No doubt, Clara Belle is Avila Beach Royalty! Every day she sits on her throne overlooking the beach and barks if any of her royal subjects walk by…and she is always ready to defend her royal territory.

Clara Belle’s life wasn’t always so soft and easy. Lisa Newton heard that Clara Belle was living most of the time in a tiny dog carrier in a dark garage overfull of wall-to-wall stuff. 

Even though Lisa had never seen the little dog, she knew she wasn’t going to go home without Clara Belle the very day she met her. Clara Belle was six years old at that time and is now a happy 14-year-old princess who is still young and adorable. She loves her belly rubbed and will come running for a treat. 

Clara Belle is a great companion, a good little traveler, and very much loved. Just ask her!
