Bella is an owner surrender that we are trying to save from going to our high kill shelter in Texarkana, AR. Her mom has taken a traveling job which keeps her on the road the majority of the time. Her dad has the new duty of working full time as well as being mom and dad to their children. He has said Bella must go because he cant take care of her and the household!
Bella has gotten along well with and played with the other dogs at her foster mom's house. Foster mom has large and small dogs, both male and female. Bella does well with foster mom's kids (she has older kids) and does well with the neighborhood kids that come over to play.
Bella sits, shakes, opens handicapped accessible doors to let herself in and out to potty. Bella likes to dine on toilet paper and socks so she will teach her new owners to be neat and tidy- at least with their socks! Bella loves car rides and gets very excited when she sees her leash come out because she loves taking walks on her leash. Bella is skittish of men (barks) but warms up in couple minutes!
She is a great dog that has met with unfortunate circumstances through no fault of her own. Her ideal home would be an active, loving home with older children that included lots of walks on her leash.
