Meet Bess!

Hi there, my name is Bess. I’m a 5-year-old Irish Wolfhound cross. Some of you may recognise me as this isn’t my first time here at the centre. I have sadly recently come back a second time. I’ve been very fortunate enough now to have experienced two great homes but what I’d really love is a permanent spot to settle down. I’ve heard things about ‘third times the charm’ though so maybe this time will be different!

There are a few things to update you on since I was last at the centre. Surprisingly, even though I'm a gentle giant, I tend to get a bit jittery around smaller pups - go figure! Because of my size and strength my new owner will need to do some training with me on the lead. I like to go where I want so a little direction and guidance will help me stay on the straight and narrow! When I spot a dog from afar, I may seem eager to dash over, but the reality is that they make me very nervous. My one and only request is to keep me away from those furry tail-waggers and in the company of my preferred species- humans!

I am a very chilled lady, given my BFG nature I love every person I meet! However, I am a big girl so potential adopters should take that into consideration. I must confess, I tip the scales at 53kg! but whose keeping track? In my mind I’m just a little puppy. I could certainly live with older children, but the tinier humans might get knocked over (not intentionally I swear!)

This girl adores tummy rubs and cuddles more than anything. If you can provide a loving forever home with plenty of those, please register your interest in this gentle giant!
