Ciao Bella! Check out our newest beauty to the shelter…

Bella came into our care when her previous guardian was experiencing health issues and could no longer give her the care she needed. This was a big change for her and she is understandably a bit nervous and stressed. True to the Kelpie breed, Bella is incredibly smart, active and motivated. In her last home she learned to sit, shake a paw, lie down, spin, sit pretty, stay, the list goes on! That being said, she is pretty excited outdoors can be a strong puller on leash, she is now learning to walk on harness with us. Bella loves to play with stuffies and especially her favourite soccer ball outside.

This girl is selective with other dogs, meaning she gets a long with some and not with others. She can sometimes be reactive on leash when seeing dogs outdoors. Bella could stand to shed a few pounds in her forever home, and is looking for an active adult or couple to take her on all sorts of adventures and continue to work on training (no children please!). Sweet Bella has the most beautiful, intense eyes and it’s easy to fall for her fast, but she is looking for some specifics in her new home. Ideally she would be the only animal in her forever home, as she is prone to chasing cats and would not be safe to live with one. She needs a home where she will be part of the family, continue to work on her fearfulness with strangers, and a home where she gets tons of mental and physical stimulation is a must! Bella would not be a great candidate for a first time dog guardian, but we’re sure a dog-savy person or couple is going to fall for her fast!
