Misty – Silver Female,  5 years old, 78 lbs.

Hi, my name is Misty, you know, like the color of “mist”. I was found running around the fields in Visalia. I stayed in this pretty scary and noisy place called a shelter for a while, hoping my family would come for me and they didn’t. So, this great rescuer of dogs came and got me. I was very shut down and didn’t like that shelter place, so I was excited to get out. I have been at my foster moms’ house for a while now and I just love being able to sleep on a comfortable bed and play with my foster 4-legged brother. I do like it here, but I would really love a forever family to call my own. Maybe it could be you?

Since I have been with my foster mom, I have learned lots of things, I sleep all night on my bed and behave. I will go in the crate if you need me to, but I have learned that if I don’t bother with stuff, I can have the house to myself when mom must go to work or run errands. My canine foster brother is cool and taught me how to use the doggy door so I do my business outside, which is pretty awesome. It does take me a bit longer than some other dogs to feel at ease with new people. After all I have been through, it just takes me a while to trust that new people will be kind to me. But please be patient with me, I will get there, I promise! Now that I am comfortable in my foster home, I simply adore my foster family. My favorite place to be is under my foster mom’s desk at her feet when she works from home. Just seems to be the best and then I can nap while I am close to my foster mom which always makes me feel good. I am getting better and better every day at walking on a leash and other commands. Every time I do something good, I get a tasty treat, wow this is amazing! I love to learn new things and I’m ready to learn even more! Wanna go to training classes with me? Oh please, let’s go, it will be great fun and I will get lots of treats, hooray!

Misty is a very sweet and energetic girl looking for that perfect home. It does take her longer than most to become comfortable with new people, so she will need a forever family who can give her the time and space she needs to adjust to her new home. That patience will pay off though, as once Misty feels comfortable and trusts you, she blooms into such a devoted love bug! Misty is great with other dogs, but does not care for feline friends. She would also be best in a home without children or with older children/teens who can understand she will need several weeks to get adjusted to her new people and routine. Misty is a fun-loving sweetie who will fill your life with love, apply to make this gorgeous pup a member of your family!
