Dog of the Week: Bella

Julia D Dog of the Week


My name is Bella and I am a gorgeous Boxer mix. No kids, cats or dogs inside my house, I could get jealous, territorial, or protective.  BUT, I’m great going on walks – not dog aggressive and I love every human, big or small, that I meet along the way.  (I’m a kisser and I will even try to kiss strangers!)  My best friend has neighboring dogs and when I visit her, I don’t mind them. I’m about as playful as they come.  I love, love, love to fetch a ball, so get your throwing arm ready!  But don’t worry if you get tired, just have a seat, because I will always return the ball right into your hand!  I’ll quit when I get tired, but I’ll throw the ball into your lap when I’m ready to play again. (I’m sooo smart!  And housebroken!  I’ll whine a little so you’ll know that I need to go potty.)

I’ve been living in a kennel/shelter for years and my best friend is worried about me.  She knows that I get the best care possible (I’m a shelter favorite – everybody loves me), but I want to be in a home!  I light up like a firefly when she comes to take me to her house, but then she sees the sorrow, sadness and depression in my eyes and body language when she takes me back to my kennel. Please save me.  I will be your loving best friend for life.
