MISSY – 20801
Safe - 2-22-2018 Manhattan Rescue: East Coast Herding-Dog Organization Rescue Inc. Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Missy. My animal id is #20801. I am a female black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 6 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 15-Feb-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal health – other.
**History of Seizures – Needs Placement ASAP**
Missy is at risk for medical reasons. Missy has a reported history of having seizures, which were never treated by her previous owner. We have been treating her with Keppra since arrival at the care center, and have not witnessed any seizures. However, we suggest that this be further explored following placement. Behaviorally, we suggest that Missy would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Gentle Missy is the image of the man(woman)’s best friend. Sweet and affectionate(while playful), Missy slept with her owner and shared her meals with her. She was so good that she lived in peace with the house cat. Still, Missy is with us as her master could not deal with her seizures(not yet observed at the care center) left untreated. Our medical staff is of course looking into the matter. Missy is a very pretty gal, well groomed and so foxy looking with her long nose and pointy ears. I call her Inspector Missy as she does a lot of sniffing, checking every nook and cranny. She is still trying to find her place among new people and new walls. She is a good walker, likely house trained , fine with the noises of the street and civil to all dogs met. Missy does not like my treats but as I walked her later on that day, I brought rotisserie chicken with me. She gulped it down in no time and her tail was wagging like a helix in full speed. We all have our soft spot. Missy is a lovely middle aged gal, a family dog, gentle, well mannered and affectionate.She would love to be your loyal four legged best friend and show once again what a good girl she is. Missy is at the Manhattan Care Center.
