Story
I’ve had Bella since she was 6 weeks old, she’s 8 years old now. She’s such a good dog, it breaks my heart to be in this position. Honestly, she simply needs more than I can give her with the direction that life has dragged me. She loves attention, affection, exercise, and playing. I’m not around enough to give it to her consistently. She’s very smart, very protective of her home, and very loving. I got Bella from a Husky breeder in 2016. She’s fully house trained. She loves to lay around, but also loves to investigate and always has to be the center of attention. I have 4 kids and she’s always been great with them, as long as they have reasonable boundaries when she’s eating. She gets overexcited when playing, so caution when she’s got something in her mouth, she might accidentally nip while trying to play. Has t had much socializing but is usually more cautious and inquisitive while around other animals.
