About Missy
Missy is a sweet and very devoted girl with big brown eyes that show you how she feels. She is cautious in getting to know women and seems to trust men more. Now that she has settled into her foster home, she always wants to be where the people are. She may be an older dog but can still be playful and loves to be petted. She follows her foster mom all through the house - shes on the couch or the floor nearby if its tv time, on the office futon during work and sleeps very still on the bed with the people at night. (Or at nap time!) She needs to lose some weight but will sit or stand on her back legs for a treat. Missy gets along with other dogs but can be startled when she is sleeping if another dog gets too close. She doesnt bark a lot but will chime in when the rest of the pack gets going. She goes to the door when she needs to go potty and comes right back in when she is finished. She stays in her crate when the family leaves the house even with the door open. She would be a great dog for someone who is home during the day as she would be much happier if she didnt have to spend a lot of time alone.
