(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,
This 1 year old, 49 lb catahoula leopard mix is stunning with her beautiful merle coat and spirited disposition!
Bessy is very active, super energetic and very playful. She can jump very high and is a good climber. She will need a lot of space and regular exercise. Her ideal family would be one that enjoys long hikes or going on long walks or runs. She will also need a yard to run and play in since she is considered high energy!
She walks beautifully on a leash and needs little to no correction and barely pulls.
She would be the perfect companion for someone athletic and outdoorsy!
She gets along well with most dogs but does not mix well with dominant males. She would do well as an only dog or placed in a home with a friendly, energetic, submissive female or male.
She is very independent and super competitive as she likes to play fetch and loves stuffed animals and chew toys. She can be possessive over her things and needs help learning to share. Bessy is extremely food motivated so training should be easy with this girl.
She is potty trained but not crate trained
She is very protective and extremely loyal. She is mostly a quiet dog but will bark at other dogs when outside guarding her territory.
Even though this girl has lots of energy and can be intense, she is also very affectionate and sweet!
She loves to be near her favorite person at all times and will follow you around wherever you go. She is people friendly and would do best in a home with children 5 and older as she likes to jump due to excitement and her energy level. Her new family/owner will need to have patience and willing to work with her on this behavior.
One of her favorite things to do is go to the dog park.
Bessy has a high prey drive and would do best in a house with NO CATS. She will try and chase squirrels and small critters on her walks is she spots them!
Her foster mom reports that she doesn’t shed and has a very low maintenance coat?
Are you ready for a girl like Miss Bessy to come into your home?

Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no choice but to euthanize animals for space. We prepare them for adoption by properly vetting and providing individualized care through our incredible behavior program that consists of socialization and leash training for all animals that enter our adoption program prior to matching them with loving families who will treasure them for the rest of their lives. They are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts once adopted, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be! Three Little Pitties Rescue will soon be celebrating our 5 year anniversary! Over the course of this time, we have been very fortunate for so much growth, allowing us to further connect with the community and save many lives. Through the combined efforts of all of our hardworking staff and volunteers, we have placed over 10,000 very lucky dogs and cats into amazing homes! By adopting from us, you save TWO lives! The pet you adopt, and you create an opportunity for another animal to be brought into our rescue program. Together, we can be heroes.
