Bella Ragazza, means a beautiful girl in Italian, and she is exactly that!! Bella is a sweet 6 year old golden retriever girl who loves to chase a ball and will even bring it back a good deal of the time. She is housebroken and is eager to learn more on how to walk better on a leash. Bella is not fond of sharing treats or food with other dogs, so works out best if she has a family's attention all to herself.
Bella was be completely vetted thanks to your donations
, including vaccinations, heartworm tested, and extra blood work to check for a thyroid issue to make sure everything looks good.
Bella entered Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, GRRR due to a divorce we were told. She was in a foster-to-adopt home where she was just fine for sometime, until she snapped at the owner when getting brushed. Bella likes to show she is in charge.
Unfortunately then we had another set back and had to board Bella from November until early February, as we had no foster homes without other dogs. The cost was $1,800.
Then we found a foster who could keep Bella by herself in an indoor kennel. She has been there every since waiting for the right family to come along. We have a volunteer currently taking her to training, where she is thriving. Bella is so very sweet and such a good girl. She loves your attention and is just a snuggle bunny. She does need a dog savvy family who will continue her training from day one and work with her through some "I'm in charge" biting issues. She only does this on occassion when she doesn't get her way or you take something of value from her. This is not a first time owner dog and we will help you in this process.
Naturally you should have no children in your home and no other dogs. Bella also needs a physical fenced yard. Her perfect family would be a man or couple who's children are grown who really understand how to be the authority figure in a gentle caring manner in the home. We will help guide you on how to care for Bella. The key will be to listen to these suggestions.
