Pet of the Week: Mishka
Mishka is a two-year-old spayed female Anatolian Shepherd mix who’s been at the City County Animal Shelter since the middle of August. Shelter records show she was surrendered due to a run in with her former family’s chickens. So, needless to say, she needs a chicken-free forever home.
Although Mishka’s exact lineage is unknown, the Anatolian Shepherd was originally bred to guard sheep. These muscular dogs are generally intelligent, patient, hard working, and extremely loyal.
When you first meet Mishka, she’s a little shy, even timid. While all the other dogs outside were barking, vying for attention, Mishka waited patiently and began to wag her tail as I approached her kennel. With a quick sniff of my hand, she was ready for some attention.
Mishka gets along with other dogs and children. But, shelter staff does not know if she gets along with or tolerates cats. Again, she must go to a home that does not have chickens.
If you’d like to meet Mishka, the shelter is open weekdays from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There’s a meet and greet room at the shelter where you can get away from the commotion and get to know Mishka or any of the animals available for adoption.
It’s always a good idea to introduce your furry family members to any animal you’re planning to adopt before taking them home.
Right now, there’s a wide variety of dogs and cats available at the City County Animal Shelter. Click here to download an adoption application.
