This is Bellemic, Belle for short. She's 2 1/2 years old and just came into rescue today. She's a sweetie and is getting along with my pack very well. She's very quiet and loves to kiss. wub.gif

All I know is that Belle was born 9/2007 and she was bought by someone from a breeder in KY. I don't know much about what happened with her between then and the spring of this year, but an elderly lady took her in. I know where ever she was living, she lived with whippets prior to coming to live with the sweet woman who turned her into rescue. I don't know the whole story, but I'm gathering that this lady has fallen on hard times and has some health issues and simply couldn't care for Belle. Her friend step in to help her, and has been my main contact. They did try to take her back to the breeder, but they refused to take her back because she had been spayed, which tells me that they are more interested in money than the welfare of a dog they produced.

In any event, Belle has been well cared for, is current on all her shot, and has a lovely disposition. She loves to kiss, and is warming up to my wild pack of characters. My only issue thus far is that I've not been able to have her potty.....inside or out.

I stand corrected, she just peed on one of the girls blankets.....hmmm, hidden message perhaps.....lol LMAO.gif

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Oh, she's absolutely gorgeous. I hope she finds a perfect forever home very soon. Thank you for fostering her.
