My human heard about a little Crested who was in trouble. She had been rescued from a puppy mill and the rescue was looking for a very special family to be her forever home. Because she had lived in a basement in a crate her entire life, she didn't know how to act around humans and she didn't understand this great big world.
Chinese Cresteds are a funny lot; we have a unique outlook on the world. When we are babies we need to be exposed to lots and lots of different things; if we miss out on that then we sort of close out the world and its difficult to break through our shell. So this girl had some pretty big behavioral issues that was preventing anyone from adopting her.
My human has quite a bit of experience with dogs. Long before me; she had a Canadian Kennel Club sanctioned kennel; breeding and competing with rough collies. And in those years she got to work with and meet lots of other breeds. So my human contacted the rescue and to make a long story short I got a sister.
My name is Betty. My human named me for an amazing human lady who does so much for animal rescue; and I hear she is a pretty good actress too; Ms. Betty White.
I have a spunky sassy attitude which has earned me the nickname Sass.. better than someone else's nickname - "cough - Toot - cough"; not pointing any paws Herman!
Since coming to live with my brother, my 2 half brothers, and my humans, I have done many amazing things, traveled to very interesting spots and met some really cool people. I also have a pretty fantastic wardrobe thanks to my human's former business. Herman got to be a big part of that business and I am really excited to be involved in this new adventure.
