Meet Bella!

Bella is a very sweet, quiet and petite 7 year old chocolate lab that was turned in to DLRR by her owners.  She loves to be with people and wants lots of TLC.  Bella gets along well with other dogs, cats and children. She is not crazy about swimming, but will get on the pool steps to cool off.  She loves to play in the hose water.  She is trustworthy in the house for long periods of time and knows how to use a dog door.  She walks extremely well on a leash and rides well in the car.  She has a skin condition called Alopecia which causes hair loss.  The vet thinks it may be diet related.  We have her on a good quality dry food and already she seems to be getting more hair growth.  The hair she has is very soft and silky.  Bella does not show any signs that this skin condition bothers her.  Her owners said that she is afraid of storms and wants to be in your lap for security.  We think she would do well as an only dog or with another dog in her permanent home.  If you are interested in a very calm and loving sweet girl and are willing to give lots of TLC, please give us a call.
