Beautiful Bella - Update July 2022

Bella walks daily with a group of friends both two-legged and four-legged. She is a great coffee hang-out girl. Bella is a golden mix that came from a tough situation in the Central Valley and was adopted when she was about 6 months old. She is beautiful blonde, short-haired girl. She weighs about 60 pounds and has basic manners once she bonds with her family. She is missing part of her brain that controls movement and balance - something called Dandy-Walker Syndrome. She is now on prednisone and it has really helped her movement and balance. Bella is also very fearful of people. She clearly loves the family who surrendered her and her foster mom, so she can bond with people but it will likely be a lengthy project. Bella has loved having a dog sibling who she looks to for guidance, so a calmer dog of any size would be nice to have for her as well. If you have the patience to let Bella get to know you, you can provide a safe, fairly quiet environment for her with no kids under age 8, we would love to tell you more about her.
