A volunteer writes: Missy the gentle giant is a sweet, funny, and beautiful lady with quite a bit of personality! When I first approached her cage to take her for a walk, she didn’t seem too interested (she was more into napping on her bed). I tried giving her a treat– she took it, stared at me for a few seconds without chewing, then spit it out. Rejected! 🙂 Once I put her leash on, Missy was ready to rock and roll. She’s big, but she’s slow, and doesn’t pull on the leash at all. Missy seems to be housetrained and walks easily on a leash– although once she decides what direction she wants to go in, she doesn’t hesitate to stop in her tracks and refuse to move until you go the way she wants! This is a girl after my own heart– one who’s used to getting what she wants! Although Missy can be a bit stubborn, it only takes some baby talk and scratches behind the ears to get her moving again (or maybe a dog she’s interested to follow). Missy is a charming, unique, and big baby girl– come and see her at the Brooklyn ACC today!
