- Black lab
- 10 years
Hi, hi, hi, hi! My name is Bella, and I am a 10 year old lab that is sooo excited to meet you! After being confiscated as part of a cruelty case, I found myself at animal control. I was riddled with an awful skin infection, double ear infection, and I was covered in fleas. Young at Heart transferred me into their program so I could get the care I needed. After lots and lots medicated baths and antibiotics, my skin is no longer painful, my coat has grown back all soft and glossy, and my ears are no longer a bother. However, my ears will never be a "one and done" deal, and will require cleaning and weekly medication for life. Not that I ever let all that get me down. Nope, not I! Even with my skin raw and my ears aching, I always greeted everyone with butt wiggles and a smile. I am such a happy girl. I love rifling through my toy basket and asking volunteers to play fetch, stretching out on the couch, and going on walks - which I do very well on! I get along with other dogs; I mostly just want to play, play, play. That can be a lot for some of the grumpy older dogs, so I’d be a much better match for another playful pup. I really need a home with a happy go lucky playful dog like me and a fenced in back yard. I'm a bit too much for smaller kids, but would do well in a home with older ones. I’m house-trained, and I already know sit and shake! I am eager to please, and am responding well to my training at the center. Despite the grey on my face, I truly am young at heart, and I am the absolute sweetest girl. I can’t wait to make you and your family the happiest!
