Bella | Pet of the Week

By on February 2, 2018 at 12:08 pm


Bella is a young lady full of energy who is just simply happy! She loves to be outside and run. Her favorite thing is to play ball — well, fetch the ball and carry it around the play yard.

Bella would be great for a family on the go and that could take her with them. 

Bella prefers to be the only dog in the family. 

She is two years old, 35 pounds, and a catahoula mix. Visit Bella at Helping Strays today.
