Hi! I’m BELLA! As you can see, I am well-named being quite the looker! Don’t you just love my freckles! As a young Border collie mix, I love to run and play and would be a good fit for an active household. I get along okay with my little foster brother (chi mix) but I would really shine as the only dog in the family.
I am working hard on my potty training. I am a smart little girl and reinforcement on signaling to go out would be a great idea that I would pick up on quickly. I like to use the big “bathroom” outdoors but have had a few accidents inside at my foster’s house. I am okay with being in my crate when you are gone but I am not yet crate trained. Please don’t leave me out when no one is home because I can chew on things I am not supposed to but do leave me chew toys. Have plenty around and let know those are the things I CAN chew will really help me understand.
I love all the people at my foster’s house, but I haven’t met any kids there. I am a super friendly doggo so pretty sure everyone will be my friend. No livestock and likely no small animals for Bella. For some reason I am afraid of being on a leash but I am working on that too. Along with being smart, I really want to please you and love my little treats so some patient basic training would probably go really well. I bark to alert you if I hear something or if someone startles me. An active home with an experienced dog owner who will gently train me would be where I would be happiest. I hope you love cuddles and kisses as much as I do! At just 26 lbs, I will fit nicely in your lap…let’s meet soon!! xxoo BELLA
