Meet Bessie

We are compiling e-mails over the next few weeks, please only send 1 e-mail and please don't call the shelter. Please answer questions at end of her bio.

Bessie sadly is back, no dog is perfect and this poor girl has had a very sad/tough year, only apply if you are serious about her and ready to give her a chance to trust you and work with her behavioral issue.

Bessie is approx. 3yr old spayed female, Pitbull/Cattle dog mix mix mix. Bessie came to us as a stray from the emergency clinic. A good Samaritan saw Bessie running around with what appeared to be an infected wound on her chest, a wonderful Yamhill Officer caught her and took her to the ER, where the found she had been shot and the bullet was lodge in her elbow, luckily hitting no organs. Even through all that Bessie still loves people, she is sweet, loves cuddles, loves to play, run and well be a wonderful dog. Since we've had her in our care she has recovered from the gun shot, has been spayed, microchip, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and SPOILED ROTTEN!!! She has been around lots of other dogs, children and a few cats. She is still a little stiff in the elbow, so a home with older children would be best. Bessie was adopted at the end of October, a week into her new life she began showing signs of territory guarding of the house. When she 1st arrived here, she did this and we just let her know everything was okay but that behavior is not allowed, basically told her "everything is fine, sit down", she listed and stopped doing it here. Her new owners were not prepaird for this and during a barking incident at the door, her owner grabbed her by the collar and she bit him (didn't break skin). They didn't want to invest any more time into her. Please only serious adopters, we are their guardians and speak for them, if you are going to give up because she is not perfect, then you need not apply.

My adoption fee is $250
