8 years White with black Terrier mix Imagine jumping into the car with your beloved person, excited to be going on yet another adventure. Then, without warning, your person stops the car, hands you over to a stranger, gets back in the car, and leaves…without you. This is exactly what happened to Bella, our beautiful and stately 8-year-old Schnauzer mix. How can someone do this? Sadly, it happens all the time. …and so began the journey to help Bella rebuild her life, to help Bella relearn the joys of being a dog, and to help Bella trust the strangers she meets. More importantly, Bella is learning that loving someone doesn’t have to hurt. It’s taken three months, but this lovely lady is finally beginning to enjoy our company. Whether it be a rousing game of fetch, a long walk, or some cuddling with kisses initiated by Bella, she is realizing that humans aren’t so bad after all. …and we have promised her that her next car ride will be to her final forever home where her new family will continue to help her overcome her understandable anxiety. Bella weighs 23 pounds and is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. So.., why don’t you head on over and be the family that helps us keep our promise to this very gentle spirit named Bella?
