Meet Bella, a lovely 1-year-old German Shepherd. This beautiful girl is currently seeking a loving and understanding home that can help her blossom into the confident, happy pup she deserves to be.
Bella may seem nervous at first, but once she settles, she will soon show her playful demeanour. She’s a spirited companion who loves to chase, and run away with her toys, However, her initial wariness in new situations means we are looking for a patient and understanding home with adopters that are willing do multiple meets to build up a bond with Bella.
Due to being under-socialized, Bella can be a bit nervous, especially around other dogs. This sweetheart is looking for a home that understands the unique needs of German Shepherds and can provide the guidance and support she requires. She’s not recommended for first-time adopters, as we do feel she will thrive best with someone familiar with the breed.
In terms of manners, Bella has a good foundation. She sits on command and offers her paw, showcasing her eagerness to please. However, she might get a little too excited and jump up, so her new family will need to gently discourage this behaviour. She’s a quick learner, especially when treats are involved, and trading toys for treats is one of the skills she has picked up whilst being in our care.
In essence, Bella is a wonderful companion waiting to shine with the right family. If you have experience with German Shepherds, understand the importance of patience and positive reinforcement, and are ready to provide Bella with the love and stability she needs, then you might be the perfect match.
