ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Misty is a lovely charcoal grey colored lab mix! She is 9 years young and full of love! Misty found herself at the shelter because she was fighting with the other dog in the home. At her mature age and robust size, Misty was found to have arthritis when evaluated by a veterinarian. Since her arrival at the shelter Misty has lost nearly 20lbs! She is feeling so much better and still has extra weight to lose. Misty is very well behaved as she has a lot of life experience. Due to the circumstances surrounding Misty's surrender, she must go to a home without kids younger than 5 years, and must have mutual visits with any other potential canine housemates. Misty is housebroken, kennel trained, and rides well in a car. Animal Control News No items found.
