Hello my name is Missy and I'm a 8 year old crossbreed. I've been at the rescue for some time as my previous owners gave me up soon after having a baby. I am rather nervous of new environments and new people so walks can be scary for me as it's a big scary world with scary people so I wear a muzzle to keep me and others. On walks I do actually walk nicely on lead and like to roll in grass or paddle in a stream. I'm friendly to other dogs even if they have a go at me but they are scary too sometimes so I don't want to live with another. The main reason I wear a muzzle is if anyone was to come up to me or my owner and try to pet me I get scared and protective so may bite though I promise it's not my fault. Oh did I mention I'm living with a foster family right now! They're great and understand my temperament with new people and will be working to introduce me to new people gradually and safely so I'll know they're not a threat and are in fact a friend. My foster mum says that my muzzle is nothing to be ashamed of and that I still love adorable no matter what. Once I get to know you I'm a complete sop and LOVE my belly being rubbed, snoozing in bed and a tug of war in the garden. Although I know my foster family like me they would love to see me go to a new permanent home who will continue to work with me to build up my trust in people and other things. When I first came to the house I was scared of the fridge, broom, tap, bird feeder and bin! How silly I was as I know that all of those things are completely harmless now, I just needed the time and encouragement to learn that. I would like a calm and quite household with no cats, dogs, children or lots of new people coming and going. Somewhere where there are some nice quite walks nearby would be nice. My basic training is very good and I know sit, down, paw, high five, leave and bed. As well as being house trained I'm also crate trained and would like to have one in my new home as it's a safe place for me to go. My foster has to leave me alone at times but there's never been any issues although I do like to sneak onto the sofa for a snooze, I can be left for 6 hours max. As I am not keen on new people it can put potential adopters off as they don't get to see my truly loving personality which I reserve for those I trust. Someone just needs to give me sometime and I will quickly become your friend as long as you listen to my fosters advice. All I need is a chance and you'll get a best mate, protector and a bit of a clown at the end of it. If your interested in meeting me then please get in touch and let us know a bit about yourself so we can then arrange a meeting. Any more questions don't hesitate to ask!
Yours truly Missy
.If you are interested in viewing a dog then please message or call to arrange a day to come along to the rescue. If you're not sure which dog you would like to see then just ask, tell us what you're looking for eg. If you have another dog, age of children (we do not have a minimum age), activity requirements (active, lazy), how long the dog will be left alone (we do ask that if it is anymore than 6-7 hours then someone must come in between to check on the dog and let them out and give them some company. Just let us know what your lifestyle is and we will tell you which dogs may be suited to you.
.After a meet up with Jan and the dog at the rescue and if you decide that you would like to adopt and Jan agrees then you will arrange a day for Jan to come round for a home check/ deliver the dog to you. You don't need to decide on the day and can of course have a think about it as it's not a decision to rush.
. If there are many people interested in a dog then it is NOT first come first served. We will meet as many people as possible and then choose which would be best for the dog so please do not be disheartened if this is the situation

. ongoing support is always provided if needed
