found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
If you’ve been thinking about training a therapy dog, Bella is an excellent candidate! After a week with Bella, her foster mom says: Bella is a very gentle, clean and friendly soul, and wants to be wherever her people are. She wants to please. She’s fully housetrained and easily corrected – verbal commands work fine. She loves to cuddle and is very affectionate, and at the same time is not pushy about it. She likes to make a standing cat run, but not with any commitment to catching it, and tries to be friends with a cat that’s lying down. She doesn’t have a strong mouth focus, and seldom takes things from a person’s hand – if she does take something, it’s done with great delicacy and hesitation. By the same token, she’s not a major chewer, but does like to have toys to play with and mouth. She’s a very intelligent and energetic dog, but not frantic or manic; she just needs something to do. She does like to fetch a ball, and knows several commands, such as sit, no, leave it, shake. She would easily learn more. She’s afraid of large dogs, or of small dogs that have attitude, and loves medium to small dogs that are also gentle. She walks well on the leash and loves good, long walks every day – she’ll walk easily at a slow pace, but really likes a brisk pace. Oddly enough, she doesn’t go potty when she’s on a walk; she always waits to get back home. She’s very quiet, seldom barks, and then only one bark at a time - a perfect dog for those who want a full night’s sleep. She accepts a bath fine, and has a nice, healthy coat. She’s gray with pretty gold eyes that have a slightly green tint to them.
NOTE: Bella would do best in a home with either no other dogs or with a mild-mannered smaller dog.
