Update from Missy's foster Mom:
My name is Missy. I'm a 2 1/2 year old female, spayed, and up to date on all my vaccinations and my dental. I'm originally from Maryland, but now I'm living in Virginia with my foster mom and dad and 3 other pekes. My foster mom and dad love me a lot, but I am looking for a forever family where I am the only dog because, let's face it, I was born to be a princess.
I love to nestle on down pillows in my foster dad's upstairs office, or on the black ottoman in the family room. My foster mom says the black ottoman is off limits, but I get up on it anyway because a princess rests wherever she pleases, and secretly, foster mom thinks I'm cute!
You should know that I'm a "growler" talker. I rumble and growl when I want something because it's important for a princess to express her likes and dislikes. Here are my likes: curling up to sleep on my foster dad's lap and giving him kisses. Love-biting my foster mom's feet when I'm waiting for my dinner--they are so slow sometimes! Going for long walks at a leisurely pace (a princess does not rush). Playing with my stuffed toys and my ball. I also like going to bed early and sleeping late, especially on cold or rainy days. I enjoy having fun, but I prefer a quiet home where I'm the center of attention.
My dislikes: bothersome creatures like puppies, domineering dogs and nosy cats, and children and adults who don't respect my boundaries. And most especially I don't like having to share my foster mom and dad with my peke brothers and sisters.
I'm refined, sensitive, and intelligent. My fur is soft and silky and the color of caramel cream. And as you can see from my photos, there is an elegant curl in my tail when I'm happy. If you are patient and gentle and want a princess to love and adore, I'm your girl.
This is Missy, pink ears. :-) When we rescued her from a Maryland shelter, the tips of her ears were dyed pink. It has grown out now and she is a beautiful white/beige color. Missy is about 3 years old and about 11-12 pounds. We had to have her right eye removed, it gave her so much trouble, she doesn't miss it at all. She is doing just great !!!! If you are interested in a loving, sweet little girl, Missy is the one.
