Isabella Van Guten
Isabella is Fur’s administrative assistant and Bernice’s right hand (wo)man. She has a very strong passion for the goals and dreams of Fur Pet Care, and those dreams coincide with her own dreams. Someday, she hopes to become a certified dog trainer. She would love to train police dogs, allergy dogs, and therapy dogs which she would then place with those in need, like Veterans with debilitating PTSD, or those who suffer from extreme anxiety.
She worked as a sitter for Fur between 2013-2015 before retreating to only office duties, so a lot of the company’s older clients are very familiar with her and call her by the shortened version of her name ‘Bella’. Being familiar with clientele brings her joy. She loves being the communicator between clients and sitters, but often misses the time with the animals. She takes comfort in knowing that she is doing her part in making sure all the Furbabies have a sitter who will be there for them.
Her hobbies include taking care of her own dogs, two Lab mix, shelter rescues, LooneyToon and Desmond. Desmond is part Bully and looks it.
Bella is quite the advocate for breeds like Pit Bulls, Great Danes, Dobermans, and German Shepherds. Basically, any breed that often gets mislabeled or misunderstood as aggressive or dangerous. She used to volunteer and spend a lot of time at shelters, but these days, she is highly focused on being a mother. Bella is super crafty and creative, when she actually has the time to work on a project. She went to college for dance and music. She loves the earth, nature, and cares very much for the environment.
