Dog Gone Doggie of the Day for Sept. 20th

Bella, the Dog of the Day
Name: Bella
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female Breed: Cane Corso, Pitbull mix
Home: Levittown, New York, USA
I adopted Bella from the Town of Hempstead animal shelter. She came in as a stray, so nothing is known of her original home. I previously owned an American Staffordshire terrier and was familiar with the bully breed. In my opinion these breeds get a bad rap. Bella is such a joy to have living with us! She loves to play with her squeaky toy and run like a racehorse around our backyard. She also has perfect manners and is very gentle with people. (Don’t let her looks, or her breed’s reputation fool you.) She is a great addition to our family. I am so glad to give Bella another chance at a wonderful life. Bella and I wish more people would consider adopting from their local animal shelter and save a life!

On a personal note from me, Lady A, this is a beautiful dog. Unfortunately the breed has a terrible reputation. My daughter has raised Pit Bulls for years. They are beautiful, loving dogs and it is a shame they have the bad reputation. My daughter and I get in the pen with them and all they want is to be loved and the only attacking they do is with their tongues (they lick you to death, lol!).
