Betsy is a sweet girl looking for a calm and patient family. When she first came into our care, she was very nervous and unsure of us. After a few days of slowly gaining her trust, Betsy started to open up and show us more of her personality. Betsy can be very loyal and sweet to the right person and can be friendly with other people, once they gain her trust. She loves going out on walks and is looking for someone who can take her on adventures with them.
Betsy grows very attached to her people and is looking for a human that can be with her most of the time. As she can be anxious, Betsy would do best in a calm and quiet household with no small children. With Betsy’s previous background, she is looking for someone with previous experience in owning a dog. Betsy can be nervous around other dogs, and would prefer to be the only canine in the house. We are unsure of how she is with cats. Betsy will need to meet any interested families multiple times to gain her trust before taking her home.
Do you think you could be Betsy’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1.) Visit our centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or
2.) Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
