Bella's Tale

Bella’s Tale

I had thought long and hard and decided to have another dog and I wanted if possible to give a dog a home that really needed one rather than buy a puppy, I wasn't sure if this was an option as I have a 9 year old son.

I started my search on the rspca website where I saw Bella's photos doing agility at the Rspca dog show. I had never really considered a staffie, my previous dog was a collie however she looked lovely and I showed her to my partner who agreed and we arranged to go to the kennels to see her.

When we met her she was extremely bouncy and liked to hang of the end of her lead rather than walk nicely on it, but she was such a lovely character and it was love at first sight. So we reserved her and eagerly awaited our home visit!!

We were so nervous but I don't know why Peter and Margaret visited us and they were so lovely we were immediately at ease  and felt comfortable to talk to them about how we planned to care for Bella and fit her into our family life.

Just over a week later we prepared for Bella to come home, she was only 18 months old and had been found abandoned in a property and then spent a considerable time in kennels so we didn't expect Bella to be housetrained or know basic commands - we were expecting a challenge!

We could not of been more wrong Bella was quite the opposite. She settled right in from day one, she was surprisingly house trained, and responded really well to basic commands especially when a treat was on offer, after the initial excitement she walks on her lead without biting it and the only things she eats is her food and her toys.

Bella is just a delight we have all fallen madly in love with her and she loves us back, she especially likes men, curling up on my partners knee and licking him to death is her favourite pass time.

If you were like me and never considered owning a Staffie, please think again Bella is the most kind and loving dog I have ever had, she even loves the post man and every person and dog she comes across whilst out on our walks. She is truly the most loving dog and has really fulfilled our lives.

Thank you Rspca without u we wouldn't have our perfect pooch Bella xx
