The lovely Miss Betty has been with her incredible foster mom for over a month now, and when asked to describe Betty, her foster asked if there was a nice way to say stubborn, hardheaded, hyper and dumb. LOL. Betty is a total sweetheart, but she will need someone who can be patient with her… quirks. Hey, don’t we all?
Betty has almost mastered potty training. Poor Betty had some trouble figuring it out at first, because she was so used to being in the shelter where she would hold her pee and poop for daysssssss. She HATES going outside, but oddly enough she LOVES walks. She carries the leash around in her mouth. She was returned to the shelter twice, because one person had too many animals and another had life style changes. All Betty has known most of her life is a kennel, and now that she’s finally not confined all the time, she is starting to feel comfortable letting her inner wild child out. We do not think previous owners ever tried to train her. However, she is so sweet, we think Betty would make an AMAZING emotional support animal. She wants to be with you everywhere you go. She’s constantly wanting pets or cuddles, and she is very generous with her kisses. Betty is very playful and loves stuffed animals. Her favorite thing is socks tied together. She can play for hoursssss. She’s got so much spunk wrapped up in her 54 pound, 5-year old body. Betty is missing a top big tooth, so she’s got the most wonderful and hilarious underbite.
Miss Betty tested positive for heartworms, but her heartworm treatment has been paid for by donations. Her foster mom has already started her treatments, and she is doing great. Whoever adopts Betty will need to continue to take her to the vet to finish her treatments, but the payment will be covered in full. Betty has been great with all 4 of her foster’s other dogs, as well as her cats. She’s also a sweetie with the neighbor kids! She can be a little mouthy and jumpy when she’s playing, so she would probably be too much for a small child. That said, every person who has met Betty Boo absolutely loves her, chaotic energy and all. “Because I tell ya, she’s walking chaos.” But a whole lot of love.
