Adopted 10-29-19

BELLA is an affectionate, social, and smart 6-year-old, 40-pound, Border Collie mix female whose family is moving to Assisted Living and are unable to take her. She is crate trained and house trained (asks to go out). She responds well to “sit,” “stay,” “come,” “off,” “wait” and other commands; she has had snake avoidance training. Bella loves to play with her stuffed toys, but she needs more exercise and would benefit from more leash training; she would do best with a strong handler. Since she likes to jump, Bella needs a yard fence of seven feet. She is in good health, spayed, up to date on shots, and medical records are available. She has gotten along with children but other dogs are not her friends; cats are unknown. She is slow to warm up to strangers, but once introduced she will behave as commanded. Bella is a loving and loyal companion who prefers to share your bed.

There is no adoption fee. If you will welcome Bella into a loving home as part of your family, please call Claudia between 10 AM and 9 PM at 586-214-3164.
