KIAH -- It was a sad case of 'home alone' for a dog named Bella. The Houston Humane Society is asking for the public's help to find whoever left this dog for dead.

Bella was found laying on a pile of dirty laundry after a tip came in about an abandoned dog at a vacated home in east Houston.

"She's obviously in critical condition," said Monica Schmidt of the Houston Humane Society.

In Italian, Bella's name means "beautiful" but she's far from that -- on the outside -- right now.  She's been living an incredibly rough life.
As big as she may look, Bella's just a puppy and rehabbing her will not be an easy process.
Let's hope for better days for Bella!
