Bella was a neighborhood stray in Lebanon and sadly a victim of hate! Her story started off simple. She was known in the area of Jbeil and loved by many. She was taken care of and looked after from a distance by people in her neighborhood. She minded her own business and did no harm and yet cruelty and evil found a way into her life. Through no fault of her own and to everyones surprise Bella was shot. She was found early in the morning drenched in blood, disoriented, paralyzed and unaware of what just happened or why!

Bella was rushed to the vet. The two main pellets are an inch away from her spine. Bellas story spoke to us and we included her in the large group of dogs we brought over from both Morocco and Lebanon prior to the CDC import ban.

Currently Bella is paralyzed. We are hopeful that as her body heals she may regain some mobility. For now she has been fitted with a wheelchair that will adjust as her body heals from her horrific injuries. Although she has been treated horribly by humans Bella remains affectionate and sweet. Shes a love that wants nothing more than some positive human contact. Shes great with other dogs and has a calm energy that would make her a wonderful addition to almost any family. She does have minor resource guarding with other dogs around food but is easily corrected. Bella is adoption ready and would love a caring family of her very own. If her story speaks to you as much as it spoke to us apply to bring her home. If you are interested in adopting a Marleys Mutts please fill out an application at
