Misti is a 14-month-old, 75 pound Shepherd/Dane mix with possibly a bit of Mastiff in her. Misti came to us through a rescue ranch that told us she had been the youngest, smallest, and the only female in the litter. Generally, she is an incredibly loving, sweet and energetic pup.
There has never been any indication that she was in altercations with other dogs or people. So it is almost a curious mystery as to why Misti seems to be so timid and shy for the first day or two when she meets a new person. Once the bond is formed, of course, there is nothing that can stop her from wanting to be with that person as closely as possible and for as many hours of the day.
It is for these, and a few other reasons, that it is felt that Misti just needs to be found by that special someone who knows what it is like to let someone past your safety exterior and into your heart. While she would be terrific with children, a family, and even other dogs, we really hope Misti is able to be taken to her forever home by someone who really wants to form a one-on-one bond with a pup and experience all of the loving support a best friend can give.
