Misty is a sweet and loving 2 year-old Boston Terrier mix female who looks to have had a rough life but thanks to a good Samaritan, her luck has changed and she now has a bright future ahead of her. She was a stray who was seen repeatedly running along a rural road with a Chihuahua. After seeing the dogs for several days, a passerby followed them to a home and asked the homeowner if those were his dogs. He said the Chihuahua was his but that Misty was not, although she had taken up temporary residence on his property after giving birth to 4 puppies. The good Samaritan who also happened to be a volunteer at the local shelter said she would be happy to take Misty and her pups and find a rescue for them. The man said she could have Misty but that he was “keeping” the pups—most likely because he thought he could sell them. Although the good Samaritan hated to leave the weaned pups behind, she felt it was best to get Misty out of that situation before she became pregnant again. After a brief stay at the shelter, a very shy and apprehensive Misty made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could get lots of TLC while she searched for a permanent home. Misty has really begun to relax and let her guard down in her foster home. She now always has a bright smile and wagging tail for her foster mom. It’s going to be a real pleasure for her new family to watch this girl blossom into the confident dog she’ll surely become once she knows she’s home for good. Misty has been fine with all other dogs she’s met so might enjoy having a canine role model in her new home. She has excellent crate manners so should be able to pick up the housetraining rules quickly in her new home. Misty was adopted for two weeks but recently returned as she proved to be too playful for the two senior dogs in her adoptive home. Once she feels comfortable in her new surroundings, her inner puppy definitely emerges! Misty weighs about 17 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Misty. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
