The Newest Member of the Family

Introducing Bella! 

Bella is a 6 month old Jack Russell Terrier/Hound Mix. We met her this week at the South Lake Animal League in Groveland, just south of Leesburg. She was brought to the no-kill rescue there last week from another shelter in Nashville, Georgia. 

We've been talking about getting a dog for over a year. This is especially Wesley's dream and he has asked Santa for a dog for the last two Christmases. We weren't quite sure if we were ready for a dog though and wanted to make sure we were ready for that commitment. After a lot of discussion on our road trip this past week, we felt like we were finally ready to move forward. The South Lake Animal League Rescue was highly recommended by several church families who had also found their dogs there. Bella had only been there for a few days when we met her Friday night. We filled out an application for her and went back Saturday afternoon to finalize her adoption after we were approved to be her family. 

She spent the weekend getting used to the family and to our house. Bella is energetic but she is also super duper affectionate and loves to petted while sitting right near you or better yet in your lap.
