Please say hello to Bella. This little girl is only 2 years old and has already seen more than most dogs 5 times her age. She started life out as a 'breeder' for a large-scale back yard breeder. That breeder decided to retire and sold his 'STOCK' to a lady who could have done the right thing and saved the dogs from a life of filth and back to back breeding, but instead, she, too used them as money-makers.
This poor little girl's parents were both dapples, making her a double dapple. Though she does not have the typical double dapple markings, she does have one of the main characteristics that many double dapples are born with. She is missing one eye. It is a genetic defect caused by the lethal double dapple gene. Unfortunately, people who are only out for a dollar don't really care about the health of the dogs they breed- as long as 'pretty colors' bring in money.
Thankfully, her missing eye is her only problem. Once the fleas and filth were washed away, we found that she is other-wise healthy. Given her rough start, you'd think she'd harbor ill-feelings. Instead, she is extremely happy and eager to please. Her blind eye doesn't slow her down at all. She adores toys. She loves other dogs, children and anyone who will give her an iota of attention. She is NOT house-broken, as she has spent her entire life in a cage outside.
Can you give Bella what she's never had? Can you give her a warm bed, healthy meals, flea and heartworm prevention? Can you give her all the love her heart can stand? If you'd like to give these things and more to Bella, please fill out an application. She's waiting for someone to sweep her off her paws.
