Monday's the day we look for Forever Homes. Bella needs one. Pass the word.

Hi Pals.... Monday is the day I post one of our friends who needs a forever home. This is Bella. She's a bit over 5 years old and it sounds like she's a wonderful doggie. Here's a bit about her in her own words...


Hi there! My name is Bella. I was born in February of 2005, I am a female, Pointer/Retriever mix. I was brought to the SPCA by my owner because I was too much to handle. I am an active girl who needs some help with my manners. I am completely housebroken, good with other dogs, and I walk okay on a leash. I have not been around kids, but the staff here thinks I would do fine. I know that I am older than all the other doggies here, but age ain't nothing but a number! I would make a wonderful companion, and I would like a nice yard where I can run all of my energy out! Please come in and see if I am the girl for you. My previous owner provided the following information:

Bella will sit while waiting for dinner to be served. The release word is OK, then watch out as she dives for her dinner dish. She's not grabby for food but EASY is the magical word. You can hold a biscuit right in front of her and say LEAVE IT and she won't touch it. She loves to lay out in the yard and sun bathe and will come to the door and bark to come in when she's had enough.

She shreds squeaky toys but loves big bones, tug of war and frisbee. Also loves tennis balls but defuzzes them in minutes so stopped giving them to her so we wouldn't have an emergency vet visit with a blockage. She always waited for a last bite from the table or share the popcorn but not in your face or obnoxious. The only food I'm aware that she doesn't like is raw celery, otherwise she eats it all!!

She is a wonderful dog and followed me everywhere so I had dog beds in 3 rooms so she was comfy hanging out with me.

She loves to get her front end in your lap and will actually sleep that way, with her hind legs on the floor. Never saw her get on furniture directly. Also, I used to bathe her in our shower. Had to take her in by her collar but she was wonderful after that and just stood there.

Love, Bella

Trying to figure out what manners she is missing. I bet she just needs exercise to get that energy off her. She sound like a sweetie.
