Pet of the Week-Bella

“Bella is my name, destroying my Pup Box squeaky toys is my game. Mom says I demolish my toys just as soon as I get them, but  they always last at least a couple of days! My favorite time to chew on them, and make lots of noise with them is late at night when everyone in the house is asleep. I love turkey jerky, pringles, chasing my light up ball, and spending time with my family.” 

Bella is a two year old pitbull and she belongs to Nataleigh Myrick of Goshen. Myrick named her dog Bella because when a pup, the shape of the dog’s face was very similar to a bell pepper. Bella loves to play hide and seek. She almost always hides in the same closet and if noone comes to find her, she will howl to remind her family to come look for her. Her humans called her a joyful, fun loving  part of the family, the most amazing dog in their eyes that has brought them much love and happiness.
