|Animal ID: BellaBella (female)|
Doberman Pinscher Mix Age: Young Adult
|Compatibility:|| Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults |
|Personality:|| High Energy, Somewhat Dominant |
|Health:|| Spayed, Vaccinations Current | Bella is a Beautiful, Energetic, Affectionate dog who loves attention & to be with her people. She is very playful! Her favorite toys are tennis balls, and ropes to play tug of war. She is an outgoing, fun dog and would be great for an active family. What I am hoping for in a new home for her is that she will get the attention she deserves with someone who would like to cuddle with her. She loves to be a part of the family and is very good with people. Bella knows: Sit, Crate, Lay down, Inside, Outside, Ball, Catch, and Fetch. Age/Birthday: 4 yrs. Weight at last Vet visit: 60 lbs. (perfect weight) Cats: Bella is good with cats. She ... (Read More)likes to try to play with them. She is gentle and will even cuddle with them. Small Dogs: She has grown up with 2 small dogs & loves to play with them & is very gentle. She has met many, & is very good with small dogs that are friendly to her. She has had one issue with a small dog that went after her. Bella is on the dominant side & needs more submissive housemates that won't challenge her (but to give her credit, not many dogs will tolerate a dog that goes after them). She has lived in a home that has fostered many dogs in need, so she has been around many dogs & has gotten along with all but the one. Large Dogs: She is good with dogs her size. She sees them as someone to play with. Bella is very playful. Kids: Bella is great with kids! She has been around infants and children of many different ages. She is very affectionate & will lick their faces. Men: Bella is fine with men now. She was leery of them when she first came here, but is perfectly comfortable with them now. Women: She loves women, but will get protective of you if you do not take the leadership role. Strangers: She will be kind and a little skeptical at first, but she warms up easily & then comes up asking to get pet. Food: All dogs are trained to eat out of their own bowl. She eats Kibbles and Bits home-style. She eats 2 cups, 2x a day (for a total of 4 cups) Bella does guard her food, it is mild, but it would be best that she be fed separately from any other pets you have. Preferably just put in her crate to eat. Crate Trained: Bella is crate trained. Just say 'Crate' and she will run into her crate and lay down. Make sure it is in a public area of the house or somewhere she can see you so she wont whine because she will be worried. House Trained: Bella will use a doggy door if you have one. If you don't, she will also signal you by nudging you and walking to the door. Leash Trained: Bella doesn't like her leash but she will use it. She needs to be walked at least 20 minutes a day. She would make a great jogging partner! Car: Bella loves car rides, just take her over to the car and say 'Up' and she will jump in on her own. She loves the window down so she can sniff the air outside. Other issues: None, she's wonderful!

THEY ARE NOT OBJECTS THAT YOU CAN GET RID OF WHEN THEY BECOME INCONVENIENT. THEY ARE INNOCENT LIVING, BREATHING ANIMALS WITH FEELINGS THAT DEPEND ON YOU TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE CARE OF, LOVE, & PAY FOR EVERYTHING THIS PET NEEDS FOR UP TO 20 YEARS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN APPLICATION. * Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It also has a handle on the back that you can grab if need be, without hurting your pet (EX: Dog falls off your boat, just grab the handle & pull your pet (Less) Adoption Fee: $45 Animal Location:
