Bella's Info...

Bella's Story...
Hi there kind people! I’m Bella and I have been described as a gorgeous, brown-eyed beauty perfectly matching my name! I am a bit overwhelmed by that description because I am a modest, sensitive little girl. However, it is nice to think that it is true (tee hee)!

I am a 49 pound, 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix. I am a little timid at first and initially I am more comfortable with women than men. However, I warm up very quickly once I know you humans are friendly and I am very affectionate.

I enjoy the company of other dogs and I did well in doggy day care where I made many good friends. My family had to relinquish me to MaxFund because their older dog (over 9 years old) just did not want me in their family. Because of that I have learned to be quite defensive around aggressive dogs.

I am housetrained and I have had formal dog obedience classes too. I “sit” well but have to admit that I need a bit more practice with “heel.” Taking me to positive reinforcement training classes would also help me overcome my timidity toward strangers.

I very much enjoy toys, especially Kongs filled with something yummy! I have lots of energy and very much enjoy walks. I also think I would like to go hiking. There is no problem taking me anywhere because I am fine with car rides – I just go to sleep (so I have lots of energy when we get where we are going – ha ha!). Agility sessions may be fun too!

If you are an active person looking for a sweet, energetic and very loving companion you may not need to look any further. So please come to visit me and let’s get to know each other!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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