This is Bella Baby (we've been calling her Cracklynn). She is very affectionate, loves being pet and hanging out with her people! She does prefer women over men, but is ok with men who want to work with her so she'll bond to them too.
She is a very smart little girl who would probably love a farm to help work at, or even just a family who wants a dog to train and work with. She can be pretty bossy so her family will need to be ready to get to work training her about the new house rules! We think she'd love to go to training classes, maybe for obedience, agility, or tricks!
True to her breed, she is high energy and super smart! She lives in a suburb right now and she's loving going on walks. She is actually doing pretty well with leash training.
She goes potty outside and seems to be house trained! She is just starting to show interest in toys and chews. She has discovered peanut butter filled kongs and spent hours working on it. She loves taking all her toys out of the toy box.
Her original foster had a cat and after chasing it a couple times (she backed down from cat I'm told) she did just fine. She hasn't seemed interested in the ducks at her foster home, but she's still being leashed when near them.
She does not like her kennel but has improved 10 fold since we started working on it. We've also found she likes the wire kennels best. She sleeps quietly through the night and during my work day and she is almost always quiet when I work from home.
Kids are scary to some dogs and she didn't love the kids in her first home. She does need slow introductions to other dogs.
She is a good girl who wants a job and someone to please. Could that be you?
