Bella is a young female, estimated to be be around 2 to 2.5 years old. She appears to be a German Shepherd with a touch of another breed in her. She's petite and trim.
Bella has been friendly with all people (and especially loves men). She also adores kids. She is affectionate, and she loves to snuggle. At a recent adoption event, she sought out attention from kids, and was happy whenever they came to pet or cuddle with her. She's been taught to go low to the ground in her approach to kids, not because she's cringing but because she's trying to be gentle in her approach and not overwhelm little ones.
We think she has the potential to be a great family dog. She could also be a good "first dog." However, she's a high energy adolescent who needs regular exercise. She would enjoy a basic obedience class too (and likely be the star of the class).
She is good with other dogs in her household, and she likes to play. Like most smart adolescent Shepherds, she may get into mischief if she gets bored. We do not know how Bella does with cats, as there are no cats in her household.
Bella is already house trained.
