Sweet girl Bess had been homeless since she was born to a stray.  The dog mom had 6 puppies but only Bess and Bena survived.  Because the dog mom was very fearful of people, the rescuer decided to spay her and let the dog mom lives on their land, so that she will be safe and never would worry about scavenging for food and be hungry.  

Bess is very friendly with people.  She might be a little hesitant when first meeting a male but once you wins her trust, she warms up and would come to get pets from you.  Even though she’s still a puppy, she has the maturity of an adult dog.  She is calm and smart.  Her rescuers said that Bess loves to chill at home and enjoys her home life.  

Like most dogs, she is a bit cautious in new environment.  Bess would observe the situation and environment before acting like her usual self.  It does not mean she is timid.  She in quite balanced, in fact.  She does not show any signs of separation anxiety when left along at home.

Bess loves being with people and affection she receives.  If young children who are gentle and not too loud, she gets along with these children.  She also gets along with other dogs and cats.

Bess has been crate trained and when she gets sleepy, she would go back to her own crate.  Her crate has always been left open, and she would go nap inside for a few hours, come out to change a location when she wants to.  If she gets scared or something or someone bothers her, she would go back to her crate.  It’s like a safe space for her.

Bess has been house trained, and would do her business either inside or outside.

Her rescuer is very intentional in trying to help Bess understands and explores the world, and they often takes her to travel around Taiwan. The rescuer said, she really wants Bess to carry all these wonderful memories when she begins her new life with a forever family.  She does not want Bess to have any bad memories from her homeless days – when she often times went hungry and was terrorized by bat-wielding people who wanted these dogs to stay away their neighborhood.  

Very lucky for Bess, she was rescued!  She is now waiting patiently for her forever home.  Would you be her forever family?  If you are interested in Bess, please contact us anytime!
