Bella / 5 Years old / Female (Bella is in Foster Care in Victoria)

Image Meet the lovely Bella who will soon be five years old. This lovely girl is looking for a new home where the people understand that she will need time and patience to become a much loved member of their family.
While Bella has been house trained she has been an outside dog all her life and her foster family are working on her inside the house manners. Bench surfing and over excitement in the house is also being dealt with and Bella is responding. She is currently living with a younger Goldie and the play is fast and hard as Bella just doesn’t know when to call it quits. Bella’s foster carers have their work cut out as Bella pulls very hard when walking on lead and inhales her food. However, a slow feeding bowl is being put to good use and Bella is responding to training and is settling down to walk nicely on lead. Bella also loves to travel in the car, not bothered by loud noises but looked for comfort during a recent thunderstorm.
Bella loves food and is currently on a diet. Her new family will need to be prepared to ensure Bella continues on her weight loss and to understand that this girl is learning a whole new way of life and this will take time and patience. Loose lead walking will also be on the agenda and attending a dog training school a necessity.
Image Bella comes microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated for heart worm, intestinal worms and fleas.
Bella requires a home where:
- someone is at home much of the time to keep her company;
- the family is committed to her diet, ongoing training and socialisation;
- there is another laid back, well socialised, medium to large size dog aged between 4 – 9 years in the home;
- you will be able to deal with Bella’s enthusiasm when playing or a home where she is the only dog and her family is prepared to ensure she has the opportunity to regularly socialise with other dogs;
