Bella is a 31 lb tan beagle/yellow lab mix, 5 years young and in great shape. She is a very affectionate girl who bonds quickly and is everybody's friend. So-so with other dogs. She came from a Los Angeles shelter, where she had been an owner turn in. Tries to get into food.
Here is her incredible story - she had a grapefruit sized hernia hanging from her belly. It was her uterus pushed through with a mummified puppy inside! First time for everything.
She is good with our big pack up to a point - sometimes smaller dogs annoy her, but I think she would do fine with a submissive companion. She adores her people and we are deeply in love with her. A MUST SEE dog! Great companion!!
We'll get some stellar photos up soon as we can. Volunteer photographer? Our super one can come on weekends and does so many other things for the dogs....we always need more dog-loving volunteers. Students off for the summer - no one writes a better letter of reference and/or recommendation than B&B.
Are you my furrever family?
For further info on the adoption process, please visit our home page and check out the "Adopt a Dog" section where very thorough instructions await. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micorchipped, and fully vaccinated before adoption; they have been wormed, bathed, socialized, walked daily and much loved; each adoptee leaves with a leash, collar, and all medical records.
The beauty of coming to our Apple Valley sanctuary is that you can see all 90+ dogs! No more weekend mobiles—only special events. Maybe if there are enuff appointments, we could see you in El Monte or Orange County or nearby. Email your application and ask for more details!
Beagles & Buddies must find ways to raise money so we can continue saving dogs. Your tax-deductible donation keeps our rescue kennel operating!
