Featured Furkid – Bessie
Bessie, a 40-pound Basset Hound mix, is known around the shelter for her soulful eyes and wiggly bottom. It’s hard to believe she has had such a rough past. We are hopeful she will find her forever home soon, with your help!
Bessie was originally rescued by another Atlanta shelter when she had a litter of puppies in 2011. Her puppies were all placed in adoptive homes and Bessie underwent heartworm treatment. After a few months she was adopted and thought she was home, forever.
Her new family decided they no longer wanted her and dumped her on a neighbor who was a fellow animal lover. Miraculously she made her way to our organization, and the original rescue was informed and agreed we would care for her.
Bessie has been with Furkids/Small Dog Rescue for about six months now and everyone she meets is enamored with her sweet demeanor. Bessie is GREAT, AMAZING, AND FANTASTIC with children and other dogs! She has attended multiple children’s events and been the main star.
Bessie enjoys sunbathing too! (see her picture above) She will pull her leash until she reaches optimal sun exposure and then lay down, even if it is in the middle of a parking space at City Dog Market!
Bessie is a hound, so her nose can sometimes get her into mischief. She has no problem opening a fridge or even a door at times to find her people or food. If you are looking for a relaxed sweet loving dog that will always keep you laughing and on your toes, Bessie is your girl!
This girl deserves a forever home that will love and accept her for who she is! Apply today or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to meet her.
