About Bella:  Bella is a 12 year old pit mix who has cancer…and doesn’t act like it at all. Bella is very affectionate, lively and playful. We’re not sure how much time she has left, so while it may be a long shot, we’re seeking someone very special who can give her a wonderful home for however long that is…and offer love and companionship. Here’s what you will gain…you will be rewarded with devotion, cuddles on the couch, kisses, and the finest friend at your side for long walks.  You will also be entertained as she attacks her squeak toys and plays fetch with you.  This sweet girl has so much love to share and faces every day with joy.  We hope you’ll want to share in that joy.  She gets along with dogs if they’re small, quiet and have a peaceful play style.  We think she’d be OK with cats as well.  Come meet her at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption & Education Center.  You will also be entertained as she attacks her squeak toys and plays fetch with you. This sweet girl has so much love to share and faces every day with joy. We hope you’ll want to share in that joy. Come meet her at our Springfield Adoption Center
