Bella Donna's Story...

My name is Bella Donna (which is beautiful lady in Italian), but all my close friends call me Belle.

I was found on a very rainy, cold morning in the East Valley. No collar, no tags, no way to identify me. I was very lucky to run across a nice lady who got me to a wonderful foster home with Valley Dogs Rescue. My foster mom loves me (and who wouldn’t?), but she already has a big dog and feels it best for me to find my own home since no one has come looking for me.

In addition to my foster brother, I have been around lots of other dogs and have done fabulous with them, as well as the humans they bring with them. What can I say; I am just a little social butterfly!

I am a typical Australian Shepherd mix – with lots of love and lots of energy. I would be best in a home with a large, secure yard for me to run and play and exert my energy. I may also do okay in a smaller home with someone who is very active and committed to taking me for daily (or more) runs, walks, or letting me run alongside a bicycle.

It would be fun to have another dog to play with when you aren’t able to spend time with me. That way I have someone to occupy my time and attention. I think I would also like kids to keep me on my toes and shower me with attention.

I have learned to walk better on a lead and am house trained. I am a beautiful girl with lots of love to give. Please come and meet me and see if I would be the right addition for your home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella Donna, a Gilbert 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 Gilbert, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Gilbert.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gilbert 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 Gilbert 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 Gilbert paves the way for another one to be saved.
