Beautiful Bella is an affectionate and intelligent girl who likes to be kept busy. Active and playful, she enjoys games which keep her both mentally and physically stimulated. Due to a traffic accident two years ago, Bella is reactive towards traffic and will lunge and bark at moving vehicles. Whilst her behaviour is improving with training, it is important that she finds a home in the right environment, away from traffic and with an owner who will commit to continuing her training.

Other Notes

Bella is looking for a rural home, outside London, where she can be exercised without having to encounter traffic on a regular basis. Semi-rural homes will be considered if her owners are committed to driving her to appropriate open spaces every day for exercise. She is not suitable to live in an urban environment. Bella's a smart dog who quickly builds strong bonds. She’s responsive to training and still has plenty to learn, she’s therefore looking for an owner who is up for a challenge and is willing to continue working with her and will also work with a dog trainer. Ideally, someone who will eventually progress to doing dog-sports with her, like Agility, Flyball, Scentwork etc. Her new owner will need to be experienced with dogs, ideally having owned a working breed, as an adult, before. She will need to be the only pet in the home and she can live with children over the age of sixteen years. It is not yet known how she copes with being left home alone, so she will need a home where there is someone around during the day and she will need a secure garden with at least 6-foot fencing. Bella is is no couch potato, she will need a fit and active owner who can match her energy requirements. Please only apply for Bella if you're prepared to commit to her training and will be able to keep her both mentally and physically stimulated. With the right owner Bella will make a fun, loyal and loving companion and she will be sure to repay their efforts tenfold! Bella has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and is up to date with flea & worm treatment. She has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed. Please note Bella is currently under the care of German Shepherd Rescue West Essex.
