Bessie, pit bull terrier mix
Bessie is a charming female pit bull terrier mix being cared for at Mutts in a Rut Rescue, Inc.
Bessie is friendly as can be, and she'll get along great with other dogs. No need to worry: She's already house-trained, already spayed and she has had all her shots.
Here's what Bessie's friends at Mutts in a Rut Rescue, Inc. think of her:
Bessie is very affectionate, she loves attention, her people and loves to be petted. She is a little hand shy and cowers with sudden movements so a home with older children or adult home would be best for her. She is very well behaved in the house and not very vocal. Bessie doesn’t understand yet how to play with toys but is a playful and happy girl in general. It takes her a little time to warm up to new dogs (she tries to avoid them at first) but once she’s comfortable she becomes playful.
