Bella has had a complete exam and is on heartworm and flea meds.
She is 4-5 years old and about 30-35 lbs.
A microchip will be provided upon adoption. She is allergic to fleas, which caused hair-loss on her back and tail. She tested free of heartworms and other parasites and is currently on heartworm prevention.
Bella loves people but was not taught manners, so she is currently being boarded at a facility where she can work with an obedience trainer. She is not fond of other dogs, but tolerated the feral cats in her neighborhood.
No homes with small children as she is too active and may knock them over. No fee for adoption, all other pets in the home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and on heartworm/flea meds. Currently Bella would do best as an only pet and with an experienced dog owner who will maintain her training.
