Shasta Belle


Shasta Belle pet of the week

This sweet 5 year old, 78 pound European Brazilian Bassett Hound is as lazy and stubborn as she is cute.

She loves to eat (as if you could not tell) and has an older “sister” that is a Boston Terrier who she could not live without. She loves sitting on the back porch and chilling with her Daddy.
