2NURFM'S Pet Rescue - Sammy & Missy

Sammy & Missy 


Missy and Sammy are very cute, lovable, tri-colour Mini Foxys. Missy is 3 and a half and Sammy is 2 and a half. It would be wonderful if they could be rehomed together, however they can go their separate ways if they find the perfect forever home. 

Each has their own little personality. Missy is undemanding and affectionate. Just a sweet little dog to brighten your day.

She is a little darling. She loves to sit on your knee for cuddles & she's also happy to follow you around everywhere or let you carry her. 

Sammy is a lively little boy who bounces along with a happy spring in his step. He loves to sit on your knee for cuddles and will also follow you around everywhere. Both would make the perfect companion dog.

Missy and Sammy use the doggy door to go outside when needed for toileting. They have also been taught basic training.  Both are inside dogs and need to be allowed inside, at least when people are home, and to sleep inside. They both get along with other small, friendly dogs.

Missy and Sammy's adoption fee is only $400 each and includes desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, microchipping, and lifetime registration.
