What a sweetheart. So glad to hear about successful rescues of formerly troubled dogs. From the look of her head in profile, her general stature, and the short-but-fluffy coat, I'd guess she's got some Akita in her. But who knows, she's beautiful wherever she came from.

Adorable. x

She's a beauty - thank you so much for rescuing her. I see Akita and maybe Australian Cattle Dog. Could be lots of things in the mix - would depend a lot of how she acts, does she nip at heals/try to herd. Is she pure black or is there ticking in her fur - hard to tell but fun to speculate!
Jan 14, 2011 toby'S
she has wolf blood for sure. so noble and cute.. wish her the best :)

She is beautiful. I'd agree with some Akita. Thank you so much for rescuing her and helping her with PTSD. You are all lucky.

Thank god for people like you! How can anyone abuse an animal is beyond my understanding! I've also rescued a starving labrador off the street, and was also abused, and probably beaten. Was scared of anything and everything. But now has a loving and caring home. So thank you again! I'd say, yes, there could be some Akita in her, but also possibly a Spitz. She's gorgeous, in french: Belle! really beautiful. Many happy and healthy years with her! xoxo from Australia! :)

How beautiful! Belle might be part chow and lab. She looks a lot like my dog. I hope you have many happy and healthy years together! I am so glad you rescued her! Much love, many biscuits, and tons of cuddles for Belle!

Not sure of the breed but she is a beautiful girl. Bless you for having the kindness and patience to make her part of your family!
Jan 14, 2011 Hillcat
She is lovely! I'm thinking Akita/Huskey/Lab mix. You and Belle are so blessed to have found each other!

She is a real Beauty. I'm glad her sad beginnings turned into a very happy life.:o) Kudos to you for opening your heart and home to her. OX OX OX

