In shelter Dog

Whitewright, TX, 75491
Pet name:
Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Betsie Ten Boom is such a beautiful pup! And shes just as sweet as she is pretty. We pulled Betsie and her sisters Corrie and Nollie from one of our local shelters when they were in CODE RED status with crates stacked in the halls, trying to avoid having to euthanize any dogs for no reason other than lack of space. Corrie has been adopted, but her sisters Betsie and Nollie are still looking for their forever homes.

The family who adopted Betsies sister Corrie did a Wisdom Panel DNA test which shows Corrie to be 46% Australian Cattle Dog (Heeler), 39% Great Pyrenees, and then 3% or less of a few other breeds. Were thinking that perhaps mom is the Heeler, since all three sisters have some Heeler characteristics, including Betsies merle coat. The sisters look different enough from each other that its possible they each had a different dad. Based on the dark markings on Betsies face, its possible her dad might be at least part Anatolian Shepherd or German Shepherd. But we have no way of knowing, unless you want to donate a DNA test for Betsie!

Betsie plays well with other dogs and doesnt discriminate based on sex or size. Betsie happily sleeps in a crate every night. She hasnt had any potty accidents in the house, but because shes young, we do make a point of giving her plenty of breaks to play and potty in the yard. We are working with her on leash-training, but we never have enough time to do as much training as we would like, so she will definitely need more practice. Still, she walks reasonably well for a dog who doesnt get much practice on a leash.

Betsie is a very sweet girl who seems eager to please. She has learned the OFF command and has learned to sit for her meals and for treats. She is motivated both by treats and affection, and that usually helps with training, so if you enroll her in puppy class, Betsie should be a star pupil. Betsie goes into our chicken yard almost daily and behaves very well.

Betsie is waiting to become part of a family! If you would like her to be a part of YOUR family, please fill out our application today at
