Life is good and life is happy! My name is Missy and that is my motto. The day my life changed was the day I was left on the side of the road. I didn't quite know what to do, but I knew I had to stay put to protect my family. I was a new momma and my former people just left me and my babies on the side of the road. When my rescuers found me and pulled up to see if I was OK, they saw me sitting next to a box. When they opened the box, they found my four puppies inside. It was just before Christmas and very, very cold but I would not leave my babies. No way, I am a loyal girl and would not leave the kids alone. So, the nice people picked us up and took us to a shelter where they named me Mrs. Paws. Three of my babies were adopted right away but my one girl, Noel, was with me through the holidays just waiting for a miracle. Good things happened again when we came to Finding Shelter. We were saved and able to be saved together! Now I am living in a foster home and have a cozy bed and cozy couch and no worries in the world. It is a nice change to be babied and loved. I can't wait until my forever family finds me. I promise to be the very best girl and your very best friend.
