Belle's first owner cherished her until the day she died in a tragic accident in the summer of 2001, leaving Belle to her daughter. Unfortunately, the daughter could not keep Belle due to the fact that she already had two dogs of her own and a very busy lifestyle.
The daughter turned to American Fox Terrier Rescue who then connected her with Ann Waters who lived 20 minutes from where Belle and her previous owner had lived. Ann had just lost her own wire fox terrier not long ago, and was ready to welcome Miss Belle into her home, giving her a life of home-made dog sweaters and Christmas bounty
Now Belle lives a life of doggy luxury, surrounded by Ann and her parents who say they we have been blessed to have Miss Belle in their lives, and giving a sense of rest to a daughter whose mother loved her Belle the same way.
