Bella is a sweet and petite sable
female. She is around 10-12 months old, and weighs about 60
pounds. She will probably remain on the small side, but
needs to put on some weight. She is very friendly and loves
attention. She bonds quickly with people who show her some
When Bella was rescued from an
animal shelter, our volunteer had to carry her to the car.
Bella was so shy, she would immediately crouch down on the floor
when anyone came up to her. Now that we have worked with her
for a few weeks, she is much more playful and confident.
Bella is still very submissive, but she is frightened by other
dogs. She would probably be good with another non-aggressive
dog, but it will take her a little time to become comfortable with
another dog around. Her first instinct is to be defensive
when another dog approaches her, so she will just need some
patience and practice.
Bella did really well at a recent
adoption event. She played nicely with the other dogs, and
was very affectionate with all of the visitors. She is a
playful little girl, and is starting to come out of her
shell. Bella is going to be gorgeous when she fills out.
