Belle is the official mascot and guard dog for Premier Remodeling and takes her duties very seriously.
Rob adopted Belle in March 2010 when she was about nine months old, and July 4th was thereafter proclaimed as her birthday. Belle is a big girl as she is a Bull Mastiff mix, but don’t let her size scare you. She’s one of the most friendly, lovable dogs you’ll ever meet.
Her favorite activities include taking long, luxurious naps throughout the day, showing off her smarts by shaking, sitting and laying for “treats”, going for walks on the beach and playing in the water (not too deep, though!), and letting everyone in the office know when a stranger approaches. She especially enjoys hanging out of our second story window and watching the children as they’re released from the school across the street at the end of the day.
Belle is definitely one of the Premier Remodeling family and everyone that comes into contact with her falls instantly in love.
