Bella - AVAIL APR-2020! :) F, 1 y/o, 29 lbs Labrador Retriever mix Spayed Bella is a really young and sweet but shy & timid little girl coming out of her shell! She does enjoys playing with friendly & more mild-mannered dogs who respect her space. Bella is still a bit nervous so she'll let persistent dogs who overstimulate or push into her space to back off (just a quick display). Bella has little interest in cats, generally ignores them and she's been OK being left home alone. She prefers hanging out in her crate, even overnight, probably liking the feeling of safety in her crate. A calmer, one-on-one relationship full of cuddles and belly rubs with her human would be helpful in her journey out of her shell! Generally speaking Bella's future adopter should have a calm environment and be very patient, gentle, and have some experience with shy dogs like Bella. ///// HISTORY: Bella somehow ended up at the high kill-shelter scared and crouched into a far corner. She received no adoption or rescue interest and became eligible to be euthanized for space (passed her deadline) which is when we found out about her and rescued. Later, we found that the shelter had spayed her while she was pregnant in her 3rd trimester thus aborting her babies. We picked her up, got her to our vet for blood tests & a full checkup, and one of our amazing fosters is now working with her to bring joy and trust back into her life.
