Faith was a Natural Dog

It is with a very heavy soul and grieving heart that I must inform the world, and all of Faith the Dog's friends, fans, family, and loved ones, that she has passed.

She is with Jesus now, and is forever ever evermore running on four perfectly formed and beautiful legs. She is, and will always be, a glorious and wonderful friend. She had such an amazing life.

When I have more time to give her a proper tribute I will do so. For now I ask that you continue to pray for us today. Thank you for your love and support.

Condolences and memories may be posted on Faith the Dog's Facebook or the Guest Book on this web site.

Meet Bella Joy

Hi, it’s me Bella Joy.  If you want to you can call me Bella or just BJ.  I am a chiweenie, that is a mix between a Dachshund and a Chihuahua.  At seven months old I weighed 7.4 lbs. and they say I shouldn’t get much bigger.

When I was born on September 2nd, 2010 people said I was special but I think everyone is special and I am not really that different from anyone else.  You see I came to the rescue because I was born without front legs…never had them and I don’t miss them so no big deal.  Some people that I have met just stand and cry and I don’t understand why.  I love my life and I am very happy.  I used to just hop around but now I walk upright a lot too!  I believe you just deal with what comes your way and move on and boy can I move fast when I want to.

I have had my vaccinations and am spayed.  I love to play and other dogs are fun too.  I haven’t really been around cats so I can’ tell you what I think about them.  I haven’t really been outside so I use a potty pad; well at least I try to always use it. I would like to continue to get better at walking upright so maybe we can work on that some more as my back gets stronger every day.

I am ready for my own family and a forever home.  Are you willing to give me a place in your heart and home?  Please don’t fill out the adoption application for me at if you just feel sorry for me because I want to be accepted for being just me, Bella Joy.  I will bring a “beautiful joy” to your home. If you have questions you can call my foster mom at 405-771-4742.
