My story



Hi my name is Merry Mistlepaws (aka Myiah). I have a Christmas name because I was adopted as a puppy last Christmas. However, what I thought was my fur-ever home was not. But it wasn't any fault of mine. My adopter just couldn't keep me.


I’m almost 2 years old and I’m a juicy nugget, weighing in at over 70 pounds. I live in a foster home with a sweet old lady and a chiweenie dog, so don’t let my size scare you off. That said, I’m a formidable presence at the door when a stranger knocks! Now you know why the UPS man has brown pants!


The reality is that I’m afraid, and so I bark and act scary to keep strangers away. My initial scariness has kept most adopters away, unfortunately. My perfect home would be one with my people, where there aren’t new people coming in and out of the house. I can go out walking on the leash, but I’d prefer a home where I could just go out and lounge in my fenced backyard. And while I love my chiweenie foster brother, I am picky about my dog friends mostly because I’m a scaredy cat in my heart and head.
