Hello, my name is Bellissima ("Bella" for short). I am a 5 year old purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a recent arrival to rescue from Animal Care and Control of NYC. True to my name, I love all things Italian ... of course, I have indulged in a few too many meatballs lately, which would in part account for my chunky frame. Here I am in my profile shot, licking my chops at the thought of a bit more proscuitto!! Now what's a girl with a hefty appetite like mine to do? There's just no way around it! In addition to securing a new home for myself, my New Year's resolutions include daily power walks and a reduced calorie diet (I gather that there are some great low-cal dog foods on the market that can help to keep me fit and trim). I am a very healthy girl and quite determined to regain my svelte physique, so expect to be fighting fit in no time at all. I have been spayed, microchipped, am current on all shots and have tested heartworm negative. Before going home I will be treated to a dental cleaning as well as to a professional grooming and will be sporting a new leash and collar. If you would like to adopt me in time for Valentine's Day (carrot sticks rather than a chocolate box will do just fine for me), please click here to fill out an online application or email firstname.lastname@example.org, where you can complete and return an application on-line. I'll be waiting to hear from you. Let's shed those Holiday Pounds together. Love in the meantime, Bella XXOO.
