Name: Missy (Reserved)

Missy was found abandoned in a park in East London on the 31st August & her future was looking very bleak. No other rescue had offered to help her and she wouldn't have been able to stay at the vets that had taken her in for much longer. ECR literally gave her a lifeline, as it has done for many a dog over the past 21 years. 

She is estimated to be between 10 and 12 years old. She had 5 rotten teeth which were removed during her operation together with some lumps, one the size of a satsuma!  Thankfully she came through the lengthy operation and has recovered remarkably quickly. The biopsy has shown all the lumps were not cancerous and her chest x-ray was clear. She has good kidney function, so, apart from some arthritis in her hips and some age related changes in her eyes, she is in quite good health.

Missy has started on Previcox for her arthritis ( which works out about 20p per day), and the rescue will continue to pay for this medication once she moves to her new home.

She is running (literally) around, her fur is growing back already and she is acting more like a 7 year old and is living life to the full.


Missy is a very affectionate girl and likes nothing more than jumping up and curling up next to you on the sofa with her head on your lap for cuddles so much so that she will nudge you with her muzzle to explain you must carry on stroking! She LOVES balls and will drop it at your feet for you to throw it for her ( and will tell you to throw it). She is also very skilled at catching a ball in mid-air! She would play all day if she could, interspersed with some snoozing and cuddles.


Missy walks fabulously on the lead, and really looks forward to her walks. She loves exploring in parks/heaths and meeting new people and dogs when out and about. She travels very well in the car, is great at the vets and is non-destructive around the house. When left she doesn't bark/whine but just plays with her toys and sleeps. She is a great  companion and everybody who meets her falls in love with her.


Missy would ideally suit a home where someone works from home or part-time as she loves company so much, but she would prefer to be the only dog inthe house.   She loves children so could live in a home with older children. Missy has a real zest for life and will bring much happiness to her forever home. She brings true meaning to the phrase 'age is just a number.
