Bella's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Bella's Story...
Bella! Bella! Everywhere I go I hear people calling out “Bella!” I don‘t know if people are calling me by name or commenting on how beautiful I am! Either way it feels pretty good to be the center of attention after going so long without any. A lady likes to be admired and thought of. I could sure use some TLC at the moment, considering my current state of affairs…see I was just recently rescued from a life of neglect. I am on the cusp of starting a whole new life, hopefully with someone who will be able to provide me with great love & care for the rest of mine. I get along well with other dogs and do great in my playgroup with both large and small pooches. True to my GSD nature I do like to protect my family and keep my loved ones safe, whether it be from humane or canines, so slow introductions and family with children 10+ will suit me best. I may be demure, but I still can’t resist a good ol’ cat chase. I know basic commands, am already housebroken, plus I am learning crate training to add to my repertoire, and with reward-based training we can add even more skills to my base set. Admire me for my looks, but fall in love with the heart and the love it has to share.

1 year old-40lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes microchip & registration, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Portland German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
