This beauty is Bella, a 5-6 year-old long-legged Lab/Shepherd mix girl with really impressive airplane ears and beautiful brown eyes. Bella found herself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter and was very frightened there so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could relax in a foster home while searching for a great new home. This girl is a sweetie but can be a little shy in new situations. Her ideal home would be with a mature person or family with older kids so she could truly relax and enjoy her life. Bella walks very nicely on a leash and eagerly showed us that she knows how to sit and shake hands on command. She has done well in her crate and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Bella would love having a home with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence so she could relax safely at home. She has done well meeting other dogs since coming to us so might enjoy having a calm, mature canine buddy in her new home to show her the ropes and help build her confidence. Bella weighs about 56 pounds currently but is thin and needs to gain 5-10 pounds to reach her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Bella. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
