~ The Good Time Girl!
Bella is a Yellow Labrador Retriever who came to Healing HEART Sanctuary in August 2009 when she was about three months old. When she had been six weeks old, a virus hit her neurological system causing her to be unbalanced and fall off of a couch, injuring herself.
It was never fully determined if her back legs, which do not bend, came from the virus or the fall; but either way they are as straight as poles.
Bella used a cart/wheelchair initially but eventually learned to get up and walk/run using her back legs together as one, kind of like a pogo stick. She LOVES to run and fetch her toy! It can be any toy, as long as she picks it! Bella still has a wheelchair that she uses when she’s going to be on rough surfaces that could scrape her feet, but 99% of the time she’s good all on her own.