This pretty girl looks happy now! THANK YOU for all your loving patience with her! I hope you enjoy many happy and healthy years together!
Jan 14, 2011 lc.lovesanimals
Wow, what a beautiful dog and thank you for taking care of her. Shame on the person or people for abusing her. It's nice to know she got a second chance. I agree, she could be a mix of black lab and chow. Maybe even a little German Shepherd?
Jan 14, 2011 Puppy Power
What a distinguished looking girl! Thank you for taking her in and making her apart of your family! Many years of love & blessings!
Jan 14, 2011 drakes' granny
Belle is beautiful. Looks very healthy now. I'd guess some German Shepherd and Chow maybe. What does your vet say? Shame she had to go through a bad time of it but she is lucky now. Your friend found the perfect person for her for sure. Takes lots of patience but she is worth it. Keep loving her.
Jan 14, 2011 Missmilamae
Thank you all for your kind comments about my precious Belle. I am reading them to her as she sits by my side at the computer, lol! Rest assured that this precious animal will enjoy a safe, happy, loving lifetime!
Jan 14, 2011 duettists
What a shame that Belle went through such a rough time until you rescued her. A long and happy life to her.
Jan 14, 2011 BeautyLover
Belle is such a beautiful girl and thank you for your patience with her (and your friend's patience when capturing her). She looks like she might have some Australian Shepher in her (body-wise) and maybe some Lab???
Jan 14, 2011 Goldenmom58
A good and hearty laugh is the very best medicine. I'm not sure of the breeds but that doesn't matter. Your smile says that you are adjusting albeit slowly to your new life. Don't rush it, take your own sweet time and before you know it, all of your bad dreams will be gone for good.
Jan 14, 2011 ECHOBLIZZ
Bless YOU for giving Belle the life she leads!She IS a beauty...and if she sticks by YOU...then THAT is worht it;s weight in GOLD! Bless you AND Belle! Please give her tons of smooches...!!!
Jan 14, 2011 elliel
She is such a solid strong looking dog. Maybe some husky in her background? She is an obviously gorgeous mix of several breeds. I have heard that having a stable dog around will help a damaged dog learn good behavior and personality traits. Not that your dog is bad in any way. She just needs to heal. I hope she can learn to be at peace and trust others as well. Thank you so much for the love and patience you have given her.
Jan 14, 2011 4 the Dogs
A black beauty indeed! Bella are you are very regal. I'm so happy you have found a forever home.
Jan 14, 2011 border collie mom
She's beautiful, and I love these stories with such wonderful happy endings. Belle is so lucky to have you and vice versa.
Jan 14, 2011 WATERDOG
Very good! I think Belle is a work in progress. It sounds like she's had it pretty rough , thank goodness you found her. As far as her mix, I'd say she's part awesome, and part gorgeous, Cheers!
Jan 14, 2011 Born Free
What a gorgeous girl!! Shepherd and Collie, definitely, and possibly some Chow...really good strong points to her...I can understand the PTSD and I'm very happy that you stuck with her--and that the rewards outweigh the trials. good luck in her future and let us know when you discover what she has in her, okay?
Jan 14, 2011 chelsearosebud
Bella Belle! Black & White. Your black coat looks stunning against the pristine white snow. I am over the moon you "found" your Mom who obviously loves you dearly. Love you, honey.
Jan 14, 2011 mkesj
What ever the combo, she's beautiful. It's great she also has a canine companion. looks like a flat coated retriever /Germa Shep cross.
Jan 14, 2011 GSDLVR
Belle and friend, you are GORGEOUS! Looks like you're having a lot of fun together.
Jan 14, 2011 l944a
Belle is one beautiful and lucky girl. And you are, too. Can't speak to your beauty of face but your spirit is just fine! I rescued a rottweiler/shepherd mix years ago. She was one of the most wonderful dogs I have ever known. You might want to try one of the flower remedy mixes for abused animals. I've had good luck with them. Do a search for flower remedies animal. Bone chance, Belle!
Jan 14, 2011 jonnijones
No guesses but she is a beautiful and handsome dog. She looks like a queen. Thank you for loving her!
Jan 14, 2011 loveheals
Belle is gorgeous! She looks nearly pure Akita. You can find photos of Akitas on the 'net. She is so fortunate to have found you. Wishing you both many years of love and joy together, and wishing Belle relaxation and trust in the world.
Jan 14, 2011 CA puppylover
This is an akita head, surely an asian dog mix of some kind and just beautiful. Well named, Belle!
Jan 14, 2011 Dove
I too would guess Akita. She is beautiful.. Thank you for giving her a good home and lots of love.
Jan 14, 2011 LadyBarbie and pups
What a cutie, as for breed, I do some animal rescue and transport, I'd say maybe some shepherd, husky, akita and chow. I'm sure she has some akita.
Jan 14, 2011 Dane lover
We had Chow/Lab mix that looked just like her. His tongue was a little black and that's how the vet knew he had chow in him. I am actually sending this picture to my family so they can see how much your dog looks like our old Koonoh. Who knows if your dog could be either of those, but I am glad she found a good home.
Jan 14, 2011 Cindylu001
What a gorgeous girl, and I'd guess some Akita too--both from her coat and from her head shape--but you should get a DNA test done on her if you're truly curious. My Tildy (rescued) looks like several breeds, but she's a mystery. I tell her she's all Tildy! Many happy years, lots of treats, and tons of love for this noble girl. Love her name, Belle. You're an angel for saving her.
Jan 14, 2011 Scruffster
Belle, you're a beauty. We wish you a long life with lots of treats, snuggles and good times! So sorry you had a bad beginning, but you're safe now, little one. Wish we could give you a great big hug!
Jan 14, 2011 Critter_Lover
She is a very beautiful dog. I wish you many years of love with her. She looks like there's some Schipperke in her, although she's larger than they are. Rescues make wonderful pets, and they're always worth the effort.
Jan 14, 2011 wall_e
Congratulations! she's beautiful
Jan 14, 2011 lalamcgoo
Belle is a beauty, and I am so happy to know you have taken so much time and more patience than most of us realize to rehab this sweet soul, you are a true dog lover! I am glad she is enjoying life, she may never be a laid back girl but here heart is obvoiusly yours and she has complete trust in you, that gives her more peace than she ever thought was possible. Many blessings and happy days to you and Belle.
Jan 14, 2011 shortyww22
Belle is a Black beauty,my guess on breeds would be either a chow chow akita mix or maybe a chow lab or akita lab.I have a chow mix but he also doesn't have the purple on his that would be my guesses on her breeds.she is Beautiful and I'm so glad that you took her in and gave her a loving forever home.if shes a bit moody toward other dogs and people.then I'd definately say chow.because chows can be something else chow mix chance was terrible in his younger days.he would go after people and always fight with other male dogs.hope you have many happy years together.big kisses n hugs Belle
Jan 14, 2011 shortyww22
Toby's,,all dogs have wolf blood in them.from right down to a poodle clear up to a mastiff.all domestic dogs are related to the wolf.this dog looks like she has alot of akita in her.she is stunning.
Jan 14, 2011 beach dog's mom
Belle definitely has some Akita in her. She's a beautiful girl and a noble spirit. I join with everyone else who is so grateful that you rescued her. Wishing you both long, happy lives and lots of love. Many kisses, Belle.
Jan 14, 2011 furriesrfantastic
Just look at her ... stunning ... just beautiful. Bless your friend for taking the time to capture her and bless YOU for knowing that every puppy deserves a chance at happiness. Even with signs of past abuse, I find it incredible they still find it in their hearts to go ahead and trust another human being. We should have such trusting characters! - I'm sure she has enriched your life in ways you could not even have imagined. Here's wishing you years and years of snuggle time with your beautiful girl!! And if any puppy deserves to be spoiled rotten, it's definitely this baby!!
Jan 14, 2011 pheobe=cute
Belle is really pretty, I love her coat. I'm glad that your friend found her, but its to bad she was left there. My guess is that she has some Akita in her or some bigger dog like that. Have a great life with her!!!
Jan 14, 2011 pelligrino
Belle and her friend look like great playmates! How know's what this beautiful girl may have experienced pryor to her wonderful life now. God bless your friend and you for taking the time to help and love Belle>

