Senior Spotlight: Queen Bella!
My name is Bella, but you can call me Queen Bella. I really like that better because my owner always treated me like a queen. He would give me special treats and the softest beds. He really did treat me like royalty.
But then he died. His granddaughter and her family took me in for a while. They have Great Danes, and for some reason, they kept looking at me like I was a treat. I was afraid they were going to play a game of football and I would be the football.
So, I packed my bags and my 39 pound, 9 year old body into the car and the granddaughter took me to rescue where I would be safe from the giants and I could be around dogs more my size.
I have a perfect underbite, as you can see from my photoshoot. I have one eye that doesn’t see very well, but it has been that way for a long time and I am used to it. I have always loved everybody and everything—unless they want to make me play football.
I am at the vet clinic for my hugs, checkup and spa treatment and then will be off to my foster family. I can’t wait to have a new home. I know there is a wonderful family out there that would be the perfect match for a cute, older gal like me.
Queen Bella’s Recent Update: I have been doing well in foster care. I love the two-legged people. They take good care of me! I have some deep folds in my face and they apply medicine daily to keep them from getting infected. It only takes a minute and makes me feel so much better.
I also have some allergies, so I get medicated baths from time-to-time. My allergies have been getting worse, so they started me on some allergy meds and dressed me in this awesome Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue shirt. I don't look happy to be dressed up, but I assure you, I am.
A few things you should know about me:
1) I love cats! I love to chase them and might try to eat them, if you let me ... although we're trying not to test that theory.
2) I love other submissive dogs! But I don't care for the bossy lady Tilly. She tends to want to fight when I pick on her. I fight back and it becomes a "thing," so the foster 'rents keep us separated.
3) I am SWEET AS PIE and I LOVE kids! Guess I should have started with that.
I am on the older side, but when I get going, I still have a ton of spunk in short bursts! I love to be loved on and I am perfectly content as long as I have a bed. I LOVE dog beds, maybe more than my humans. In fact, I will make anything that is remotely soft into a bed.
So, long story short, I would love to find my forever home to live out my golden years. Do you need a perfect, laid back, sweet lady like me to complete your family? I sure hope so!
