I had recently lost two Golden Retrievers and my father insisted I needed puppy. He wanted his daughter back. So together we went to AWS and Bella was in a kennel with her brother. She was a “southern” dog, frail, skittish, and sick at the time. I waited for her to be treated and well enough to be brought home. Today she is outgoing, smart, funny, and a happy member of our family.
