Bella is an 8-year-old, 75 pound Shepherd/Labrador mix. This gorgeous girl knows that size doesn't matter, and she loves to cuddle with her family! She is always ready to play with her little Dachshund foster sibling, too. Bella is a totally wonderful dog, who, along with her guardians that are getting divorced, was heartbroken when neither was able to keep her. While Bella politely sniffs or ignores new dog friends, she is very friendly when she meets new people because they can pet her and give her treats. She'll show you her appreciation with a big, happy smile.Bella is overly interested in cats in her house, so it's probably best if she is in a feline-free home. She is a fabulous beach dog, or she'll do nicely on a leash for a long walk. A car ride suits Bella just fine, too. She'll ride in the backseat with her head out the window or propped between the two front seats so she doesn't miss a thing. She is house-trained, and even knows basic commands. She's incredibly intelligent and learns quickly. At night, Bella sleeps quietly in her bed. She is very loyal and she might feel a little sad when you have to leave her at home and go out. She'll settle down quickly, though, when she learns to trust that you will be coming home to her soon. Bella's great smile has a big, loving heart to match and she will bring tons of joy to her new forever family!
