Hi, I'm Missy
Pointer Mix | Adult | Female | Medium
Prepare to have Missy steal your heart! She is very affectionate, obedient, and adorable. She especially enjoys chasing thrown tennis balls, and will beg you to play ball all day long. She absolutely must have a fenced yard in which to run off all that energy in short bursts. Missy will want to sleep with you, either in your bed, or on her bed at the foot of yours. Not suitable to be left alone all day or in a crate—she needs companionship and affection, and will kiss you endlessly in reward. Missy has completed four surgeries to repair her “cherry eyes”, and because one of the third eyelids has been removed, she will likely need daily (inexpensive) eye drops later on to prevent dry eye complications. If you want a 24/7 companion, and you have a fenced yard, Missy could be your girl.
