Look Who's Sheltering Shelter Pets!


View the Print Media Version online now to enjoy the complete "Magazine Experience."


 Lori and Tom are crazy about Bella.  "She was surrendered by her owners when she was 6 months old because she was too much work," says Lori, "but working with all of our dogs hasn't felt like work, more a labor of love."  Bella is Lori and Tom's third shelter dog and they wouldn't go anywhere else. 



"They've all been wonderful pets who have added their own unique personalities to our family," says Tom. When Bella isn't out hiking or enjoying the countryside with her people, she can be found fetching and carrying her favorite stuffed crab around the house, or chewing antlers.  She is also a frequent visitor to doggie daycare and participates in training classes. "We're working on not jumping on company," explains Lori "thats a little slower to come because she just loves people and wants to greet everyone." Lori and Tom have forged a strong bond with Bella. "We're just crazy for her," says Tom.  And Bella returns that affection with equal enthusiasm.
