Betsy is a cute girl who has a typical terrier head but mom or dad must have had a longer body as she looks like a terrier in a corgi or basset hound body. She is very sweet and loves attention and being petted. She has been having regular sleepovers in foster homes and is learning about noises in the house and manners. Car rides, belly rubs, and throwing toys around are things Betsy enjoys.

Betsy has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. She would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Betsy's three months of heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.

Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.
