Poodle, Miniature
19 lbs (small)
Status: Adopted for hospice care

Bess is a poodle super model and super nice to boot!

She’s such a beauty, with her gorgeous gray coat and those fantastic fluffy ears framing her lovely face. Bess is just as sweet as she is beautiful, which is very. Is she poodle perfection? We’ll let you be the judge (but we vote “yes”!).

Here’s a note from her foster:

Sweet Bess is a spry senior whose activity level is great! She loves walks all the time and she is super playful when she’s getting enough to eat.

She gets along with other dogs. She does not play with them but they are mostly indifferent toward each other after the initial sniff.

Bess has been good with house training and she lets us know when she needs to go outside to use the bathroom. She has only had one accident since she got here which is to be expected.

Here are some super cute/sweet things about her personality:

-She likes to sleep on a bed/couch with her head slightly off of it.

-The way she gears up to jump onto a couch/bed is really funny.

-She loves belly rubs and cuddles and rotates her body to show you where she likes to be scratched.

-She loves being on my lap and loves licking my face and hands. -When she’s in a playful mood she looks like she’s smiling and starts jumping around!

-She likes to sniff literally everything when she’s on walks, so the walks are very slow.

After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Bess is living life to the fullest in our Hospice Program, under which one of our special hospice families has provided her with a loving home and the very best possible end-of-life care. Please wish Bess well!
