Betsy joined BCSAVE via a small shelter in rural Oklahoma. She had been found as a stray and dropped off at the shelter, where we were able to pull her. Upon her release and transfer to a foster, we realized that she was very pregnant. In addition to being pregnant, Betsy was diagnosed with Ehrlichiosis, a tick borne disease. Since she was pregnant and about to pop, we opted not to treat her (a heavy dose of antibiotics for usually 30 days) since she would be nursing and as long as she remained healthy otherwise.
Betsy had 8 beautiful pups on the 4th of July. She has been a wonderful mother, and she is a sweet, gentle, loving pup who does great with dogs, people, and kids. Her coat has darkened to a gorgeous burnt auburn since weaning her pups, and she has the most expressive face. She’s moderately active, loving a good run and romp outside with her BFF but able to come inside and relax. Her puppies are nearly fully weaned and Betsy is now ready to find her own FURever home. She will begin treatment for the Ehrlichiosis but can be adopted during treatment as it is not contagious and should resolve with antibiotic treatment provided by BCSAVE. She will also need to be spayed in the next few weeks and BCSAVE can provide the spay at one of our local rescue partners either prior or after adoption.
