Description:

** Update - Beatrice was adopted to a family that had a Senior dog, Beatrice is too active & now aggressive towards the older dog.  The family is absolutely devastated but feels she would do best as an only dog.

The family writes... Bea is a beautiful girl and loves spending time with her humans. She loves giving puppy kisses and cuddling up on the bed with you. She has a lot of puppy energy so having a fenced in yard would really help get that energy out. She absolutely adores the water whether it is chasing the water from the hose or going for a swim. Her leash training is coming along very well, and with time and patience, she will definitely get there. She is a fast learner, takes treats very gently and loves playing with her chew toys. She has learned how to touch before getting a treat as well as all her basic manners like sit, stay and come. She would be a loving addition to a home, but would do best as an only dog.

When she was found as a stray, Beatrice was in horrible condition. She was extremely thin and near starvation, covered in fleas and in need of some TLC. At first we thought she was an adult dog who had simply been homeless for far too long, but we later were told by the attending vet that Beatrice was still a puppy of approximately 6 months of age. Luckily for Beatrice, she was taken in by a very compassionate man who gave her love and care until we could get her into our rescue.

While her backwoods ear trimming gives her that "mean" dog look, Beatrice is very people friendly. She's also interacted very well with other dogs and loves her playtime with them. She will need some basic training to overcome her "puppy" mentality, but we know with proper training that she'll become a beloved family companion. With her high energy level, Beatrice would also be ideal for someone who is highly active or looking for a jogging/hiking companion

Beatrice has now been fully vetted, de-wormed and started on her monthly preventatives. Despite her rough condition when she was found, Beatrice now looks to be in excellent health and on her way to living a much better life than before.
