BARCS Adoptable Dogs: Meet Betsy Ross

| August 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

Hi friends! My name’s Betsy Ross. You may know Betsy Ross as the historical woman who sewed America’s first flag; I promise to make history by being the most loving dog you’ve ever known!

I’m 7-years-old, but don’t let my age fool you—I can still romp around with the best of them. In fact, I LOVE going on walks and exploring the world around me! There’s just so much to sniff out there. When I’m ready to settle down for the evening, you can find me relaxing on the back porch or a comfortable sofa.

My human friends at BARCS say I’m affectionate and sweet. I just LOVE hanging out with people and giving kisses! I also know all sorts of tricks like Sit, Shake, High Five and Lay Down. However, I’m a little weary about meeting other doggos, so if I could be the only pup in your home, that would be great.

My adoption fee is WAIVED this month thanks to the Dog Days of Summer adoption event. Won’t you come down to BARCS to meet me? I’d love to go home with you!
