Adoption Fee: $285
Bella is an absolute sweetie and we adore her. She hasn’t had much training as a pup, and as a result of this she pulls on the lead and needs to work on her manners. However she knows the basics like sit (especially if it results in a treat).
Bella will benefit from a really good walk off the property each morning, and then she is just happy to hang out with her family and have cuddles. Bella has lived with young children and cats, and she is currently being fostered in a lovely family with another dog and a cat.
Bella has not yet been speyed as she was in season when she came into our care, and must wait a period of time before it is safe to do surgery. However she is due for surgery soon, and this will be done prior to adoption.
As with all Pound Hounds Rescue dogs, Bella must be allowed inside the home (including to sleep) so she can really be part of the family. She will also require a comfy bed, quality food, and regular flea and worm treatments.
