Background Story:

Five year old Missy has come to the Sanctuary from Southington Animal Control. She had been adopted out but then returned to them. They contacted Our Companions after it was decided that they would only release her to a rescue. Missy was part of our Adopt a Shelter program prior to Covid-19 stopping most of the activity in that program, and she was a star student! We are excited to have her join us so that we can get to know her all over again.

Current Status:

Missy is certainly volunteer favorite at our Sanctuary! She’s been doing more work with other dogs—we are hoping that she would like to socialize with other dogs, but we can’t be sure because she gets too excited when she sees dogs when out walking. We are pairing her on walks with other dogs first so that she can get to know them before they’re in a play yard together. Fingers crossed!

Adoption Info:

Missy is the life of the party! This 5 year old, 50lb Pitty is super smart, loves getting the zoomies, and simple loves having fun! Missy enjoys learning new things, like walking with a loose leash and greeting people politely (she gets very excited meeting new people!), and would appreciate someone who could continue her training in a home!

Some of her favorite things are running in one of the play yards- she can be a bit of a bull in a china shop when she gets the zoomies and forgets just how big she is! After a good work out, she is happy to come back in, rest up in her crate, or cuddle on the couch. Like any self respecting pit, she is a hard chewer so tough toys are her fave, however she take treats very gently and loves couch snuggles with her friends!

She does have some specific requests for her new home- she'd like a single family home (no apartments or condos), be the only animal, adults only, a family that is well versed in pit bull ways, and a 5ft fence with a yard to run it! She would also appreciate someone to help her slowly transition to her new home and family!
