The Story of Bella

This poor senior tripod has been at a local shelter for almost a month.
10-year-old Bella arrived as a stray dragging one of her hind legs. The leg had an old injury that did not receive medical care and was too far gone; it was amputated as soon as possible.
Remarkably, Bella doesn’t let her missing limb slow her down one bit. This resilient girl embraces life with such enthusiasm. Her favorite pastime? Playing with toys! Whether it’s chasing after balls or engaging in a spirited game of tug-of-war, Bella’s spirit shines through. She’s an intelligent pup who already knows commands like sit, down, and shake. Plus, she seems to be impeccably housetrained and keeps her kennel spotless. Bella has also shown great compatibility with other dogs, dog-savvy felines, and children.
We’re introducing you to Bella because we believe she deserves to spend her golden years in a loving home. But before we can make that a reality, we need your help to find her a foster family. By signing up to foster Bella, you’ll provide her with the care, support, and warmth she needs during this transitional phase.
Bella is already spayed, vaccinated, and eagerly awaiting her new temporary or long-term home. At 40 pounds, she could benefit from shedding a few pounds to ensure her remaining legs remain strong and healthy. When joining Ruff Start Rescue, Bella will receive a thorough examination from our dedicated vetting team, ensuring she receives any additional medical attention she may require.
We kindly ask for your support in making Bella’s journey a success. Your donation today will not only sponsor Bella’s time in our care but also contribute to the well-being of countless other local dogs who will soon be joining our rescue.
Together, let’s provide Bella with the love, comfort, and security she deserves in her twilight years.
