My partner and I adopted Bella ten years ago when she was only one. She had come from Mildura. Our other rescue dog, Louis (in picture), had to go for an “interview” first, and they loved each other straightaway.

They have been inseparable ever since, even still occasionally having play wrestles at the ages of 11 and 14! Their personalities are complementary: Bella is a lazy gourmand, whereas Louis is a livewire who can barely be bothered with food. They are both great company, and love staying close to us as we both work at home.
