Bella The Hero

Hello my name is Bella and I am my daddy's service dog. We are a part of the Wags for Warriors program. My dad is a Vietnam vet who currently has a trachea tube and has lost his sense of smell. On September 21,2017 our home caught on fire. My dad was sleeping in his bedroom and I tried to wake him up by jumping on his chest to alert him of the fire. My dad woke up and managed to make his way to the porch where he then passed out. I then accidentally locked myself in my dads room and hid under his bed where I was found unconscious. The heroic North Ridgeville Fire Department brought me to an animal hospital where I remained on oxygen until I was stable. My dad and myself are both on the mend but we need your help for our hospital bills and are home which has been destroyed. Please consider donating to help us back on our feet.
