Update on dog who has spent 6 years in shelter after found running after her owner’s truck

In Orland, California, Missy continues her six year wait at the Town and County Humane Society. Sadly, she had been dumped by her owner on the side of the road; she ran after the truck that abandoned her until she couldn’t run anymore. When found, she had a note tied around her neck asking someone to take care of her, find her a good home, adding that Missy was a very good girl.

Missy’s heartbreaking story has been popular on social media although no one has stepped up to offer her a home as reported on Sunday:

“Orland Town & Country Humane Society
#otchsmissyupdates Missy in her new winter coat. She’s still looking for her furever home, MUST BE THE ONLY PET, as well as with someone who has some experience in owning a powerful breed. Someone who’s a homebody with a big fenced yard is a plus.”

Missy likes cat, but not in a good way, so no cats at her new home either. She does, however love people and has never shown any reactivity towards people.

“She absolutely loves to ride shotgun in a truck. The last time she was able to sneak past one of the kennel workers, she was having the zoomies out in the yard, so we opened up the truck door and she ran over and jumped in. It took us twenty minutes to be able to get her out of the truck, even with a leash on, we could not pull her out!”

“She loves people, loves to hike, adores being a couch potato! She is also a very quiet dog, barking only when necessary. She is affectionate and gentle, however she must be the only dog in a home… she is reactive with other dogs…”

Missy needs an experienced owner, who has the time and patience while giving her the love and reassurance she needs to live out the rest of her life in a happy home. Please continue to share Missy’s story – someone out there will surely see her photos, read her biography and fall in love.
