Meet Missy (new name to come)! This sweet girl is Bonnie Blue Rescue’s newest addition!

My parents actually heard about Missy when they were contacted by a local vet, saying that Missy needed a new home. The story is a little complicated, but here’s what we’ve heard about her story so far. …Missy was rescued by an elderly woman (we’ll call the woman Grace) and lived with her for almost a year before Grace was no longer able to care for her. Missy was sent to the local animal shelter in hopes of being adopted by a great family. Unfortunately, in rural southwest Virginia,  adoption rates at the local shelters tend to be extremely low. Missy stayed in the shelter until her time was up – and at the last-minute was rescued by a neighbor of Grace’s. That kind neighbor took Missy to our local vet and convinced them to allow her to stay until she could be rehomed. We can’t thank that good Samaritan enough! Thanks to this gentlemen, sweet Missy is alive and kickin’ today. (Below is  a photo in the car ride home from the vet’s!)

My mom picked up Missy from the vet clinic earlier this week – and has raved about her all week long. Missy is approximately 1 year old and is likely a Catahoula Leopard/Fox Hound mix.  She has absolutely striking baby blues.

Missy is up to date on vaccines, spayed, microchipped and current on flea/tick/heartworm preventative.

Missy seems to love everyone she meets. She enjoys romping and playing with the other pups at my parent’s home – but also will curl up on a dog bed and snooze the afternoon away. She learns the rules/boundaries around the house easily and is eager to please. This little girl seems to LOVE children – so would likely do quite well in a home with kids.

Missy is heading to GA this weekend to meet her new foster parents, Melissa & Tyler. Check back for more updates on how this sweet girl is doing.

One Response to “Missy”


    Hello, woof-

    Does Missy desire the company of a cat “meow type” as well? or was she ever cat tested?
    I lost my beloved Catahoula this past September – she was a TDI dog. We do have another “Cat” as well – red mottled – would she make a good therapy dog? what I do is all volunteer work in my spare time-nursing homes -pysh wards,children’s cancer ward,sometimes jails and lets not leave out the VA hospital.
