My name is Bella which is Italian for beautiful! :-) I am jet black, gorgeous and full of puppy life! My name could have been Smiley because after the first seven months of solitary confinement on a chain I could have lost my zest for life but I haven't! I'm so glad I was rescued! I always have a smile for you!
Now I am a nine months old Dachshund and energetic, sweetly affectionate and my foster mom says I am so smart. I've learned to "sit" on command after one week. I had a cat as a friend and I swoon at being able to run and tumble with other dogs and I am good as an only dog chasing balls....as long as I have a master who loves and adores me just as I will them! :-)
