Cuddle Clones Donates $300 to Bella a Pet in Need
Bella is a rescue dog. She was rescued by an organization headquartered in Seattle after being thrown out of a moving truck in Taiwan. She was flown to the U.S. and adopted by her family. Bella has been their loving and loyal dog for the last 8 years.
This August, the neighbors of Bella’s family filed a complaint against Bella, had them served with a citation to appear in court and made accusations of her family was breaking a city ordinance against barking dogs. It wasn’t long after that Bella started going to work with her dad.
Unfortunately, while she was with her dad at his shop, a customer left the door open. Bella ran out of the door and down the road. Bella’s family ran after her; even going as far as screaming, yelling, waving and jumping in and out of the path of oncoming traffic to warn drivers and to persuade them to slow down or go around Bella.
However, one vehicle did not feel the inclination to slow down for someone else’s family pet. He hit her with his van. Bella’s family was in too much distress to get his license plate or any information; regardless he just took off without hesitation for Bella or the family he affected.
Bella’s dad scooped her up out of traffic, ran down the road with her in his arms & took her to the nearest emergency animal hospital. The staff there was absolutely amazing to Bella and did a wonderful job stabilizing her after the trauma. They treated her wounds as best as they could and bandaged her up but informed her family that she would be needing surgery.
Unfortunately, her leg was far worse than her family had anticipated. It was contaminated with debris from being run over, as well as missing pieces from her joint. It became a bigger problem beyond just a simple break. Her joint was pretty much destroyed. Her leg was causing her a lot of pain. The leg overall became too high of a risk to keep. It would have caused Bella many more issues so her family decided that Bella’s leg had to be amputated in order to keep her healthy, happy, and alive.
