After stumbling upon Bella the English Bulldog, we instantly fell in love. We were able to read her profile and connect with the guardian for a few days before setting up a meeting time the following week. We already felt like we knew her because we were able to get so much information prior to meeting her! Once we met up at a local park in the Philadelphia area and met Bella in person, it only solidified the feelings we had for her. I think this was beneficial for us as the adopting family and for the guardians, as well. We were able to get to know each other and show the guardians that we were ready and able to care for Bella. I know it was important for them to find a loving family and I am honored that they allowed us to adopt her.
