Misty, is a
beautiful spayed female Akita who happens to have three legs. This doesn't
stop her from being a real sweet well manured lady! She is easy going,
and doesn't require much but flat exit to get to the bathroom. She loves
to spend her day with her person and laying around enjoying the sunshine.
Misty would like to be your one and only or can share you with a low key
dog. She would love a fairy tale ending and be treated like the princess
You can meet her at the Brian J. Silverlieb Animal Care and Control Center
located on Old Farm Road in Newtown, CT (203) 426-6900.
Still waiting for the right family to call her own, Sunny, a beautiful,
gentle, well-mannered, two-year old Pit/hound mix has been returned to
Newtown’s Brian J. Silverlieb Animal Care and Control Center for
the second time.
Why has this loving dog failed to meet the expectations of these two families?
The answer is easy- separation anxiety - not an unusual outcome in a short
life filled with trauma.
Found as a stray in Newtown and brought to Newtown’s municipal shelter,
it was soon discovered that Sunny had recently given birth. Her puppies
were never found. Was she neglected? Abused? On the street rummaging for
food and shelter for herself and her puppies? We just don’t know.
There is no other history for this girl.
Unfortunately, her vagabond life has taken a toll on her. She does not
like to be alone. Who can blame her after what she’s been through?
To make her the best family member she can be, a comprehensive long-range
plan has been established to assure Sunny that her next trip out will
be with her forever home.
• Her trainer and shelter staff will meet with all prospective families
to determine the best “fit” for Sunny.
• Her trainer will begin working with her and the shelter staff
now, to build up her confidence and self-esteem.
• And, her trainer will initially work with her and her family after
she’s adopted or fostered.
The good news is that Sunny is SUCH a great dog she now has a fan club
of dedicated animal lovers ready to give her every chance to find the
perfect forever home. And, her initial training, both at the shelter,
and after she’s adopted or fostered, will be paid through a generous
donation from Canine Advocates of Newtown, Inc. : www.canineadvocates.org.
In addition, Canine Advocates is paying for a yearly supply of her current
Sunny can be seen at the Brian J. Silverlieb Animal Care and Control Center
located on Old Farm Road, Newtown, CT. (203) 426-6900.
