CHICAGO (CBS) — The one-year-old pit bull mix that was left alone in a Chicago city dog pound van for at least five days last month is now a step closer to getting her “forever home.”
Missy was apparently forgotten for five days and nights in mid-April, left in a Chicago Animal Care and Control van with almost no food and water.
She survived. Last week, Missy was transferred to the rescue organization Found Chicago.
“She really is a sweet girl, but she’s a bundle of energy,” said Found Chicago executive director Juliana Villacorta. “She’s going to require a little bit more work. She has a sparkle in her eye, and I think you’ll notice when you meet her, when she locks eyes with you, she is like, ‘Oh, are you going to come pet me? I’m waiting for you. I’m waiting. Come on!'”
