Meet Mississippi (Missy for short). This adorable little gal is about 7
weeks old, 8 pounds and looking for love. Why isn't she still with her Mom and
littermates at this age? Well, she and her family were victims of Hurricane
Katrina. Missy's Mom tried to take care of her little family but once her
milk dried up from lack of food and water, her pups became very sick.
Luckily they were found and Missy and her Mom recovered - the others were
not so lucky. Missy was in vet care in Mississippi when a BP&SBR volunteer
ran across her. She flew back to NY and is now ready to fly into your
We have no idea what breeds Missy is (but her Mom looked like a medium sized Shepard mix). Our vet has estimated that she will top out under 50 pounds. But this is just a guess! We are looking for an adopter who will love her no matter how big or small she is! Missy is a very smart little girl who
seldom makes "mistakes" in the house. She has a very healthy appetite and
loves to play with her foster sisters and brothers. At this age, sleeping
is still a major priority in her life.
Missy is waiting for you... apply if you think you can offer her the safe and loving environment she deserves!
Mississippi has been ADOPTED!
