Isabelle is a dog that appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf to help the player with their duties as mayor. Her name was first revealed as Hisho during the New Leaf developer commentary, then changed in the June 2012 Nintendo Direct to Shizue. When localized to English, her name became Isabelle. It may be based on the fact that the top of her head resembles a Bell sack. Her Japanese name comes from shih tzu, the breed of dog she is based on.
Because she was the first new character to be revealed to players, many people speculated that she is the 'eager secretary' that will assist the player in his/her new role as the town mayor. This was later confirmed when she was shown talking to the player, with the name Hisho, which is Japanese for secretary, during Tokyo Game Show 2011. She is said to be very clumsy and very absent-minded. She has a twin brother called Digby who runs the Happy Home Showcase.
