A Little Bit About Me

Do you have a pool in need of a dog? Bella is a dog who LOVES water, spraying water, water in pools, mud puddles, fountains; you name it, Bella is ready to jump in if it has water. Bella also loves fetch, we do not have a pool large enough for fetch in the water and we think Bella might really enjoy putting her two favorite things together. Now we are not requiring a home have a pool to adopt Bella, but if you love a dog that loves water, you should come and meet Bella.

We've gotten to know Bella a lot better during her stay at Marin Humane. Based on her personality, problem solving nature and overall energy level we think she may be a mix of some of the more energetic herding breeds. Bella reminds me a LOT of my Australian Shepherd, they both bark just to hear themselves and alert to world to their presence - or because they saw something and need to make sure we know about it. Bella also has the brains of the Aussies and Cattle Dogs I have known she learns lightning fast and once learned it is in her brain for good! For example, Bella has learned that when we approach her kennel we will not open the door until she sits; she has also learned that being calm means we put on her harness and go for a walk.

Once outside Bells likes to send out the call to the world to let them know she is alive with a dozen barks, we just wait for her to have her say and then go on our walk. Bella is a fetch star - so it is easy to get her exercise. If you have a big yard and are able to exercise a dog without leaving the property, we think that would be grand for Bella. Bella loves doing Nosework at the shelter, going for walks and getting more training. Treat motivated and smart the trainers in us see the great and fun dog inside Bella just waiting for the right person to come along and help her shine. We would like any adopter of Bella to have a chat with one of our staff to make sure they have all the support and information needed for a smooth transition of Bella into their home. Bella's previous home told us she was crate trained, so that will help with management and training. Young, ready to train and smart, Bella is ready to meet you!

Though our adoption animal information is updated frequently, please understand that there is a chance that when you arrive at our location the animal you have an interest in might have been adopted or another party might be going through the adoption process at that time.
