'Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter'

(formerly Marquette County Humane Society)

Missy is a sweet gal who can be quite silly around her people pals. She takes a little time to get to know you but once she does, she bonds deeply. She longs for a calm home where she can chill out and relax; one where she can warm up slowly and on her own time. She loves her walks and enjoys being out sniffing the air and trotting along by your side. She recently had ACL surgery on one leg so she is slowly getting her strength back.
Missy is both independent and calm. Excellent with her potty habits too and well mannered in the home. If you are the sort who doesn't love a ruckus, but values a reserved, quiet dog, Missy may just be your pal! She's ready for her own loving home. We know this special gal will be someone's ideal new friend!