Belle is beautiful, whatever her background is.
Jan 14, 2011 kimmerann
shes such a beautiful girl. im so happy that she found a loving home.
Jan 14, 2011 gypsyrobin
She's so beautiful! I see Akita and Shepherd. I had a dog once who also resisted her rescue....turned it to be one of the Great Ones. I had another who had tremendous separation anxiety and, because she did not come into my life until she was two, never truly outgrew those fears. For me, these difficult rescues are what it's all about and all you have to do is love them to pieces. Thank you for rescuing the belle Belle.
Jan 14, 2011 Jose
Your sooooooooooooooooooooooo cuter I hope that you have a great life.
Jan 14, 2011 jasper1
WOW! She is gorgeous! Really beautiful dog. There is a very special place in hell for those who abuse animals. Good to know there are more good people than evil in this world.
Jan 14, 2011 mychiensr1
Belle est tres noir et belle aussi:-). Belle looks just like my Oreo girl. Her nick name is Queen of darkness:-). I just want to cry, when I read about Belle:-(. Thank god for the wonderful humans that rescued her. We just want to kiss you guys (sloppy kisses:-) from mon 5 chiens Mocha, Oreo, Hacky Poo, Chewy and Cookie:-).
Jan 14, 2011 kgpayne13
Awww, Belle, look at you! So glad you found a home where you can learn that people are not all bad. Many biscuits and belly rubs to you, sweet girl.
Jan 14, 2011 goldenlover
The ultimate "Lucky Dog" to have such a kind and patient owner. Good for you. Belle is a very good looking gal.
Jan 14, 2011 Candy&Chloe's mom
Belle is gorgeous! Thank you to your friend for taking the time to bring Belle into a second chance at life and to you also, for having the love and patience to extend to her, she desperately needed love. Like many other writers what so called human can abuse an innocent animal or child, who had nothing to say whatsoever about their arrival on planet earth, is beyond me. This lady is a beauty and I am thrilled that she is loved, cherished and I wish she could read, so she'd know how many people cared about her, despite the one creep who couldn't be bothered. There are more of us for you, Belle than otherwise! Have plenty of lap time and fun, little lady!
Jan 14, 2011 Oliver & Henry's Mum
Belle looks as though she is laughing in this photo. What a beautiful girl. She looks as though she has some "northern" breed in her. I have not yet read the comments but I'm sure there are plenty of guesses. Bless you (and your friend) for rescuing this girl and showing her how life is supposed to and loving. Big hugs from Oliver & Henry, and their Mum, in London, Ontario
Jan 14, 2011 bluegigi
They're both beautiful - Belle is lucky to have her forever Mommy, even though it's been a bit rocky. She has a wonderful home and it shows, she's beautiful, healthy if still somewhat skittish. Hang in there with her - she's worth it - and bless you for rescuing her.
Jan 14, 2011 leia kelly
Beautiful! Looks like she's living the good life now! Thanks for rescuing her!
Jan 14, 2011 lizanne
Belle, Thank God you were found and now have your forever home with someone who appreciates a beautiful dog. No guesses here, but I do know you are an Angel for giving Belle her home. Big Pug Hugs to a Big Bella Girl from Pug Mini Cooper and mom in NY~
Jan 14, 2011 allmyshelties
Belle is stunning! I guess Akita right away from her beautiful head. But it doesn't really matter, she's just perfect. What a wonderful thing you have done by giving her a loving home and showing her such patience and love. I agree with the flower essences. Find someone knowledgeable in this, they can sometime work wonders. And try an animal communicator and Reiki healing. She's certainly worth the effort.
Jan 14, 2011 charlet rocks
great photo
Jan 14, 2011 tzumom
Belle is beautiful, I'm so happy that she has such a great mom in her life. Much praise to you for your loving care.
Jan 14, 2011 Shadowgirl
I agree with shortyww22 she look's like a chow akita mix but then again, who know's. I think one of my dog's is a chow shepard and other people think she is a lab shepard mix. A real beauty no matter what she is.
Jan 14, 2011 coriebe
Belle is truly beautiful. Thank you for all that you are doing & have done for Belle. Wishing you both a very long, happy, healthy life together. God Bless you both. :)
Jan 14, 2011 Kam&Wes
She is so adorable! It is so sad to know that there are actually people out there that will abuse or abandon a dog! You are so kind for rescuing her from a shelter. I bet you are happy you found Belle!
Jan 14, 2011 dianel99
What a beautiful dog!
Jan 15, 2011 Ihave8cats
Her breed? Sugar and spice (that's the PTSD)and everything nice. That's her breed! Thank you for saving her. She'll pay you back with her love.
Jan 15, 2011 Shadow's Mom
I don't know what kind of dog Belle is, but she looks like 100% pure precious to me! Thanks to your friend for rescuing her, and thanks to you for adopting her! May you have many years of love and happiness together!
Jan 15, 2011 iluvk9s
Thank goodness Belle was rescued from the woods and has found a loving home. She is so beautiful! Endless hugs, kisses and biscuits!!
Jan 16, 2011 lookup
what a beautiful girl! thank goodness for people like you.

I'm guessing German Shepher/Lab mix.
May 15, 2011 paugustine
She's a beuatiful dog. She just need love and I'm sure you're giving it to her.
