Update on Betsy

Adopted: June, 2019

Adopted: 6/22/2019

Dog’s former name: Betsy

What are the best things about your dog?
She is fantastic with the boys. She loves playing with them and is very patient, but has implemented a warning system with the 3 year old, if necessary. It is fun to watch them communicate with each other.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
She enjoys walks, especially when we get into the woods. There is definitely some sort of hunting dog mixed in. She routinely clears the yard of squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks. She has learned if she isn’t barking at them, they don’t get a head start. So far, she has only caught a few mice.

She loves playing tug of war and playing in a toy tent in the back yard with the boys. The 3 of them all get the zoomies together and dive in and out of the tent.

Her other hobby is following our 3 year old around any time he has food since he always drops something. He also holds out his hands so Betsy can clean them for him, even between bites!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Betsy has a hard time meeting new dogs. However, this is now only when she is on a leash. If we bring her somewhere, or have another dog at our place we can just let her loose and everything goes great!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Most people have no idea she is a pit bull since she is so slender. We have encountered some when told she is a pit bull have their whole demeanor change. However, normal people just comment on how friendly and pretty she is.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bets, Betsy Boo

  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Unstuff.

Update on Zadie

Update on Zadie

Adopted: July, 2019

Dog’s former name: Zadie

What are the best things about your dog?
Zadie has no understanding of personal space, which leads to lots of cuddling and love. She’s also a very good girl and wants to please her family.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Zadie got a fenced in yard just before the snow fell and now that it is Spring, she loves to be outside, rolling and zooming around in the grass. She also loves to go for walks and rides in the truck with dad.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Some people look worried when they meet her, but quickly realize she loves attention and is sweet. If you come to the front door and use the doorbell, she has a very hard time being quiet and settling down. We’re working on that 😉

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Z

FAST FIVE with Zadie

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? A little picky and maybe a little sensitive to some foods.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Loves her beds (and ours) but in the end sleeps most of the night in hers.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Lots of drinking and dripping.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sun
