Bethany is a sweet, happy, loving angel, and we think you'll fall in love with her as quickly as she falls in love with you!
Bethany's tail is always wagging and she's great with meeting strangers. She's a very affectionate pup and will accept their love and pets for as long as they're willing to give them. In between asking for pets by sweetly sliding her head into your hands, Bethany enthusiastically and fearlessly explores any new environment.
Don't be fooled by her grey whiskers, because Bethany still knows how to play like a puppy. She's very spunky and likes running around the yard to burn off energy and gets hilariously rowdy when she hops into bed for the night. Then she'll flop right down at the end of the bed to settle in for some sweet dreams. This is not the dog who will be in your face waking you up before the sun either; she's perfectly content to get up when you are. But when she does hear you get up, you'll be treated to the THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP of her tail wagging against the bed.
After a good play session or a long walk, Bethany is happy to entertain herself or just take a nap. She's not that interested in toys - when she's offered a tennis ball, she takes this as an offer to be loved on. But she does have one favorite stuffed toy she likes to chomp on and enjoys Kongs stuffed with treats.
Smart and very trainable, Bethany LOVES treats, which makes working with her a breeze. She sits perfectly while she waits to be leashed up, she's 100% house-trained and has been left successfully in her crate. She also does well left home outside of one without getting into any trouble. She won't chew on anything but her Kong or favorite toy and doesn't get in the trash or anything that isn't hers. She does great on car rides and is just so happy for any chance to pal around with you.
It's hard not to fall in love with Bethany's inquisitive, loving and joyful nature. Come meet this sweet girl!
