She is like having a brand new puppy as she was never housebroken... so far here only one accident and that was because I didn't get to the leash in time. We just love her! The cat, Miss Paws isn't quite as impressed. She puffs up and hisses well! They have been nose to nose and so far no blood so that's a good sign!

    She is my first anniversary gift from my husband. He asked me what I wanted and I said, "a dog," and that's just what I got!
    what a cutie pie !!

    Good luck, I am sure she will be a good pet.
    I wish I would have changed my dog's name when I adopted her, that might have helped her to stop old bad habits. I thought about it but, I didn't. After a 1-1/2 yrs. she is now a pretty good dog.

    She looks just beautiful. So glad she found a loving home. One of our Goldens was a rescue too, and she is the most adorable girl. Congragulations from me and my three Goldens, Jonah, Sam and Anna.

    I love your puppy! What a sweet little kissible face.I have 2 rescued Silky terriers..now 16 years old. We got them when they were 6 1/2. One (Katie)came from a home where the kids grew up and left and the mom worked long hours and did not want her. She was delighted in joining us. Angel was the beloved dog of a young couple who had a baby the was alergic to dogs. She came to us totally bewildered. She would run to a baby carriage today. She sat by the door and waited for her family for quite a while. She loves us dearly now but it took a lot of love and time. Today, "the girls" are so happy and my grandchildren adore them. I came from a home where my parents owned a Collie kennel and only registered dogs were considered worthwhile. I now will only ever take a rescued animal. They are so loving and deserving.

    She will be a loyal friend forever for having saved her from abuse; even if it was verbal, not physical, the pain can be so overwhelming. Love abounds forever.

    What a sweet baby and such a face!! Love those eyes, too. Thank you for saving a life and giving her a new name. All of our pets are resucues in some form and they are the sweetest bunch of critters you ever want to meet unless the kitten is on a tear or on high on catnip!! Rescues make the best pets, IMHO.

    Congratulations Momma! She is adorable. I would advise lots of patience and use of a clicker and loads of high value, small soft treats. Sounds like this is your first dog, so I would suggest taking her to some puppy and obedience classes (as much for you, as for her). She will also benefit from taking her lots of places to meet lots of dogs and other people. The more you can socialize her, the better (just take it slow and start with quieter places with few people and build up)
    Those 'special' dogs can be challenging sometimes but definitely worth it. You will be rewarded a thousand times over!!!

    Watch out for the Husky part of her, they can be real bone heads. I know my Aussie/Husky mix is a real bone head. A mind of her own and she isn't afraid to use it to ignore us.

    Bella is a beauty. You will have many years of love in front of you i'm sure.
