Just as the name implies, Prissy is the smallest and a little more reserved than her siblings Missy and Beaux. Prissy loves to be with her “people”. She is a rowdy play partner though and loves to go for runs across the pastures. Prissy especially loves to be held so she can put her head on your shoulder and be carried around.
Beaux, Missy, and Prissy are litter mates who were found on a rural county road by a teenage girl who insisted that her mom help her rescue them. Missy and Beaux were found together and taken to the vet, who did a skin scraping to test for mange. It was negative -- the pups were in such terrible shape (skin and coat-wise) due to a horrible flea infestation. The pups were bathed, given a treatment for fleas, wormed, and given their first distemper/parvo vaccination. The Good Samaritans posted the pups on Facebook and one of our volunteers tagged us on Facebook. We found a foster and agreed to take them in. Later that same evening, another Good Samaritan found Prissy on the same county road and posted her on the same Facebook page. Everyone who saw the post was pretty sure this pup MUST be a litter mate to the others. Our foster family agreed to take all three pups, and the first Good Samaritan picked up Prissy to take her in to the same vet to get the same treatment the other pups received. The vet said it's pretty much a certainty that the three pups are litter mates. At their young age, he could only guess at their breed, but we trust that his guess is as good as ours could be. As they grow, we may start to see characteristics that make us change our view about which breeds might be in their family tree. For now, the important thing is that these three pups are getting healthy -- they're getting good food, vaccinations and worming on a regular schedule, along with heartworm and flea prevention. Their foster family has a senior Great Pyrenees, Maggie, who loves "mothering" puppies, so Maggie is supervising the pups daily.

It's clear that all these pretty pups need is love and care. Fortunately, BARN rescued them in time for them to overcome a sad start in life, and they are all eager to fill your heart and home with fun and happiness.
