Health Issues: Bella has occasional bouts of belly troubles.  Keeping her strictly on her current hydrolyzed food is a must.  She’s been doing well with no real episodes recently.  She’s emotional and very sensitive and big changes can bring on an “attack”.  She has Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis and it’s completely under control with her current care.  She does have food allergies too which are under control as well.
These issues are easily managed.


She’s perfect!  Bella is amazing!  She’s well-behaved and knows some commands like sit, stay, come, and paw.  She’s a beautiful, leggy lady with so much love to give.  Her deep brown eyes are so expressive and will melt your heart.   Bella loves to curl up on or beside you.  She does think she is the size of a lap dog! She’s so sweet that you’ll welcome her right up and get some snuggles!  She’s the sweetest with her two feline foster brothers.  She’s protective of them and looks for them throughout the day.  Bella has meet some older kid friends and was so happy!
When she first came to ABR she was scared and anxious.  When left alone she would majorly stress out.  Now she’s become a more confident girl after being in a loving foster home and learning she’s safe and will never be left again.  She does love her human company and would love a home where someone is home with her most of the day or maybe works just part-time.
Bella will meet you at the door with loads of happy and tail wags.  Her tail wags so hard she hits herself in the face LOL and will catch you with it too!  Ouch! That tail does hurt a little but we don’t want to discourage her happiness.
Bella Sue is in Philadelphia, PA and waiting for you!
