Bettie Paige (Riley)

Gender:  Female
Breed:  Hound Mix
Size:  Large
Dog Friendly:  Some
Cat Friendly:  Unknown

Bettie is a sweet, loving and devoted companion. For years she was a loving family dog. Originally adopted as a puppy she was sadly surrendered when her family divorced. After losing her family Bettie went into boarding for a long time where she was lonely, sad and confused before finding a place in a loving foster home where she can finally be a part of a family again, which really is her specialty. Bettie is best buds with the 13 year old in the home and is basically just a big ole sucker for love. She loves belly rubs and pets and will gently nudge you if she thinks she deserves a few extra pets (which she does!)

Bettie is house broken, rides well in the car and knows basic commands. She is a medium energy dog content to snooze and snuggle in the house but equally as happy to go on walks on which she has excellent leash manners. Bettie does need a proper introduction to strangers but a few treats and some kind words and she will very quickly be all tail wags and snuggles. Bettie is looking for someone that can give her poor broken heart a permanent home again and she will return any love bestowed on her tenfold.
