Age: 2

Gender: Female

Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback Crossbreed

Bella is a very sweet girl once she knows you but can take an instant dislike to some new people, we are working with her on this and are finding she responds well to positive reward based training which would need to be carried on in a new home. Bella is very loyal and loving with her carers, and finds separation from them stressful, she can open doors and will become highly anxious when left on her own so will need owners who work from home or are retired to give her the time that she needs. Bella is good with other dogs but is very over the top in interaction and becomes frustrated if she cannot say hello quickly, she will need continued positive training in this area and plenty of mental stimulation at home to keep her arousal levels down. Bella is a highly intelligent girl so will thoroughly enjoy her training sessions. Bella is adults only due to her arousal levels, and will need a home as an only dog. She will be a fantastic training project and friend to an experienced patient owner who will be as devoted to her as she will be to them. Please come along to the shelter and talk to Karen if you would like more information about Bella.
