Meet Bella

Add to favourites

Meet our sweet senior Bella!

Bella is a calm and loving dog that would rather be around her people than to be home alone. She makes for a great receptionist at the shelter and is an excellent companion. She spends her spare time laying around in various parts of the office, asking for pets from time to time. When she isn’t asleep, she is by your side with a slobbery and toothy grin.

She has had vet treatment on her hind leg and belly, where several masses were removed. Her battle wounds are still present, but she is unstoppable. Her walks needn’t be long but regular and consistent for her potty breaks.

Bella has arthritis in most of her joints, the poor old girl! She will need to remain on a joint sensitive diet, pain control, and supplements to keep her comfortable. Stairs aren’t currently an issue for her, but a home with stairs or large steps could be a challenge for her as she gets older. Bella can also be fairly vocal which may not suit an apartment building.

Bella is currently in a foster home with two other dogs who she enjoys playing with! Bella isn’t a fan of some non-family dogs visiting her home, and seems to be picky when it comes to meeting new dogs while on walks.

Being an older girl, Bella is a bit hard of hearing and this can affect her recall abilities. However, she is extremely food motivated, and if you are in her line of sight she will come running straight to you when called!
