Trying to figure out how to market this dog for adoption. She was adopted out as a puppy, and now returned to us as a 4 year old dog. The family had children, and as soon as they were mobile, they started treating the dogs roughly. The other dog in the home began to display some aggression towards the kids to defend himself, Betsy would only lay on her bed and yelp, never made a move to defend herself. So they wanted to get rid of both dogs. We are glad she came back, no dog deserves to be abused. It's just sad that the parents would rather teach their children lack of respect for life and commitment than respect for living creatures and how to treat things lovingly.
She's not the beefiest, prettiest or nicest looking pit bull we've had but she's just about the sweetest. She absolutely gets along with everything. She is submissive to all other dogs, always giving them the submissive face lick. She's great with cats, ferrets, parrots. She's housebroken and doesn't need a crate. She's a low to moderate energy dog. She really doesn't require much in the way of exercise or discipline. She likes routine. She's good on leash and off leash. She does have a problem using the potty on leash but it's because she was always let out in a fence and never taught to go on leash. She's just a good, devoted and loving dog.
Can't figure out why we can't even get a nibble of interest on her. Is it because she's 4? I think that's a great age. Old enough to know exactly what you are getting with no surprises and lots of life to live.
