Meet Bella at Paws for the Law!

Bella is six year old Newfoundland.  She was rescued at age three.  Once she met her adopted Mom and Dad, she knew she was home forever.  Bella loves people of all ages.  She is a dual certified service dog and therapy dog.

Bella has over 250 volunteer hours.  She has represented Pawsibilities Unleashed at Heroes Night Out, Fort Knox, and EKU, as well as many other venues.
  
Bella spends the majority of her time at Noe Middle School doing Animal Assisted Therapy with 6th graders and providing de-stress relief for anyone who requests it.  She loves to see her red bandana and hear Mom say, "Ready to Work?"  Her eyes light up, her tail wags non-stop, and her body wiggles happily!
 
Meet Bella at Paws for the Law on Wednesday, April 16th!
