Bella was a sweet black and tan and our very first rescue. We adopted her in April 2000. She was found by a lady walking her dog in the woods. Bella had been left to die, had no hair due to thyroid problem, and was very sick. She was surrendered to the rescue group and she recovered. It took a while to get her trust us, this poor girl had never received love and attention and would tense up when touched. With time and patience and she became the queen of the house. She was a character and had quite an attitude; she bossed the other dogs around. One of the things she liked to do was to flip her bed over and sit on top of it. During a routing dental it was discovered she had a tumor in the soft palate. Her age was estimated to be 15 and she passed in November 2008. We miss her attitude and her quirky ways!
