Saturday's Dog: Introducing Missy

Click on Missy's pic to view her full profile.

How gorgeous is this girl?

With that ever-present big smile on her face, Missy is the perfect Lab for folks who don't actually want a Lab don't necessarily want all the work associated with young Labs.

The saying is Labs don't grow up until they're 7 or 8 years old so Missy has just passed that major milestone and all the hard work is behind her and all the best parts of Lab ownership - a trustworthy, loyal loving companion who is happy just to be with you - await if she becomes part of your family.

When I met her at Woofstock, I was impressed with how spry and happy she is - even in a crowd. But really, Missy's best selling point is how loving and lovable she is. She wants to "be your one and only".

She was surrendered to North East All Retriever Rescue (NEARR) due to owner illness. She was well-loved and well-cared for. That is obvious from her good nature and demeanor. She deserves to get back what she has lost.

Won't you consider making her part of your life or sharing her story with your family and friends? You never know just who might be thinking of adding a beautiful new friend to their family.


  1. Awww...thank you so much for blogging about her. I hope she finds a great home! As the owner of an 8 year old Lab who I adopted at 11 months, I can attest to the fact that these are dogs that mellow and perfect with age. :-)

  2. How precious is she.  I love that smile.

  3. Hi Missy!  I am hoping you find the most wonderful forever home in the whole world!

  4. Hoping Missy finds a home soon...she is adorable:)

    Funny that you mention that about a mom said it took 4 years for Shadow (our late Lab) to calm down.....

  5. Thanks Donna, she will find her perfect home - we'll make sure of it. 

    And I agree, Labs are definitely like a fine wine - they only get better with age. ;)

  6. Hi Finn, Isn't she pretty?  That smile cracks me up. :) 

  7. Thanks Rumpy! It's our job to make sure she does. :)

  8. Hi Scrappy - yeah, the "real" rule of thumb is it can take Labs 3 or 4 years to "mature".  My own personal experience though, extends that range considerably. ;)

    Tell your mom I am very sorry for your loss.  I still miss my big old Beau and it's been over 3 years. :hugs:
