the Week!


This sweet girl has found herself back in rescue due to not getting along with the other dog she was living with. Bella is a very sweet girl who can be nervous when she first meets new people, but soon comes round and to show you what a lovely dog she really is. Bella has now being walked by some of our walkers and has shown to be very friendly an playful with them. 
She would benefit from further lead training as she does pull a bit. Bella knows her name, comes back when called and even knows a few basic commands such as sit. Once Bella gets to know you she is very friendly and just loves to give you a big cuddle. 
Bella has lived with young children and is good with cats.
Due to the problems she had in her last home we would prefer that she be the only dog in the house.

If you think you can offer Bella the home she so deserves, please contact the kennels on
