Missy is a young adult Shetland Sheepdog Cocker Spaniel mix who was abandoned in the back yard of her former owner's home after they moved away. After 2 days she dug out of the padlocked fence and was running loose in the neighborhood. A neighbor was able to get her on a leash and bring her home. Missy rescuer already has a full house of rescued dogs so Missy is looking for a new permanent home and family to call her own.
Missy would do well in a home with an active owner, children or other dogs to play with. She is loving and sweet. She wants to be with her human and seems very bright and energetic. She is fully house broken, knows the commands "sit" and "shake". She is also a good watch dog. She barks when she sees anyone approaching the house.
Missy likes to swim and retrieve. She also likes belly rubs, treats and to run and play with other dogs. Missy is a playful dog, loves the water and fetch. She is a good swimmer. She may also have the potential to become a Frisbee dog.
You can tell that Missy is just a sweet, loyal dog that wants to be around and please her human. She adapted quickly from her traumatic rescue to meeting 4 other dogs immediately. She would make a great companion for just about anyone as long as they could at least throw a tennis ball - Note from your webmaster – Missy told me that she’d like one of these for Christmas! http://www.goifetch.com
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Missy on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give her the home she deserves. Missy will reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring her into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Missy are a good match for each other.
DogsOnly adoption fee ranges from $100 - $150 depending on the dog and helps to reimburse our expenses for all of the necessary vet care that we have provided to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions, rabies, micro-chipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella, grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and monthly preventative for all ages while in foster care, collar and 50% of basic training classes. The adoption fee does not reimburse for all our expenses and covers only a portion of most expenses involved in rehabilitating our rescues and returning them to health. Please keep this in mind when you are adopting a dog.
Our available rescues can be met in person at our weekly adoption showing at the West Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway, across from Target and Home Depot. This is in the same strip mall as Old Navy and Shoe Carnival. Our showing hours are from 1-4 every Saturday except major holiday weekends.
Email contact is email@example.com Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs are available for a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process (local adoptions only). This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies under the age of 6 months are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. All of our foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs are euthanized.
IMPORTANT - Please call Petco at 501 219 9907 on Saturday between 1:00 and 4:00 PM only or email firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE coming to visit Missy to make sure that she is still available for adoption.
