Bella came to us back in April 2022 after she was struggling to live amicably with the children in the home she was in.
She sadly bit the child in the home twice over food, for this reason Bella is only suited to living in a quiet adult only home and as the only pet.
Bella walks lovely on a harness and lead and knows her basic commands such as sit and stay. She would not be suitable to be let off the lead unless in an enclosed area.
Bella can be reactive to other dogs out on walks, but her focus can be brought back with food or a ball. She is responsive to training and is eager to please.
Bella is not destructive and was known to be house trained in her previous home, we have found her to be clean in her kennel as well.
Bella is a lovely little dog but is a typical terrier, independent with a bit of sass. She will do absolutely anything for a ball and would spend all day playing fetch if she could, she also enjoys using her nose and playing hide and seek with balls or food, this is a great way to stimulate her.
Bella does have slight trust issues and can struggle with being touched around her head and neck, this can make getting a harness on her a little tricky however, we have recently sought the help of a behaviourist and we are working on this with training and distraction techniques following the advice given. Bella’s new owner must be committed to working through this with her.
Bella has a common condition affecting one of her knee caps, known as luxating patella. This is not causing her any problems currently but does increase the likelihood of her developing arthritis in that leg later in life. Though this is not problematic for her currently, PACT will cover any treatment needed later in life related to this particular condition.
