Bella | Pet of the Week

Bella

If you are a committed single person, THIS IS YOUR LUCKY DAY! Stop everything and check me out!

I am an exuberant, gorgeous, affectionate, wonderful catch of a dog (I could go on and on, but certainly you can see that I am amazing) and yet I sit here at the shelter. Why, you ask?

Well, you see, I quickly fall in love and become very protective of my person. It happens every time. BUT, there’s such an easy fix… I just need to find someone who lives alone and has no plans to change their lifestyle. It’s as simple as that!

I won’t check your pedigree, your bank account or your credit score. I’m only interested in your relationship status! And, of course, the size of your heart.

I’m perfectly house broken, I love love love snuggles and belly rubs, I like to exercise and run, and I’m looking for my dog-savvy soul mate. I know you’re out there. I’d be super happy if you would share this “personal ad” with anyone you think would be perfect for me.

Beautiful Bella is a two-year-old pit bull terrier mix who weighs 50 pounds.
