Bella is a true brindle beauty AND she’s housebroken! This Boston Terrier / chihuahua mix weighs about 19 lbs but would gladly put on more if given the chance! Here’s what she has to say :

“Hello there. I am 12 years young My name is Bella and I am a shy and quiet girl at first when you meet me. My foster mom says that makes me a terrible watch dog. Every uber eats driver that comes through her office door is ignored by me. When you see my white sweet face don’t be fooled. I am very spunky and run even faster than my foster brother who is a Jack Russell mix! I can also jump really high! Do you have any toys? I do enjoy playing tug and fetch when I warm up to you. If not, then I will chew on my bone for a minute. Save it under my bed and take a nap. I like soft surfaces especially pillows in my crate (as long as you are close by) I will happily go to my crate by myself and put myself to bed.

If you grab the leash I will be so happy to go for a walk. My foster mom says I walk beautifully on a leash. I also know how to sit especially if it’s in your lap or if you have a yummy treat for me. Please be gentle with me and have patience with me. I’ve only really known one other family before coming here to my current foster home.”

Bella is an amazingly sweet and quiet adult dog. She is perfectly healthy from her vet visitation and has a big appetite. Although she was very scared and timid when first coming to my home; she has blossomed and getting use to our routines. She’s come out of her shell quite a bit. I assume she was so timid because she’s ever only known 1 home before coming to mine. She was adopted from our rescue 11 years ago and has recently been returned as her owner can no longer physically take care of her due to unfortunate health issues. She currently gets along with the other 3 dogs I have in the home. Ignores the 2 rabbits that are sometimes free roam and have proven to be good with kids. She is a pretty lazy dog but does enjoy her walks. She isn’t the type of “in-your-face-needy” but she does like to be able to see her humans. She enjoys hanging by me (her foster mom) and watching Netflix. I’d really love to find her a forever home where she can peacefully and playfully enjoy her time. She really has so much love to give. Will you be the one for her?

Bella’s adoption fee is $250.00 which includes tax. It includes vet exam, vaccinations, fecal and heart worm test, preventative, flea and tick treatment, spay, and microchip.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.
