Hi, my name is Bessie. I was picked up by the local shelter as a stray and had my 3 babies there. One day a really nice lady came and took me and my pups; Buelah, Billy, and Bart, home with her to Orphan Dog. She gave us food and toys and a room with a nice warm bed, but my pups are grown up now and it's time for me to find my forever home. I'm good with adults, I really don't like cats, and small children make me a little nervous. I am housebroken and sleep in a crate. I do like attention and will give you lots of love!
If you are interested in one of our dogs, please go to our website, www.orphandog.org. Many questions will be answered there. All Orphan Dogs are fostered in private homes by volunteers who graciously take time from work and home life to care for our orphans. We do not have a facility, and most dogs are transported to our scheduled Adoption Events!
Our van is limited on space and because of this sometimes dogs will get time off if the van is overfull. Other arrangements may be made for meeting a dog the dog if circumstances prevent you from being able to make it to events. Remember again though that volunteers foster dogs in their spare time so we encourage you to try to attend the events.
If you are local to Lake County, we do make arrangements to meet dogs here in town. However, please remember that most of our dogs have been in our shelters for weeks before we pull them. We take the dogs that have not been adopted yet. If you visit the shelter, you'll get the dog before I do! The fee there is far less as well.
