Missy's Story...
Hi, my name is Missy. I am a gorgeous feist mix of approximately two years old. I came from Jackson County, AL where I was found by a Scottsboro Animal Control officer. I stayed at the animal control office for a few weeks being boarded with other dogs like me. Unfortunately, I was too shy, timid and nervous in the kennel that I would not come to meet people that may have wanted to adopt me. My fear was so great and I just couldn't come forward to be seen and known. So, on the day before I was supposed to be euthanized, a lady from Friends of Rescue noticed me and got me to come to her by being patient and sweet. I responded with my tail between my legs and I slowly went to her. There was something so nice about her I just couldn't help myself.

Before I knew it, she sent out a call to all of the available fosters for this organization called Friends of Rescue. The next day, I was surprised to see a guy with the animal control officer standing at my kennel. I thought, oh, it must be time to say goodbye to the world. But, he was talking sweet to me, trying desperately to get me to come to him. I had given up and just didn't have it in me to be disappointed again by these two legged things. What I didn't know, was that the kind lady from the day before sent this guy. He tried and tried to get me to come to him and I remained too scared. So, he just picked me up, walked to an office, signed a paper and we were in a truck.

We must have got where we were going because the truck stopped, we got out and we walked to a house I did not know.... I walked slowly to the door... inside were two other dogs. All of the sudden I had new friends - I love new friends.

After a day or so, I got shots and spayed and after a little recovery time I began to settle in to my new home. I began playing with my new toys, eating as much as I could get and started playing with my new friends. My foster family has shown me what love is and I have came out of my shell.

I think all I needed was love and to be wanted. I get along great with my new friends, I am doing really well on my potty training and I am told that I have a ton of energy and am happy. Is this what happy is? I think so.. You see, I am not what I once was.. I am full of life, energy and am a great companion. I love my foster family, especially my foster brother. He and I play till he gets enough of me, then I go to my toys and play with them. I love to run, jump around in the air and during the day, I get to nap so I can do it all again as soon as I wake up.

I sleep in my crate at night and would like for it to be in the same room you are sleeping. That way, I can be comfortable knowing you are close by. I am a bit anxious if you leave but will settle down after a few minutes. I may not be as demure as some, but I am working on it. My foster family tells me it will come with age and reminders. Being just a year old, I still need to be corrected if something I do upsets you. But, I will tell you, you have to be nice and be consistent about it. That way, I will not become fearful and will understand what you are telling me and I will learn. I am very smart.

I am a work in progress. I still have some things that I am working on. I tend to bark and get anxious around new people when I am outside. I have been told that my anxiety is because of how I lived before. I'm not sure about that, but I do know that I am high energy, love exercise and need a ton of love – all things I get now and will need in the future too.

I'm looking for my forever home and I would make a great pal. If you are interested in meeting me, I would love the opportunity. I am good with kids ages 8+ and warm up to almost everyone after a bit of time. I love having other dogs around me but it may take a little time for me to get to know them. I am spayed, current on shots, tested negative for heart worms, microchipped, dewormed, and current on trifexis. I am located in Huntsville, AL, but I'm available for adoption in your area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy, a Knoxville Feist/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Feist/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Knoxville, or seeking a Feist/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Knoxville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Knoxville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Feist/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Feist/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxville paves the way for another one to be saved.
