Do you need a loving home office supervisor? Then Missio is your guy. This low-key, curious guy will want to follow you everywhere, especially if there's a chance treats may be involved. He'll make sure that you're never lonely on the couch and will gently nudge you for attention. He patiently waits in his crate each morning until you get out of bed to let you know it's going to be the best day ever, and he's so happy to see you. During the day, he's content to snooze next to your desk or in the living room if you're talking on the phone.

He enjoys a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood - with one eye on the squirrels. A well-trained guy, Missio answers to "sit," "stay," "down," "place, "free and "no." He does not beg for food or jump on furniture or beds unless invited to. He's a quiet guy who does not bark in the house unless a stranger enters uninvited and mostly snorts when he's happy to see you.

At home, he's house-trained and roams the house freely, doing well when his people are away. Like most people in Austin, Missio can be skittish on roads with heavy traffic or loud sounds and would love a human who can help him develop a level of comfort. He is a very intelligent dog that will eventually figure out that traffic is a normal part of life.

Missio is an introvert and tends to be a bit shy and awkward around new people. However, it doesn't take long for him to warm up to his people and come out of his shell. A faithful and smart guy, he will love a quiet and low traffic home and a yard to roam. Come meet this adorable guy. Tell him you also enjoy quiet time, and he'll be glad to join you.
