Meet Missy - COURTESY LISTING, a New Hope Cattle Dog Available For Adoption




Hi there! I am Missy, a 5 yo Heeler. I came into rescue after my elderly daddy passed away. I am a sweet little girl, who is the perfect size at 40lbs. I love to walk & do 5 miles a day with my foster mom & brothers. This is my 3rd home in 5 years so I do have a bit of a possessive streak. I like to get all of the love & affection, can you blame me? I've been abandoned twice already! I am living with 2 older males & as long as my foster parents make sure I know my boundaries, I am happy to have brothers. The rescue will help with training so that we have the tools to work on my boundaries! I like to watch the squirrels & could stay outside all day just waiting for one of them to fall in our yard, lol. I am trusted with free roam inside, I promise not to chew your shoes! I am crate trained & house broken. The vets say that I have severe liver disease, but I am a happy girl & no one thinks it's true! But, the tests have been done & show that my Cirrhosis & Hepatitis is quite severe & I am on a liver flushing medication & a couple of other supplements. My liver flush meds will be complete in 3 months. At that time, I will get another live biopsy to see if the Chelation helped & then figure out what we will do from there. The rescue is committed to caring for me through all of these tests & surgeries. Seriously though, you would not know that I am sick at all! The rescue has discussed sponsoring my monthly Denamarin meds that support my liver for the rest of my life. Go to if you are interested in Missy!
