From Donna of West Point, VA

In October of 2011 my life was in chaos. My marriage of 26 years was ending and I was in the process of moving into a new home. One day I was just looking on the internet during my lunch break and stumbled upon the Petfinder site. I was scrolling through the animals and suddenly this little face appeared. She was so sweet looking and something about her eyes just drew me in. I called the shelter and came in to meet her that afternoon. She was a 4 month old fuzzball named Bella and we bonded very quickly. I knew that this relationship was meant to be so I completed the application. A few days later I received a call that I was approved - I was so excited! I went and purchased all kinds of things for her and couldn't wait to pick her up. I feel like we both needed each other and we are both starting on this new journey together. She is an awesome companion. She gets along well with my son's dog and they are the best of friends. She loves to play and is rather quiet (which is great since I live in a townhouse). She's also smart and always seems to know exactly what I am saying to her. Of course she's young and we've had some issues with accidents and getting into things she shouldn't but overall she is wonderful. She is my best friend and I love her so much. I can't imagine my life without her in it.
