Belle is a rescue dog, emphasis on the word "rescue". She was found abandoned (or lost)and starving in the woods in southern Va., a friend of mine came upon her while hiking and couldn't bear the thought of leaving her behind. She was so frightened and distrustful that it took him over 2 hours to capture her but perserverance paid off. I adopted her but it hasn't been smooth sailing. Belle definitely has some major PTSD and shows signs of having been abused but with me she is a loving, sweet, loyal companion...every evening she crawls into my lap for some snuggle time. After 5 years she is just now beginning to allow some of my neighbors to pet her...but only if I'm by her side. She has her companion, Dolly, to help her brave the big bad world. I'm so happy to be able to give Belle a safe and loving home. The one thing I'd love to know about her though, is her breeding...any guesses? Update 4/10/11..DNA testing has shown that Belle is primarily Chow Chow w/some German Shepard, and also less than 10% each of Beagle, Sharpei, Rhodesian RIidgeback and Siberian Husky. Thanks for all your input and kind comments!

Belle looks just like our girl who is a lab/chow mix, and ironically named Bella! There is definitely some lab in Belle, and I would say maybe some shepherd as well.

Hard to tell about a breed. She is undoubtedly a charmer. So glad you took her and gave her a forever home and took the time to give her the time! May you both have many more happy years together, filled with love!

What a happy ending for Belle! Love how she is looking back at the camera! What a happy face she has! Thank you for adopting her & showing such patience! I, also, had taken in an abused, abandoned dog. Lots of love & patience was involved but only had her for five years before she passed away. I truly wish you all the very best in your future together!!

Belle is very pretty she reminds me of the chow mix my dad rescued when I was a kid. Aspen was a love but very wary of strangers. What DNA testing company did you use?
