My story

Betsy Ross is one beautiful girl and full of life. She is pure sunshine. Her estimated birthday is December 11, 2016. Betsy has been through many journeys in life and is now starting another chapter with BHS. Betsy was not surrendered to BHS because of any faults but because her owner could no longer take care of her after her owner had a stroke. Yes her owner is devastated but BHS has committed to find Betsy the perfect home where Betsy can live out the rest of her life. Betsy is also handicapped due to a neurologic issue. She has a head tilt and loses her balance if she moves to quick. She has had Xray of skull and spine and no disc disease was detected. Betsy does not let this handicap stop her. She runs and plays, skips and wiggles and just has the biggest smile. She loves to snuggle on the couch with you while you watch TV and gives lots of kisses. She has lived with other dogs and is now living in a foster home with another dog. She has not been around cats.
Betsy is up to date medically and spayed. She is microchipped and registration is included in the adoption fee.

For more information, please call the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100, or go to www.bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm to fill out an adoption application.

Additional adoption info

Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great! Now, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website at http://bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm. This is not a commitment to adopt. It is simply the first step in the process. We will review your application for preliminary approval before asking the foster parent to contact you to set up a time to meet the pet. You may also have concerns about how the animal will fit your home environment. When the foster parent contacts you, you will be able to discuss your concerns with someone who has first-hand experience with the pet. After you meet the animal, you and the foster parent can decide if this is definitely the forever pet for you.
