Wallys Doggie Rescue
Meeting Bella Louise I think I was as nervous as she was. My second foster was known to be a little bit grumpy at times, dog friend selective, slow to trust and had a dislike for cars. The two hours drive home was nervy but I knew we would manage. The moment she jumped out of the car at home and took her first few steps, looking back and giving me the look, we both knew it was our gotcha day although we kept it secret until Christmas as her surprise. Her history was now history and after two weeks when she jumped through my open car window the bond only grew and grew. She came everywhere I went, at first this could be heartbreaking like when she walked on a tarred road with me for the first time and I could see her tremble but again that is now history. Proudly Bella now helps social train the foster pups by the hundreds. She formed such a bond with another adult foster she was even given permission to adopt her. My pack, my Bella if only she could learn to sleep down my bed not across but the cuddles areworththesacrifice.
