This sweet girl has been let down her entire life. Being an unaltered pit bull in the south can be a death sentence. And when she became pregnant she was surrendered to a high volume shelter in Mississippi. She had a large litter of 11 puppies, however, only 1 survived. Bella Amy was a fantastic mama to all of her puppies and now it's her turn to be cherished and loved.
Bella quickly became a shelter favorite with her wonderful personality. But she is more than ready to leave shelter life behind. The workers say she is a sweet and loving girl and it's hard not to love her! She has attended doggy play group at the shelter and done well. Before arriving to the shelter she was housebroken and we expect with structure she'll do well once back in a home.
Help make this girls happy tails come true. She deserves it!

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
