Bella Fischer was at the end of her school day and arrived at her bus stop to find a tiny puppy. Bella scooped up the little puppy, and brought it home out of the cold. Once home, she told her dad what happened as she warmed the little puppy and gave it some food to eat. Bella, with the help of her dad, went to the pet store to see if the puppy was micro-chipped to find the owner, but it wasn’t. While at the store, Bella used her own allowance to buy puppy food and a toy for the cutie pie. Bella then went out and tried to find the puppy’s owner in her neighborhood. Success! The neighbors, who lost the puppy, had been very upset that the puppy was missing. They were so happy and thankful that Bella found their puppy.
So today we honor Bella Fischer for doing the right thing! Thanks to her kindness and caring heart, a lost puppy is safe. Michelle Basile, Bella’s aunt who nominated her, stated, “The neighbor was so upset! The puppy was for her handicapped son, and they were so happy when Bella brought their puppy home to them that they even gave Bella a small award. Bella is amazing!” You really are amazing Bella! We are so proud of you!
