Arrival Story:
My daughter is Autistic, and we figured that one of the best things we could do for our family was adding a dog into it. My husband and I had been talking about it for awhile, the timing just had never been right. We knew that adding a puppy would be too stressful for everyone, and we debated about big dogs and little dogs. We had actually settled on purchasing a beagle, when the current owner of Belle contacted me. She told me that she had a wonderful 3 year old female cocker spaniel who was in need of a new home because they just could not find enough time in the day to care for her anymore. They had just had a new child, and became foster parents to other children, and a dog was just no longer fitting into their lifestyle, but she wanted to make sure that we were ready for a new responsibility. The two of us emailed back and forth for about two days, and after about 10-15 emails later, we had come to the conclusion that she would bring the dog over for us, for a couple of hours, and see how well she fit in. Those few hours had us hooked. She melted our hearts, and my daughter became attached to her almost right away. She loves watching her run around and play and loves mimicking her when she howls. Two weeks later, we made the full purchase, and Belle was added to our family permanently.
