Hello world! I’m Bella and I’m very pleased to meet you. I know that I’m a very lucky girl to have been saved by my foster parents and believe me, I’m not taking anything for granted. I’m working my hardest to be a wonderful well-behaved girl, with excellent indoor and outdoor manners. I’m also great at showing my gratitude to the people who have been kind to me. I love cuddling with people, treats, car rides, and napping on the couch. I’ll be happy to soak up all the attention that you want to give. I have a very gentle disposition and get along well with my foster K9 brother and sister. I tend to be a little shy toward new people I don’t know, but once we are properly introduced, I’m ready to be best friends. I’m what is known as a cuddle-bug: I don’t need to be right next to you, but when I can, I’ll be right there. If you wanted to treat me to a perfect day, I’d start out with a nice romp in the yard, or a brisk walk, followed by a nap next to you. If you’re looking for a medium-energy dog, with super cuddle potential, then I’m your girl. My foster mom was asked to describe me in 3 words, but she had to add in an extra word: gentle, cuddly, beautiful and happy. Yep…that’s me… Bella.

Age: 1.5-2 yrs.
Weight: 50 lbs

Bella will be enrolled in an obedience class at Peace Love and Dogs. Her lessons are transferrable, should she be adopted before her course is completed.

Our Adoption Process...

ADOPTION PROCESS

We work hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:

1. Fill out and return our adoption application form. 

2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or 
previous animals. 

3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in 
adopting. 

4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family 
member. We may suggest you bring your other pets to this meeting. 

5. If the initial meeting goes well and both parties agree to move forward with the 
adoption, we will make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family 
members - human and furry 

6. If, at the home visit, both parties agree that the home is good match for the adoptable 
pet, we will move forward with the adoption. (Please note, some dogs may require several “visits” to the home in order to feel comfortable and transition smoothly into their new environment.) 

7. We ask the new family to have a crate, food, toys, treats, etc. ready before the home visit. 

8. At the home visit we will review the Home Visit Checklist and Adoption Checklist, review and sign the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee ($200 for dogs, $75 for kittens, and $50 for cats) and take the Happy Tail photo. 

9. That same volunteer will check in either by phone or email to make sure things are going well and to answer any questions you might have. Please respond in a timely manner (1-2 days) 

10. 7-14 days after the adoption, we will collect the medical records for your adopted pet and send them to you. We will also update the pet’s microchip record with your information.
