Bella is an owner surrender that we are trying to save from going to our high kill shelter in Texarkana, AR. Her mom has taken a traveling job which keeps her on the road the majority of the time. Her dad has the new duty of working full time as well as being mom and dad to their children. He has said Bella must go because he cant take care of her and the household!

Bella has gotten along well with and played with the other dogs at her foster mom's house. Foster mom has large and small dogs, both male and female. Bella does well with foster mom's kids (she has older kids) and does well with the neighborhood kids that come over to play.

Bella sits, shakes, opens handicapped accessible doors to let herself in and out to potty. Bella likes to dine on toilet paper and socks so she will teach her new owners to be neat and tidy- at least with their socks! Bella loves car rides and gets very excited when she sees her leash come out because she loves taking walks on her leash. Bella is skittish of men (barks) but warms up in couple minutes!

She is a great dog that has met with unfortunate circumstances through no fault of her own. Her ideal home would be an active, loving home with older children that included lots of walks on her leash.

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
