Hi! My name is
Date of Birth
September 29, 2013
Mississippi (or Missy) is the sweetest girl and such a gentle soul. She LOVES her people and is happy to cuddle for hours with her head on your chest or lap. We have never met a more loving dog!
She is an older gal who is content spending most of the day hanging out on the couch. She loves for her people to be around but she is also AOK home alone and she is well behaved while her foster family is gone to work!! She is house trained but still does not “ask” to go outside (probably because she is quite lazy).. so as long as you remember to let her outside a few times a day she will do great and should have no accidents!
A mastiff cross who doesnt drool! A dream!
Mississippi loves her walks but does need some help learning not to pull on the leash!
While she loves every human she meets, Mississippi is not a fan of other dogs as she is not quite sure what to do around them just yet. We think over time she might be able to make a dog friend or two, but she is not ready to be off leash around other dogs or live with them. She will whine when she sees them on leash, and during an introduction she was a little rude and pushy and not overly friendly. A people only family would be best at this time and would make her the happiest girl in the world!
This sweet girl also came into AARCS care in need of some serious medical help. She had a few surgeries and may require future monitoring for lipoma and joint disease. She has since recovered well and is much happier, but adopters will need to talk to the medical team to know what her future care may look like.
Mississippi has an innate ability to sense when you’re feeling sad and make her gentle presence known. If you make Mississippi yours, she will be a loyal companion that will love and comfort you for the rest of her days!

Do I Need Special Care?
Both, Medical and Behavioral - Mississippi has had a few medical procedures since arriving at AARCS. She is also not comfortable around dogs at this time and would do best as the only pet.
