|Personality:|| Average Energy, Very Submissive |
|Health:|| Spayed, Vaccinations Current | Poor Misty has had the most terrible life so far, and we are hoping someone out there is ready to help change her future. She is only a year and half or so old, and we dont know all of her history, but even what little we know for sure makes us pray with all our hearts that Misty is adopted soon, and begins to have the chance to know what safety and love feel like. Underhound rescued Misty from a high kill shelter in the south not long before the holidays. She was very scared at the shelter, and due to be killed as the shelter was full. A foster was coming from across the state to pick her up, but she was to spend one night at a boarding ... (Read More)kennel in the meantime, to get her safely out of the shelter in time. That night, her first out of the shelter, she went into labor! She was so thin, no one had realized she was pregnant. She gave birth to a gorgeous litter, however, despite intensive care and no expense being spared, each one slowly passed away over the course of the next week, due to being born to a mother in such terrible condition and under so much stress. Mistletoe was anemic due to being so full of worms, including the dreaded heartworm, which is not easy to treat. We are very happy to say she has now made it through the months long treatment process, and will soon come to New England to finally have her chance at the good life. She is still scared, and learning how to trust humans and to live in this world, after all she has endured, but her sweet gentle spirit shines through all the time. Mistletoe weighs around 40 lbs. We are just guessing about her breed. The vet thinks she is a true mix, likely of multiple breeds. There is nothing that would make the humans of Underhound happier than Misty having a home waiting for her when she arrives. Somewhere peaceful, without too much commotion, with a happy confident doggie friend or more, to help her feel safe, and most of all, a calm, loving, patient human, who will embrace the journey of helping her learn to not be so scared. We promise the love she will give will pay you back many times over. If you think you might be that person, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an application to adopt Mistletoe. She is spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm free, and ready to begin her bright future. (Less) Adoption Fee: 375 Animal Location:
