A Fuzzy Tale About A Dog Without One


Bella Rosa for Tail Wagger 222.jpg


Bella Rosa

The following description was written by Katie, 10 years old, Junior ECR Foster and daughter of one of our foster moms:


Chihuahua, Female, about 12 pounds
1 & 1/2 Years Old


Hi, I 'm the lovable Bella Rosa. I LOVE people! I'm a very happy girl. I give out free snuggles and lots of kisses. My favorite is to plant lots of kisses on my human foster siblings. I like to play follow the leader. You be the leader and I will follow! Since I was born with wobbly front legs and no tail, I wag my bum when I am excited. I don't look like every other Chihuahua, but they say "It's what's on the inside that counts!" I have a heart of pure gold, would you please be my forever family?

Think About Fostering!





Over the past year our SAVE Line has received calls that Chihuahuas have been dog-napped out of yards and also out of a car. It is devastating to lose your pet but if you adopt the following steps you are well on your way to keeping your dog safe.


Escape-proof your yard. Fence it and make sure the gate is closed. Consider putting a lock on the gate. Block any opening that is larger than your dog's head.


Never leave your dog alone in a car.


Never leave your dog unattended while you run into a store. It takes only a moment to untie him and lead him off.


Never allow your dog to roam free in your neighborhood. You are asking for someone to steal him.


If you are not at home let your neighbors know if you are expecting people on your property so they can call the police if they see someone suspicious hanging around.


Make sure your dog wears a collar with his ID tags all the time. All ECR dogs are microchipped. Consider a microchip for all your pets.


Take photos of your dog, from different angles that clearly show his coat and coloring, close-ups of the face and any unusual characteristics.


Keep a file of all your proof-of-ownership papers, adoption contract, bill of sale in one place to prove ownership.
