Beta's current owners have taken the time to complete a questionnaire that Adopt-a-pet.com provided. The following section gives you detailed information about Beta in the words of and directly from people that love her very much and desperately need to find her a loving home.
"She is the sweetest dog, she is wonderful, always been great with people, timid with males but after a couple of times of meeting them she warms up, she loves women. She is super nice and cuddly, she listens, it's been very easy to teach her tricks, eager to please.
My wife found this baby girl about 1 1/2 years ago, sitting in a laundry basket outside of a grocery store. She was sick and abandoned. We took her to the vet and ended up keeping her. She was riddled with worms, fleas and had a virus called coccidia. She is truly blessed to be alive.

What do you think the ideal home for this dog would be?
Ideally, I'd love to see beta go to a couple without children or other pets. I currently have 3 dogs, she gets along great with them 99% of the time. She had had some bouts with attacking my older/larger dog. She is a skittish dog, but warms up to people quickly. We have tried everything we could possibly come up with, and she has recently started fighting with my older dog again. The reason I am now looking for the right home, my wife has recently become pregnant. I cannot afford to have a newborn around while someone attempts to break up a dog fight, nor is it fair to keep them separate or confined at all times. I love this dog very much and it breaks my heart to have to do this. She has been a joy and by far my best friend for the past year and a half. I am 100% positive she could be an amazing dog in the right circumstances.
She exhibited some soreness in her knees, I've been to the vet that said they couldn't see anything in x-rays. I began giving her daily fish oil and glucosamine. Seems to be doing much better!
