Hello, my name is "Nova" most people that know me just call me "Momma Dog."
I came to my current foster home with 11 newborn babies on may 5th. My wonderful foster mom that took me loved me and my large family! I am estimated to be around 5yrs old and my DNA came back Lab, husky, Yorkie, and mixed breed. My mom calls me a Red Dirt Special.
I'm not really sure what to think about humans, however this new human and her litter have been pretty nice. When we came into her home we were mistreated, scared, and full of parasites. They loved us anyway. Her eight-year-old child would read to me and my puppies every night. It took me almost 3 weeks to trust her and to understand that I wasn't going to be abused. It still takes me a few weeks to trust anyone new. I love attention and I love just to lay beside you. I love to be loved. I like quietness but I also love children. I like resting alot but I could go for a walk, I promise to be very gentle on the leash. I don't quite understand cats but I love other dogs. I'm kind of a lazy couch potato and I may take your space. I do like to eat june bugs and that grosses some people out but I can't help it as I'm a little wild in my ways. My foster mom keeps saying, "she doesn't think I've ever been in a home." Being crated is extremely fearful for me, and car rides make me panic. I do have some scars inside and I have some scars that show. I promise you if you just give me a little of your time I will love you for life. I am extremely loyal! My foster mom says that there's a family out there somewhere for me but until we find them I'm welcome to rest my head there. I would love to find a family of my own.

About The Bella Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

Every year thousands of animals are euthanized or sent home to die because the people who love them cannot afford the cost of veterinary care. Stray and abandoned animals have even fewer options when they are brought into a clinic or veterinary office with no owner to pay for their care.

At The Bella Foundation, we believe that every animal should receive the best possible care regardless of the owner's ability to pay. When an owner brings an animal into a clinic for care and cannot afford the cost, the attending veterinarian can contact The Bella Foundation for assistance. If assistance is given, the owner must agree to volunteer at least 8 hours of their time at a local animal shelter. Stray or abandoned animals are cared for with no stipulation attached.

The Bella Foundation takes the placement of animals in homes very seriously and our goal is to do everything possible to match the right animal with the right animal. Our adoption application can be found on our website.
