Adopted: Missy, a <4 month old Black Female Labrador, who is looking for her forever home.
Here is a Bio from foster family……..
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY BEFORE REQUESTING TO MEET CONNER, MISSY OR ROXY.
Missy has been diagnosed with Canine Oral Papillomas.. It's common in puppies, whose immune systems aren't fully developed, and spread through saliva. Puppies like to lick!
While Missy will naturally recover from the virus, it will take up to 8 weeks for her immune system to be completely free of it. There are no symptoms, and no medication to give, puppies simply grow out of it.
While not contagious to people, the virus is contagious to other dogs. We strongly suggest, if your home already has a dog(s), do not request to meet Missy. She has to be kept from other dogs until the virus has run it's course, and as we don't know when she was introduced to it, it should be 8 weeks.
Please make sure you've read up on Canine Oral Papillomas and speak with your vet before submitting a Meet Request for Missy.
"Missy is a sweet, energetic puppy. Missy is a little more independent, happy to play with her sister and then snuggle. She's happy to lay with you, in between puppy play time, and take naps. Missy is learning to adjust to a kennel, and while not thrilled to go, she quickly settles down. Missy is doing great on potty training, quick to learn, and is close to sleeping through the night. As Missy is still a puppy, she's incredibly mouthy, full of curiosity and likes to run and play, and will need a strong leader to teach her through the puppy stages of life. Missy is with her sister Roxy, and loves to play. As we have to have them seperated, we cannot say how she is with other dogs at this point. Missy will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing her with structure, boundaries and training. Missy will make a great companion, as she loves people."
