Meet Melissa

**If you are interested in Melissa, please fill out an adoption application on our website:**

Meet Melissa (known as Missy to her foster family), a beautiful 1-year old girl who recently came to us from Turkey. This poor girl had been living chained to a tree when our rescuer found her. Thankfully that awful life is behind her, and she is living the good life now. Our best guess is she is golden retriever/great pyrenees mix. At 52 lbs she is golden sized but has the curly tail and coat of a pyrenees. One thing is for sure…she is 100% beautiful!
Missy is a happy, well-adjusted puppy with a golden personality. She can be a tad bit shy when meeting new people initially, but very quickly warms up and wants all the loving and attention she can get. She is happy to give you her belly for rubs and likes to be with her people. One of her favorite things is cuddling on her foster dad’s lap! She takes treats gently and has been good with older children (6+ years old).
Missy enjoys her walks and is learning not to pull on leash with the help of a harness. She gets very excited when she sees other dogs and wants to meet them and play. Her foster family is working with her to get her to focus on the walk and not other dogs. She is getting 4-5 miles of walking each day, and her forever family should plan on continuing that level of exercise. Missy is an energetic girl who loves running around the yard, searching for squirrels, and playing with stuffed toys. She also enjoys playing fetch and laying in the sun. Having a big yard for her to run and explore would be ideal.
Missy has an older golden foster brother who she gets along with very well. They run around and play together and share toys. When he has had enough play, Missy is learning to accept and understand corrections from her foster brother.
Our cute girl loves to ‘talk’, especially to her reflection in the TV, mirrors and windows. She has a goofy, silly, adorable personality and is very much still a puppy in a larger body. She would benefit by a training class with her forever family. She is very treat motivated, so training will be easy.  Missy has had great house manners at her foster home…she has left her foster’s belongings intact and has not had any accidents. Her forever family should set her up for continued success by showing her the appropriate place to potty and praising her for going there.
Missy is an exceptional girl who will make a very lucky family super happy. We are looking for a family who can give her all the exercise, play, love, and consistency she needs to thrive. If Missy sounds like the one for you, please complete our adoption application on our website.

NOTE: due to the high cost of international transportation, Melissa’s adoption fee is $1,000
