The shelter staff was tired of looking at this depressed dog who had been waiting 130 days for adoption. They thought of her as a loving dog just waiting to find the right home. In the eyes of others, she was just a dangerous pit bull. When, after 4 months of unsuccessfully searching for a family, the dog was still at the shelter, the staff decided to do something. A simple gesture had everyone on the internet turning to this beloved dog, and a chance of adoption was on the horizon.
The dog could not continue to live with her caregiver. She went to a shelter
The story of Bella, a pit bull dog, touched the hearts of Internet users. When she arrived at the shelter 4 months ago, she received a huge blow from the caregiver whom she loved very much. Unfortunately, the woman was unable to keep the dog. In the apartment she rented, it was forbidden to have aggressive dogs. Bella, although a loving and well-behaved dog, has been profiled due to the history of the entire breed. Since then, she was stuck in a shelter, and with each day of her stay, the dog’s condition worsened.
Beautiful Bella was one of our happiest and most sociable dogs, but after 4 months of waiting for adoption, she started to withdraw – writes the shelter.
The dog did not deserve to suffer because of the bad reputation of her breed. Despite his exemplary behavior and the sympathy he shows to each person he meets, he cannot find an adoptive home.
Bella loves attention and is a favorite of staff and volunteers. We don’t know why the adoptive parents are avoiding her, because Bella is fantastic! – writes the shelter.
The shelter staff couldn’t leave Bella like that, they needed help
Bella waited for her family in a shelter for 130 days. Despite the love of the staff and volunteers, she was not interested in adoptive families.
Every day the dog became more and more depressed. They knew it wouldn’t last very long and finding a home for the dog became the priority of everyone at the shelter.
We knew we had to act quickly and tell his story, explains the shelter.
Staff decided to post an ad targeting potential pit bull adoptive parents. They placed her paper form next to Bella’s cage.
When they posted a video of Bella and the adorable announcement online, they didn’t expect the short video to go viral on TikTok. They couldn’t have asked for a better fate for the dog who needed all the attention she could get.
The ad with the telling title “I’m Losing Hope” introduces Bella’s character and her story after arriving at the shelter. The dog’s heartbreaking monologue talks about how she waits every day for her human to arrive and how she faces disappointments every day.
I’m tired of hoping and people passing me hundreds of times a day. I try to stay in good spirits, but after 130 days in this lonely cage, I’m starting to think that no one will ever take me.
I don’t understand. I can relieve myself on walks, I am well behaved and like most dogs, I love playing fetch and splashing in the pool. I love even the smallest children, but also grown-ups. I have so much love to give, but I feel like no one wants it.
What’s wrong with me?
The transformation of an adopted dog is moving. There is no trace of the sad dog
When such stories gain popularity on social media, all that’s left to do is wait for someone willing to adopt to come forward. This time, it didn’t take long before shelter staff were contacted by a woman willing to adopt Bella. They had a good feeling about him and it seems that they were not wrong in their judgment.
Bella’s mother told us it was love at first sight. Bella and her new mother share the same optimistic energy and make a great couple.
Bella immediately realized that the woman had come looking for her. In the charming video you can see how the happy dog is overjoyed and eagerly jumps into the new owner’s car. The smile never left the dog’s face. She knew that a happy life awaited her from now on.
