Let Belle be your new best friend


Belle enjoys the company of the members of the Brevard County Fire Department.

Belle is a good-natured and sweet fawn-colored terrier mix who needs a wonderful forever home. 

She can lovingly be described as 8-years-young because her activity level matches that of a much younger dog. Belle is a social butterfly and at a recent adoption event made pals with members of the Brevard County Fire Department, gave some sweet and sloppy kisses to event volunteers and happily greeted children who stopped by to give her some love. 

This sweetheart steals the hearts of everyone she meets. For now, she patiently awaits that special day when she will go to her new home. 

The past month, Belle has lived at the South Animal Care Center in Melbourne, and the shelter volunteers sing her praises. This lovable girl has also made some great furry four-legged pals, and was brought to the shelter with her best buddy Buford. Belle grew up with Buford, an adorable 3-year-old male brindle mix. Buford is dog-selective at the shelter, but he sure loves his girl Belle.

Belle can be adopted with her best friend Buford or by herself.Belle and Buford are housed near each other at the shelter and serve as a calming presence for one another. Fans of the duo tried to adopt them out together as a pair. Unfortunately, this task proved difficult because of Buford’s dislike of other dogs and since most families aren’t looking to adopt two dogs.

Belle now continues her road to adoption solo and would make a fantastic addition to any family. Her sweet disposition is perfect for a home with children and she would love to live alongside other dogs. Belle is a healthy and happy girl who enjoys walks, snuggling, and meeting new people. 

Now the obvious question is, when would you like Belle to come over for a slumber party?

The Brevard County shelters have a wonderful program called The PJ Pup. Through this program, potential adopters can bring Belle, Buford or another potential pet home from the shelter for up to a week to see if it’s a good match.
