Please consider that many of these dogs have been abandoned, ignored by their previous owners, or turned in to a shelter, having little interaction with someone who cares about them. When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life.
My name is Bella and i am almost 7 yrs old. I'm a silly, playful German Shepherd, and I'm told I'm sweet as can be. I know a few basic commands, am crate-trained and learning leash manners. I get so excited on walks that I can barely control myself, it's as if everyone along the way is there to pet and love on me! I would be happiest with another submissive dog pal, or even as your one and only. I'm fine lounging around the house while you're at work. I will happily nap in my crate. Just as long as you promise to come home and love on me! I LOVE playing fetch!! It's one of my very fave things ever. My foster family adores me and they play fetch with me and cuddle me and are teaching my indoor manners. I could possibly have been an outdoor dog before coming to rescue but I am way happier being an inside dog! All these dog beds, good food and lots of love ROCK!! I am full of energy and life so I hope to find an active furever home. I was almost euthanized at a midwest shelter just before Xmas....phew. That was a close one! My family dropped me off there because they were out of money and couldn't provide for me.
Please, won't you consider welcoming me into your home furever? For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org,
