Bella is a shy but very sweet 3 year-old Chihuahua mix female who was an owner surrender at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter. We don’t know what circumstances led to this little girl losing her home but she was understandably frightened at the noisy shelter so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could relax in a foster home while she searched for a new home. Bella is initially timid when meeting new people but it doesn’t take her long to warm up to someone once she knows you want to be her friend. She would love a quiet home where she relax and enjoy life. Bella has been fine with the other small dogs in her foster home so should do well in another home with a calm and gentle canine pal. She has had excellent crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Bella weighs about 11 pounds and 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 preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with 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. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
