Bella: Abused and Left to Die in an Apartment

  • Breed: Shar Pei
  • Name: Bella
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Adult

Sweet Bella was severely, physically abused and then abandoned when her owners moved out.

When Bella's previous owners left, the apartment manager inspected the unit only to find Bella laying on the floor. She was on her stomach with her legs splayed out from her body. He called animal control immediately.

When animal control arrived, they, too were in shock at what they found: a horribly abused Black Shar Pei, who was whining in severe pain. Her poor body was covered with open wounds, she was thin and starved. She couldn't even muster the strength to stand. The compassionate workers of animal control picked her up and carried her frail body to the truck. The featured picture is Bella a week after getting to the shelter. She has had a lot of vet care for her unfortunate condition, but she needs more vetting, which include blood work, an examination of her legs causing constant pain, and entropion surgery. Additionally, she needs a very special diet, medications, and medicated baths. She has a long road ahead of her, but we are by her side, and look forward to the beautiful future that awaits her in a forever home.

Please support this beautiful, loving girl and help her receive the veterinary care she deserves. She can be healthy and happy with your help! 

Hugest of thanks and Happy New Year from we at Rescue Teamsters!
