Bella and Luke are as close as they come. This beautiful couple are looking for a new family to love and care for them, and let them be together for the rest of their lives. Bella, an 8 year old shepherd and Luke, a 6 year old yellow lab, were turned in by their owner who lost their home. The pair were quite shaken up when they arrived and who could blame them, after spending their lives in a home? But once they realized they were in good hands, they settled in and began making friends. Like many married couples, Bella and Luke are quite the opposites. Bella is more reserved, quiet and calm, while Luke is more active and energetic, and always ready to go. They have both had training and are obviously housebroken and will sit and offer you a pawshake when asked. Bella walks casually on a leash while Luke tends to pull a bit so he can check out the surroundings and make sure everything is ok for his bride. They are both a little shy when meeting new people but once they get to know you, they're sweet and friendly. Bella and Luke have been around children their whole lives and were always fine with them and they don't seem to mind other dogs. This sweet and soulful pair are hoping for a happy home where they can stay together forever. File#26774 & 26775 10/17/16
