Pet of the Week: Bette

Becky's Pet Care


This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Pet of the Week is Bette, a Collie mix who was born in June. She is finally ready yo be adopted to a forever home. Here is what the people at Collie Rescue Inc. have to say about her:

Welcome to the world, Bette! This pup was born in early June 2016 along with four others in the litter.

Their mother is a Collie mix. Although we do not know the father, the puppies are definitely Collie mixes as well. A rural Virginia shelter had no place to keep these puppies, so Collie Rescue, Inc. is helping find them some new forever homes.

Bette has a slight puppy heart murmur (It is very common for young puppies, to develop an innocent heart murmur while they are growing rapidly. The murmur may first appear at 6-8 weeks of age, and a puppy with an innocent heart murmur will usually outgrow it by about 4-6 months of age.)

Bette is currently being fostered in Centerville, Va., so you must be willing to go there to meet the puppies before adoption.

Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a bath.

Are you and Bette a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
