Bess' mother was found 12/8/03 eating garbage on the side of a road. When I gave her some food and snacks, she took me to her puppies where no food or water dishes were located in the middle of a pasture. The owner was later contacted, and did not make any effort on their behalf. The mother is a red hound with blue eyes named Susie. The puppies were about 4 weeks old when they were found.
Bess is really sweet, but for some reason is still shy of people. Her brother Trevor comes up to me all the time, but I sometimes have to chase Bess to give her monthly heartworm prevention. She will let me pet and love on her once I have her, and she will even come a few feet from me wagging her tail, but then moves away if I step toward her. If her brother or mother dig a hole under the perimeter fence, she will follow them. She has been outside her entire life, so I don't know how she would react to being in a house. She needs a very special patient and loving home with a very secure fenced yard, or needs to be adopted with her brother Trevor to help her adapt to a new environment.
