Read about 10 Fido Lifestyle Types
|Size:||Medium ( 30 – 50 lbs )|
|Age:||Young – 1.5 years|
|Type:||Draft or Rescue|
|Breed:||40% pit bull, 40% german shepherd, 20% ?|
|Vaccinations:||Yes, within the last year|
|Reason for Rehoming:||
My schedule does not allow for a dog who requires as much time as Betty. She needs someone who can be home more than I am able to. Also, she needs continued training for her reactivity issues that I am unable to provide.
|Preferences for New Home:||
A couple or family who are interested in adopting a highly intelligent dog who does require work. Betty is a project as she has issues that need work and training. Her reactivity can be worked on so the ideal new home would be someone who is compassionate, patient, and understanding of a super smart dog with fear and anxiety.
I think whoever adopts her should meet her at an open field first so Betty can have a positive, safe first impression.

Meet Betty. She is an amazing runner and loves to chase balls and bring them back right away! A perfect day for Betty includes chasing the ball at a soccer field, running around 1000 acres and chasing sticks, and working on tricks and training. She’s extremely intelligent and loves to learn. She is definitely a working dog. Betty prefers not to be left home alone all day or to share a home with kitties or children.
