We have had her for 6 months and my asthma has worsened too much to keep her.
Someone who has experience with big dogs and who has a large house/property.
I would like to be able to spend some time with her at her new home to make the transition as easy as possible.

Bella is a very sweet, smart, and most of all affectionate young girl. She loves nothing more than to cuddle up with you on the couch or in bed and take naps. “Velcro dog” describes her perfectly! We don’t even really leash her on walks. She is very smart, knows all of her basic commands and is completely housebroken. She is used to being left alone during the workday and does not have separation anxiety. She is somewhat wary of new places and people but once she warms up to someone is attached to them forever! She is ok with other dogs, but her breed is not the most social so she tolerates them at best but would do better in a house where she was the only pup. Her natural instincts are those of a guard dog so she will be protective of your little ones if there are children around. She would be perfect for a family who loves a big baby!
