My story

Meet Bella!

Hello, my name is Bella. I'm about 11 years old and weigh about 15 pounds, but I'm working on that. I'm a real good girl with other dogs, and even cats who don't get in my face. I don't need to play with them, and I can happily live in the same house with them! I could also happily live in a house with older respectful kids, who understand that I need time to warm up to them, but cane be spicy at first. I LOVE my 13 year old foster sister! I enjoy when she snuggles me gently.

My kidneys don't function fully, although my numbers on my most recent tests are all pretty normal, but I have an untreatable kidney stone, and deformed kidneys. As a result, I'll need to be on special food for my kidneys, and I'll need to wear diapers, unless my new people don't mind cleaning up little messes. I'm a little girl, so I don't pee much at one time. I'm a real happy little lady otherwise, and I still have enough energy to go for walks and follow my humans around the house. Do you have a little time and for a little old lady like me?

Albert's Dog Lounge is a specialty rescue focusing primarily on senior and special needs dogs.

Our process includes an approved application, reference checks, a homevisit, and then a meet and greet with the dog. Adoption fee is $275. Learn more about Albert's Dog Lounge, our mission, and adoption policies by visiting Albertsdoglounge.org.

Disclaimer: It is VERY difficult even for a veterinarian to tell the exact age of a dog over two years old. From one vet to another, we can get different age estimates on the same dog and they can vary by several years. We are only making an educated guess based on a few factors like teeth, fur color, and overall body condition, but for dogs who have not been given adequate vet care and food, it can be even more difficult. Every dog is an individual, and we do our very best to age appropriately but make no guarantees as to the age of any dog in our program.

Additional adoption info

Albert's Dog Lounge is a foster-based rescue providing compassionate care to special needs, senior, and hospice dogs. ​ Our adoption process begins with a completed application. From there, we will review references and vet records. The next step is a home visit with your family. This visit may be in person or virtual.  At that point, if approved, we will set up a meet and greet with available dogs. All dogs have an adoption fee of $275 for a single dog or $500 for (bonded) pair, unless otherwise noted. Note: Pairs must be adopted at the same time to get the reduced adoption fee.​ -Applications with incomplete information will not be processed. - All current dogs in the home must be spayed or neutered, up to date on rabies vaccination, up to date on DHLPP, up to date on Heartworm testing and preventative. - All cats in the home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on a rabies vaccination or wellness exam. - None of our dogs will be adopted to prospective owners who mislead or fail to provide accurate information on the adoption application and/or the adoption contract. Albert's Dog Lounge reserves the right to refuse adoption to anyone. - You must agree that if you are no longer able to keep your rescue dog for whatever reason, the dog will be returned to Albert's Dog Lounge. The adopter must agree to never attempt to sell or rehome the dog at any point. ​ Our goal is to place our seniors into permanent, loving homes for the rest of their golden years.

More about this rescue

Albert's Dog Lounge is a foster-based rescue focused on providing loving homes to seniors, special needs, and hospice dogs. We help dogs in need from overcrowded shelters and also from local families who are no longer able to care for their pets. Albert's Dog Lounge was established in 2017 with the vision to be the stepping stone to a new life for those dogs who are less likely to be rescued, adopted, or at a higher risk for euthanasia.
