My daughter had been begging for a puppy. I had told my kids and husband that I did not want a dog in the house because it was too much work.Earlier this year my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at a very young age of 6. I decided she needed something in her life to make her happy and to take her little and anxious mind off pf this disease. My husband and I adopted Bella. We fell in love with her as soon as we saw her. The kids had no idea until they saw her that day.
