Missy would do best in a home that is in a more suburban area. She is very scared of the outside world and we are helping her to learn that its not such a bad place. Showing her this is much easier in a quieter neighborhood.

Missy has mad giant strides with her foster family and went from hiding in her crate all day to greeting them, playing with their other dogs, learning their routines and snuggling up for naps. We know she still has a long road ahead of her, but are so proud of the steps shes already taken.

We would definitely want her to go to an adopter who is experienced dog owner, sorry but no first time dog owners. Additionally, someone who understands the road a head is not going to be an easy one, but it will be totally worth it. Shes going to need a lot of patience to help her continue out of her shell.

Kids would be case by case, preferably older kids or kids that are well versed in dog and know that they will need to go slow and give her space. Same with dogs, she does well with other dogs that are on the relaxed side to give her space when she needs it.

The adoption fee for this dog is $365. This fee INCLUDES spay and microchip. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. Please contact your HT rep to learn about exclusive low-cost spay/neuter options made available only to HT adopters!

Every adopted Homeward Trails animal comes with 30 days of free pet health insurance. We are proud to partner with the following veterinarians who offer a free first exam for your animal, exclusively for HT adopters: Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Palisades Veterinary Clinic, Sunshine Animal Hospital and Clarendon Animal Care and all VCA Animal Hospitals.

Additionally, any VCA hospital will cover illnesses up to $250 at no cost to any Homeward Trails adopter.

We also provide a 30-minute phone consult with a professional dog trainer at Fur-Get Me Not within the first 30 days of adopting - just for HT adopters in the Arlington/Alexandria area. Start your new dog out on the right foot with this valuable, expert advice and guidance FREE!

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting http://www.homewardtrails.org/foster-a-pet/dog-and-cat-foster-program/
