Question Mark Icon


Beautiful Belle is an intelligent girl who is full of personality. Sadly, she hasn't had the best start in life and can be nervous of new people. She doesn't appreciate being overhandled by strangers but once she’s built up trust with someone, she's quick to show her affectionate side and enjoys receiving love and attention. She loves going for long walks, taking in all the best smells but prefers to keep her distance from other dogs. She also enjoys basking in the sun and rolling around in the grass. In the right home with an understanding and patient owner this girl will make a loving and loyal companion.

Other Notes

Belle builds strong bonds and can become stressed when left alone. She’ll need a home where someone can be around during the day, however, once settled in her new home she could, on occasion, be left home alone for a few of hours. She’ll need to live in an all adult home without visiting young children, due to her nervous nature. Belle will try to avoid contact with other dogs and can sometimes be grumpy to those that approach her, so she is looking for a home in an area where she can enjoy her walks without coming into regular contact with lots of other dogs. Belle has been muzzle trained and her adopter will need to carry this with them to place on, if needed. Belle was found to have three non-cancerous cysts. These cysts are commonly seen in older dogs and have now been removed by our veterinary team. Belle is also deaf. She has been doing very well with hand signal training whilst on foster and this would need to be continued by her new owner when adopted. Her adopter will receive 3 free sessions with our Mayhew Animal Behaviourist. This sweetest of souls will make the most loyal and loving companion for someone who will take the time to love and understand her sensitive nature. Belle has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and is up to date with flea and worm treatment. Belle has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed.
