A volunteer writes: The Urban Dictionary defines ‘Betty’ as a “hot chick, attractive and stylish”. She certainly is that, but what came to my mind at first was ‘Betty Crocker’ – comforting and easy. Our Betty is actually both those and more! Shy in her kennel and needing a few minutes to warm up, she’s a gorgeous pup in a clean, well cared for caramel coat. She was found tied up in a basement of an apartment building, but seems to have been well taken care of as her weight is perfect for her size, and once she knows she’s made a friend she’s playful and affectionate. Betty seems to love other dogs, kissing one through the fence, and wagging her tail at all. Toys? Sure, let’s play for a minute and then I’m going to go check out the new dog next door! Kiss? I’m ready, but wait, there’s another new dog who I need to meet. Betty is a stunning, sweet, quietly playful, affectionate puppy whose puppy curiosity and snuggly personality is going to make someone very happy. Shouldn’t it be you?
Betty pulls a bit on the leash. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Betty followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. She took the toy away but had soft body language.
Betty did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home.
