Animal Profile


Missy

Hello, my name is Missy. My animal id is #15218. I am a desexed female tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 5 months 2 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a returns on 15-May-2018.

Reserved

Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Missy is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs. Missy has been friendly and easy to handle since she has been here.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes: It's always nice to see a familiar face, though sometimes also bittersweet. Such is the case with 3.5 year-old Missy whose sweet face I first saw in December. But really who could forget a face like that? More of a light that could never not shine. And though I knew Missy only through her photos, her palpable happiness stayed with me. A cheerful cherub, a chunky monkey, a girl who'd make anyone smile. The Missy I meet in May in Manhattan is still beautiful that is for sure. And though no longer a chunky monkey, now thin, her cinnamon coat slightly frayed, she is gentle and calm, greeting me with a low and slow wag, and hops easily down from her kennel. We head out to the park and Missy trots just ahead, head down, eyes focused, ready for what the day brings. And when we find a park bench and settle in for sun and breeze, Missy sits at my feet and stares straight to the sky, missing the bustle around her. She is happy to sit with me, leaning into pets and scratches. And when I find the right spot at the base of her tail even sets her back toes to tapping. But despite the sun and the breeze, the pets and the scratches, Missy's eyes never move far from the distance. And as long as I look and as hard as I try, I'm not able to see her smile. We stay there a while, and I think back to those photos, back to that grin that was more than contagious. And suddenly, with her back toes tapping, Missy turns her head 'round towards me. And when the light hits her eyes I see it live and in person. A light that could never not shine. Missy would do best with an experienced family who'll give her the time, dedication, and care she deserves, one who'll ensure she never loses her smile. And while I'd always welcome the sight of such a gorgeous, familiar face, I'd be happiest to see it again through cheery photos. And somehow I know I'll be smiling. Missy is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
