissa sound like a match for you? Then fill out an application and come to meet her. An Adoption Application for this dog can be found at and can be submitted online.
