Bella in Herndon, VA


Here is Bella with her new family…

A true princess, fit for royalty. Meet 6-year-old Blenheim, Bella! She is the sweetest, low maintenance lady in the world. If you’re looking for someone to snuggle up next to you on the couch, this is your girl. 

Bella takes just a little time to warm up. She also doesn’t want to be alone and will follow you around the house. She was used as a breeding dog for her first four years of life, and then was put into a loving home. Unfortunately, her mom needed medical attention and was no longer able to care for her. 

She is healthy but needs to lose a few pounds (don’t we all!). She will go for walks and with some regular exercise she will be able to put on those princess gowns again. 

When she came into rescue the vet told us that she needed a dental (completed) and has a grade 1 heart murmur (which is the lowest of them, just needs to be watched) but otherwise was “good to go”. 

Bella is house trained, sleeps in her bed at night (in a crate). She will make some sounds to let us know that she would rather be with us but will settle down after a few moments. She is fine with other dogs and has met a few in her foster home with no problems. We think she enjoys being around the other dogs. 

She is starting to show her true happiness every day, wagging her tail, smiling and showing off her zoomies. She likes to “watch over her kingdom” in the backyard, and watches her foster brothers play and chase the balls. She is too much of a princess to do that silly stuff with them. Bella would do well with someone who is low key, is home with her as much as they can be and in a calm environment. See Bella in action: Bella
