Bella is a 3-4 year old female Labrador Cross. Bella is a rescue from Cyprus who has been living in Linlithgow for over 2 years. Due to a change in her family’s circumstances and through absolutely no fault of her own she finds herself looking for a new home. Bella is a lovable, alert, girl. She is very quick to learn and always ready for action. Bella would be happy to share her home with another dog after managed introductions.
Bella is playful, energetic and loves to be on the go. She has a few tricks she’ll perform. She is very loving and likes to cuddle up on the sofa at the end of a long walk with her human. She is good on lead and walks with a harness. If she starts to pull you just need to stand still and she will correct herself and walk on a loose lead. She is good with other dogs both within her household and when out walking on lead. If off lead then she will bark and bounce and chase around other dogs to try to get them to play. Bella can run like the wind and has tremendous stamina.
Bella is best kept on a lead. She has a high chase and hunting drive and if a deer or hare is spotted she throws caution to the wind and gives chase. Recall in this type of situation is something that would need intensive, ongoing training. She is good with people but can be nervous of some men until she gets to know them – same with children, but she’s a bit too bouncy for anyone under 13 and may be nervous of children who are not calm. She would not like to share her new home with cats or other small furries.
Bella sleeps well all night on the sofa or dog bed in living room. She has never had the need to be crated. She has shown no separation anxiety and can be left for several hours with no issues. Bella would love a home with people who enjoy being outdoors and possibly love to run or cycle or even make a terrific canicross partner. Bella is very calm at a home and great in the house so a calm environment at home would be ideal. She would love a garden where she can play safely. Bella is simply adorable and loving. She is such a gentle soul who enjoys living life to the full.
