Belle

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 and doesn't appreciate being overhandled. New owners will need to be able to read her body language and ensure that she has her own private area where she will not be disturbed in order to help her settle and feel safe. Once she’s built up trust with someone, she's quick to show her affectionate side and enjoys receiving attention on her terms. She loves going for walks and will bring her favorite toy along with her to show off to everyone! 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 loyal companion.

Other Notes

Belle becomes stressed when left alone so will need a home where somebody can be around during the day. She will need to live in an all adult home without visiting young children and she would not be suitable to live in a flat due to her vocal nature. Belle will try to avoid contact with other dogs and can 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 other dogs. Belle had two non-cancerous mammary cysts and a sebaceous cyst on her lower back surgically removed whilst at Mayhew. These cysts are commonly seen in dogs. Her new adopter will need to monitor these areas for any new lumps developing and see their private vet for further investigation and advice should they occur. She has also had her ears cleaned whilst at Mayhew and may be prone to wax build up. 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.
