Man's dying wish comes true with adoption of Bella the boxer from Killeen Animal Shelter

Bella was featured on Texas Today and within a few hours she had a new home.

KILLEEN, Texas — Editor's Note: The video above is from the Perfect Pet segment before Bella was adopted.

Texas Today featured Bella, a boxer mix, on our Perfect Pet segment Thursday morning. By that afternoon, she had a new home. 

Johnny Dees, the Program Coordinator for the City of Killeen, told 6 News Bella will go to the grandson of a man who recently passed away.

"Her new family recently had their family Patriarch pass away and his last wish was to ensure his grandson had a dog," said Dees. "They felt Papa led them here today and to Bella!"

Bella is a 1 year 3-month-old boxer mix. 

"Her new Mom, Dad and human brother will have tons of room for her to run and play and get all the love she can handle," said Dees.

She was adopted from the Killeen Animal Shelter as a puppy and then surrendered 9 months later, Dees said.
