This is Bella, a beautiful black and white English Setter. She turned 8 years old on March 9th.
Bella is a sweet girl who is housetrained, knows several commands including sit, stay, and come. She is very well mannered: Watch Bella working on her sit-stay in this video. Bella does great in the house and can be trusted to be loose when nobody is home. Bella gets along with her foster setter siblings. She is working on her leash walking manners.
Bella is very friendly. Her favorite thing in the entire world is to snuggle up with you on the couch so that you can't resist the urge to scratch her head and chest. If you stop, Bella will remind you to continue by giving you a cheek-on-cheek rub. She sits calmly for grooming and has a lovely soft coat which is great for cuddling into. And she loves to talk to you; she has that setter "aroo" down pat.
Bella also enjoys playing with stuffie toys - watch this adorable video of her playing with her stuffed groundhog.
At age 8, Bella is still an active girl. She likes to chase the squirrels out of the yard and stays on watch for other critters. Given Bella's desire to chase the cats at the vet's office, we think she would be better off in a home without cats or rabbits.
Bella loves meeting new people because that's more people to pet and love on her. She is just a wonderful girl and a joy to foster. She is ready for a loving forever home full of cuddles.
Bella sends out a big "aroo" of thanks to Mike Warfield for his support as she waits for her forever home!
Steve, Teri & Miss Sophia Sauer hope Bella will have lots of squirrels to chase and critters to watch in her forever home.
Pam Miller hopes that sweet Bella will soon be snuggling on the couch with her new family.
