Bella is a Australia Shepard/Border Collie mutt from high up in the Sierra Nevadas of California. Jonathan rescued Bella from a shelter in Mammoth Lakes, CA when she was six months old. Don't let Bella's cuteness fool you, she's one tuff pup! Bella's made it out of a few avalanches, raging rivers and even through the sand dunes of Death Valley. Bella loves the outdoors and you can usually find her hiking in the backcountry protecting Jonathan from grizzly bears. But when she's at the office you can bet she's under someones desk looking for free belly rubs. Bella also enjoys long walks on the beach, curling up in front of a fireplace on a cold winter night and chasing Jonathan down the mountain on a good powder day.
