Poor Bella. I hope that she can be saved and someone will give her a loving home. I don't know anyone who lives in New York, or surrounding area, but my thoughts and prayers will be with Bella. Sadly noted, Catherine.

Catherine, I am so sorry! It's stories like this
that just break my heart. I don't know anyone in
New York state, or the region.
Many prayers to the God/Goddess for Bella,
that she not cross over Rainbow Bridge before
her time.

You guys are messing with me so much...LOL I cant beleive I am doing this...
Is she good with other dogs......I could give her a good inside home but I have 1 male and 1 female also. She would also have to come to Oklahoma. I couldnt afford too much as far as an adoption fee or travel fees but I could give her a loving home with good care.

I was ready to email and call everyone i know in that area... with tears in my eyes (my Shadow crossed the Rainbow Bridge 1yr10mths 1wk ago & my friend is keeping what could be his much like my Shadow, she is just smaller and named Shadow how karmic is this! BUT I am disable until I have an award and a place of my own I am not allowed to have her! I live with my mother as I wait for the SSA to do its job,its been and is a fight.) Then I will get my Shadow girl asap!
But I screamed & cried when I found out Bella has a home now!! My faith in humans has been restored. Again the Care 2 family comes thru!
Noted & I couldn't be happier
