Hi, it’s me, Bella. I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaack. You remember me…..5 yrs old and a cutie pie tri sheltie. Well, I’ve been in training for over a month now and the Rescue feels that I am ready to go on to my furever home. I really would like to be in a home that I’ll be their “one and only” because I wanna be the alpha sheltie with other females. I am much better with that little fault I had because my foster home has been working with me diligently and I have had significant improvement. I really don’t know if I would like a home with a male sheltie because the rescue just didn’t have a foster home that we could try that little scenario, but they do feel that I’d do much better in an only sheltie home. I really like being an only furchild to be honest. I get allllllllllll your attention, hugs and belly rubs. How can you fault me for that, lol I’m crate trained, fully vetted, love my walks and REALLY love playing with my squeaky tennis ball. I run like wind, so I think I’d like a nice fenced in yard so I can chase that ball really far too. Pssst- I heard the Rescue say that I had to have a fenced in yard, so be forewarned, okay? Oh and I really don’t like little children. Bleck, they move too fast and scare me and they pull my hair.That hurts ! I don’t think I would mind older children that were taught how to respect us sensitive shelties though because I am noise sensitive too. I need quiet surroundings, not children running around screaming and making noise. That kinda upsets me, know what I mean?
If you think I would fit into your home and you promise to play with me and give me lots of belly rubs, oh please , contact the WPASR Rescue and fill out an application for my adoption. I heard them say you can find it at www.wpasr.org/adoptionprocess.htm. If you have any further questions, you can also message them and they will get back to you lickity split. They only want the best for me , so you can’t fault them for that, so if you have any questions about me, please message them or shoot them an email or phone call. Okay, time for me to tend to my yard and make sure all is well out there. Have a pawsatively wonderful first day of summer everyone…….Bella out !
