Bessie is the consummate family dog. This girl oozes kindness, good energy, and affection. Truly, temperamentally, Bessie is a gem. Add to that her super versatile medium size and it's a bit of a head scratcher how this lovely girl hasn't been snatched up. She's been nothing but great with all the other dogs at the kennel, and her interactions with the young son of one of our volunteers are the stuff mom dreams are made of.

While we don't know all the ins and outs of Bessie's past, we do know she was a wonderful mama to her eight puppies. They all ended up in a kill shelter but she had managed to keep them all alive before someone found her and her puppies. Bessie's eager to please, smart ("shake" appears to be in her repertoire), and housebroken. All of Bessie's babes have since been adopted and it is well past time for this mama to have her time in the sun. Bessie is an absolute sweetheart who would love nothing more than a person to snuggle up to. Could that person be you? Are you the forever home Bessie is so deserving of? Sheand wesure hope so!
