"Bella" a/k/a "Bella GG" or "Garage Girl" is an inquisitive and alert two year-old lab/beagle/border collie mix found by an animal lover who heard her panting coming from under the truck in his garage. Lured out by food and water, the frightened and exhausted lost 40 pound pup slept for most of the next three days. Once revived, her foster family discovered they had a little "Nancy Drew" in their midst. "Detective Bella" thoroughly checked out her new surroundings, room by room. She even sniffed every scented candle at her eye level. (Lavender, from the Rice U Farmer's Market, was her favorite:-). Outdoors Bella, like Nancy, continues to look for "clues," content to sit quietly, watching everything; even leaves falling from the trees fascinate her while she listens to the sounds of birds, squirrels, sprinklers, lawn mowers and neighbors chatting. She is great in the car and looks intently out the window, wondering "Why is that person in the other car, at the stoplight, laughing at me?" Cute as a cupcake and graceful as a deer when she runs, Bella is a happy little girl with a sweet spirit and zest for life, reminding her foster mom that happiness is about appreciation. Bella is grateful for all the small things in her life from watching the sun rise and set to getting a belly rub, to doing a good "sit" and waiting for a pat and a treat. She is house trained, learns quickly and is eager to please but still puppy-like in her energy and enthusiasm. Bella would be eternally grateful to find a Carolyn Keene with patience and understanding about her curiosity and instincts to explore everything around her and to grant her unconditional love. Bella is currently recovering from heartworm treatment so will not be at this week's Rice University Farmer's Market, but please come by, between 4-7pm, and schedule a home visit with our four-legged Nancy Drew - "Bella".
