Bessie’s happily ever after wasn’t always in the cards.
Bessie’s Happily ever after wasn’t always in the cards. She came into our family from the French Bulldog Rescue Network which is an incredible resource for Frenchie’s in need of care. Bessie’s original name was Lyanna. She came to the French Bulldog Rescue Network from a puppy mill in Florida. After enduring years and unhealthy amounts of puppy litters, Lyanna (Bessie) was discarded in the streets, where a good Samaritan found her and brought her to a local shelter. She had an upper respiratory infection, secretions from her excessive birthing, and extreme anxiety. It was uncertain if this petite pup would make a full recovery.
Thankfully, WeGo Doggo co-founders Terry and Lori Williamson saw her on the Frenchie rescue website and took action!
“There wasn’t a question in my mind that this was our dog”- Terry.
Lori shared the same exact feeling. “We drove 5 hours down to Naples that same day.” The day that Bessie’s happily ever after became a reality. That was also the day Bessie got her new name! Lori was raised on a farm, and fondly remembers her dad yelling, “COME, BESSIE” to all the cattle when it was their dinnertime. Now, Bessie the dog gets the same call and comes bounding happily. Her favorite activities include snack time, romping around with her brother and sister Huckleberry and Star, and taking long luxurious naps in the sunshine. While she still takes medications for her previous skin conditions, she is otherwise healthy and happy.
