Dottie Beth is a sweet girl. She loves to play with her fursiblings. She is a Melrose Park girl and her life is so much better than it was. She is obedient and crate trained.

She is a chunky girl but probably the sweetest love bug you will ever know!  She loves her fur siblings.  We are still working on potty training for inside as every now and then she has an accident but for the most part she is good about doing her business outside.  She does not sleep in a crate at night anymore as she prefers to sleep with two of her fur siblings in Mom's room on floor right by the bed.  She does like to guard at times and not really liking anyone approaching her space that she doesn't know but is in no way aggressive or threatening.

Dottie Beth was rescued out of Melrose Park.   She was not in good shape, and was pregnant.   Taken to the vet, Dottie lost all of her babies.   She has been with a foster ever since.   Dottie Beth was diagnosed with Mammary Cancer on January 8, 2016.   She will be undergoing surgery very soon to remove the tumors.
