Belle the Beauty

We had just lost our 13 year old German shepherd mix to old age and decided to go to the shelter to see if we connected with anyone. We hadn't gone 5 kennels before coming across a skinny, frightened lab/pit mix. The workers didn't know much about her because she had just come in the night before. They said animal control workers have seen her running around for weeks around the town fending for herself. We had an amazing connection with her immediately and had to have her. We brought her home and named her Belle! She is so smart, knows so many tricks, absolutely loves her daddy (they have a bond like no other) and has adopted a dachshund puppy and raised him up as her own (they are inseparable). Unfortunately, she shows signs of former abuse. She was very skittish and freaks out over even the slightest change. She has grown so much from when we first brought her home, she doesn't have as much of a fear of the things she use to. We are working every day to encourage and teach her. We are so happy to have her in our lives and constantly look forward to the antics of our beautiful Belle.
