I'm only 5 months old, and I came all the way from California! My short life hasn't been so hot. I came from a breeder that sold me and when my new family found out I was deaf, I was returned to the breeder and destined to rot in not so nice living quarters. A rescuer in CA felt I deserved better and started her search to find me a new place to lay my head. That's when Lisa with Lucky Dog Rescue got a hold of Almost Home Boxer Rescue; they love the underdog and committed to take me on the next transport.
After a few tries to move me across the state line, I met a wonderful man name John from Tundra Shepherd Rescue/AZ. He took me and started the long drive back to Phoenix. On the way back we had some car trouble as the transmission conked out on the Suburban. John had to stay overnight in Blythe, CA while waiting for repairs. John opted to stay at the local Motel 6 that allowed me and our other hitchhiker, a Dalmatian, a place to stay.
We ended up in Phoenix safely, and I met my new foster family. They have other dogs and cats here, so I'm having a GREAT time! THANK YOU to all who donated a name. Our volunteers voted and my new name is BELLA!
