Facts about Missy

  • Sex: Female

Walks Nicely On A Leash. Misty loves going for walks.
Knows Basic Commands: Some
Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High): Moderate
**Special Needs: Missy has arthritis in her neck, and may also have other pain issues that make her YELP suddenly and loudly. Specialists have seen her, but the cause of the yelping remains a mystery. She loves people, but may not tolerate prolonged petting or handling.

Arrival story: Missy came from a rural shelter where there was little chance that she would get adopted.

Approximate age / weight: 10 years young and 11 lbs.


Personality: What a friendly little cutie! We think that Missy is a Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix. Missy is good with people, kids, and other dogs and may be happiest if she is in a home with another small dog friend. She barks at dogs, especially large dogs, but gets along with them after a proper introduction. She is playful with small dogs. Missy is crate-trained and house-trained (but may have occasional accidents). She is content in her crate while no one is home but otherwise prefers to be out and about.

Missy has had a dental with 16 rotten teeth removed, had her cherry eye corrected and cysts on her ovaries removed with her spay surgery. She also had some benign mammary tumors removed.

Forever home: Our lively little Missy would be perfect for an experienced dog owner looking to care for a special needs dog. Because we don't know the cause of Missy's yelping, we don't know if she will get better, worse or stay the same, so there is a possibility of future medical issues and expenses. She would enjoy living with a small canine pal or a home where she is not left alone for long hours

About Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group. Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized or sold to research from area and rural kill shelters. We are supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show every Saturday from 12-3 p.m. (please see our website for exact location details). We often have other special events that are listed on our website, as well. Potential adopters can also schedule meetings with the individual dog's foster parent since all of our dogs are in fosters homes and we do not own a shelter.

Our Adoption Process...

We utilize an application process because we have worked hard at nurturing and working with the animals in our care. In order to ensure that these formerly abandoned, neglected and abused animals never find themselves in the shelter/rescue system again, we screen applicants so that the applicant is matched to an animal that is suited to the applicant's lifestyle.

It is our job at Waggin’ Tails not only to find new homes for our animals but to ensure these animals never have an opportunity to breed again. All of Waggin’ Tails dogs will be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption unless the dog is not of age and/or the dog has a medical condition that would prohibit sterilization at the time of adoption. Dogs under 6 months of age and dogs that cannot be sterlilized due to a medical condition will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract which means the adopter must agree to have the dog sterilized by a specified date.


Adoption Fees
Adult Dogs: $225
Small Breed Dogs: $275
Senior Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months): $250 + $50 refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit

What does the adoption fee Include?
The adoption fees above cover all age-appropriate vaccines; heartworm/fecal test; spay/neuter (unless otherwise stated); and microchipping. When necessary, the dogs have blood panels, dentals, and professional grooming as well. In other words, we do everything necessary for the dog when they come into our care.
