Before we met Bella we asked the owner if he wanted to keep Bella if she behaved better and his response was 50/50. So, we asked the owner to get Bella spayed, vaccinated and chipped for her health and in preparation of potentially rehoming her.
When we met Bella she was confined 24/7 because her owner didn't know how to temper her anxiety and he feared for his little dogs. We met with Bella and her owner and set her up initially to be calm to prepare for further training. We provided an appropriate sized kennel for in the home and explained to the owner that she needed more emotional stimulation as a working breed dog.
Bella loves people and will likely do well with larger dog companions with a proper introduction. She is craving structure and attention and is truly a diamond in the rough!
