*If you are interested in Bella, please complete our adoption application which can be found here:
This pretty girl is Bella. Bella is a 10-12 year old poodle/maltese mix who is as sweet as they come! All this senior wants to do is cuddle with you, and follow you around everywhere. Bella came into rescue when her owner passed away, and the rest of the family knew they couldn’t give Bella the care and attention she needed, so they wanted to find her a great home. She is doing well, and loving life.
Bella is potty trained, and has great manners. There will of course be an adjustment period once she finds her forever family, but she’s very smart and just wants to please. Bella does very well with other dogs, though she definitely is more of a people dog. She would do well in a home with another older/ calm doggie, or as an only pup where she can have the attention of her people all to herself! She is a very easy going dog who just wants to go for short walks, and chill the rest of the time at home in the bed (hers, or yours!). Due to Bella’s age a home with older children, or an adult only home would be best. Bella would make a great addition to a calm household with people who want a low energy dog who just wants to hang out with her family all day everyday!
Bella does have some medical issues that her forever family will need to continue to keep an eye on, and handle appropriately. She has 3 collapsed disks in her lower back, as well as no cartilage in her back knees. This is being treated with an anti-inflammatory and a joint supplement for to manage the pain. Bella will be on these for the rest of her life to keep her comfortable. She moves around a little differently than other dogs, but she doesn’t let that hold her back from enjoying life, and the companionship of her humans. She does well on short walks, and the rest of the time just wants to be relaxing at home with her people. Bella is a great companion who is looking forward to finding her dream forever family to give her the best home to live out her life as the sweetest senior ever!
