Hi! My name is Missy. My former owners relinquished me to the pound because I was 9 years old, overweight, and I walked funny. My foster mom came to get me the same day. I've lost 17 pounds, thanks to green beans, healthy food and thyroid medicine. I am approximately 9-10 years old, but my foster mom says that I look much younger. I am looking for a furever family to call my own. I am a sweet, quiet senior with a bad hip. I love to snuggle with my foster mom and dad. I am shy with new people, but I warm up quickly. I love to go on walks. I do not pull and if I sniff grass too long just ask me to come and I will. I am not kid tested. I am fine with my indoor feline friends, even when they insist on rubbing against me and shaking their tails in my face. Outside cats are a different story. My foster mom and dad love me a lot and wanted to keep me, but I have a personality conflict with their mixed breed dog, who is a diva, but I do fine with the border collie who lives here. My foster mom thinks the pain in my hip causes me to be grumpy with the diva dog. I can stay in a crate, but when my foster mom found out that I was having hip pain from a botched surgery, she decided not to crate me for extended time so I can move around and avoid getting painfully stiff. I take medicine to help me with the pain. I am scared of storms, but not the garbage truck. When I hear the truck I love to run to the fence barking at that smelly old truck. I greet my people in the morning with a rousing "rooooo" and my foster dad says I have a funny little run as I go to my food bowl. I can be pushy about getting my fair share of petting and if you ignore me and gently say "no", I will go on my way. I must be the first dog out and in the door when we go for walks. I was disciplined harshly in my former home whenever I got an upset tummy in the house, so please speak gently and calmly if that ever happens and I will not hide or wince. I will be your love bug and your best friend.
