Bessie came to Saving Grace in February 2019. Someone reached out to us because they had witnessed Bessie being abused. She is incredibly fearful, especially of men. Her abuser was a man, and just the sound of a man’s voice has a visible physical effect on Bessie. It’s truly heartbreaking. She is very sweet and desperately wants human affection, but she is so afraid. It requires a lot patience and sitting with her, and a soft voice to get her to come to you. She would greatly benefit from a foster home. She has done well with the dogs we’ve introduced her to so far. Please contact us if you’re interested in meeting Bessie.
