The first 6 months of Belle's life started out pretty rough. From what I was told, our local humane society manager found her on some older guy's property: malnourished, living in a horse trailer with her brother, and covered in feces. The collies and about 20 other dogs and many other animals were taken from the owner and brought to our humane society in Oct.
Unfortunately, the animals were tied up in a court case which took 7 months to be resolved. During this time Belle was unable to be adopted. But luckily, I was volunteering at the shelter, so I got to spend some time playing with her and eventually was able to take her into foster care in late Dec. along with her sister, Georgie, who came with me in Jan. At first Belle was afraid of everything, (especially the stairs), but she learned quickly and turned out to be such a friendly, lovable, and energetic dog. Other than the fact that she is very small for her breed, you would never be able to tell that she was treated poorly as a puppy.
When the time came for the collies to be adopted out, I couldn't let her go; so, I made her a part of my family. I know it was misfortunate for Belle to be treated badly, but it worked out to both of our advantages because we found each other. I can't imagine life without her and I love her very much!!! :)
Hello! I'm Belle and I am a very happy and energetic dog!! I love playing with my little sister Georgie and I love taking long walks! My favorite thing to do is to be with people and other dogs. I live with my human mommy, my sister, Georgie; and three other dogs: Bear, Duncan, and Yogi. I love them all very much and am so happy to have a family who loves me!!
I just gotta be me!

Wow! I can't believe I actually have my own space on the web! This is so much fun!! And my mommy is even helping me out by typing what I tell her in this diary. ;)
Today is going to be a great day! I am going to the vet's office this afternoon to have those itchy stitches taken out from my surgery last week. My mommy says that I was spayed so I can live a healthier, happier life. I guess it's working...I'm happier now than I've ever been!
So, much has been happening since I've been adopted last month. My sister Georgie and I came to live with a family and 3 other dogs; I've been to the vet to get a check-up and to be spayed; I got a new shiny tag for my new collar called a license; I got a bunch of new toys and supplies; and I was put on heartworm medicine and treated for something called whipworm and hookworm (those nasty worms were making me very sick). Now I feel so much better and I'm so happy to have a home and a family that I don't think life can get any better.
Anyway, I guess that's all I have to write about for the moment. Right now, I'm off to play with my sister and cause some chaos. I know I get a little carried away when we run around the house, but it's just so much fun I can't help myself!! ;)
