On September 2, 2011, Daniel and Tammy Payne lost the love of their lives. Isabella came to live with them in May, 2003 and quickly stole their hearts. From that point on Bella lived a charmed life bringing joy to her new family every single day. In the winter of 2009, Bella was diagnosed with an incurable condition; she fought her battle with the grace of a true southern lady. Isabella had only recently celebrated her 14th birthday, surrounded by her loving family.
Isabella will be missed by not only her family, but her rescue family as well. Daniel and Tammy’s love for Bella, and the bulldog breed, compelled them to help in other ways. Mr. and Mrs. Payne have been very loyal friends and supporters of both Florida English Bulldog Rescue and Georgia English Bulldog Rescue.
