Hellooo Betsy – welcome to Colorado! Betsy is a sweet, sweet girl of about 9 years. She is probably a lab mix, but look at those ears…maybe shepherd? She is very small, though also underweight.
Betsy was in a shelter and boarding facility for several months after being relinquished to the shelter when her mom died. She has been traumatized by the experience, but also fortunate to have a team of caring volunteers who took a special interest in her. They literally kept her alive by moving her to a boarding facility until an appropriate home could be found.
Betsy is a cancer and heartworm survivor! She was adopted by the foster family that cared for her during her heartworm treatment. Her new family have lots of experience with special needs dogs, so we know she is in good hands. Have a long and wonderful life, Bets!
