Bette was found as a stray with several of her siblings and is now getting used to humans and this whole beloved family dog thing. For the first few days in her foster home, Bette was too scared to interact with people, but will now cuddle with her foster mom on the couch and enjoys getting scratches under her collar. She also lets her foster parents pick her up, carry her around, bathe her and do her nails without issue. While initially unsure about new people, Bette definitely wants to trust them and isn't aggressive at all in her shyness. She'll even allow strangers to approach and pet her.
Bette currently lives with a pittie mix and at first was frightened and wouldn't interact with him, but after two days they became best friends and now actively play for hours on end. When the resident dog comes to check on his mom in the other room, Bette will follow him, standing in the doorway like, "Where did you go? I still want to play! and wag her tail until he runs back to join her. Bette's much quicker to trust dogs than people, so she'd likely do very well in a multiple pet household. She's also fully house-trained, loves her crate and does great left alone in it. It's her safe space and she likes having it next to the resident dog's bed to sleep in at night. She's also a very quiet pup to have around, so she'd do well in an apartment setting.
Docile, shy, curious and so very sweet, Bette Midler would love a home with people who will let her on the couch, a doggie sibling to help show her the ropes, and of course LOTS of toys. If you think you can handle all that, come meet this sweet girl!
