Background Story:

3 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:

We have been working on Missy’s manners when she’s greeting people entering the cottage while she has house time. She’s way too exuberant! So, she’s learning to calm down in the kitchen before greeting people, and eventually will learn to go to a mat or place marker while she calms down and finds her inner zen. She’s a quick study and has caught on quickly!

Adoption Info:

We are happy to add Missy to our adoptables!! She has been living at the Our Companions Sanctuary now for almost 6 months and she is now ready for her own home! A favorite of our volunteers, she was voted as the 2021 Class Clown and runner up for the Life of the Paw'ty dog!
She is the cutest black and white pit bull but then we are a bit biased! When she first came to us from a local animal shelter she was just learning to leash walk, to be polite when greeting people. She is still a bit of a work in progress on both of those but she is super smart and is catching on fast! She simply gets so excited to meet new people!
Some of her favorite things are running in one of the play yards-be careful and protect your knees as she is a bit of a bull in a china shop when she gets the zoomies, 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! She does however take treats very gently so we know she has a soft side too!
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, active teens or adults, a family that is well versed in pit bull ways, a 5' fence with a yard to run it! She soooo enjoys running in her yard!
Stats: 3 yo, 50 lbs, crate trained.
