A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Oh my goodness, this sweet little cow dog! If her spotted ears and wiggly body weren’t enough to convince me, Missy has a wonderful personality to match. Missy sat patiently in her kennel today, watching me without a single bark (and with lots of tail wags) every time I walked by her and walked other dogs, until it was finally her turn. Super easy to walk on the leash, Missy doesn’t pull even the tiniest bit, and walks with a spring in her step that you can’t help but smile at. Stopping often to look back at me on our walk, Missy enjoys scratches on the back (and will do the most adorable little spin and wiggle to get more!), and loved to climb up and cuddle whenever we took a break. If you’re lucky, she’ll even try to lick your face. Missy seems to be house trained, and would be a fantastic dog for someone who’s looking for a dog whose wild puppy days are over, but still has lots of love to give and fun days ahead of her. Come and meet Missy at the Brooklyn ACC today.
