Guess who got adopted this weekend!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Saint Francis Property Santa Rosa, CA 01368633

Guess who got adopted after only 5 days in foster care, Bella, my foster dog!  Bella was adopted by a family in Walnut Creek.  Gwen and I  wish her well!  She is a great loving dog who deserves a loving, caring  family.   Good luck Bella with your forever family, you'll be missed. 



I love living in Rincon Valley!  I've lived here since 1995 and can't imagine living in a better north bay community.  Call me today if you're interested in buying a home in Rincon Valley, or if you'd like to list your Rincon Valley home for sale.

Hello Jim,  Bella looks like a keeper for sure and will make some family very happy,  I would have a hard time giving this one up.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® very true Sheri.  Add to tht the fact that when they arrive, they are scared, stay in their crate for a day or two before getting to know the place.  Fast forward a week, and this the dog is jumping in my lap, sleeping on the bed, it's hard to turn around and say "Ok boy, time to do it all over again with somebody new".

Thank you Lynnea Miller , she was pretty fun.  Gwen and I took her to one winery event, and everybody there had to stop to say "Hi Bella"

Oh, I SO admire you, Jim! My son fosters also and I just think that I would probably do a room addition to my house and wind up keeping them all. I couldn't let them go! That family is so lucky to have Bella and to have had you provide the opportunity to have a wonderful family dog too!

Thank you Michael Jacobs .  Gwen and I spent this weekend looking for her as she escaped her new 90 year old adoptive parent.  We put flyers out and got the word out on FB & some lost dog sites.  A bit beyond what we normally do but she was a cutie and I'm sure she is scared.  2 new dogs coming today.
