Bella's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Bella's Story...
Bella is a sweet, independent girl with a fearless personality. She was born blind but it has not stopped her from doing anything. She loves to play with the other resident dogs in the home. She has no problem navigating around the house and if you watched her move about you wouldn't realize she is blind. She is paper trained and is doing well with that while we work on housetraining. We are working on basic commands and she is attending training classes. While her foster mom is away, she stays in a pen to keep her safe. She is estimated to be 7 months old and weighs 35 lbs.

All dogs are spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom & dad are!), we are just guessing on breed and size when grown.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday May 31, 2014, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, at their new location, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Minneapolis Dutch Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Dutch Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dutch Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Dutch Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
