Cute little Missy came into rescue as a neglected and abused little lady. She is a little Fox Terrier cross who is only around 7 years of age. She and her friend Rags arrived in rescue with Starfish Dog Rescue together, in the hope that they would find loving new homes where they can be cherished as they deserve to be.
Poor Missy was quite traumatized when she first came into rescue, but just a couple of weeks in her foster home, she is a different girl! She still has that worried look with new people and is not as confident as a little terrier should be, but she loves her foster family and has settled in very well with them. She loves playing ball with the boys and she is happy to make herself comfy on the beds when her foster mum is at work!
Missy just loves her cuddles and she would like a home where she has free access to the sofa and beds as well! She is good on her walks and off the lead, but is still a little anxious and sticks close by you. Although she travels well in the car, she is still just a little anxious and nervous there as well, poor baby.
Missy can live with children, but would prefer a quiet home where the kids are a bit older and used to being with dogs. She does enjoy playing football in the garden! She would love for her new owners to give her plenty of cuddles and reassurance and she would really love to share the bed with you at night!

She is just asking for patient, loving owners who will understand that she has been traumatized in the past and will make sure she has plenty of love and encouragement so she can continue to gain confidence and be the happy little dog she deserves to be.

Missy has been spayed, vaccinated & chipped.
