After moving house, we found our black dog, Bella, scared in a ditch and trying to escape.

When we managed to get her out and clean her up, we called the Regional Animal Protection Society (RAPS) to see if she had an owner. She had no tags and no collar.

RAPS put us in touch with a man who lived nearby in a trailer. When we met him, we gave the dog back to him.

After a few days, he called me and told me he’d taken a job up north and wouldn’t be able to care for Bella full-time while up there. He asked if we would be open to taking her for two weeks at a time while he worked.

We thought about it and decided that either we wanted to take her full-time or not at all. We told the man but he didn’t respond right away.

The next day, he called us back. We weren’t sure what his answer would be. 

“If you would take her, I think she would be better off with you, at a farm, with another dog there. Just let me come by and see her if I’m ever in town."

Of course, we agreed to this arrangement. That’s how we adopted Bella, who is now two.

Melo, our eight-year-old yellow dog, had been rescued from the SPCA prior to our adoption of Bella.
