Please, welcome Bella :)
We rescued Bella this past Friday. She is a ten month old Golden Retriever and has been very abused. My daughter's next door neighbor had her and would beat her for digging, jumping up, if she didn't come when they called her...just anything or nothing at all. I went to visit Friday and when I heard all the commotion I asked what was going on. My daughter said it goes on constantly. I went over, rang their door bell and asked "her" what was going on. She said something like oh this stupid dog, blah, blah...I asked why she has her and she said she can't find anyone to take it off her hands. Well, push came to shove and she turned her over to me. We are now the proud parents of eight furbabies, five rescues and three Boxers. Bella is now an inside dog with a lot of issues, sorry to say, but we are working through them one at a time. She is scared stiff of the doggie door but we are tackling that one first. Actually she is scared stiff of almost everything! I thank God I have such an understanding husband. I could probably rescue an elephant and he wouldn't care.
The good thing is she is very healthy. She came with a clean bill of health. Current on all shots, heartworms, worms. I took her to our Vet with her records and she checked out.
