Bessie is a 4-month-old female Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier blend and expected to weigh about 30 pounds full grown.

She’s a confident young lady who is not afraid to “speak” up and tell you how she feels.  She’s been a loyal and loving companion to her foster family, but is ready to strike it rich with her forever family. She loves children, cats and other dogs. And, she does talk a lot when first meeting you or a new dog, but she’s just trying to tell you how awesome she is and saying hello!

Bessie has the silliest long ears that make it look like she’s flying and the most comical expressions. She keeps her foster family smiling all the time!  She’s eager to be part of your pack and would love to have a spot in your heart and home.
