Dog Works with Autistic Children, Stars in 'Annie'

A sweet story about an even sweeter dog who took her calm and patience from working as a service dog to the center stage! Check out the full article for more information about her work with autistic children. Go, Bella!

FORT MEYERS, Fla. -- She's been onstage only two weeks, but already Bella acts like a diva.

Minutes before showtime, the dog starts barking outside her handler's dressing room at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre.

Then she happily struts across the stage during the musical "Annie" and soaks up the applause at curtain call.

Bella even "signs" autographs with her paw and an ink pad.

"She loves to be on the stage," says owner Madison Terrasi, 16, who plays the orphan July. "You can see it in the way she wags her tail."
