Age: 5 Months

Gender: Female

Breed: Border Collie

Bella is a sensitive girl who is looking for a quiet rural home with owners that are experienced with her breed. Bella is a little fearful at first but soon makes friends, she’d love a quiet home with a routine so that she can blossom into her true potential. Bella needs kind patient owners who understand she has many fears even at this young age, and are willing to gently work with her to help her find the world a lot less scary. Bella can be affectionate and will come to you for a fuss, she loves to spend time with her favourite humans, her face lights up when she knows you are going to take her out of her kennel for some quality time together.  Bella likes her food and toys; these can be used to teach her new skills and to form a bond with her, she is a highly intelligent girl that needs plenty of mental and physical stimulation for her to be happy and settle. Bella will need her own garden so that she can enjoy off lead time and have a place she can unwind and relax. Bella will need ongoing socialization with other dogs, done at a slow gentle pace with stable dogs who can teach Bella that her own species is fun to spend time with, this will take time but will be very rewarding to watch Bella turn into a less worried girl. Bella will make a wonderful friend and will provide a lot of love and entertainment! Please come along to the shelter and fill out an application if you would like to be considered for Bella. Bella’s adoption fee will be £250 to include two 1-1 sessions with our in-house Behaviourist.
