Belle is our newest foster. She came to us 2 weeks ago from a lady who posted her and another Iggy boy (who she decided to keep) on Craigslist. She couldn't afford both of them and kids plus another on the way. But thankfully she knew it was the right thing to let her go into rescue. Belle had her first ever vet appt yesterday (all went well) and she is schedule for spay on Tues. Belle is now listed on Petfinder.

Belle is very sweet and loves head rubs, tummy rubs, etc. She is about 1 1/2 yrs old and was probably hand fed people food. I think we finally got through to her a little bit by feeding her boiled chicken mixed with good canned dog food. On occasion I sneak in some dry food, but she always seems to eat around it!! She's a little shy of men at first, but comes around quickly with patience and of course chicken. She adores my hubby and wags her tail so fast when she sees him I think it just might fall off!

Here are a couple of videos of her and some pics.

What a cutie Adina. And how fun to see her playing so joyfully with Chloe. I must say that the little pugster has certainly got a great sense of fun to try to get into a game with two whilrling, racing, dancing IGs.

Yes, the puggy likes to try and get in on the action from time to time. Chloe would prefer it, but the puggy just doesn't care to play that much anymore - she'd rather chew on a bone and catch some zzzzzs. big_sleep.gif

She looks absolutely fine to me on the video. She must have been loved so much by ex-family. I 'm sure she will find new home soon but I hope it comes as soon as possible. Please give tons of kisses and hugs for me.

  • 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.

She is a cutie. It looks like she is having a blast running around with Chloe. I like how your pug jumped in on the action. smile.gif
Hope she finds a forever home quickly. Bless you for fostering.

Yes, she is. She has some blue on her muzzle and then some blue hairs sprinkled on her back.
