Betsy is a very friendly and outgoing 1 year-old Collie/Hound mix girl who came into a rural county dog shelter in poor condition suggesting that she had either been on her own for awhile or neglected in her previous home. Not surprisingly, no one claimed her so she made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she would be able to get lots of TLC in a foster home while she searched for a great new home. Betsy gets along very well with other dogs and has been very friendly with all people that she meets. She has had no obedience training to date so her new family will need to work with her on that so that all of her puppy energy gets channeled in a positive direction. Betsy will also need work on leash manners as she had likely never seen a leash before entering the shelter. She does well in her crate so with a little effort and patience should pick up the housetraining routine in her new home. Having a mature canine companion in her new home to show her the ropes would certainly help her too. She’s going to make an outstanding companion for the person or family who has the time to show her how great a dog’s life can and should be. Betsy weighs about 39 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Betsy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so won’t place any of our dogs in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
