My all time favorite category is Adoptable Dogs. I love getting the chance to help a dog find a forever home as well encouraging people to consider adoption first. I’ve featured a lot of great dogs, but Bella has undergone an amazing transformation! She lived in Mexico as an undomesticated dog, fending for herself as best she could. Thanks to Jen Bergren from Fetchlight Pet Lifestyle Photography for sharing Bella’s photos and story!
From Coronado CARES: “Bella lived in the wild for years. She was pregnant and was taken to the only shelter that would accept her, in Baja, Mexico, where she gave birth to 8 puppies. Bella was in terrible condition after the years of living outside and fending for herself. Coronado CARES coordinated Bella’s transfer to San Diego and into a home with a dog family. This is the first time Bella has experienced even the most basic things: living inside, a regular routine that includes living with other dogs, a bed, or toys. Bella didn’t understand any of it, including wearing a collar or being put on a leash. Most of us rarely hear about a dog so under socialized. And Bella transformed. Her foster humans and foster dog family have helped her to face the world with more confidence. Bella is such a loving dog, she can’t wait for her foster parents to come home and shows her joy by wagging her whole body each and every time. Bella is looking for a forever home that shares her love of long walks, romps at the dog park, swimming at Fiesta Island and a home where she can show off her awesome high jump (this is undoubtedly her doggie Olympic event). Bella has made huge strides in foster care. Bella is currently attending dog training classes where she is able to train with a group of three dogs. These classes will continue to help Bella socialize with other dogs and trust her humans.
Jen volunteers photographing homeless animals and had a session with Bella soon after Bella came to the United States.
From Jen: “Bella did amazingly well during her photo shoot. I wasn’t sure if it would just be a first meeting or if she would be comfortable enough to let me photograph her, at the Coronado Ferry Landing. After slowly moving close to her without any bags (aside from the treat bag!) and the camera, I tossed some treats in her direction, put the camera on the ground and put treats on it, and generally just let her settle into me being there before trying to take any photos. Bella loves treats, so this was a good strategy!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how incredibly AWESOME Bella’s foster family is! Every person who fosters pets is a hero in my book, and these two have really helped Bella blossom into a wonderful dog. Its amazing if you think about how many people have helped Bella so far: the people in Mexico who brought her into the shelter, the shelter in Mexico, everyone in Coronado CARES, the vets, and Jen. It would be great if you could add yourself to the list by sharing Bella (or adopting her!)
I am participating the Tuesday Tails blog hope hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs. This is a blog hop that features shelter pets. Please follow the links and share all these adoptable pets.
