She likes her mom-human best, and after that likes everyone in family.

She likes everything and everybody - EXCEPT another dog in our house.

Favorite Toy:
We don't encourage toys because she gets jealous and has attacked another dog for getting close to her toy.

Favorite Food:
Betsy eats ANYTHING except bananas. She loves it all.

Favorite Walk:
Walks anywhere are good, but also runs beside the bike very well.

Best Tricks:
She's a "fetch it" dog and will bring dropped items, or anything to get attention.

Arrival Story:
I adopted my Plott, Betsy, from a shelter to be a companion to a pit-mix. I had no idea what breed she was, but everyone (including vets) believed she was also a pit-mix. I didn't think so, and the longer I had her the more convinced I was that she was not pit. I finally discovered this breed and she is a perfect fit (except her goofy ears). She is hardy, tough, playful and lovable, and I'm so glad I have her. She is so loyal, she is a great watch dog, and I think she'd be a great guard dog if the danger was obvious. She's a snuggler, except at night when she believes she is on guard. Betsy is very strong, opening cans and eating all the food out them (and never cuts herself.)
