Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

Happy Friday!  I am so glad it's spring- am tired of watching my human shoveling 10-12" of snow and our not being able to walk as much as we normally do- am barkingly pawed to get back on our routine. 

WOW! One of my friends from Operation Paws for Homes has introduced me to a young lady needing a friend and a Forever Home who has come here all the way from a beautiful Caribbean Island! - Meet Missy-

An island girl rescued from the streets of Turks and Caicos, Potcake Missy came to the United States by rescue work through Operation Paws for Homes.  Though it may sound strange that a dog would need to be rescued from such beautiful islands, but life can be extremely hard for a stray island dog who is having to depend on tourists for attention and looking for food.  Operation Paws for Homes was happy to work with the Turks and Caicos SPCA to bring Missy to the states so she could find a happily ever after! 

Strays are called Potcake dogs in the islands which comes from the congealed rice and pea mixture that local residents traditionally fed the dogs.  Though their appearances vary, Potcake dogs generally have smooth coats, cocked ears, and long faces. 

Missy, a 1 1/2 year old mixed breed, sure seems to fit the bill. She's quite the comedian and will make you laugh with her daily goofy antics. Missy has the coolest expressions with ears as big as her heart.  Full of energy, she loves to play with other dogs in her foster home, loves running in the backyard and is probably the only one who has enjoyed romping in the snow this winter! 

Barkingly pawsome, a smart pup, Missy is quick to learn training and new tricks. She is housebroken too!  WOOF!!! 

Missy is loving life in the states! She starts each day with a wagging tail. She is a very affectionate girl who would love to be part of a family! 

Missy is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and being fostered in Alexandria, VA.
