Animal Hospital of Nags Head shared Brittany Cooper's post. ...

(SOLD) Boston Terrier $100 - Elizabeth City, NC (27909) Looking to rehome my Boston Terrier, Her name is Arabella, but goes by the name Bella. She is a sweetheart. She gets along with other animals and children. With other animals the attention has to given out equally, because Bella gets jealous from time to time. Bella loves children, she is actually very protective over them. She is 3 or 4 years old, fixed. I have relocated and cannot have animals where I am. It really breaks my heart to have to do this 😭💔
