Bella is an active but happy girl. She has high energy and loves walks but ahe also likes to snuggle. We think she may have sone Austrailan Shepard in her as she loves to herd you. We can't keep her as my daughter has moved back in with her teo small children and it is a little hectic with all the changes for Bella. She is used to her crate but uses it most times as a haven when she needs to chill out. She stays in the kitchen with a gate when we go out so is used to being in one area for a few hours or up to as long as 8 hours. But we are ostly home with her. She has stayed in Paetsmart hotel and actually loves it there. Loves the people. She barks very loud at other dogs when out walking.Has never been aggressive with other dogs ut also has not really been around them.
