Bessie is our aging father's dog. He loves her greatly, but he is now in assisted living and cannot care for her any longer. Bessie is a sweet, funny, playful, affectionate dog. She loves all people. She is used to going to Doggie Daycare once a week for a good workout and some fun, and plays with the other dogs quite well. her only character flaw is that she stresses out if left alone in a house, and will chew on things if so, so crating her when leaving for any length of time is very important, but she takes well to her crate.
