Critter Chronicles: Bella-Prison Graduate


Looking for a nice laid-back dog? Meet Bella! She would like nothing more than to be by your side and get lots of belly rubs and pats on her head. She knows her basic commands, has great house manners, and is easy on a leash. Miss Bella graduated from the Grafton Correction Institute last year and was trained in obedience, basic commands, manners and proper leash walking. She was then adopted. Unfortunately, she has returned. Bella needs to live in an adult household or one with children 13 or older. Bella just doesn’t want to be bothered with younger kids. She’s fine with other dogs but does not like cats. This friendly girl loves to go for walks and is quiet in her cage. Other than some arthritis in her back legs she’s a healthy girl. She’s a great find and will make a terrific companion pet.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.
