Bella is an affectionate Ruby Cavalier mix who is approximately 2-years-old. She was found on July 4th running around in Indianapolis, and she was placed with Cavalier Rescue USA when her owners could not be found.
Bella has a wonderful personality. Bella is playful, and she loves to play with all kinds of toys, especially squeaky toys and balls. She also enjoys running outside and playing fetch. So, a home with a good sized fenced in yard is a must. After a play session, she wants lots of cuddles, and she will happily sit with you on the couch. Bella does not like being alone. She just wants to be with her “person,” and she will follow you around the house.
Bella gets along really well with her foster family’s other Cavaliers, and she enjoys playing and cuddling with them. However, she does get jealous occasionally if someone else is getting attention. She is great in the car and enjoys going for a ride in her car seat. She seems to do well with children too.
Bella is completely housebroken, and she has not had a single accident in her foster home. She does not like being crated, but she does well when gated in the living room and kitchen while her foster family is gone.
Bella likes going for a walk, but she is still learning to walk well on a leash. She pulls a bit, and she gets scared of other dogs and will bark at them when she encounters them on a walk. So, additional practice with walking on a leash will be necessary.
Bella does get startled by unexpected noises (loud cars, police cars, the neighbor’s dog barking, etc.), and she will bark in response. Her fear of noises might explain why she got lost around the 4th of July.
Bella is up-to-date on her vaccines, and she was spayed while in rescue. She also takes monthly flea and heartworm preventatives. Bella does have some food sensitivity which we are addressing with a limited ingredient dog food.
Bella would be happiest in a family where someone is home most of the time. Her forever home should have a securely fenced yard with enough room for her to run and play fetch. Bella is a wonderful and loving girl who will make an excellent companion.
