    Misty 4's Story . . .

    Some dogs find ways to amuse themselves with or without help from their two-legged friends.  In Misty’s case, the two-legged friend is a bird!  This beautiful girl has discovered if she creeps up on a bird very silently and carefully, eventually the bird will take flight; then she can chase as it takes off and even leap in the air as if to catch that foolish flying feathered friend; she hasn’t yet succeeded!  This seems like a game to her, and she enjoys the chase.  Go for it, Misty!!!
     
    Misty continues to enjoy her foster home this summer although she still becomes a bit anxious when she is left alone and sometimes dribbles a bit.  The dribbling may be caused by her drinking pattern and/or her anxiety.   Her foster mom and her vet are working on these issues so this lovely lady can be the best she can be.
     
    In her own time Misty will be looking for a home in which a family member is home much of the time and can give her walks, snuggles and friendly bird company.  Labor Day is coming followed by all the good times that fall brings.  Wouldn’t you like to share them with this very special young lady?

    Original:
    “A fan of good exercise, this young lady enjoys a three-four mile walk each day.”

    When Misty’s elderly Florida owners passed away and their daughter with two dogs, two cats and some birds could not handle another dog, Misty found her way to MAESSR.
     
    This black and white beauty is housetrained although she does not have a signal to go out.  A perfect house guest, she does know the creature comforts of life and likes to be on the furniture and to sleep in bed with her person.  Misty knows “sit” to have her leash attached and does then walk nicely.  A fan of good exercise, this young lady enjoys a three-four mile walk each day.
     
    Miss M. interacts well with other dogs and is always friendly to those tall two-legged critters.  She does not seek food or toys.  While she does not care for riding in a car or being groomed, she tolerates both activities.
     
    In her original home, Misty was never without her people and, since losing them, fusses when she is left alone even if she has another canine companion.  Her foster family is helping her overcome this separation anxiety.
     
    This lovely girl is quite contented when her person is nearby and she knows the next outing is coming soon.  She would like a home in which her folks are home most of the time to ease her anxiety.  Are you looking for a walking companion who will curl up next to you when you’re ready to be at home and rest?  Misty is just the girl for you!
