Bella was spotted in Abaco by the island rescue team.  Her condition was very grave and we knew she only had a short time to be rescued or suffer the fate of so many pups abandoned or stray in the heat of the islands.  Without hesitation our founder Lynne Nikolopoulos opened her arms and heart to help this gentle soul.  Bella was weak, in pain and couldn’t even hold her frail body up on her 4 fragile legs.

Since then Bella is enjoying her time out of quarantine and getting use to her foster family. Bella has a long road of healing and trust to humans.  She is making incredible progress to date.

Socializing and leash training will follow.  Bella never soils her crate which she loves. Bella has never barked once. Bella will be a perfect pet for a family with older.  She does well with other dogs from what we can tell so far.  She would do well in a quiet home with another docile pet.

Bella has never known how to be a puppy.  We have estimated her age to be approx. 6 months old.  She has already struggled in life for food, water and shelter.  She was shunned by all but not anymore.  Bella has been rescued and we’ve been very gentle with her slow recovery.  Trust is being built everyday with new hurdles being crossed.  It always amazes us how these lost souls on the street can be rehabilitated into wonderful family pets.  Bella will be one of those soon.

Any support would be great appreciated as we want to get Bella fully vetted, fixed and into her forever home that she greatly deserves.
