BELLA – 15642
Gone - 12-20-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Bella. My animal id is #15642. I am a desexed female tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a returns on 13-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Sorry, this pet is for new hope partners only.
Bella is at risk for behavioral reasons. Bella has resource guarding tendencies, and is also nervous or fearful in new environments and around both people and dogs who are new to her. Bella has been monitored for a mild intermittent cough the past couple of days, but we do not presently feel this is worriesome. Bella is otherwise a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bella is beautiful!! Redundant? Yes, but it’s worth saying twice, as she’s stunning. Her ears like calla lilies framing her beautiful face, her pink squishy nose you’ll want to boop, her head tilt when I make kissy sounds at her, her one blue/one hazel eye making soft eye contact and asking, do you love me? And this beauty is more than just skin deep, she’s beautiful inside as well, friendly affectionate, smart and loving. Bella is excited to meet new people, jumping up to say hello how do you do?, is “relaxed and respectful” with kids, and after some possible initial shyness with other dogs in playgroup, she solicits play. If we were in school, she’d be Miss Congeniality without a doubt! She’s a baby who needs love, positive reinforcement (aka lots of treats) for good behavior, a cozy bed, nutritious food, and more love. Our beauty will return it all tenfold as she’s ready to be your best friend forever and ever.
