Meet Della

"I just don't see how I possibly could have come from the way I entered this planet, to where I am now.... if there had not been angels along the way."
- Della Reese

My name, is Della :)

You could say you've been touched by an angel... but I'm actually a lab-mix puppy girl! I have a heart of gold, and a tale to tell.

I'm a seven-month-old bundle of joy, tipping the scales at 45 lbs of pure puppy love. Life is an exciting adventure now that I have been rescued! I was saved from an outdoor cage in the woods that was too small, where my sisters and I were left alone without consistent food, or any shelter, for our entire lives.

Well, those days are yesterday's chapter; and my "Part II" is being spent smiling in a foster home full of love, snacks, and creature comforts that I never could have dreamed of! My happy-ever-after is next, and guess what?! It's with you :)

I am a shy, blushing wall-flower! I am heaven-sent in my kennel, it's my safe space where I am quiet as a church mouse. I am still a little zig-zaggy on the leash, but getting this down more every day! I am also a star-pupil of potty-training and almost have it mastered!
I'm a curious but bashful beauty. I love other dogs, and would prefer a furry pup-sibling in my forever future! I have paid no mind to the kitty cats in my foster home, and meet people with pink in my cheeks and a shy bat of the lashes!

My forever haven will need to have a fenced-in yard, so I can romp and grow the way that tiny cage from my before never had room for my sisters and I to do. No apartments for these gams!
I am a sweet, loving, patient, and eager-to-learn little girl, who's ready to make this home-sweet-home gig, a full-time fixture... forever!
