No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Bella! Bella was found scurrying around traffic nervous and panicked with zero trust in people and a tight embedded collar that almost choked her to death. Bella was severely scared of people due to previous trauma, abuse and neglect from whoever she was with before. Bella had to go through rehab to learn to trust and be happy. Her rescuer took months to gain her trust and did her best to show Bella that the world is not a scary place. Bella will nip out of fear so it was very important for the rescuer to take baby steps in showing her what it means to be in safe hands.
It was later known that Bella came from a severely abusive and neglectful puppy mill and was sold to an equally abusive owner who would beat her ever since she was a puppy. Luckily for Bella she was rescued on December 22, 2017, and so far she’s learnt to wag her tail, sniff your hands, walk on leash, being patted for love and enjoy her canine companions.
Now she needs a family who will continue to love her and show her that the world is not a scary place. She is going to need a very specific home who has a lot of experience in dogs and understand that she will need a long adjustment period. Bella needs a patient and understanding home that will allow her the time she needs to trust and blossom into sweet companion. Bella is patiently waiting!
