This morning we brought home our newest addition, a pitbull puppy named Bella!
Bella came from our area Animal Control - she had been there in hopes that her owner would claim her - when they didn't after the 6 day holding period, we decided to make her a part of our family.
Most Animal Control facilities have a maximum holding period, and if a dog is not claimed in that period they are at risk of being euthanized... Bella was the sweetest dog we have ever met and wants nothing more than to be loved - the thought of her being put down was unbearable, so we decided to rescue her.
I urge you to check your local Animal Control, Humane Society, and Rescue groups next time you are looking for a new pet - these dogs are always at risk of being euthanized - especially breeds like pitbulls.
I would like to introduce you all to Bella, you will be seeing a lot of her from now on :-)
