Calaveras Enterprise

Pet of the Week



Here’s Missy (AO55594), a female Border Collie who the shelter estimates to be about 3 years old, and weighing 44 pounds of fluffy love.

Missy was abandoned and became a neighborhood dog. We can see why, with such a sweet face and beautiful markings. Thanks to the kindness of strangers she was fed and sheltered for a few months and now she is hoping for a forever home.

Missy is a calm, quiet and gentle dog with great leash manners. She wins first place in the cuddle category and knows “sit” and “shake.” She may be housebroken since she keeps her kennel clean.

Missy has been friendly with all the dogs she has met at the shelter, though she herds the smaller ones. What she was born to do!

A meet ’n’ greet is required if you have another dog. Missy will need to be spayed before going home with you.

Contact: Calaveras County Animal Services 209-754-6509 or Kbandy@ Please use Missy’s intake number (AO55594) when making inquiries at the shelter.

All dogs available for adoption at the Calaveras Animal Shelter are up-todate on their routine vaccinations and will be microchipped. All unaltered cats and dogs must be spayed or neutered before they can go home with you.
