Bella is the most loyal dog. She loves belly rubs and snuggling. She is playful and loves long walks. She is obedient. We fostered Bella in the spring of 2020. We decided to keep her because she was a playful and loyal companion, and we didn't want to see her having nowhere to go. She began to display some codependent and defensive behaviors when one of the family members moved away. There were a few incidents where she bit people she was unfamiliar with. Her behavior was addressed by a professional, and she improved, but this improvement was not sustained. We were managing her until within the span of a year, we became grandparents 5 times over. Now that there are always toddlers and babies in our house, it has become too difficult and risky for us to manage Bella. We're retirement age and she is a strong, powerful dog who can be hard for us to handle at times. She is a very engaging and playful dog who needs a lot of love, affection, attention, and exercise. The right owner would be lucky to have her, unfortunately that should probably be a household with no children and a high level of attention.
