We bought a Maltese puppy when she was the 8 weeks old. My kids and I would be so lost without her. She is such a joy to have around. We named her Bella. She has easily become part of our family :) She keeps the kids entertained and they also get exercise when they play with her as she is so full of energy. She is now 5 months old. We are so lucky to have her and I am so glad that I decided to buy her that day :)

  • yeah bella is a popular name for kids and pooches! i have a few friends who have named their dog’s bella lol


  • Oh my god! We too have one of these delightful little dogs. Also named Bella. She is such an endearing little pooch. Even tho we didn’t plan to have get, I’m glad she came into our lives


  • Also; it is even better when they are old enough to take on the responsibility of walking the dog!


  • She sounds like an important part of your family.


  • Dogs are wonderful pets and such a big part of a family. Glad you are happy with your puppy.


  • Wow! We have a Maltese ShihTsu, 3 in December, her name is also Bella. My daughter rescued her when she was 4 weeks old (we were told she was 8 weeks :/) And spew adopted her. At the start, I thought “What are we doing?” Now I can’t imagine life without her. She’s such a placid, gentle, friendly little thing


  • An amazing idea! We got a Labrador Retriever when he was 6 and 1/2 weeks old. He’s now almost 3 years old. And he’s the best companion ever!
    Enjoy Bella! :-)


  • Pet s are great. I’m glad she makes you all happy
