Meet Princess Bella!
Princess Bella is a sweet 1-year-old black and white pit bull mix with a lovable personality. She has had a tough time settling into the shelter and can be nervous with new people, but once you gain her trust, she will run zoomies all over your heart!
This girl is the best of both worlds — active and playful, yet cuddly and sweet. She loves to run around after tennis balls and plush toys, and once she gets all her energy out with a fun game of fetch, she’ll happily lean into you for snuggles. She loves butt rubs and will practically sit in your lap for more attention. Lap dogs come in all shapes and sizes! She’s a big fan of tasty treats, and will happily sit for a snack.
Princess Bella would benefit from a home with people willing to give her time to settle in and show her true, goofy self! She loves playing with other dogs, and often has play dates at the shelter. She might benefit from a home with a confident canine companion to help her come out of her shell and realize the world isn’t such a scary place. Because Princess Bella can be nervous in new situations and with loud noises, she would benefit from a home with a securely-fenced yard, so she can feel safe for potty breaks and playtime. She can be stressed by seeing lots of people and dogs outside, so a low-traffic neighborhood would be best for her. Princess Bella seems to be house-trained and crate-trained, but she is looking for a home with adopters who are willing continue training her, so she can learn lots of other cool tricks.
Since this sweet girl can be nervous with new people, she would do best in a home with no children under the age of 16. Princess Bella has shown that she is much more comfortable with women than with men, so she would probably prefer a home without many male visitors. With time and trust, Princess Bella will make an amazing companion and friend. Princess Bella is spending time in a quiet area of the shelter, so you won’t see her in our main kennel. If you’re interested in meeting Princess Bella, please ask about her at the front desk.
