If you come meet Betty, she will be so excited and very curious about you. She may even jump up and down, but very soon she'll calm down and be very sweet with you. She'll love it when you tell her how pretty she is, and she'll want to snuggle right next to you on the couch.

This sweet, playful girl is in foster care with her puppy, and she's enjoying having new humans to play with, especially the teenage daughter. She's very happy to see her come downstairs and greets her with a little yowl. She loves to snuggle with everyone on the couch, curling up into a tiny pup. She's a good couch potato, too, when they're working or watching TV.

She's on distemper watch, so can only walk around the fosters' yard, but is excited to see anything that moves, so should do very well when she can go for longer hikes. She can be a hyper playmate, running around, so playing outdoors will be important and healthy for her. She's also a smart girl who's ready for training and already understands "sit." She's making progress on her house-training, learning to go to the door when she needs to go outside. And she does well when her fosters are away, free roaming and snoozing on the couch.

Betty will love a home with a family and playmates who can take her out for playtime and walks. Come meet her. She'll want your love - and promise to give it back!
