Bella is a sweet 5 year old Brittany who loves adventures! She enjoys running, hiking, and even swimming. Bella successfully lived with young children and a mid-size male Shepherd mix since she was a puppy.At 50 pounds, Bella considers herself to be a lap dog (even though she is working to lose a few pounds). She is house- and crate-trained and is used to being crated during workdays.Bella was surrendered to ABR because her owners wanted her to be in a safer environment as she kept escaping through their invisible fence. In typical Brittany fashion, if given the opportunity to run and explore, Bella will seize it. Bella’s ideal home would have a six-foot privacy fence so that she can run to her heart’s content, and she would also thrive in an active family with multiple long walks per day.Bella is in search of a forever home or foster-to-adopt home as she is stressed in her current foster placement. There are two dogs in the household and it is not a “match made in heaven” with the dynamics between them when they are all together. With slow introductions and patience, Bella should be able to successfully live with another canine sibling! She has not had any exposure to cats but does have a high prey drive.Bella takes a Proin tablet twice a day to control her urinary incontinence and, since in foster care, a vet has prescribed a very small dose of Trazodone as needed to help her anxiety levels with the sudden transition to a foster home.The need for this med can be revisited once she has settled into her new home.Bella is a sweet and active Brittany who loves all people and needs a home where she can have more freedom and attention.
