Update 6/2/18: Adopted!
Arrived as a humane case
Missy, a five-year-old pit bull, was taken in at the Los Angeles County Animal Control Downey facility as a “humane case.” Upon intake, Missy showed signs of neglect, including being nothing more than “skin and bones.”
Thriving with the shelter staff’s care
Missy looks like a new dog. No longer skin and bones, she has a shiny coat and she is at a healthy weight. The following information has been provided about this homeless dog:
Missy is a playful, sweet, happy go lucky kind of gal💗 She is beautiful,smart and just a joy to be around💗
Missy loves to play with other dogs in playgroup, she loves butt scratches and she really loves to chill right next to your side🐶
Missy came into the shelters as a humane case ~ she was emaciated, neglected and shut-down but when she realized we were kind & loved her she bloomed into this stunning lovable girl💗
Out of time
Though Missy is thriving at the shelter, she is out of time. Missy has been at the animal control facility since February 23. She has been posted on Petharbor and social media, but as of yet, no one has come forward to offer her a forever home.
