Biography

Missi is a very sweet and cuddly 7 year old Maltese mix. She was adopted 2 years ago from a shelter in Mundelein Illinois. Missi’s first 5 years were traumatizing; her owners trapped her, along with her brothers and sisters, in a bathroom, never letting them outside or giving them the opportunity to socialize. However, she has come a long way in the 2 years my mother has owned her. She loves walks, snuggles and of course treats! Missi needs a new home as my mother has Parkinson’s disease and my father passed away last June. It is too difficult for my mother to care for her given her health condition. Although this is a devastating decision, we know there is someone out there who would be the ideal companion for Missi. Missi does best in a quiet home with no children. She gets along well with other dogs and cats. She can be wary of strangers, so it’s important Missi be allowed to warm up to someone through a gentle and non abrupt introduction. Missi is partially house broken. She needs an owner who is willing to take her out several times a day. A backyard is always ideal. She is very smart, but needs a patient person willing to train her. She knows the stay and come command, but needs work on learning how to sit. She is up to date on all shots, spayed and microchipped.
