Meet Beautiful Betsy!!

I've just gotten the BEST bounce of my life...
into the Pound and then into heaven!!

Aaaah freedom!!  Did someone say TREATS??  Nummmmmmmy!!

10 year-old Betsy was turned in to an Alabama Shelter in August by her owner’s mother. She told the shelter that Betsy had been owned by her daughter since she was a puppy but gave no reason for the surrender. She thought Betsy was about 5 years old but it’s clear she at least 10. Betsy tested positive for heartworms and she leaks during a bit in her sleep. Maybe that’s why they dumped her? She is being put on medication to get her leak-free and so far she’s improving. She will be treated soon for heartworms.

Betsy is just about the happiest old girl you’ll ever meet. Her nub never stops wagging and she loves all dogs and people. Betsy was recently featured on Atlanta Pugged In in a segment about caring for Senior pets. she showed up the day of her TV segment and was a complete star. Everyone at the station wanted to meet and pet her and you could not have asked for a better example of a wonderful Senior dog.
