Bella is thriving at her home, with Patti and Dale Gribow.

Our beloved standard poodle had recently gone to heaven, when a furry bundle of fun, caught my eye while I in a meeting at La Quinta Coffee House. I literally left the meeting and greeted Willy, an Australian Labradoodle and his human parents. I ‘fell head over heals’ with the breed. As fate would have it, I was told that Charl had 3 puppies available for adoption.

Well, my hubby Dale and I hightailed it over to Shadow Mountain Labaradoodles the next day. The absolutely precious little girl jumped up on the chaise lounge next to me during the visit, and with her head between her paws longingly looked up at me. End of story.

Bella, Princess Bella, or Boo Bear as we affectionately all her, blesses us every day with puppy kisses, smiles, yes she does grin, and joyful play. Our family is in love forever and always! Thanks Debon and Tessa for letting us adopt your baby!
