Bella is a 9 year old brindle colored great dane. We got her from a shelter 2 years ago with intentions of being her forever home. Since then, we have had another child who is now walking and climbing on everything. Bella has started growling at her when she climbs up on the couch next to her. She has been wonderful with my older children and is very loving. I feel with her getting older she does not want to be bothered by a toddler. She must be an inside dog and must be willing to send us pictures and updates on her periodically as my older children are so sad about this. We are in MT Orab Ohio please contact me for more info.
