Bella, an 8 year old shepherd, and Luke, a 6 year old lab, came to us when their owner lost their home. They were quite heartbroken, but at least they still had each other. Since Bella and Luke were not spayed and neutered when they arrived, our vet went about performing the routine procedures on them. Unfortunately, she found a problem with Bella. Several mammary masses were found on Bella and removed but sadly, they were malignant. This sweet and gentle lady has cancer. The cancer does not require treatment, and may not have any drastic affect on her anytime soon, but it's there, and it now makes it even more difficult for her and her best buddy Luke to find a home. Bella could have 6 months or she could have 6 years, we don't know. But she should live out the rest of her life in a loving home with her pal Luke. Bella is sweet, calm and gentle, while Luke is equally sweet, but more active and playful than his friend. They are so well behaved and get along great with everyone they meet. They will both win you over instantly with their warm, loving personalities, and bring so much joy into your life. If you can offer Bella and Luke the very special home that they are hoping for, please come in and meet them anytime. File#26774 & 26775 10/17/16
