FemaleTerrier (Unknown Type, Medium) /Dachshund


Bessie is a ~6 year old 11 - 12 lb pooch who looks like a Terrier / Dachshund mix. See her in action!

We rescued Bessie from a high-kill shelter where she was out of time. Bessie's foster mom says "Bessie is just delightful. She is responding to the name Bessie, and is very friendly. She puts her little paws up on my knee to greet me, and loves having tummy rubs. She is completely house trained. She is great with my husband, and is happy for him to pet her. She is just a wonderful wee soul."

Bessie gets along well with some dogs, but not so great with other dogs. She may prefer to be the Queen of the Castle in her forever home.

Bessie is being fostered in San Carlos. Her adoption fee is $50. She is spayed, dewormed, up to date on vaccinations, and just had her teeth cleaned in March 2017! Her adoption fee will be discounted to $25 for senior citizens.

Shelter Description

Tailchaser Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill, animal rescue organization based out of the Bay Area, CA, dedicated to rescuing cats and dogs (and sometimes more) from shelters where they are in danger. We believe in removing barriers to adoption and educating pet owners and potential adopters about responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay / neuter, positive behavior training and good nutrition.

We are a foster-home-based organization and we do not have a shelter or physical location that adopters can visit. All of our rescued animals are cared for by volunteer foster families in their homes. This allows us to get to know the animals better, and helps us assess what type of home environment they will do best in.

Shelter Driving Directions

All of our rescue animals are cared for in individual foster homes throughout the Bay Area, CA and are available for meetings by appointment only. If you are interested in adopting one of our cats or dogs, please email us for an application and let us know who you're interested in meeting.

Areas Served

We are based out of San Jose, CA
