Bella's mom says: We adopted Bella a little over a month ago through a greyhound rescue agency. Sweet, playful, and submissive, she never had it in her to be a racing hound. Her favorite pastime is sleeping (often on her back), but running laps around the backyard comes in a close second. Periodically, she'll screech to a halt in front of me or my husband and drop into a play-bow, inviting us to join in the fun. Thanks to a combination of Bella and Pacific Northwest rain, our yard is now one big mud pit. One of Bella's most charming characteristics is that she's a grinner. Being greeted by a big dog with bared teeth intimidates most people, but she's not being aggressive, she's just happy to see you!
