Has a Special Need

Bella was one of the sweetest girls you would ever meet. When she came to DRoH in 2009, she had a bad case of heartworms and the damage was so bad that we weren’t sure she would survive. But she kept hanging in there and after 7 months as a foster and just days before Christmas, she was adopted to a wonderful family in Katy. Their love for Bella was instant and lasting.

This past summer Bella started to have some health issues and her family fought to find out what was wrong. It was only after her passing on Thanksgiving Day of 2012 that her family learned that Bella had cancer.

Here’s what Bella’s family had to say after her passing:

“Bella was such a beautiful and amazing little dog. With all that she was going through she never whimpered, not even once. We thank you for bringing Bella into our lives. It was a short time but the time was filled with so much love. We all miss our Bella so very much!”
