found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
BELLA is a 12 months old medium-sized Border Collie mix. She has a short, easy care coat, and the cutest little bob tail! This is a young girl who just wants to have fun!! She was a stray who came into rescue actually pretty shy; however, she has made great progress at her foster home where she has quickly bonded with her foster mom. With lots of praise, encouragement, and a calm voice, BELLA has overcome her initial withdrawn demeanor. While she can be somewhat shy when meeting strangers, she seems to really want to be around people and wants to find love!
Being only a year old, BELLA still displays puppy like antics and has lots of good, fun, playful energy. BELLA is very active; plenty of mental and physical stimulation will be a must for this girl! She is a smart dog and is very food motivated. Working with her should be fun. She responds well to your voice and seems to understand what is said to her. BELLA is learning basic commands from her foster mom and now also walks nicely on a leash. BELLA really loves to chase the water from the hose when her foster mom is in the garden, but has not had the opportunity to check out swimming (we suspect she will love it!). BELLA gets along well with other dogs, however, she can be submissive if overpowered by more dominant dogs. She has recently found her “big dog” voice but is not an obsessive barker. She only barks if frightened or if she feels the situation warrants it. She is housebroken and has not had one single accident in the house. She sleeps quietly through the night in her crate in the bedroom. She is wide awake first thing in the morning and ready to learn about her great big world!
BELLA would benefit from being with someone who will continue with her training and provide her with plenty of daily exercise. She needs someone who has the time and desire to work with her to build her confidence and let her develop into the proud dog that she is meant to be. With proper attention and care we are confident she will become a much appreciated and loved companion & family member for the lucky person or family that adopts her.
BELLA is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Adoption Application (http://norcalbcrescue.org/adopt_info.html) and wish to enquire about BELLA, please email us at Adoptions@norcalbcrescue.org. If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration.
BELLA is being fostered in Nevada City in Nevada County, California.
