Betts has the sweetest face doesn’t she?
At just 3 years old she found herself in the foster program at the Memphis Animal Shelter - she’s been so good in foster care they reached out to ask if we might be able to help find her a home in New England.
Her current foster mom just loves her - here’s what she had to say:
I’ve been fostering Betts for a week now and can tell you that she is a super sweet love bug. She is so happy to get head pats and belly rubs and wants to always be by our side. She has not quite learned the concept of personal space, haha! She was friendly from the start to both male and female adults. Betts is calm and quiet, with no annoying barking or jumping up on people. Betts is responsive to correction and has already learned to sit nicely and gently take treats from our hands. She is a sweetheart, and I think she would make an excellent family dog if you’re willing to give her the attention she needs.
So far, Betts gets along great with our two resident dogs, although she hasn’t engaged in play as much as our nine-month-old puppy would like. There has been a minimal amount of resource guarding with dropped treats and toys, but so far, just growls and no scuffles. She learned how to use the pet door by following the other dogs and that sleeping on the couch beside us is her favorite thing of all! She sleeps by herself in our laundry room, and we don’t hear a peep from her.
She would love to find her forever home and has an abundance of smoochies to give!”
She sounds great doesn’t she? We feel in love with that face just like her foster mom - we expect you will as well.
