Bella – Hammond, Louisiana
Chill & Mellow Dog, Family Dog
Read about 10 Fido Lifestyle Types
|Size:||Small ( 12 – 30 lbs )|
|Age:||Adult “Chill” – 9 years|
|Type:||Anything Goes! (Mutt)|
Allergies – corn, shrimp, fleas
|Vaccinations:||Yes, but may not be current|
|Reason for Rehoming:||
The ongoing costs associated with caring for a dog is the primary factor for rehoming. She deserves to be in a family that is capable of meeting all of her needs.
|Preferences for New Home:||
A home with adults and older respectful children. She would be an awesome companion for an older couple, as she may not be able to keep up with the activity level of younger children. A home with another low energy dog would be ideal because she does enjoy the presence of other dogs, but she can become irritated with a high energy partner!
Bella currently has an aural hematoma and some irritation of her tail base and legs from an allergic reaction to fleas. We would like to nurse her back to good health before we send her off. The new adopters would need to be willing to wait some time before they take her home.

Hi, everyone! My name is Bella. I love lounging and relaxing indoors with my people. I am a lovable 9y/o girl that gets along with just about everyone and everything, except cats. I am housebroken, can properly walk on a leash and knows all basic commands. I was raised indoors, but I enjoy sunbathing outdoors and car rides to the park to explore new smells. I can be trusted at home if my new owners will be away during the day. I’m a mellow girl who loves belly rubs. I’m very smart and observant. I need a warm bed to sleep in a spot preferably near a window and a family with respectful members who will care for my needs. (I’m allergic to shrimp, corn, and fleas; so I require a grain-free diet and a good flea repellent) If at times I seem aloof, don’t be alarmed! It doesn’t mean that I don’t care. . .only that I just need to warm up to my new environment.
|Activity Level:||Low(ish) energy. Likes quiet indoor time, but outdoors for easy walks is great too!|
|Training Level:||Intermediate (ex. “Wait”, “Heel”, “Leave It”)|
