Hello, I’m Bella! I’m about nine years old, but you wouldn’t know it because I’m really active and strong.  We don’t know about my first four years, but the last five years I spent as the beloved pet of my male owner. He passed away and his family couldn’t keep me, so I came to rescue to find a new family. I have very sad eyes, because I miss my person who loved me so much. I bond well with men, but women are okay too.

I really need a fenced yard at my new home, because I have a high prey drive and love to chase tennis balls. I just start following my nose and I can’t help myself! I was an only pet and my best situation would be to remain as an only pet.  I get excited now and then and have the zoomies, but I settle down pretty easily.  I am true to my breed and am a Velcro dog – I just love to follow you around. My other favorite thing is cuddling on the couch with my person. I have a loud bark and bark at cars and things outside, because I didn’t live in the city before, and this is new for me.  I am afraid of thunderstorms, fireworks, and gunshot noises. I know many commands but need some practice. I am crate and potty trained and up to date on all my shots. I am a sweetheart and a faithful companion and will be devoted to my new person.
