Meet Bella!

Bella is about 2 years old. She is a belge rough female with a wonderful sweet personality. She knows some commands and is crate trained. She is microchipped and is current on her immunizations. She is on heartworm preventative.

Bella is pretty well housebroken – but you have to keep her schedule – she will not let you know it is time to go out – but does pretty well if you keep her schedule.

Bella is a big dog at heart- she will take on a Great Dane if on a walk down the street. She doesn’t realize that she only weighs 13 lbs. She walks well on a leash but does pull hard and could use some help with leash manners.

Bella will be spayed before she goes to her new home. Luna – also listed on our web site – is Bella’s puppy – and they can be placed together if you are looking for two griffs.

Bella is located in Youngstown, Ohio.

If you would like more information, contact Vicki. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Bella has been Adopted!

Bella went to her new home first thing this morning. I spoke with them this afternoon and they are crazy about her. She is a bundle of energy. They have a 22 lb. 4 year old griff named Higgins. Bella – who weighs 13 lbs. – quickly let Higgins know that the new boss is home now and then she wore him out playing. He finally had to go to bed for a big nap and Bella was still looking for a game. They walked nicely together and are going to be best pals.
