Hi there! My name is Bessie and I am searching for the perfect forever home to continue to grow in. See my previous owner passed away and their family couldn't take me in.


I am about 7 years old and younger more energetic dogs just rub me the wrong way. Don't get me wrong, I like to play with dogs my size, I just need slow introductions and maybe a low energy buddy like me. I was sent to RR Professional Dog Training by my previous owners' family to learn how to be the best dog I can. They made a really tough decision, so don't be mad at them. Then Northern Lakes Rescue stepped up to help me find my forever.


I am house trained and kennel trained. My foster describes me as the perfect grandmother dog. I love love love my people. I am good with all ages, kids all the way through adults! I am calm in the house, kennel well when needed, and love to snuggle on the couch. I know how to walk nicely on a leash, and enjoy a nice long walk in the woods.


By now I know that you have noticed my funny eye. No, it does not bother me at all, and I cannot see out of it. The vet said it is a lost cause. I think it adds character to my face.


If you think I am the perfect dog for you, please apply to be my forever at  

As always RR stands by their dogs and Bessie will have support with her training if the adopter has any questions or concerns! We are forever grateful for our friends at RR and the work they do!
Bessie's adoption fee is $275 which covers her spay, vaccinations, microchip and any additional medical care she may have needed while in the rescue’s care.
We are a foster based rescue, we do not house dogs at a facility. Age and breed, are NLR's best guess as we often don't know who or what mom and dad are.
