Meet Betty Lou!
Betty Lou is a red rough, 8 year old Brussels Griffon who weighs 9.5 pounds. Betty Lou spent all of her life in a wire crate in a puppy mill, and is just beginning to learn how wonderful life can be. She is very friendly toward people and other dogs, and is fascinated by all the birds along the Gulf shore. She is as sweet as she looks. She is learning to walk on lead with a collar or harness, and is housebroken if taken out frequently and watched carefully.
Betty Lou would do well in a home with another dog or 2, and lots of toys, so she can play and make up for all those lost years. She has been spayed and microchipped, is on heartworm preventive, has had a dental cleaning. She will sometimes bark if left alone in a crate, but will usually be quiet if the crate is covered. She sleeps well all night, but does snore at times. She has a very good appetite. She is currently being treated for an infection in her ears.
Betty Lou is a precious dog who likes to be with people and has a lovely personality. She deserves a wonderful and special forever home. Could you be that home?
Betty Lou is located
in central Florida.
If you would
like more information, contact Margie.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Keep in mind
that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where
they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area
is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get
the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Betty Lou has been Adopted!
Update from Betty Lou's new family:
Lou is adjusting great with her new family, we are so happy
to have her. It has only been a little over a week and she
is running in the back yard with Dixie, her 18 month old sister.
We go for short walks every evening and she walks faster every
day, she has picked up her pace and actually gets excited
when we get the leash out. Her main purpose in life right
now though is to see how much food and treats she can get
from us. I cant go into the kitchen without her standing
there looking up at me the whole time. Of course she gets
what she wants, I think she is training us already. She has
not had one accident in the house yet, and she is out of her
crate most of the time, of course she is more comfortable
in the crate but we are working with leaving her out when
we are home, she is realizing that there is more to life than
sleeping inside her crate all day. She has been to our neighborhood
dog park twice with Dixie, she walks up to every person there
and insist they pet her and her little tail goes to waggin
is such a sweet little gal and I hope she has enough happy
years left to make up for everything she has been through.
I already took her to our Vet. and he thinks she is in fine
shape thanks to all of you wonderful people at the rescue.
Thanks to pat and Rene also for working with her like they
did and trusting us enough to let her come home with us. I
think Dixie was hoping we were going to leave her in Cedar
Key but now Dixie looks in on Betty Lou when she sleeps to
long, as to say get up and lets get into trouble
you all for the wonderful work you are doing!!
Sharon, Robert, Betty Lou and Dixie
