BELLE teaches us about surviving bullying and about RESILIENCY and TRUST (learning to TRUST and the importance of being TRUSTWORTHY)
When children meet Belle they instantly feel empowered to BE KIND. They see first hand the effects of bullying and the power of kindness.
Belle teaches kids that abuse and neglect are never the victim’s fault and that there are folks in the world to support and love them as they bravely embark on their healing journey.
As children touch Belle’s scars, they help turn them from old wounds to love spots and they become empowered to help themselves and others heal from their wounds too.
Belle was rescued out of Cleveland Ohio in 2014, where she was found wandering and barely alive with extensive dog fighting injuries. From the moment Belle was picked up, she has done nothing but bring joy to those around her. Belle is a constant reminder of the inherent goodness inside all dogs, and the importance of standing up to abuse.
