Sweet, meek, intelligent, cuddly, and well-behaved, Bella is a six year old 35 lb sweetheart of a mini  Australian Shepherd looking for her forever home. She is from a retired breeder and is now just learning to live the life of a normal dog. That’s a bit of a daunting task, but she’s learning really quickly.
She is a quiet dog, and everything in the world is overwhelming to her. But more than anything else, other dogs are frightening, so we don’t know if she will probably never be a dog to go to play at the dog park.  She has learned to enjoy walks – even get excited at the door – but if you take too long putting on your shoes (or it’s too cold out) she might change her mind.

She will need a home with time and patience so she can learn to trust and start to live the life she was meant to.
Once Bella is in her safe space she relaxes quite a bit, and loves attention from her humans. She is healthy and energetic, with a tail that goes from tickling her belly to flaying wildly from side to side. Bella does fine by herself, although she does tend want to be let outside a lot, and would benefit from a nice safe backyard she can hang out in. She is good with people once she has time to get to know them, and does alright in the car. From what we’ve seen we assume she would be good with children and probably nervous of cats.

If you think you have the time, energy and patience to help Bella become her best self, please apply!
