Meet Misty

Hi, my name is Misty. I am a 2-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix that loves attention! I get along with most of the dogs at the shelter.

I am spayed and microchipped, and current on all of my vaccinations.

Not sure about the cats though. I am current on all vaccinations, spayed and microchipped.
