BELLA – 4-YEAR OLD SHEPHERD/LAB X – looking for her furever home
Meet another one of our current PELUSA FUND – “BELLA” who is a big girl with just as big a heart! Bella came into rescue with multiple health issues including being 25 lbs over-weight, incontinent, severe allergies and in desperate need of double hip surgery to correct her severe hip dysplasia … this girl was in so much pain she was acting out aggressively when we first placed her with her foster family and their balanced pooch. We started her on meds to help her with all of this and her aggression slipped away as the pain was managed. She has now had hip surgery thanks to our Pelusa fund and the skills of our Veterinary team at Murrayville Animal Hospital. She enjoys being with people and her bright and happy personality will continue to shine through as she is well on the road to recovery under the expert care of her foster mom & dad. She is enrolled in aquatherapy to help her journey to full mobility. Her foster family’s dog and Bella have become fast friends so a home with another fun-loving, balanced dog would be a bonus for this sweet girl!
She will need a home with little to no stairs and a family that can be home most of the time. Bella enjoys lounging around on the patio, exploring new areas with her nose and adores rolling around in the yard. She enjoys playing with toys and balls.
Bella has been with children from the ages of infant to teens and loves kids. She has also lived with felines.
