Betsy and her four siblings hail from the town of San Juan del Obispo, just south of Antigua. Their mother lives with several other dogs on a rented property. The caretakers of the property told rescuer Francesca that the dogs were left by previous tenants. The dogs were all in extremely poor condition when Francesca began helping the family. All the adults including the mother have now been spayed, vaccinated, and wormed. Francesca brings the family dog food, as well.

We took this litter as they were very young and not yet fearful of people. Additionally, two of the puppies had severe eye problems, and it seemed likely that they would each lose at least one eye.

We brought Betsy in at about 5 or 6 weeks of age. She was one of the three healthier pups, the only female, and the biggest puppy in the litter.  She was fostered for a month and got great dog experience being fostered by Tessa and Gerson with their large mixed pack. She is  friendly and very affectionate. She is learning her basic behaviors quickly and loves to play the training for treats game with her foster family. She now in foster with a great couple who are making sure she sees all kinds of sights and sounds, meets all kinds of people every day, and has a great base.

She is spayed and up to date on all her shots. She is ready for a lucky family to take her home.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping dogs and cats in Antigua. We sterilize, rehabilite and find homes, and work with other rescue groups.
