BELLA

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Please take me home. Nobody seems to wants me because I can get a bit excited. But I'm a good girl and would be your best friend forever.

Bella is a loving, good-natured, four-year-old Staffie girl, She loves toys and games, knows quite a few commands and, although she is strong, she walks nicely on a lead.  

Bella sometimes gets a little over-excited & then needs help to calm down – but she isn’t aggressive at all. She has a training plan already in place to help her learn to manage this in her new home.

Bella has been waiting for a long time for her special someone to come along. We are happy to consider someone who is interested in either fostering or adoption. Bella is loyal and intelligent and could be the perfect fit for a patient dog lover with a pet-free and child-free home.   Please phone 07748 400 919 if you think you could be that special someone for Bella.


Why I'm special

Bella's life is at a standstill! She is a young beautiful staffy girl with everything to give, but nowhere to go!

She came to us just over 7 months ago and she is a very friendly girl, who is a firm favourite with all our volunteers.  But as with many rescue dogs, she has her share of challenges.

She suffers from anxiety and finds it difficult to process new environments and maintain calm behaviour. Imagine what it must feel like to be in a state of tension - muscles trembling, shallow breathing and unable to concentrate! This is how Bella feels a lot of the time. A relaxed dog can deal with the energy going on around them, but with a tense dog, the energy builds in tension and this is then  ultimately released in inappropriate behaviour.  We hope this helps to explain some of Bella's challenges and why she has previously struggled in a home environment. 

There is good news though! Bella's anxiety can be managed and with the support of our behaviourist and the right guardians, we can turn her life around. 

Taking on any rescue dog is a challenge and hard work and the adopters, themselves, have to be willing to learn new lessons! We are looking for patient, calm steady guardians who will work with Bella using reward-based training methods. We don't believe any experience is necessary, but you would have to have the time to spend with Bella and the willingness to listen.

Bella needs to be the only pet and she woud do best in an adult-only household, although older teenagers may be ok if they are sensible and can be trusted to follow rules about interaction and handling. Ideally, Bella would have access to a good-sized garden where play and exercise can be managed in a safe environment.

We will provide a qualified behaviourist to support the family every step of the way. With some calm structured work, we hope to give Bella the chance of her very own forever home.

Please come and meet Bella. You don't think you'll regret it! Phone 07748 400919.
