Bella was born in May 2019 and was brought into the shelter with her mother Phoenix and brother Harry as a very young puppy. They were all very thin and suffering with Mange.
She was very shy for a long time but is now very playful, active and friendly.
Bella was born in another Animal Welfare Shelter to another of our rescues, Phoenix, along with her brother Harry. They were bought to the Sanctuary in July 2019, when Bella and Harry were only 3 months old and very unsociable.
She spent all her time with her brother Harry until Harry got distemper and had to be isolated in quarantine for a few months.
After that – they never spent time together. Harry now stays with a pack of dogs in one of the bamboo kennels and Bella spends all her time in the office area with her mother Phoenix.
Bella is an amazing climber. She was able to climb trees to jump over the shelter fence. She never runs away – she just likes to wander.
We have now raised the fence so she can’t get out.
She is really friendly with people she knows but is shy with strangers.
For some reason, she gets picked on a lot by other dogs – especially Patty.
We would love to find her a home together with her mother Phoenix.
As well as great physical and mental exercise (for the walkers too!), taking dogs out on the lead outside the Sanctuary gets our rescues better prepared for that new life when they get adopted. Some dogs don't need leads, and walk with us wherever we go. This is Jonathan's tribe - every Wednesday he completes 5 or 6 walks in the company of TinTin, Phoenix and Bella. They bound ahead and clear the way while Jonathan and the lead-bound dog follow on behind. It's just possible that they are the best exercised dogs in the Province, as they are there on EVERY walk!
Here are some of today's walked dogs out having fun in the woods behind the Sanctuary. If you are local, and can COMMIT to a regular time slot each week for months on end, then get in touch with us to see about becoming a DAS Volunteer.
