About Bette

Meet beautiful Bette.  She is a red 4 year old petite dober-girl who weighs approximately 50 pounds. She has recently been spayed.  Her tail is docked.  Her ears are cropped but they have flopped over.  She is thin and needs to gain some weight. 

She enjoys going on walks and is very good on a leash.  She has been good in the car.  She is quiet in her crate.  Bette respects baby gates.  She is very food motivated. 

Bette is currently living with her foster-mom’s male Doberman and two cats.  She ignores the cats.  She is neutral with her foster-mom’s dog. 

Bette was very scared when she came into foster care.  She is coming out of her shell and is quite smart.  She is very sweet and likes to cuddle on the couch.  She wants to trust, do the right thing and constantly looks for direction.

She has been on hikes with other dogs and remains neutral to whomever she meets.  She does not like other dogs who rush up to her face and will tell them so. 

She loves walking and hiking every day and has benefited from the solid routine, exercise and structure. 

She has shown some resource guarding when she is in her crate – but not when she is outside her crate. This girl is going to bond deeply with her new owner(s).

This Is My Story

Bette's owner asked for us to find her forever home.
