Facts about Bessie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Left at our gate with her 8 puppies, this sweet girl is the best. If you want the most loyal, affectionate, smart new best friend Bessie is your girl. Bessie looks to have had lots of puppies in her lifetime but is in great health, and just wants a place to call home. She seems to be house trained and crate trained, she is very well behaved with a loyal demeanor, she still loves to play, mostly loves to snuggle, and never stops wagging her tail. Bessie has the sweetest personality and would make the best new family member - we hope she can find that soon because she deserves it. If you just come and meet Bessie you will see what we mean.

About Heart of Texas SPCA

About Our Shelter...

Our History:
Our shelter was established in May of 2000 as a No-kill, 501 (c) (3) non-profit shelter. At that time animals were fostered and adopted out by word of mouth. In November 2001 adoptions were done out of a donated space at a local veterinary clinic, staffed completely by volunteers. We outgrew that space quickly and moved into our own location in 2002. We are now located on IH-10 West in Fair Oaks Ranch, near Boerne, housing only dogs. We have made great improvements threw the years and hope to increase the number of animals rescued, increase adoptions, fundraising events, and reach more of the community. We provide a temporary shelter, rehabilitation and care to homeless and unwanted dogs until responsible, loving homes can be found. As a no-kill shelter, we want to help reduce the number of animals euthanized each year by educating the public on the importance of proper pet care, animal behavior and overpopulation prevention.
"Saving lives others have toss away".
