Bella came into the office this week while her brother Benny was visiting the vet. Bella belongs to Jess, Jess and her partner rescued Benny and Bella from Carla Lane Animals In Need. They cause mayhem, when they come into the office but they are a lot of fun. 

Bella is such a lovely little girl she is what you could call a lapdog. She loves to sit on everyone's lap and loves to be fussed.

Here is a few photographs of Bella in the office getting a lot of attention. 




Our advice to owners is do not wait around, instruct a solicitor straight away. We have had some fantastic outcomes in the past week.

Have a read below of some of the cases from the past week. All the dogs have been or are being returned to their owners without the need to go to court.  We believe that being instructed at the first opportunity can make quite a difference to a case.
