Bella's Story...

Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.

Hi, my name is Bella, which means beautiful, and that is exactly what I am!! I have the prettiest markings especially the dark highlights outlining my golden face. My coloring looks like it was painted on and ranges from a light beige, to a golden tan, to a rich red, and even includes some black wispy highlights… If you think I look good in my pictures, you should see me in person! I am as sweet as I am beautiful.

I am very gentle and kind so I would be a great addition to any family situation. I get along well with other dogs, and people of all ages. When I meet a new person, I usually go right up to them and rest my head on their lap or lay down at their feet hoping for some love.

My favorite thing in the whole world is to rest with my person and be petted. I also like to go for walks and explore around the back yard. I am great in the car, and will just sit in the back seat enjoying the ride. I am calm and friendly at all times. I don’t have any interest in cats, so I don’t mind if there are any in my new home…as long as you are there and I can love you forever. I don’t know exactly how old I am, but I think I am just two or three years young. I am small-medium sized, about 35lbs, which means I am the perfect size for cuddling on your lap!

I am potty-trained and am working on learning some obedience tricks. I am taking care of my five babies right now, but will be ready for my forever home towards the end of April or early May. When I go to my new home, I will be up to date on vaccines, micro chipped, spayed, and licensed in Ohio.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Cincinnati Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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 Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
