Introducing Betty White

Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do. – Betty White


This is Betty White Hooker.



A sweet senior without teeth, she joined the Hooker Horde on Friday, August 15th, 2014.


Originally named “Daisy,” she was dropped off at the shelter in Spanish Fork with her three sisters. Her previous person sobbed when he left. With colon cancer, he could no longer care for his furry family.


The Adopt Me Society rushed to rescue the four Maltese and tried to adopt them out as a foursome. Then, they tried to send them out in pairs. Finally, the sisters went solo. But, Daisy was left.


For almost seven weeks, Daisy lived in the boarding facility. It was not how she was accustomed to living.


In addition to being toothless, she is deaf. Therefore, even before we met, I re-named her Betty White.


When we met, she danced and pranced. I scooped her up. Compared to the rest of the horde, she is tiny.


She snuggled into the soft bed and rode shotgun all the way home.


Like her namesake, Betty is an alpha. She walked right in, jumped up on the sofa, and settled on the back cushions.
