Annabelle's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Annabelle's Story...

Arrival story: Bella was thrown from a moving vehicle in a malnourished condition and suffering from a skin condition known as demodex mange. After five months of continuous veterinary treatment and as of March 4, 2008, Bella is considered fully recovered from this demodex mange condition. Thank you to everyone who generously donated towards her care and treatment - we are eternally grateful as is little Bella.

Approximate age: Annabelle is about a year old now and weighs approximately 42 pounds.

Personality: Despite what Annabelle has been through in her young life, she definitely has NOT lost her spirit and will to live. She is a happy, playful, energetic and friendly puppy who aims to please. She has already stolen the heart of her foster mom. She is wonderful with adults and children, and gets along great with the three other dogs in her foster home (one small and two medium). Bella has already learned "sit," "shake," and "lay down."

She is a loving, affectionate, and well behaved little girl.

Forever home:Bella would love a forever home where she can play with other dogs and/or children. She would thrive in an active, loving, and caring forever home.

If Bella could talk, she would say: Breed discrimination: in the 1970's it was German Shepards, in the 80's it was Dobermans, in the 90's it was Rottweilers , and now that we are in 2000 - my kind.

Many of you get scared when you see my kind walking down the street, but let me tell you something - we are fabulous companions! We are extremely smart, love our people and will be protective of the children in the neighborhood. There are many superstars of our breed that have a story... See?

Your neighbors might be scared when you bring me into the neighborhood... It's a natural instinct for people who are not educated. Hey, if we could talk, we'd tell them differently, but we rely on you to spread the news. We are not dangerous, yet we are smart enough to feed off of the energy that humans give us. If you walked into a room full of hostile people that didn't know much about you, you would probably react poorly! We do too - we want everyone to like us as much as we like them!

Please don't consider adopting me if you won't exercise me, train me, and educate people about my breed. If you are willing to work with me and the people around you, I'll be the most loyal and trustworthy companion you have ever had. It's worth a shot - I love my foster family, but I want a forever home!

Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175, or $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age. Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. With few exceptions, we show our adoptable animals on Saturdays from 12pm - 3pm. Please see our home page for details. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

If you would like to sponsor Annabelle and help cover the cost of her vet treatments, please consider making a Paypal donation in her name. thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Annabelle, a Northville Shar Pei/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Northville, or seeking a Shar Pei/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Northville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Shar Pei/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
