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 was initially a bit nervous and stressed. Once she gets to know you, she is an affectionate ham!

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! Bella is great on leash and behaves well when passing other people or dogs on the trail. That being said, She is quite strong, and will pull if she sees a squirrel! Bella loves to play with stuffies and especially her favourite soccer ball outside. She is a professional tug-of-war player and can play until the cows come home. She would love an active home that can provide adventures and activities to tucker her out. When it isn’t play time, she can be found snoozing in the sun or sleeping near by her favourite person. This girl is a little shy, but if you’ve got a few treats, it won’t take longer than a few minutes till she is your best friend. Bella has even made pals with the mailman at her foster.

Name: Bella
Age: 1 year old
Gender: Female
Animal ID: 566015
Breed: Kelpie
