Bessie (Leash of Life, fostered Wiltshire)

Sweet and gentle Bessie is a 10 year old, medium size, ginger Crossbreed. She arrived with Leash of Life just a few months ago, a bad of bones and with the saddest eyes. She’s now ready to look for the forever home she truly deserves. A local home would be preferable for Bessie, but further afield is possible for that perfect home.

Bessie is a dog that melts your heart. It was obvious that her recent life hadn’t been good and she had completely seized up on her journey here and was in a lot of pain. Now enjoying life in a foster home in Warminster, Wiltshire, she’s a new dog following lots of rest, medication and TLC.

Bessie is still a bit shy with new people but is a really loving, sweet and gentle girl who loves a back scratch. She needs a calm, quiet home with another, not too bouncy dog of similar size or smaller. Bessie isn’t keen on a lead yet, but once she has bonded with you and a resident dog, she will follow you everywhere. Her carer drives her to quiet fields where she loves to explore. She does need a countryside home and a secure garden is essential.

Bessie is a special girl who needs her own, special family to love for the rest of her days. She hasn’t really met children so it’s not known how she reacts. She can be nervous, so an adult-only home would be best. She needs a retirement home but with someone able enough to be able to lift her into a car, etc., and to encourage her out and about. Bessie needs the company and reassurance of another calm dog.

Bessie periodically needs Metacam as she can get very stiff joints.
