All About Me

Bella Moon is very loving, affectionate, and friendly. She is looking for a home with at least a 5-foot fenced yard, as she loves the outdoors and prefers to spend most of her day outside (as long as she is not left on her own when no one is home). You can find her in a lawn chair when she needs a rest from playing in the yard (see her photo), checking out the world or napping.

She also adores going for walks and loves riding in the car. At this time, Bella is best suited for a home with no other dogs or young children, as she is still practicing interacting with new dogs and people. She has, however, learned a healthy respect for cats!

Highly intelligent and motivated to please, Bella learns very quickly and in just a week mastered Sit, Out, Wait (even when she's in the car), No, and Down (check out her video playing her favorite game of fetch-she even will bring the toy back to you! (Check out her video!) Although she is not crate-trained she does not need to be crated, as she doesn't bother any belongings and is potty trained.

Bella is already great with loose-leashing walking, and her foster mom says, "It's so relaxing walking with her.

Very curious and attentive, Bella will let you know when there is a stray chicken or bird threatening the well-being of the household.

An independent gal, she often entertains herself playing with her toys. And she is respectful of them and never tears any of them up. See her delight with a squeaky one: (Check out her video!)

Bella sleeps about 8.5 hours during the night and enjoys a nap for an hour or so daily.
